"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.
Challenge other Catan fans online via cross-platform multiplayer to prove your strategy skills or play against the AI:
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", "Cities and Knights" and two new special scenarios 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.
Exciting adventures await you in the two new scenarios "Enchanted Land" and "The Great Canal". Vanquish dragons and bag their treasures or build a canal to help barren grain fields bloom once more.

Question: An expansion seems gone after an update or reinstallation of Catan or after restoring the device?
Answer: Don’t worry, your initial purchase is already saved in your iTunes account. You can restore your InApp purchases by selecting the restore-option in the Catan IAP menu.
Question: I lost my campaign progress after reinstalling, updating or restoring my device. Is there any way to restore it?
Answer: When saved games can’t be automatically restored, we’ve integrated a cheat code: In the campaign mode go to select player and enter "CatanWarp*" (* = 1–15) as your player name and confirm. Exit the game via the home button and restart it. The campaign can now be continued from the specified level number (1–15). Levels up to the specified number will be unlocked in the custom game mode as well.
Question: Are dice rolls really random?
Answer: Of course! All dice rolls are 100% random and not modified in any way. We’re avid Catan players ourselves. We’ve played the iOS version hundreds of times while developing the program. There have been times when we won and lost a few games in a row because of the dice - just like when playing the board game!

Great potential but bad customer service and glitches
I used to love this game on my Ipad. I would play online or single player. The AI was well programmed and everything. Now... it has too many glitches making it almost unplayable. For example, I go to play my cards in the cities and knights expansion only to find I cannot see my cards... at all. If you have ever played cities and knights, you will know that this severily cripples your abilities. But what makes me give it such a low rating is the cost. If you want to play on your phone as well you will have to purchase EVERYTHING again. This is not a cheap app and their in-app purchases are also very expensive. Now, I do most of must stuff from my phone (thanks to a larger screen on iphone 6) and I don't feel like paying another $10 to get all the expansions again. I feel like I supported the developers to begin with and now they have squandered it by giving a glitchy app that doesn't work very well and they want more from me. Forget it.
Awesome game, app is ruining it for me
I love this game, and overall the app has been fun. However, some glitches have really started to ruin it for me. I can't use many of the progress cards in cities and knights; it won't let me confirm the number switch on the inventor card, so I have to restart the app and it will do the same thing if I try to play the inventor card later.
Also, similar glitch with road building. Sometimes it will not allow you to confirm the placement of a road you've built, again, freezing your gameplay.
Like I said, a great game, but they need to fix these glitches. I've been trying to play multiplayer with my buddies and they won't play with me anymore because the first time I try to play a progress card or build a road or something it freezes the game up for everyone.
Updated and still buggy
I just updated the app and I still have no sound. Additionally, a computer player (Candamir) froze during an online game. This game has so much potential and it's a shame Catan HD isn't what it could be. This app would be perfect with improved graphics like catananytime by Microsoft. If the aforementioned website ever enables random game play online I would leave this buggy app once and for all. A feature that enables players to "nudge" other players to approve game participation would also really help. Hope you all fix your issues soon before poor ratings knock you off the charts...
