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!

Catan Classic App User Reviews & Comments

Skeptical from reviews but own experience differsReading the reviews I was a bit worried it wouldn't be what I'd like...I.e. Dice rigged or teaming up, etc. I can say, from my experience, that the dice can screw you or it can screw the AI just as well. It's just...random...like it's supposed to be. Only thing that's unusual is that AI will sometimes play knight cards to steal/or just block you without a strategy to it past that...but I have friends who do the same. You can lose games like this, of course, but that's catan! Great for playing with buddies, we actually opt out of setting up the whole board game now for the convenience of the app. For those that did wish this was a "play on your own time app," it isn't that, so be aware (you can't be playing and leave for hours). Awesome app - thank you to the creators!.Version: 4.6.2

Why not fix the obvious problems?You have hundreds of reviews telling you about the AI playing dozens of robber moves on the player in a row. I’ve had my entire hand emptied multiple times. It’s an obvious abuse of the rules. And they just happen to take the resource they needed and that you refused to trade them, every single time. I’ve literally had each AI play a knight card, move the robber from one of my blocks to the other, then magically roll a 7 and move it back to my other block. All of the AI did this back to back, and no, I wasn’t even in the lead at the time. It’s more than a little broken guys. Sure it’s still fun, and it’s still beatable, but when you have games like that it’s not fun anymore. Simple fix guys, quit ignore it..Version: 4.7.0

Great UI, Ridiculous AI!I’ve gotta give credit for the design of the game - it’s amazing. But the AI is laughably flawed. I say “laughably” because I’ve already pushed through the confusion, denial, anger and fuming stages of playing the app. At this point I just laugh out loud when the AI players move through absurdly ridiculous scenarios to strip me of all my cards and roll anything but the numbers where I have settlements and cities (how many times can you roll only 3s, 11s, 7s and 12s in a roll!!) Oh, but then it does roll a good number, but, of course, only directly after it has placed the robber where you have a city/settlement on that number! And then it rolls it again just to add salt to the back stabbing wound!! Then it teases me by giving me a rainfall of good dice rolls before rolling a seven on my turn and depleting the supply. Wait, I’m not done! I’m in awe of the “ghost” knights - where the AI players suddenly jump all over the board using a string of knight cards that spontaneously appeared in their hands for free. And don’t get me started on the monopoly cards... aargh!!.Version: 4.6.5

Very good!So I just bought this after reading up on family board games and then watching videos. I was interested. So I bought the mobile version. I was excited. Played the tutorial. But I ran into a problem. Probably didn’t see it because the color of the mark on the map, or it wasn’t there, but there was nothing marked to progress through the tutorial. So I had to exit and close the game. Not a problem. Loaded it up, mentioned it was marked on the map where to build, saw it marked. Maybe I got what it was saying and looked. Great. After I touched the green check mark, the camera decided to move by its self to the left—zoom in and lock there. I can move a bit of the camera and zoom not completely out. Oh now what!? Closed and exit the game again and loaded it up. So far so good. No problems yet after those two issues. These problems are probably mentioned already. I would be happy if they were looked into and fixed. Please. This isn’t the free version. So I’d be happy if the issues are fixed because $4.99 may not a lot, but it is supporting the game and the developers/publishers. I’ll definitely rate it five stars once they’re fixed. Forgot to add. I think it would be cute if there was sole animation. Like the water moving, and the tide splashing against the rocks..Version: 4.7.0

Fun, yet frustrating...I like the game Catan, yet I rarely am able to bring it to the tabletop at home. I'm lucky to play it a few times a year. So, I got the app version in order to be able to play it more frequently. It was good fun for about a month. After that it was just irritating. Why? The dice rolling generator is anything but random. The game seems to have a built-in "catch up" feature for the AI players. If I get out to a strong lead, I will get hammered by the computer with the die rolls. Seriously! There have been games where I have gone as many as four rounds without being able to do a thing because the dice have come up 7's four times in a roll, causing me to lose half my cards and then having the AI players continually placing the Thief on my hexes. Meanwhile, the dice roll 11 or 12 again and again so the hexes they control keep on producing. Ridiculous! I had to delete it from my phone or risk throwing it. The game needs a true number randomized to be truly good..Version: 4.6.2

Meh...While many people will play most of their games online with random opponents, I prefer to not have to constantly wait for people to play their turn. That means I've played a significant number of games against the AI. I really tried to give this app a chance, and I may come back to it for the occasional game if I feel like I can handle the frustration--but the AI is just so infuriating to play against! The AI is not nuanced or well-developed, which means that it relies on screwing with the dice rolls to give the AI players an advantage. A game that is essentially about probability management is broken when you lose that very capacity. It takes all the fun out of the game. In fact, I'm only rating this app x3 stars because I can see how I might enjoy online games against random strangers if I was another person... This app is really disappointing to me..Version: 4.6.2

Frustrating AI and unrealistic diceI’d pass on thus. So, the odds of dice mean nothing and if you’re doing well the dice will equalize and knights/7’s will destroy you. Leaving this review after being robbed 6 times in one round and, in islands, having the first 4 islands discovered take 4 of my 6 resource numbers (including 8 and 6) moved to islands as the islands started to get discovered. It’s just a waste of time when 6 or 8 is not rolled dependent of which one you’re on (the little dice tracker helps yo notice its true and on in your head). Another time 10 wasn’t rolled the whole game (standard dice setting) and wouldn’t you knows it, I would get 4 resources of brick and had a brick port on ten. And as other reviewers have said you’ll be up multiple victory points and then there will be three 11’s rolled someone will build 4 roads and 2 settlements and turn one into a city to win with 4 victory points. It’s annoying. Deleting the app now. Annoying because other than the waste of time the rigged gameplay makes it, it’s well done and just like playing..Version: 4.7.2

Faithful Recreation for MobileThere’s not much to say, if you like the game, you’ll likely enjoy the app as it is faithful to the original game. I’ve played 100’s of games and can tell you the dice roll randomly (though you will still lose some games due to them not always following the bell curve), and there’s nothing to back up the game being rigged besides some users feeling cheated that a game had an unusual number of 12’s or 3’s. You can even check the stats at the end of the game to see what numbers were rolled most often. It’s main fault comes with the AI. The computer players have limited intelligence and will allow you to always fish for a better trade deal or build towards a spot you’ll obviously head them off on. This makes it easier to win, but they are still competitive enough to win if the dice don’t fall your way. Lastly, the game will occasionally start to crash by not displaying some pop-ups. This is easily solved by backing out of the game and re-entering, but that should ideally Not be needed. Only bug I’ve found..Version: 4.7.2

Classic strategy gameThis is a lovable game in itself. Even better now that it is on a platform instead of the kitchen table. It needs an update for online matches. There are pauses online, difficulty with the ready matchmaking button, and you need some sort of reminder or way to poke people on their turn. I think sometimes people just close the app on their phone and you don't find out the game is over until you've waited patiently for them to finish a turn that will never happen. I've made additional purchases in the store and when I've put almost $15 into it I want some updates for the crashes, game improvements, and better seamless online play..Version: 4.6.2

Great game, terrible softwareCatan on iOS is fantastic and addictive. Sadly, the implementation is horrific. The app/server hangs. Numerous bugs cause the game to lock up, presumably on the sever side. For instance, often when a human player leave that is replaced by a computer, if the computer have to choose a resource from a gold tile, it never does it and it just spends and spends and spends waiting waiting waiting. Another flaw is that somehow when you play the deserter card, sometimes there is no desertion the card simply disappears and the opponent keeps their night. No idea why this happens. Often, the client app will tell you that everyone is waiting for you, when it’s someone else’s turn and there’s no prom for you to do anything. The whole game hangs and all you can do is leave. Frankly, I’m shocked at the very poor execution. I’m also sad that I paid money for the expansion packs..Version: 4.6.5

Fun, almost like the table topI read the reviews before purchasing the game, almost didn’t buy, but glad I did. Maybe the AI has been updated, because I haven’t experienced unfair play. I have played a custom game 10 times now (hardest difficulty), classic game mode, and won 8 times. The AI plays mostly how I would, doesn’t trade with me when it will give me the win, and places the robber on the person who is winning, or has a needed resource. The roll data at the end of each game is fairly accurate with the probabilities. Seems fair to me. Aside from all that, I haven’t payed for the rest to unlock everything, and haven’t played anything but classic mode with the AI. It’s not quite like playing live with friends at the table, but still fun..Version: 4.6.8

Not really a gameGames involve chance, and this AI is so horrible the game is not really enjoyable after a few plays. Robber is moved to your tile then miraculously that number is rolled a ridiculous number of times. Or, engine will roll five 5s in a row in order to avoid giving you resources. Just wait until you get 8 resources, you have like an 80/20 chance a seven will be rolled immediately after, meanwhile the bots can collect 12, 15, even 18 cards and hold them for round after round. Bots will never trade 5e resources you need, and seem to be able to buy Development cards at will, and know what is in your hand so play the monopoly card at just the right time to wipe you out. I love Catan the board game but this is awful. Given that Catan is the granddaddy of classic games with really good mechanics, I would have hoped this would have been built better, and truly involve the element of chance..Version: 4.7.0

Great functionality; unfair AI and dice generationThe game and its features work remarkably well, and I have nothing but praises. Yet the entire experience is ruined by the fact that the moment you take any lead against the AIs, it's an all-out war against you with the dice included. There will literally be games when I am targeted on 12-15 straight "7"s until I have no cards left after having worked the entire game to place myself in the most favorable position that I could, and not a single dice roll will favor me for sometimes as much as 8 rolls. I like difficult completion, but this is quite clearly broken and unfair for the single player. However, if you don't take any lead, none of this happens; but again, the game is infuriating the moment that you do..Version: 4.6.2

"Catch-Up Mode" is RidiculousAIs get an unfair advantage when the player takes any sort of lead. And they maintain this advantage even after they've caught up. They even trade amongst each other to take down the player in ways no human would because it hurts their own chances. For instance, the blue AI had caught up to me in victory points in one game and was 3 away from winning. Red traded with Blue three times in one turn even though Red was losing by at least 6 points. Yellow's turn came and they also traded with Blue, allowing Blue to win. Why on Earth would that happen? It makes no sense and is very frustrating to watch the AI collaborate against you in ways no human player would ever do. Especially when this turns a calculated win into an incredibly improbable (bordering on mathematically impossible) loss. As other players have noted, this behavior extends to the robber and even seems to affect dice rolls. This is at the very least a poor decision and in my eyes is even unethical (although very minor on the ethics scale, admittedly). Please fix this, I love Catan but this game barely counts as Catan..Version: 4.7.0

Decent but...This is a decent game (I’m playing free version), but every few games the AI will hammer you regardless if the other AI player is sitting at one VP from victory and you’re down 2+ points and have no resource cards, robber will still be played on you. I would have rated this as a 3 star game, however the recent update for iPhone X devices made the game glitchy. Choosing resources for Monopoly cards or trading, the selected resource will get stuck halfway between up/down, the resources and several options are at the very bottom of the screen now so when making a selection I invariably close the game and have to reopen it, and the text and graphics are much smaller (presumably to fit on the smaller screen, but there was no problem before the update). If they can fix this recent update then I would say it could get back to a mediocre 3 star rating. If they could fix the AI to be realistic and less “Kill All Humans,” it could easily be a 4-5 star app (just playing free, so I can’t speak to scenarios or anything else exclusive to the paid version)..Version: 4.6.9

Holy Shizz! I beat the AII was just introduced to the board game this past week whilst on vacation, and as soon as we played our first game -- I was hooked! Decided to give the mobile game a go because I know this will be the only chance I get to get my fix of Settlers in. Read the reviews which said that the AI becomes basically impossible to beat which meant I definitely had to try it. But first, I tried the online experience -- definitely something left to be desired there. Wait time to find a lobby was long, and once I was able to join a game the group suffered connection issues and players exiting and entering the game. So yeah, first online Settlers attempt...not so great. But why wait around for some noobs to POSSIBLY play their turn, when you can get instant gratification from playing AI!? So, I scroll through the custom game set-up mode, and before you know it, I'm laying down the foundation of becoming The Lord of Catan! Lemme tell you, the game held true to the reviews I read. The computer seems to pull off these ridiculous come from behind wins; rolling an absurd amount of 7s, and rallying together to play back to back to back knight cards against you! I was determined though. Every loss was motivation to try a different approach, and what do you know....6 hours later, I finally friggin beat the AI. Yessir. I can finally go to bed!.Version: 4.6.2

Needs improvementThe game is beautifully designed and looks exactly like the board game. But I really wish the computer played fair. At some point during every game I am ahead and then all of a sudden a certain number is rolled multiple times in a row to benefit the computer players. Or 7’s are rolled multiple times and the computer just keeps taking turns placing the robber on me. There have even been several times where it’s obvious the computer is doing everything to benefit one player just to beat me. I understand it’s strategy and it’s impossible to win all the time, but it’s really frustrating when I just keep having to pass the dice without making any moves for SEVEN turns, and then just have one of the computer players catch up to my six point lead and win with 3 victory point cards. I enjoy playing but for an app that ISN'T FREE... it needs to be more user oriented..Version: 4.6.8

Confusing - campaignI purchased an expansion "The Islands" today, as it says that you must purchase an expansion pack in order to activate the campaign. It does not say which one, I would like a REFUND for the expansion pack because there as it it does not activate the campaign, and I can not use it to create new games. I enjoy the game, there are too many 7's and there is no way to see your online opponents stats, which leads to people leaving games if they don't get the tiles they want and then being stuck with random computer players. Lastly during set up - if the player before you takes a long time you can get kicked immediately if they say "x is taking a long time". I enjoy the game - but lack stats on game play and opponents and fleeing players makes it frustrating..Version: 4.6.2

Dice rolls are not randomGames start to get frustrating because you can tell that dice rolls are not being rolled randomly, but almost in favor of the AI. I have played countless games where I have an 8 or 6 spot and they HARDLY get rolled in comparison to some other slots like 4 or 5. I was 15 minutes into one game and 8 was rolled zero times whereas 5 had already been rolled 7 times and 12 had even been rolled 2 times. It’s clearly favored towards the AI and the only way I seem to win is by trying to neighbor their rolls and spread them out so when they get a decent roll I do too. With resources I also find that in most games I will get absolutely robbed for every resource I have and then the AIs have over 10 resources to play from. That’s also due to the unfair rolls and also that the AI tends to “gang up” on the CPU. I might not have the most VP but then I have one resource and a good spot so the AI says I’m gonna wreck this one spot and take that one resource even though someone else is ahead and has 10 resources..Version: 4.7.5

Been playing this for yearsThis has been a good game for years. I can tell you with lots of experience that the game doesn’t cheat. When you get good at it, you start to get disappointed that the AI isn’t smarter, but it is still good enough for some entertaining games. Some parts of it work really well, such as the trading interface. But other parts have some really annoying usability problems, such as not being able to see which items are getting traded by other players or having to click three or four pop-up windows in a row when it could have been done with one. With just a little more effort, the developers could make this a polished game, but it feels like they gave up just a little bit early..Version: 4.7.0

Disappointed in the qualityMy family likes to play games but we prefer to lounge on the couch instead of sitting at the table. So we all got the Catan app so we could play. We play other games like this all the time. However, this app is buggy. If I close the app and come back there is a great chance it will kick me out of the game. It takes forever to start a game even when all players keep clicking the green check mark. It also doesn’t seem to be consistent in swapping cards with other players. Sometimes it shows up even if I don’t have what the other player is asking for and it’s very confusing to the person requesting the swap if it was accepted or not. Really need to clean up the interface in some areas to make it easily understood. We got so frustrated today that we finally gave up playing. If it was a free app that would be less frustrating but we paid $15 for everyone to have it. Back to Ticket To Ride for now..Version: 4.6.5

Inconvenient to play with friendsMy friends and I downloaded this app because we love the board game and wanted to play even when we aren't together. Well apparently that's not what this is meant for. We thought this would be similar to other "with friends" games with the ability to play your turn on your convenience and then it would send a notification to the other person so that they can play their turn when they have a second. Well that doesn't work. If I leave the game it kicks me out. So we would have to be sitting around on our phone playing at the exact same time and not doing anything else until the game was over. That is just not convenient. Guess we won't be using this app after all..Version: 4.6.2

Fix your AIIt’s total garbage. And find a way to penalize players for quitting online games. I just had two players drop out because I had a one point lead and they’re bad sports, only to have the AI replacements LITERALLY play knight cards AND roll 7’s FOUR TURNS IN A ROW. and only rob me, of course. In a matter four or five turns an AI player managed to pick up Longest Road, Largest Army, AND two Victory Point cards for the win, while I was unable to build a single road or buy a single development card. This is total bollocks and extremely frustrating. I play this game a lot and that’s pretty much how every game goes. It’s no fun, even when it sometimes seems to be skewed in my favor. What’s the point of playing a game where there’s no challenge, just a question of “are the dice all gonna go my way this time or not?” This is the most expensive app I’ve ever purchased and definitely the one I hate the most. I love the board game and this has potential to be a decent substitute. What a lazy and sorry excuse for competition they’ve come up with though😕. Ridiculous. Fix it and it’ll be the best app ever..Version: 4.6.5

AI dice blatantly cheatsI’ve been playing this game for less than a week and I have had at least a dozen instances where the AI has been skewed to focus attacks only on the human player and not the other PC players. I’ve been a software engineer for 19 years and recognize the dice algorithms become weighted in certain situations and are not randomized. The AI purposefully continues to Knight against the human player - I just got out of a game where the PC players played Knight on me constantly 6 out of 8 instances and I was far behind them in victory points and resources. Improve the AI to use sound strategy rather than be lazy programmers and just de-randomize the dice algorithms...I’m not bothering to buy any expansion until I see an update.Version: 4.7.2

Good implementation, OK AIThis is a good implementation of the classic board game. So far I’ve only played on the included base levels and haven’t seen any annoying ads or upgrade offers that plague many games these days. Thinking about other people’s comments - the included AI players do tend to buy a lot of resource cards as opposed to many human’s road/settlement focused early games, and that can take some getting used to. Also, the “friendly robber mode” setting can make it feel like you’re getting hammered by the robber if you’re the first/only player over two points early on. I often purposely avoid getting any (non-victory card) points until several of the the AI players do, focusing on roads (4 or fewer on a row) and cards - then add settlements in later so the robber is spread more evenly. Anyway, this is a pretty good implementation of the classic and well worth the price..Version: 4.7.0

Great adaptationEasy interface, great system. My only problem has been that other players online may take way too much time on their turn and the option to boot them from the game only appears once, and will only succeed with a vote by the other players. The vote will almost always fail, so you'll consequently have to put up with that player taking 2-6 minutes for their turn for the rest of the game, which is frustrating. There should be an option to pressure the player into playing quicker, or for the vote to be called for again. Alternatively, there could be a 1-3 minute timer for all players to take their turn, and if someone exceeds this time limit 3x in a row, they are booted from the game and replaced with an AI. Still an awesome game though! I love that I can play offline and online..Version: 4.6.2

Bad AI, multiplayer glitchesThe game is good at it's core, but playing against the AI is mostly unusable if you are looking to improve at Catan. The game dice fixes to allow the AI to "catch up" when behind in points. This means skill has very little to do with whether you win or lose in single player. The AI should instead be worked on to better mimic a strong human player and the dice rolls should be COMPLETELY RANDOM. In multiplayer, there are numerous glitches as well. For example, when buying dev cards, if connection lag forces the game to take time to register this buy, and you click on buy dev card again while the first one is still in process, it will give you two cards even if you do not have enough resources for them! This is game breaking and gets abused quite often online. It even allows players to do this as long as the lag lasts, sometimes buying 5-6 dev cards in one turn with only enough resources for 1! Finally, there is the problem of players constantly leaving games online. For this issue, I suggest matching players based on how often they leave games, so that players who do not leave games often are matched with similar players, and not forced to play against the frustrating AI when others leave. For the price I paid for this game, I did not expect these many issues, and therefore I give the game 2 stars..Version: 4.6.2

Developers, come ON!Listen to the reviews, and fix the app, guys. EDIT: I had originally made this review two stars, but have dropped it to one because there are so many negative reviews to which the developers do not bother to respond, and because the flaws mentioned over and over again are so frustrating. 1. It’s so obvious that the rolls are not random. A) I’ve never seen so many 2’s and 12’s roll as when I have settlements on every number except 2 and 12. B) If the AI only rolls 7’s and numbers I’m not on, and I only roll the number they have my robber on, FOR 11 TURNS IN A ROW, the rolls are not reflective of realistic statistics. C) I took a screenshot of a game in which we were 33 rolls in, and the number 8 (8!) had not come up once yet... what a coincidence that I was on both 8’s and neither AI player was on an 8. 2. Let’s not pretend your AI characters have different play styles when the only thing they all do is buy up every development card so that they hit the human player with a knight card at least once per round. 3. In the board game, you can see what resources your opponents have. There’s no reason for that not to be the case here, as well. Catan is a fun game. This app is a poor imitation of it. You have the technology. Make it enjoyable..Version: 4.7.2

An infuriatingly bad “AI” makes solo games unplayable.First, let me say that this is a great rendering of Catan as an app. If you’re playing online against other humans it’s really quite good. However, if you are attempting to play as a human against the AI just understand that you’re in the Hunger Games and the game is being manipulated in ways that make it nearly impossible to win. The computer opponents do not have advanced strategy or cunning, they have luck that defies probability and are probably gifted with development cards that they did not earn through resources. Oh, and they roll an insane percentage of sevens. Game play is tolerable until you get more victory points than the computer opponents. At that point, many of the times you earn resources, you will be stripped of them by a series of knights and sevens before you can use them. Additionally, many times while in the leading position and close to victory, I have been defeated by the AI claiming to have 3 or even 4 victory point cards. While possible statistically the probability is very low compared to the number of times I’ve seen it. The poor intelligence and high cheat factor of the AI makes this game unplayable, or certainly unenjoyable for me. I’d avoid it..Version: 4.7.5

Why I Uninstalled This AppAfter countless rounds, I finally uninstalled this app for good. The AI is clearly rigged against you. As soon as you build one settlement, all 7’s start piling onto your spaces, even if the computer is ahead. All knight cards played will peg the robber onto you, on your best money-making spots. The only way to win is to box the computer in so they can’t expand, but it literally takes twice the amount of resources to win (or do anything, really), because half your resources get stolen and redistributed back at the computer. Year of plenty always is played so that it steals your resources the most. No point in buying knights, you won’t compete against the amount of knights and 7’s rolled by the computer. Even if you have the most cities and spaces, you’re playing poor the entire game. Getting the Longest Road is a MUST. There are so many things that make this game unwinnable that it’s absurdly frustrating, such that I want to throw my $900 iPhone 11 at the wall, every time. And that’s why I uninstalled this app, because I’d probably do it one day and be down $900 because of this stupid app..Version: 4.7.2

Not worth itI’m a huge fanatic of Settlers of Catan, the board game. Seeing the game available for my IPhone I was stoked! I would definitely be glad to fork over a couple of bucks to play this game against others in my free time. Unfortunately this game fell short of my expectations in many ways. First off, you have to pay so much extra just to play any of the expansions or anything other than the original map. I would be able to handle that if the game didn’t take 8 years to load. Not to mention it crashes every time someone leaves the match. Also if someone takes forever to make a play, your stuck there picking your boogers for about 10 minutes until they finish their turn. There should be some time constraint for each player, or at least don’t crash the game if they quit. Please don’t waste your money on this game. The quality isn’t even that good, and it’s a waste of your time..Version: 4.7.2

Potential, but needs serious improvementLike most people who downloaded this app, I am a huge fan of the board game. I prefer to play against the AI, as it provides quick and easy set up. However, I cannot stand the fact that dice rolls stop being randomized when you build up any kind of lead. They clearly start to favor the AI. The AI will also gang up on you and continue to do so even when I have dropped to 3rd or 4th place. I feel like this would be an easy fix. It causes the gameplay to become so irritating I couldn't recommend this app to other Catan fans. I also feel that there should be an option for C&K to not role the pirate die for the first two rounds, as this is an optional rule in the original game. If any of the developers are reading this, I think these would be much appreciated changes..Version: 4.6.9

Robber cannot be moved with out crashing the game!I am very disappointed! Call me a fool and a glutton for punishment! First I purchased Catan HD, thinking it was the newest and would be the best Catan game. Wrong, as the robber would freeze the game if I put it in the obvious advantageous place for me. Frustrated, I purchased Catan Classic, thinking it would be different. Wrong! It also crashes, where the selection to go ahead with the game disappears when you move the robber to the most advantageous place. You have to cancel out of the game completely, and restart, saying you want to continue... but the same thing will happen if you try to move the robber in the most advantages spot again. Yes, you may be able to move it to a location that doesn’t help you, and still continue the game, but if you are hoping to win, you are at a distinct disadvantage. Unless this flaw is repaired, I definitely do not recommend this game. Today is May 8, 2020. If there is an update after today, you may want to try it. Otherwise, choose another game to download..Version: 4.7.2

I want my money back!!!This is my second review by this app is so horrible. I just quit a game by it was skipping my turn and saying I do not have sufficient resources to buy a dev card or a settlement when I had the cards. So my only option is to pass the roll and then someone rolls a 7 and I lose half the cards it just said that I did not have! Then someone rolled wheat that I had a city on and it showed the two wheat coming my way but they never registered as my wheat. It gave me two dev cards when I bought only one and then I was never able to play either of them! How can such a popular game be so poorly created online? Not user friendly and crashes often. Create a separate league for the common quitters who leave you with the AI to play. How do you get it to stop zooming in on every play! Such a frustrating game to play online. Also, lots of bugs. It would not let me build a settlement for no reason. I had the roads and the cards but it said I didn’t have the cards. Ugh. I had to wait until my next turn to play the same cards..Version: 4.7.2

Ok but very irritating (more so than a real life game of settlers)The AI loves to hammer you with the robber even if you don’t have the lead. I get in a game you can pick on someone who’s building towards what you want or just got the resource you need but a lot of the time it’s who has the lead. The AI doesn’t care even if you're down 3 points and on the other side of the map you’ll still get slammed with the robber 3/4 the time. Also there is only 2 monopoly cards in the deck and I’ve played standard games where they have been used 3 times. I get in the different scenarios that rules and limits vary (although none note more monopoly cards) so I won’t pick on how in those games, but I’ve seen as many as 4 used in a game. Overall this app allows me to play my favorite game whenever and wherever but it does need some tweaks. Originally gave it 3 stars but after playing the “scenarios” I had to drop it to 1. Literally every game if you get 2 or more points ahead it will constantly roll the 2 numbers you don’t have and you’ll get hit by the robber with every 7 rolled and knight played by the AI players. Even after you lose the lead and if you have one card when every one else has multiple you’ll get hit and the AI will steal your one card..Version: 4.6.8

Stupid AI and breaks Catan rules.There are several rules that this app breaks. Mostly concerning knights. There are random trades between the AIs that you can’t see. Many that no real player would do because it causes a win. They work together to make sure you don’t win. The numbers rolled cannot possibly be random. It will not roll what you need while over rolling their numbers. They put the robber on only you, never on each other. The barbarian is rolled WAY more than I’m real life. It’s crazy. I’ve lost cities in almost every game but not until the AI is covered and won’t lose theirs. Walls don’t save you like they’re supposed to. You lose them anyway. Another rule break. 7s are rarely rolled when they are holding too many cards but more than half the time when you are. That means you lose card constantly while waiting for your number to come up or while needing something they have a robber on. It’s as if the devs will not allow you to win. It’s complete crap. I love a challenge but you have made it almost impossible to beat and that’s not cool. You took every bit of fun out of an app that I paid for. Not ok..Version: 4.6.8

The AI Cheats; Still GreatThe AI absolutely cheats on the more difficult mode. I have no doubt of this. Yet, this game is still great. I never lose when I play in real life, because I’ve played against the cheating AI and learned how to win regardless. The only other quibble I might have is that the computer won’t ever trade multiple of the same resource. Ever, that I’ve seen. It will occasionally trade you, say, one wheat, one brick, and one stone, in exchange for one sheep, but it will never trade, for example, two or three wheat for one stone. Meanwhile, you can see if the computer will trade for something, then just keep adding the other resources from the AI. Usually, you can get extra resources that way, whereas in real life, it never works that way. People in real life are far more likely to walk away from trades in real life if you try to renegotiate. The computer will always just give you more, assuming it has more. That is sort of the opposite of cheating, and it’s way too easy and tempting to avoid. That could be randomized or fixed somehow, I’m sure, based on how people play in real life. Maybe make different characters play that differently. Again, there are annoying aspects of the AI, but it’s a great game, and I am shockingly good in real life now because of it..Version: 4.6.8

Great but...Have played hundreds of games, generally love this all. But has a weird glitch. I play online with friends, usually one friend and an AI. If we’re playing one of the maps with a gold hex, and the AI builds there, the game freezes when the dice roll the gold hex and the AI has to choose a resource. Not every time but about 1/2. It just ends the game, I can’t figure out how to force it to go forward. If one person leaves the game, it will replace that person with a second AI player and then unfreeze and you can finish with two AI. But if you’re in the middle of a game with a friend it’s super frustrating. This has happened to us at least 4 times just in the last 2 days..Version: 4.7.2

Definitely not as bad as people sayI’ve spent the past year playing this game. I’ve read more than a few reviews about how the game is unfair or it’s impossible to win, etc and that’s not true. Sometimes the game players do make weird decisions but they each have a specific way they’re programmed to play, and just like playing with real people, you can figure out their style and use it against them. When I first started playing the game I think it was about 20 games or more before I finally won. Now? I win a good 75% of the games. So the game isn’t impossible, it just requires critical thinking and strategy planning, learning your opponents weaknesses, etc. My only complaint is that the latest update made all of the lettering insanely small. Luckily I have an iphone 8 Plus or I’d never be able to see it. So here’s hoping that gets fixed asap. Other than that, I think this game is fantastic because easy games get boring quickly and I’ve played this game for hours on end for a year and still love it..Version: 4.6.9

It’s fine but....The absurdity of the bots is unveiled and unparalleled. Initially as I would expand more rapidly than the bots (who seem to focus on development cards), I thought their systematic targeting of me was nothing more than strategy. But then the more I played and even when intentionally not acquiring victory points I realized it’s not even remotely strategy that inspires their decisions. Even while in last place I realized the bots didn’t care who was winning. They will target you no matter what. Even if you’re down by 4 victory points and the front runner is on the verge of winning, they don’t care. They WILL target you regardless. It’s infuriating because it doesn’t actually allow you to play the game as it’s meant to be played. A good app but clearly designed to target you no matter the situation..Version: 4.7.2

Good game, frustrating AIAs other reviewers have said, the game is good...but the AI and scripting are frustrating to the point that it ruins the game play. I thought it was just me being a sore looser, but the post game stats show otherwise. Put your settlements on an 8 - watch as the 8 becomes one of the least rolled numbers. Get ahead by 5, watch as the others miraculously come from behind to win. Get one point from victory and watch as the other players store up 12+ cards for several turns without anyone rolling a 7 so they can catch up. The work around is that you have to match up your settlements with that of the computer players. Also, you have to hold off on getting points so you aren’t too far ahead (leave breaks in your longest road, hold knight cards, etc). I don’t know why developers think this makes it better. I would not recommend this game based on my experience..Version: 4.6.5

Great UI but too much bsI love how seamless this app is when transitioning from the board game to the app. It's so much easier than you think it would be and it is a really good use of spare time. Quite frankly, for the catan enthusiast, it's great, especially when you fork out the 12 bucks for the whole package. After playing countless games against the AI Bots in this game, my only beef is that the game clearly tries to equalize itself too much. I can't tell you how many times I've been ahead by 5 victory points only to have the game roll a ridiculous amount of 7s and other nonsensical numbers just to try to equalize things. Just got done playing a game where I was a staggering 6 victory points ahead with one to go for the win, only to have the app roll an ungodly amount of 7s, 3s, 11s, and 2s until the computer finally caught up to 'give me a run for my money'. It's honestly frustrating and blatantly obvious the game tries to equalize. Game should've been over in two turns, stretched the game out to 12 more turns.Version: 4.6.2

Could be better. Could be worse.A lover of catan and avid player of the iPhone game, I definitely enjoy the game. Though it’s not likely that the things that continuously occur from game to game are logical nor likely. Want to kill a number that is rolling heavy? Build on it. Be prepared to get ganged up on by the computers (which I understand if you’re winning; not if you’re in last. Albeit I can understand the idea of having a high probability of growth due to the spaces) as well as number droughts while they catch up. I’m not as frustrated as every other player as I see it as a challenge nor do I need to win to feel accomplished. It is irritating when it occurs but it is now expected. My preference would be to improve AI strategy and not their circumstance. I’ll continue to play and am not in a temperament to throw my phone. Just annoying..Version: 4.6.5

Don't download if you love your phoneBecause you will be tempted to beat your phone with a hammer if you play this version. Yes, I've played countless games of catan with real humans and understand the drama that is catan. However, you will find that your ai opponents have a nearly unlimited supply of knight and monopoly cards and that possessing ownership of as many as 10 of the 12 numbers available in the range of possibilities may result in the other two numbers being rolled so exclusively that you go 4 rounds without receiving a single resource. You think you know how frustrating the robber can be? Just wait. In short, the programmers must have been slighted by their wages or resented the project somehow. They are quietly chuckling everyday in the knowledge that they are torturing the minds of catan faithful worldwide. To be fair, it is a beautiful interface. Very user friendly and completely addictive. Nonetheless, I happily flushed the money I spent on this game down the toilet and deleted it from my phone. Life is good again..Version: 4.6.2

AI will make you want to screamOverall the interface is good, but I absolutely cannot stand the AI. The dice rolls are absurd - the AI players somehow manage to roll every seven and produce countless knights; I have literally gone rounds where I lost 5 or 6 cards in a row because every player just kept stealing from me. Ridiculous. My numbers are rarely rolled, regardless of how good the number is (say 6 or 8). The other players constantly gang up on me, even when I'm losing! They also refuse to trade with me when I'm winning, which would make sense, except for the fact that they trade with each other even if one of them is winning. In general they're not so great at trading, but that's more of a side note. Overall this app is great, as it allows me to indulge my Catan addiction, but sometimes it's so frustrating I have to exit and come back later. Developers, please fix the AI!.Version: 4.6.2

There are WAAAAAAAAY too many bugs!Here we go: 1. The online multiplayer service is broken and slow. 2. Sometimes the language switches to German. 3. The UI is broken and confusing. 4. Sometimes the AI’s freeze and that’s it. 5. Sometimes text boxes overlap and such with X’s and checks everywhere. 6. Sometimes when you place a road or house, it gets stuck and nothing fixes it. 7. Sometimes when you do stuff with the development cards it crashes or freezes. 8. The in-app purchases took a while to register to the app. 9. There are dozens of different unexpected exotic crashes and freezes that think of right now off the top of my head. 10. Sometimes if you have a pretty large amount of cards and you roll a 7, it crashes. 11. Most of the time when the AI has too many C&K cards and they have to give one up, it’s indecisive and it softlocks. 12. Sometimes reloading an old unfinished single-player game file crashes. 13. Sometimes the replacement AI’s when a player leaves don’t know what to do and either do nothing for the rest of the game or flat-out crash. 14. Sometimes certain C&K cards when played don’t do anything when they definitely should. 15. The Great Canal crashes all the time. It’s unplayable at this point. It’s hard to recommend friends this app to play with them when there are this many issues..Version: 4.6.5

Not terrible but not greatIf you’re looking to play Catan this is great for casual play. However, there are some qualms that could be smoothed over. When playing AI, be prepared to constantly be hammered by the robber. Also, there is a lot of predictability in the dice. As soon as you get over 7 resource cards, you’ll be sure to see a 7 rolled. Also, if you use a knight card to remove the robber from you, expect the very next player to roll a 7. Online play has some bugs that need worked out. There is the same issue with the dice predictability (mainly with 7’s being rolled) and if a robber is placed on one of your settlements, that number will be rolled at least 3 times in a row. Also needs a better system for hurrying idle players or removing them from the game..Version: 4.7.0

Computer cheats or game is buggyI left a one star review a month ago and it didn't get posted so consider this 2 one star reviews. This review is completely unrelated to my last review. This game is either cheap or buggy. I've had my resource cards disappear out of nowhere. Didn't trade them, didn't get robbed. They literally just leave my hand. The computer players work together against you. AI knows what cards you have. They only offer you resources you already have, never offer anything you need. AI almost never accepts offers for resources that you need in exchange for resources they have in abundance. AI almost exclusively puts the robber on your tiles. Every card they steal from you is a resource you need for your next turn. Any card you rob from them is a resource you either don't need or have a lot of already. Anytime they place the robber on your tile, that number becomes the "hot" number to roll. As soon as the robber is moved elsewhere, that number goes cold and doesn't get rolled. I paid $5 for the app and I'm deleting it for my own sanity. The $5 doesn't matter at this point. Even if you have the patience of a saint, this game will severely test your patience to the max. Good luck if you do decide to play it..Version: 4.6.8

Love itThis is a very faithful rendition of the board game, which I love. Excellent job. As for the dice, which many of the reviews talk about, they do not appear skewed. The game developers went so far as to allow you to see the roll history, which I have reviewed several times. They appear exactly as you would expect, but are not perfect matches because there are only so many rolls in a single game. The developers even allow you to skew the distribution if you like, making the middle numbers more likely. As for beating the AI, I am just slightly better than 25%, which is how I would like it given I want to get better. There are many times when the AIs all gang up on me, but that makes sense when I have 4 points in the first two rolls. Totally worth the price in my opinion..Version: 4.6.2

Needs Multiple EnhancementsI love Catan, the game...but this online version needs help. First and most importantly to me, there should be a category for those that want to play three players or four players. It’s pretty silly that you can’t enter into a game that has the number of platers as a preset. The user interface is pretty bad...sometimes the game itself is slow, but you can’t tell if it’s the game or just slow players. Also, sometimes the game will just shut off, and you’ll be kicked out of the app. You have to go back in and click back into the game. That’s fine every now and again, but it happens way too frequently. If someone is losing and somehow the game gets timed out, these sore losers will just mot reconnect and block you from winning. Too many loose ends, c’mon developers....Version: 4.7.2

Crashes after opening titleWhen I start the game, I see the intro “intrepid seafarers...” I click to skip, then main menu appears, then it crashes. Same if I try and skip the intro. iOS 14 on a +7 phone.Version: 4.7.2

Great, but...One of the bestest games ever! Only reason it doesn't get five stars is that it freezes / crashes on a semi regular basis... Please fix!.Version: 4.6.5

Was so excited but so disappointed!!!I was so excited to ply Catan again, as I haven’t played for a very long time, and so purchased the game (something I don’t do very often on my phone!). But imagine my annoyance that after paying for the app, I then have to buy something else to gain access to the campaign?! Not happy at all and I’d like a refund if this isn’t a glitch!.Version: 4.7.0

Great game but need serious updatesCatan is great game. However this app needs serious updates. It is a paid app but it’s UI and user experience is worse than the free app the Catan Universe. Most of all though, it needs serious updates on online game connection issues. The online match with other players is painful as it is too slow and often get bugs!.Version: 4.7.5

Robber bugAbout 95% the time when I get to move the robber both after a roll of 7 or knight card, the game freezes (offline play). And there was no way of getting out of the freeze but to start a new game. Very much inconvenient and making the game, well, pretty much unplayable. I do hope this bug gets fixed..Version: 4.7.0

Screen resizing issue on my XRIt’s a good game, but since loading it onto my new phone, it continually shrinks to a quarter of the screen size. Super frustrating. Hopefully you guys can fix this bug..Version: 4.6.9

Good single and multiplayer both.It is the gameplay as with the hugely successful game boards, but here you have access, on payment to a plethora of boards and playing styles via the sea expansion and the city's and Knights expansions. For people new to Catan the training is a must as the strategy needs it with the multiple rules in play. But once you learn, you are hooked. The single player gets compelling once you have all three. Enough to keep it competitive and engrossing. The multiplayer has enough of a community so you get a game at any time of the day within a minute to three up and away. The next update should have a few ux options when in this mode, but overall very well structured through out the multiplayer mode. The main thing with a game like this is a challenging atmosphere and no hiccups to interrupt the thinking and the fun. Catan delivers. 4.7/5 from me..Version: 4.6.2

Disappointing dice mechanicsSuch a wonderful game that is destroyed by constant weighting to rolling a robber or to opponents areas while being ahead in the game. Punishes skill for horsecrap catch up dice rules. Likelihood of rolling the amount of robbers in a row would be akin to winning powerball. I should do that instead..Version: 4.7.0

Can’t see edges of the screen on Iphone 12This app is not yet optimised for new iphones with edge-to-edg displays. Important buttons and information are now missing (covered by a speaker/front camera :( used to work fine in my old iphone..Version: 4.7.5

Love Catan!This app is great to satisfy you Catan cravings and waste time! Worth the price to unlock more scenarios and a good challenge to become 'Lord of Catan'! I personally would love more scenarios and expansions but it's a good challenge anyway. Another good thing would be able to live chat with online games to be able to gloat over a good move or express annoyance when you're outplayed!.Version: 4.6.2

Dont waste your moneyThe rules dont follow the traditional board game. It bugs out so you cant finish the game and nobody trades cards with eachother, makes the game very long and frustrating. Just play the free Catan universe instead..Version: 4.7.2

No campaign?Own this on iPad and have purchased all add ons. Not happy to have to pay for this version as well. Even more unhappy that the campaign mode is locked unless I make extra purchases. Surely the basic campaigns are free with the high purchase price?.Version: 4.7.0

Dice rolls are biasedChanging the difficulty against the AI doesn't seem to make the AI necessarily better, it just biases the roll of the dice to a ridiculous extent..Version: 4.6.2

JoLove it! Great fun just like the board game is and get the chance to try upgrades before buying the board game Would like there to be an even harder version for more challenges.Version: 4.6.5

Great, BUT.Loved the board game. Online is great fun, though when losing, people often quit game. Unplayable offline, AI cheats with rolls. I get it needs help against human players, but when the dice isn’t fair, it just becomes frustrating. Online worth it if you love catan..Version: 4.6.5

Password reset brokenThe password reset and subsequent emails send me in a loop and won’t accept the new password. It also randomly turns into German text between forgot password screens. Support won’t help fix it, very frustrating and not what you would expect from a good app developer and company. AVOID..Version: 4.6.8

Glitchy and RiggedCrashes often which to me should be instant refund until fixed. AI is a little controlling of circumstances but I guess it needs to in order to compete. Game play feels very formulated which is a shame. Everything else is great, could be a great product if crashes were fixed..Version: 4.7.0

Solid translation of the board gameGreat single and multiplayer version of Catan.Version: 4.7.0

Great challenge with funGood game, prefer the board game but this is a great portable way of playing. The app seems to be a little biased with its dice rolls favouring the computer opponents but that provides a challenge..Version: 4.6.2

Bugs!Play this game frequently online with family. The app has THE most frustrating bugs. The game itself is great and fun, but it makes it extremely hard to play when it’s constantly freezing, crashing, skipping people ect. It happens to all of us with different devices. Please sort it out!.Version: 4.7.2

Ok but missing the familyMechanics are great but doesn't beat the real thing playing with family.Version: 4.6.2

Great Game but buggyGreat game when it works, online is super slow and crashes frequently. Have been playing the board game for a long time and this is true to that. The AI is very biased and there are many technical hiccups. Overall not a bad buy if you like the board game..Version: 4.7.5

Good but too easyI play mainly a mix of seafarers and cities & knights and no matter which 3 AIs I pick I win 95% of the time Would love to have more of a challenge Also sad that I can’t play the other extensions that could be bought for the board game.Version: 4.7.2

Great game, app needs fixingGame is great but the current version crashes a lot on both iPhone and iPad. Gets frustrating when the app crashes most times it’s opened..Version: 4.7.2

Fun but frustratingIt’s a good game but hard to beat the AI due to roll of the dice always going in favour of the AI, robber comes in que always seem to steal your resources as soon as you go over 7 cards or about upgrade, robber wreaks the game,AI takes all the development cards and the dice never goes your way. Maybe a few faults here that need to be fixed including crashes, this game might fustrate some 2stars.Version: 4.6.8

Can’t move the robberEvery time I get a chance to move the robber, the option to continue disappears and I need to restart the app which then restarts my turn..Version: 4.6.5

AddictiveOne of the best board games out there.Version: 4.6.2

Great but could be improvedGreat and very fun to play. Could be improved by having the option of having playing 3 player games.Version: 4.6.2

Used to be greatWas an awesome game until the more recent update and now it often breaks your game midway, just doesn’t let you play or make any move as if it’s not your turn, but no CPU players do anything either. Restarting doesn’t fix it either..Version: 4.7.0

Well worth itMy favourite board game, well translated to app form. I'd love to see the seafarers/cities and knights rules applied to all scenarios (as an option) rather than only a handful. I agree that the AI seems a little lacking in strategy after a while, and unfortunately I've never gotten the online connection to work to play against real human brains instead!.Version: 4.6.2

Could be a 5 star ratingHave played this game for many years. Recently upgraded to a iPhone 11 pro and it’s difficult to see the entire screen when playing cities and knights. I have to keep flipping my phone the other way around to see all my opponents info. The game needs to be slightly narrower to enable the whole screen to be viewed. This was not a problem on my old iPhone. Perhaps this can be fixed?!.Version: 4.7.0

Would be goodAn app that allows you to play a great game when ever you want but you need to creat a log in using your email and are required to give email verification. This only works if the verification email comes through. Given you can only use your email once the app is near useless if the system fails to do that. Couldn't find any way to get a second email either, disappointed 👎.Version: 4.6.2

Doesn’t fit Iphone 11Fantastic game that I have been playing for years on my old iPhones but it’s unplayable on iPhone 11. Either the dice are cut off or the menu button..Version: 4.7.0

Great concept, terrible execution.Online multiple player very buggy and unable to complete trades correct, at many occasions states I have higher than actual resource counts. Do NOT buy, requesting a refund. Such a shame..Version: 4.7.0

Full of bugsFor a game that you have to pay for and then pay even more for expansions, there are a serious amount of flaws. There are so many bugs regarding dice, collection of resources and connectivity, it’s embarasing. Sort it out..Version: 4.7.2

Great when workingHave managed to play one online game so far, incredible when it worked and I really enjoyed the game and experience. Went to play my second game and I’ve had it disconnect on me and shut down the app repeatedly for the past hour now and I’ve lost patience with it. Please fix or I’ll be requesting a refund.Version: 4.7.5

Good butNeeds frequent updates!!!!! Too many crashes, players can deliberately manipulate game to their advantage by switching off their personal “wifi” it’s Annoying!!!! be better if you could choose "pace" as some puzzles require 'thinking time' & then all of a sudden game players can vote for you to be "kicked" from your game! Not impressive as this can happen even if you are winning!! Considering It's around $13 Aus then another $13 to unlock all other levels hopefully developer will look into this issue. Needs update for bugs! 21st October 2017! Update! Update!.Version: 4.6.2

Good digital version of classic.A good digital version of the classic board game. The various expansion packs allow further variations. This app is a great way for fans of Catan to pass some time..Version: 4.6.8

Expensive and Need moreI have loved catan forever and was so excited when I found this. Swallowed the price and was initially happy with it. I only play AI as I find people online take things WAY to serious and reck the fun. In saying that I finished all of seafarers in a matter of days. I need more boards!!! Cities and nights is taking slightly longer as apparently only aggressive AI players are chosen and they seem to get the best progress cards for doing nothing....Version: 4.6.2

AI bias but otherwise solidHave played the board game extensively over the years and thought what a great chance to be able to play whenever I want either against the AI or other players. Haven't tried the online as much as I get connectivity issues but the AI is a bit of fun. The only downside is that I have often found after getting to 9 victory points that the AI gang up, seem to roll their numbers and 7's more often (placing the robber on your main square) and 1 AI runs you down even from 6 points back in no time. I've got to the point where it's just a joke and you quit. The only time this doesn't happen is with the non aggressive AI. They are the opposite in that they just give the game away and you walk all over them. Still I enjoy the maps and the challenges and there is more than enough fun to fill some time.Version: 4.6.2

Robber algorithmPlaying against all AI opponents I note that the robber never gets put on any of my settlement hexes until I am leading the point score. This is a definite advantage to the human player and could be improved. Great game generally..Version: 4.7.5
