Mayfair Games is a game company that specializes in board, card, and roleplaying games. Until January 2016, they were the English-language licensee of The Settlers of Catan game series, including Star Trek Catan.
Founded in 1981, the company was originally known for their Role-Aids line of supplements for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. In 1997, they shut down for financial reasons and were bought out by Iron Crown Enterprises (ICE).
The company released Star Trek Catan in August 2012 and an expansion pack in August 2013.
