About the game

As in the original game, up to four players can vie for the most settlements, the Longest Road, and the Largest Army. You can trade with your opponents and take possession of the precious land and its resources.

If there are no other players available, various Catanians, each with their own individual characteristics, will prove themselves worthy competitors: Jean the pirate, who knows no compromise, Vincent the merchant, who never allows himself to be cheated, Siegfried the knight, who takes what is rightfully his ...

The Catan expansion “Seafarers” is available as in-app purchase. It includes more than 10 new scenarios and an extensive campaign. Build harbors, discover new islands, cross deserts and sail through dense fog on the high seas. Become the ruler of “Greater Catan,” journey through “Oceania” or discover the mysterious “Treasure Islands.” Ahoy!

Find out if you got what it takes to be a settler, confront your opponents and become Lord of Catan!

Please note: The classic apps are no longer being developed. A technically updated version of Catan with original rules and many expansions has been released under the name Catan Universe and is constantly being expanded. How to switch from the Classic app to Catan Universe is described here.

Changeover from Catan Classic to Catan Universe

The existing Catan apps (Catan and Catan HD) for iOS and Android were renamed Catan Classic, to clearly distinguish them from the new Catan Universe.
For the time being, support for the classic apps will continue after the launch of Catan Universe. However, there will be no more content updates.

In the new Catan Universe, buyers of the Catan Classic apps for Android and iOS will have an easy start with no additional costs, because there they can unlock, for free, the “Basic game,” “Seafarers,” and “Cities and Knights” content they already purchased as part of Catan Classic.

How the changeover will work:

  1. Download Catan Universe from the App Store or Google Play or Ama-
    zon (free)
  2. Create a Catan Universe account (you only need to enter an e-mail ad-
    dress for verification)
  3. Enter data from the Catan Universe account into the new transfer menu
    of the Catan Classic app
  4. The previously purchased content will automatically be unlocked in the
    Catan Universe account. Activation will be confirmed via notification in Catan Classic.
