"Catan", the legendary strategy game provides gaming fun anytime, anywhere. True to the original game, you can compete with up to four players for the most settlements, the longest roads and the largest army. You can trade with each other and claim the precious land with all its resources. The game allows you to challenge other Catan fans online via cross-platform multiplayer to prove your strategy skills or play against the AI: Various computer opponents, each with their own individual characteristics, will prove themselves worthy competitors: the pirate Jean, who knows no compromise, Vincent the merchant, who never allows himself to be cheated, Sean the knight, who takes what is rightfully his... The popular Catan expansions "Seafarers", "Cities and Knights" and two new special scenarios are available as In-App purchases. The complete Seafarers expansion includes more than 10 additional scenarios with an extensive campaign. Become Harbormaster, discover new islands and extra game elements like ships, gold fields, treasures and pirates. Ahoy! The Cities and Knights expansion introduces various new gameplay mechanics that add even more variety to Catan. Invest new trade goods in city improvements to build one of the three metropolises of Catan – but beware of the barbarians attracted by Catan’s new wealth! You’ll need your best knights to fend them off! C&K contains a short campaign and 7 challenging maps. Exciting adventures await you in the two new scenarios "Enchanted Land" and "The Great Canal". Vanquish dragons and bag their treasures or build a canal to help barren grain fields bloom once more. Features: - Available languages: English, German, French, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese - Original "Settlers of Catan" rule set - Update 4.0+: Synchronous online multiplayer games - Smart computer opponents with individual strategies - Scrollable game board including zoom option - Freely combinable game settings - Game statistics - Comprehensive tutorial - Seafarers LITE: New scenario "The 4 Islands" and two additional game variants - Cities and Knights LITE: Test the new expansion in the scenario “The first Island” - 3 different graphic sets to choose from ***** Catan FAQ: Question: An expansion seems gone after an update or reinstallation of Catan or after restoring the device? Answer: Don’t worry! Your initial purchase is already saved in your iTunes account. You can restore your InApp purchases by selecting the restore-option in the Catan IAP menu. Question: I lost my campaign progress after reinstalling, updating or restoring my device. Is there any way to restore it? Answer: When saved games can’t be automatically restored, we’ve integrated a cheat code: In the campaign mode go to select player and enter „CatanWarp*“ (* = 1–15) as your player name and confirm. Exit the game via the home button and restart it. The campaign can now be continued from the specified level number (1–15). Levels up to the specified number will be unlocked in the custom game mode as well. Question: Are dice rolls really random? Answer: Of course! All dice rolls are 100% random and not modified in any way. We’re avid Catan players ourselves. We’ve played the iOS version hundreds of times while developing the program. There have been times when we won and lost a few games in a row because of the dice - just like when playing the board game! ***** Questions or suggestions for improvements: Mail to We are looking forward to your feedback!

Don’t waste your time

The robber doesn’t hit you until the tenth round, then it takes up permanent residence on your spaces.

APP issues

My husband and I have played this for years and have never had a problem but this week, he tried to build a ship and couldn’t (and he clearly could). It prevented him from extending his longest road. Today, I had a city and 1 knight activated, once barbarians hit, I was forced to lose my city although there were enough knights activated. It’s disappointing. Please fix these glitches.

Please give me a refund, can’t exit, limited options true to the board game and simply not in depth enough.

Recent update is bad

I really enjoy this version of the game but recent update has caused it to constantly crash and force me to re login every time.

Hours of fun

A great way to learn how to beat your friends IRL

Annoying but fun when works

Catan makes you login about every time you play (after their most recent updates as of 11/22). They email a password which are random letters & symbols hard to remember and you cannot change the password (says you can but you can’t). There’s other annoying features but this the worst. Why have to login to play? I don’t on other gaming Apps I use! Gives you a few plays without logging in then forces you too. Someone is taking themselves too seriously! Cannot recommend

Choosing matches would be nice

I would like it if there were options instead of just whatever random game they put you in. I think it would be very helpful.

Enjoyed this game for some time yes it has its issues and quirks and dice rolling is an adventure. But I can’t get past this recent server migration. I can’t get in my passwords are gone I can’t reset as I do not receive a code and support is non existent. Is it time to find a new board game? I would be hesitant to download this till they have this corrected. Developers please get this straightened out.

Keeps getting frozen

The Game takes a lot of Time just to find you a Player, Once the players are all in, it won’t just start you need to tap a green arrow..!! Many times even after tapping that green arrow it goes back and doesn’t select.. After all the waiting time when the game finally starts..!!!, there is no time limit to each player playing their turn. And sometimes out of nowhere it kicks you out of the game and gives an error message that you’ve been kicked out by the host..!! Like seriously..?! For no apparent reason..!! And if at all after all this when you continue to play the game (if you’re lucky enough) then the game gets frozen like 2-3 times and the app shuts down..!! Also while playing the “”Building-Cost-card”” is no where visible..!!

Wish it was better

The odds definitely end up against you in I probably ways. Also hasn’t been updated to fit newer iPhone screens.
