"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!

Bad game

I was very frustrated with this! I was trying to log in and every time it said login failed! It was quite annoying because all I wanted to do was play. I typed in the correct information and it still didn’t work

Did I pay for this?

It could be so good, buts so buggy. And there desperately needs to be a timer.

Would be 5 stars if not so buggy

I’m playing on a 2019 iPad mini running iPadOS 13.4.1. This app is annoyingly buggy sometimes. Development/progress cards are sometimes not visible until I close and restart the app. This presents a problem when playing online obviously. Sometimes the app freezes during online play. Other than these bugs (which never get fixed because the devs don’t ever seem to update the software) the interface is good, intuitive, and faithful to the board game. Would be 5/5 if not for the bugs.

Allows slow play

I wish you would monitor slow play, it’s annoying. I have to leave these type of games.

How Catan I Live Without You?

I think I bought this about 4 years ago and I still enjoy playing it. You can make it very challenging. It’s not the same strategy as playing with friends, but it has provided me with new ways of thinking about the game.

Game board ugly as sin

The board is impossible to decipher and the gameplay is unintuitive. Strangely the Catan Universe game nailed it, so I don’t understand the issue. Crashes a lot as well.

This is a classic game I used to play with my parents. We had the whole game set, I was delighted they had an app for it. The game is hard and not made for the dumb. I enjoy thinking and the strategies involved. The game is very realistic to how it is played in real life.

Play Stops

Been playing for a few days and I’ve had multiple games that have ended because the game freezes. I originally thought it was someone intentionally stalling, but the AI has done it several times as well. Really frustrating.

I set my settlements up in places where the dice is more likely to add up to..... Candamir rolls a 2 William rolls a 12… love the game, hate the algorithm.

Doesn’t work on my xs max

I have tired to play this game for days. It just closes on my every time.
