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!

No 3 player seafarers? This app is great except for the fact that seafarers can only be randomized with 4 players and up. I payed to unlock every scenerio and when I click on one it says "3-4 players" and "5-6 players". How is this acceptable? A 3 player game setup is much different than 4 player and the balance of the game is completely changed if you try to play 3 players on a 4 player board. The official rules come with a 3 and 4 person setup for each scenerio, so why wouldn't this app? Especially after having to pay to unlock

Makes setting up easy The algorithm is perfect for a balanced board and I don't have to figure out what tiles and numbers I need when setting up a non-standard board.

Solid and simple This app is NOT an electronic version of the game. It is a supplement to help design fair layouts for the physical board game. The simple interface makes it clear and easy to understand. Layouts for the base game (3-6 players) are free. Basic seafarers is free, but extra scenarios are .99 each or 2.99 for them all. Other expansions are not yet supported. Minor additional features are nice: different selection algorithms, reshuffle numbers, reshuffle harbors, a roll stats tracker and a placement selector.
