"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.

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!

Ratings and Reviews
Great UI, Hilariously Flawed AI
I have had this App for years. And have played a lot. I love Catan and the app is pretty good, but as seen in other reviews there is both silly and frustrating AI behavior. They definitely team up on you when you’re about to win, but not each other. The probability of 7’s being rolled when you’re about to win is comically probable. The AI definitely play knight cards when they don’t even have development cards. The trading with AI is tilted toward the human player—basically because you can always keep asking them over and over what they would give to maximize your gain, which no human would put up with. The AI will sometimes build roads in directions that have no value whatsoever. And while I believe that the dice roll may match the bell curve, there is definitely a high probability of your numbers being rolled while it’s blocked by the robber. And also a higher likelihood than normal that all your numbers will get rolled in sequence followed by a seven. I think the AI’s weren’t smart enough initially to challenge human players, so they added all of these strange handicaps.
Terrible design and layout. DO NOT PAY FOR THIS GAME
Game is not worth $5 by any stretch of anyones imagination. Terrible layout. 40% of the game screen is water/unused surface, but for some reason they lay the ridiculous emojis over ur opponents running score. The game selection menu is junk. Worse than junk. Hot, sweaty, junky junk. If someone does not accept to join game, all players are reshuffled per each not acceptance and have to accept each time a new player even enters the screen. Makes no sense. Worst part is people not playing. There is apparently no time limit on turns, which is obnoxious, and when someone quits mid game, instead of just switching over to AI player seamlessly, all players are logged out to menu screen and have to re-accept playing a game that they are already playing. The game freezes constantly. Like 60% of the time. It’s like the have one server. You are likely to complete about 20% of games started because either the game freezes, someone else quits mid game and it just idles endlessly, or you quit yourself out of frustration. Whoever designed this game should have an immediate reduction in pay, or at minimum should have to spend the months of June-August scrubbing the Oakland Coliseum mens room latrines….. if u have never been there, it is a community urinal…… sooooo….. u know…… gross…… just like this game layout and functions. Yuck. THIS GAME IS FRIGGIN GARBAGE!!! I want my money back.
Fun Game, Unfair A.I.
Great base game, but the programmers have not taken the time to implement proper A.I. Instead of the computer using strategy and cunning, it will manipulate the outcome so the robber is constantly thrown against you, rolls on your settlements are then thrown while robber occupied. As well, even when using the Stack dice roll option, if the computer can’t outthink you, it will devolve into ignoring the Stack rule and give your numbers less roll chance (I have screenshots proving this). Lastly, and the most obvious and annoying cheap tactic is that when playing against three A.I. opponents, one of them always seems to relegated itself as the sacrificial lamb in order to trade whatever the other two A.I. players need at any given time. Again, the base game is great, the different modes are super fun, but the unfair A.I. curbs the excitement. An important note- I’m not saying this out of frustration because I’m losing, I probably win 65%+ of the time, but I want to win against an A.I. with more fine-tuned programming. Lastly, I hope the devs aren’t saving all their programming efforts for the always online, less awesome version of Catan. PLEASE just perfect this one! Thank you!!
