"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.

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!

A great buy for Catan addicts!

Overall a great purchase, although an undeniable rip off that you have to pay separately for the iPad and iPhone versions!
Gameplay is good and the settings allow you to make adjustments in game speed and difficulty. The major issue on the iPhone version is that when you receive a trade offer, a trading board pops up and you can’t see the map view, meaning you can’t identify how many resources, cards and points the opponent has. If you love the board game I’m pretty certain you’ll love these versions of Catan.

Catan on iPhone Se

Enjoy playing it but screen a bit small to see what other players have. I think having paid for it that you should get more than the basic island. I also think having not been able to trade or use cards and finally having enough a seven gets thrown and they are then lost. Or that your number is thrown only when the robber is on your hexagon. Might be random but me thinks not! I still would buy again

Could be so much better

The real problem with this app is that the game screws you if you’re doing well. It’s not that the other AI players gang up on you - that’s normal. The problem is that the dice will suddenly not roll your numbers, or other players will roll a 7, then another 7, and another 7, until you have no cards left.

I also have yet to see an opponent use a monopoly card on a resource that I’m not holding 3 or more of, and the trading behaviour of the AI opponents shows that they obviously know what you have in your hand.

If they kept the dice roll as strictly RNG it would be so much better, but currently most games feel like they’re rigged.
