Catan FAQ:

Question: Why do I have to download additional files after purchasing?
Answer: The download from Google play includes the basic game data and a tool that will determine your device’s display resolution and then download the optimal graphics data for your device.

Question: Which Android security permissions does Catan need and why?
Answer: “Storage” to write data to the SD or move the game data, “Network communication” to download game data and access the In App Store and “system tools” to check if Catan is already running to resume a game.

Question: I bought one of the expansions but after an update, reinstallation of Catan or after restoring my phone the expansion seems gone?
Answer: Don’t worry; your initial purchase is already saved in your Google account. However for technical reasons you might have to select “Buy” again. Confirm and a message will tell you that you’ve already purchased it. You will NOT be billed twice!

Question: I lost my campaign progress after reinstalling, updating from or when restoring my phone. Is there any way to restore it?
Answer: Savegames from old versions can usually be restored automatically. For all other cases we’ve integrated a cheat code: Enter campaign mode and go to select player. Enter „CatanWarp*“ (* = 1–15, e.g "CatanWarp5") as your player name and confirm. Exit the game via the home button. Enter your phone’s settings menu. Select applications/manage applications/Catan/ and then “Force Stop”. Restart Catan. The campaign can now be continued from the specified level number by selecting “New scenario *”.

User reviews of Catan
I've not played the board game but as far as I can tell this is a very good conversion and the tutorial did a good job of teaching me the basics. The complaints over paying for the expansion seems OTT to me as you don't have to buy it and it's no different from the board game where you can also buy numerous optional expansions.

Love this game The interface can be slightly unintuitive, but that's not really surprising for a complex game like this. The online play is great for paying with friends far away.

Gmail works, but yahoo email goes in spam Confirming account trough a yahoo email goes into spam. Gmai is fine. Reseting password by going to browser is in german. I don't know german language. The buttons in game doesen't have description. You have to push to see. Can a push for a few seconds without releasing give a message description ? Something must be done about rage quit and "squill of death" it shows up after low on battery android sound.

Don't expect to enjoy this game. The app itself runs great, the interface is nice, but the Computer's mechanics are very clearly rigged. The dice aren't actually random, and neither are the cards. There's a 14% chance of drawing a monopoly card, but there were 3 drawn in the first half of the game. They also would roll a 7 any time I denied to trade with them for what cards they wanted so they could just send the robber to me and take whatever they needed. I must have seen all 3 players roll 7s in a row, clean me out, and then when it's my turn I have no more resources so I just have to roll again, like three times in one game. They also manage to build up multiple settlements and cities while still getting 1-2 dev cards on every round because the computer trades with itself (obviously it knows what all 3 hands contain), which means they have at least one victory card, and they always have at least one knight card on hand so that they can take your resources from you. So even if they don't roll a 7 they will use a knight to take what you denied them in trade. This is generally how these games go against the computer in this app.

Great game Have had game save issues before, but I just learned about the cheat. This makes up for the bug. Also, I'm sick of reading reviews that think the ai is too difficult. The ai plays logical without emotion. So when it sees you competing for resource or in the lead they fight against you. They fight amongst themself if you are losing. Also, if you are being targeted by the ai you must be winning... So they must not be too difficult if you happen to be winning. Great game... Probably my favorite android game.
