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!

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

Not As Expected Everything about this app led me to believe it was about West Bank Israeli settlement. Was disappointed that it's about some board game. Board game? More like BORED game, right?

Useful but needs more If you play Catan then this is a very useful app for generating random and fair layouts, that said it only supports the standard and seafarers expansions - it could really do with more options for knights and cities or even mixed games.

Love this app! Keeps everyone from fighting about how the board is arranged.
