Better Settlers

Better Settlers


The Better Settlers Board Generator is for use with the offline board game Settlers of Catan. Not only does it allow for faster game setup, it generates a fair and engaging game.

We love playing Settlers. We've noticed that sometimes the game seems to be over in the first fifteen minutes--and no matter how fairly we try to distribute resources and probabilities during setup, natural bias creeps in. So we developed the Better Settlers Board Generator.

The algorithm for the generator is designed to create fair play. The result is more riveting and engaging play.

You'll have a better game of Settlers.

Please note:
- This is not a Settlers of Catan emulator, but is a companion tool intended to improve offline Settlers of Catan games.
- 6s & 8s are next to each other only if the 3rd tile is a 2 or a 12.
- For a board that follows the rules in the rulebook, please use 'Traditional' board layout.
- Network Access permission is used for Google Analytics, there are no ads or anything bad :)
- If you have feedback/problems, please email us and we'll do our best to help you. Stay tuned for future updates!

seems usefull.. help? im having trouble making sense of the layouts given.. everytime its refreshed the colors that certain numbers had are switched? i was assuming the colors meant what resource the hex was but after playing around with the app i do not understand the colors at all.. makes it difficult to recreate with the actual catan pieces.

Wish there was a color key I love the app, the only thing that would be nice would be if there was a key that showed which color is which resource.

Can't replicate a single setup! Gah - I must have the 4th edition. Please please please add an option for the static ports that come with the 4th edition of the board game out for 7 years now...

Nice little app Im always building boards when we play and getting the numbers 'fair' is always a problem. This little miracle helps immensely.
