"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.

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!

My favorite game but definitely flaws

This is by far my favorite game, but there is some major issues that I don’t know why haven’t been fixed. I’ve had the app for over 5 years now. I play against the computer most of the time, and you can expect your game to be interrupted halfway through with the commodity cards disappearing so you can’t see what you have. You can exit the game and reopen the app and continue where you left off, but still annoying, and it’s guaranteed to happen every game you play. They lose a star for that. Next issue as stated in previous comments is yes, if you happen to be ahead of the computer, it is by far in favor of the computer in so many ways including the dice rolls. They will hit the computer numbers and stay away from your number and it’s not even subtle. They lose another star for that. The other star lost for me is again, how long this app has been out and have never attempted to update it or fix the obvious issues is pretty poor in my opinion. I still love it though and have managed to work around the issues that look like they’re always going to be there! 2/5 stars from me

I have played about 12 games and have noticed a pattern. Once you appear to get ahead in points, then the dice throws are never in your favor. One or two games you can understand , but when the dice rolls a 4 and 11 for 9 throws and all the AI players get resources but you don’t, then you realize something is off. The robber appears much more in the game and you are robbed more often than anyone, even it if you have no cards to give. Then if you happen to have the chance to win, the board freezes up on me and there is nothing I can do but restart my device. This has happened in about 5 of the 12 games. In a face to face game you can hear what other players are looking for in resources and whether they get them or not, but in this game you do not get that knowledge. Also development cards are very few, not like in a real game. Even writing this review all nicknames I wrote were taken!! Examples: abc, xxxxx, frustrated, Nick, Gail, click here etc. It did not like two stars. I have increased it to 3 to see if I can post this review.

Addicted even with the glitches

Update: one day suddenly the app started crashing about a dozen times during each game. Even though you just reopen the app, “continue” the game and have to repeat the last move, it is hugely annoying. Wth?!


This review is about bot play on the basic game. I’m guessing from old reviews that the game has improved, but still many glitches. Usually can’t tell how many D cards are left, the number is almost completely covered. [TIP: Try buying one without the resources to do it. If there are none left, it will tell you there are no more to buy. If there are any left, it will say you don’t have sufficient resources.] And sometimes toward the end the Dcard page is almost completely gone. Sometime you cant even play one you had been saving! Also sometimes the stat page is cut off. There are also no stats as far as I can see how many times I’ve won. It should also tell you what numbers have been last rolled for monopoly strategy purposes. It goes too fast to see who got what, what the spent and what they bought. All that being said, my husband and I are still addicted. Plus unlike many other bot app games the bots are frustratingly challenging.
