ASMODEE ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH JUST FUNKY FOR CATAN MERCHANDISE

18 Nov - 2021

Just Funky plans to release a range of homeware and accessories

Asmodee Entertainment is pleased to announce an agreement with Just Funky LLC for a range of fan-focused homewares and accessories based on the hugely successful CATAN tabletop gaming brand.

CATAN is one of the best-known and most-loved brands in tabletop gaming. Now one of the world’s most popular modern board games is set to become a true lifestyle brand following the announcement by Asmodee Entertainment of a wide and growing range of licensing agreements across categories. Their latest agreement is with Just Funky, a leading gift and collectibles manufacturer, to produce a range of CATAN merchandise that will allow fans to express their love of this bestselling board game.

“As someone who loves to play CATAN, I’m very excited about kicking off our new partnership with Asmodee Entertainment!” said Angie Hoyer, Senior Licensing Manager at Just Funky.

Just Funky plans to release a range of homeware and accessories, so CATAN fans can display their passion through items as varied as coasters, glassware, wall art, throw blankets, lamps, tote bags, lanyards, stationery and more.

With more than 10 years of experience developing licensed products alongside major gaming brands, and recently nominated for Licensing Excellence Award for their range of Dragon Ball Z inspired tableware, Just Funky is the perfect partner for the project.

“CATAN is a cherished part of millions of people’s social lives,” says Alexander Thieme, Licensing Manager for Consumer Products at Asmodee Entertainment. “Building a new world on the untouched island of Catan, haggling for resources, and fun around the table are things I would have loved to express in other areas of life back in my very active CATAN days. It is wonderful to have Just Funky on board to help make CATAN a true lifestyle brand. We love their products and can’t wait to see what they will come up with to excite the fans.”

The first items in Just Funky’s new CATAN product line are planned to launch in 2022.
