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 firstname.lastname@example.org We are looking forward to your feedback!

I really like Catan. One of my favorite board games of all time. But is completely annoying to play it in iOS. I could bear the un-optimized GUI, but the constant crashes make this almost unplayable. Avoid it at all costs.
The only way to play this game is to get used to constantly crashing and reconnecting multiples times literally every time you play. Who knows why.. the developers probably don’t want to pay for decent servers.
Overall, this game is really fun! But it’s frustrating how rigged it is. When you get ahead of the AI the dice suddenly starts rolling tons of 7’s and they always put the robber on your spaces. Then with the robber on your space it starts rolling the number of that tile so you don’t get the resources. Also, the AI seem to always have an unlimited supply of knight cards that they use against you.
I cannot understand for the life of me why they haven’t created a decent app for this game by now. The dice are so fixed in this game it’s infuriating. It’s just like let the dice be random. let the cards be random. I haven’t a clue why the app developers think this is a fun way to play. There is almost always a favorite, you can tell which player it is from the start. Beyond that the game glitches and it’s hard to change perspective of game board. Just a lot that really could be cleaned up. So disappointing because the board games are so good.
The app crashes way too often!!!! it can be really annoying when playing live opponent’s who are very slow, leave or get disconnected.
This app glitches constantly. I love the game but wish the app didn’t crash and glitch every game
Can you add timers or motivators for slow players to play faster so we don’t have to wait 2-3 minutes every turn please?
The app is crashing every time I play.
bought the additional packs and the app crashes any time i try to play them.
The random number generator is a joke.
