Yes. However currently we limit the combinations of the expansions in quick play to avoid fragmentation of the player base and longer waiting times for games. We try to give three or four useful combinations for quick play.

Customer Reviews


Great adaption from the board game and really addictive. I haven't played online yet, just single player games, but it's a lot of fun and different computer players with different skills to play again (some are very hard though).

Hope they bring out all the expansions too! I used to play catan and dominion a lot, but now this is my most played game by far.

Excellent Game

I like this App and find the game addictive. The App works well and is easy to navigate around the setting.


This is an absolutely brilliant game and the app is fantastic 👍
