Alright game geeks—and I know there's a lot of you, I used to work at a local game shop—have I got some news for you.

ICv2 says:
In June, Mayfair will release Catan, Traveler Edition, a new geomorphic edition that folds to fit in a lockable, trapezoidal box with a carrying handle. The game board includes collapsing trays for peg storage, and features double-sided tiles (which means that there are only hundreds of board permutations, instead of thousands). 
MSRP will be $45—so, really not much lower than the original game. But, still, I don't see how making Catan more portable can be a bad thing. 

ICv2 goes on to discus the theory behind the Catan expansions and upcoming improvements to their website, if you're into that kind of thing.
