Catan

Catan


"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.

Update 4.0 of the game allows you to challenge other Catan fans cross-platform online via online multiplayer matches: users can play together and prove their strategy skills.
But also 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” and “Cities and Knights” 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.

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 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.

In-app purchases Beware that in-app purchases don't carry over to new devices - I really would rather buy the game and own it!

Great fun. This app is a no brain buy because I have spent the last 5 hours glued to the campaign mode in the expansion. I havn't tried the board game version but I will definitely buy the classic mode after trying out the app. One dilemma is that the ai gets progressively more difficult. Sometimes it seems like all the ai characters are ganging up on you, as they don't attack each other nearly as often. Otherwise, great fun.

Love this game! Die rolls not rigged This is a good, long form, challenging game. Lots of great strategy and paths to victory. I was irked that expansions cost extra but its $3 so I'm not gonna cry. Got the Cities and Knights expansion and was frustrated at first, but a couple games and reading parts of the rules more carefully & I love it. The people complaining about "cheating" dice rolls are probably the same who "can't believe!" my luck on the board game. Can't wait to dog my friends next board game
