The Settlers are
escaping from your monitors and hard-drives! Collectible Figures
Until now, the eponymous heroes of Blue Byte's strategy-packed economic simulation series, THE SETTLERS, have never actually
left the spacious confines of the computers in which they happily reside. But all that is set to change … now gamers and
collectors alike have their first opportunity to come face-to-face with Blue Byte's industrious little characters! Blue Byte
has released THE
SETTLERS: COLLECTIBLE FIGURES. The must-have items are in stores in the U.K. from January 19.

The Settlers III Ultimate Collection has been reviewed by the Russell Group on Games. Here's an excerpt from the highly favorable appraisal:
"The combat model is appropriately tailored to the target audience. This is a game that the whole family can enjoy. What little fighting that does occur is not particularly gruesome
(i.e. there are no blood splatters or severed limbs left lying on the ground). In fact, when one of your soldiers is eliminated, you see his spirit ascend to the heavens as an
indication of his demise. It's a cute effect and in keeping with the overall warmth of the design. (Hardcore gamers be forewarned; the cartoon-ish graphics may put you off at first
look but give the game a chance.)"

Something new for the SETTLERS
III World Ranking Lists:
THE SETTLERS III HALL OF FAME!
To make the SETTLERS III World Ranking Lists more exciting, we have
tinkered with the rules. Players that are resting on their laurels and inactive in defending
their positions will now gradually lose points. After a week of inactivity, every further
day without play will mean a loss of 15 points for single players. For clans the loss will
start after two weeks of inactivity.
For the best of the best we now have the SETTLERS HALL OF FAME. All players and clans that
now achieve a place in the top ten of the World Ranking Lists will be inducted into the
SETTLERS HALL OF FAME! The starting page will now also show the best three players and best
