Catan HD


Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


"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.

Catan FAQ:

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!

Wish there was more.

I love playing Settlers. I wish you could play all the games with more than 4 people even if they're computer opponents. The only thing I don't like is the computer players cheat. When you're on a roll they seem to get all the numbers they need and your number never show up. They also sometimes make it too easy because all they do is buy development cards. I don't think there's been a game I've played where the computer hasn't bought out all the development cards. It would also be nice to incorporate more than one set of rules or expansions to the game, like adding knights & barbarians to the islands of catan set.


This is a wonderful strategy game. I bought the full version and play it a lot. It does have a lot of glitches though. The build screen will disappear at times and the only way to get it back is to close the app completely and go back in. Fortunately your progress gets saved and you can pick up from where you left off. I really hope they fix the glitches as this is a great game.

Update: I have started playing online and the game frequently crashes. For the price I paid I expect to not have my game vanish so frequently. A 17 point game can sometimes take close to an hour, and I have had one disappear from me over half way through. Not acceptable.

I've changed my rating to one star but I will change it back to a higher rating if it gets an update to make it stop crashing.

Update: still no updates to try to fix the problems. It makes me angry that they charged a lot of $ for this app but offer zero support.

Great but glitchy

Great game, a bit glitchy though
