"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.

The game allows you to 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!

Customer Reviews

Great potential, but bad glitches and support

I love this game but a few things have made it that I don't want to play it any more. 1 glitches. This app has so many glitches and is constantly having trouble loading cards. 2 the support people are very annoying and misleading. They don't read your email and tell you to check things out of order. One guy told me to make the in-app purchase and I won't be charged a second time. I did, and I was charged a second time. He then told me that they cannot help it if I consciously madethe purchase and I was going to have to go to iTunes and ask for a refund. 3 they have two separate apps, one for iPad and one for iPhone. This is not uncommon, but when you have such expensive in-app purchases, I believe you need to only need to purchase them once not twice.


It's really sad how a wonderful game can be spoiled! Please do yourself a favour and do not purchase this app. Instead save your money and buy the real game. I have tried over and over again to find fairness in this game, but to no avail. Basically, 1 an 12 games will you ever get a favourable dice roll. Even if you strategise to put your settlements on all the numbers, the dice will more often than not avoid your numbers. I recently played a game in which after I gained a card, the bot would roll a seven and steal my card. I went from winning the game by four points to losing! I seriously wish I could get my money back and give this app a solid "0".

Was great.

After the last update I noticed that my game was only generating two boards. At first I thought my phone was being weird so I tried to uninstall and reinstall. No joy there. The only thing that changes is the numbers on the tiles and even that isn't guaranteed. Basically it switches between two boards if you use variable. However since it's a 50/50 shot you can get stuck over and over. Winning that way isn't fun. So if that gets fixed it'd be great again. The new characters are interesting but if adding them breaks the game what is the point of the new AI anyway?
