Settlers of Catan Party Tray

I’ve hosted many game nights. I’ve also hosted many themed dinner parties. So, why not, at last, combine the two with a Settlers of Catan Party Tray?

Using hexagonal containers, I created an edible, 3D Settlers of Catan game board of snacks to nourish the most diligent of road builders.

Of course, not to be confused with the 3D-Printed Settlers of Catan Game Board I played with friends.

To build my Food Tray Game Board, I wanted affordable, food-safe containers. I found just that in these Plastic Hexagonal Weigh Boats and even had some to spare for a Year of Plenty of repeat occurrences. Once they arrived, I used transparent tape to combine them into a larger tray. Due to their flimsiness as a whole, I placed the whole board upon a tray for easy serving.

Now, for the resources. I wanted tasty items that worked cohesively to match game components as well as match each other for tasty party snacks. This was the result:

  • Broccoli for Lumber
  • Salsa for Brick
  • Cauliflower for Wheat
  • Green grapes for Sheep
  • Black grapes for Ore
  • Hummus for Desert
  • Carrots for Roads, Settlements, and Cities
  • Blue corn chips for Ocean

Game cabinet filled with games including Settlers of Catan for game night

The Game Night was a huge success, and I’ve still got 81 more containers to build out more boards for future parties. I guess I’ll just have to host another soon!
