Warning - Bonifide Catan Addict I own every version this game, including the packaged board games. I play online with my sons (28 & 30 years old). This new android app is my favorite version. And the developer's support team is responsive and comes up with solutions, not excuses. Great game, from an equally great company.
No settings bar Settings bar disappears on my nexus 7 2013. When you select an option it appears but your doing whatever you've selected so you still can't use it
No need for central heating Love the game however there are multiple issues. My phone, running Android 6.0 is using about 1% battery per minute and the phone gets almost too hot to hold. Also would be nice to be able to go to the game/settings menu when its not your turn. Especially online while waiting..
Terrible AI If you plan on playing against the computer, be prepared to be frustrated. They start every round trading resources with one another at 1 for 1 rates until they all have significant stacks of development cards, then they will alternate all the knights they receive between your various properties constantly and steal your resources. You can still win, but it isn't the least bit fun to play against.
Addictive. Huge fan of the board game. This is surprisingly addictive and plays well. However the dice is stacked no matter what the developer says. The proof. When the Robber lands on your tile that number will almost always role next which is impossible if the dice is random. The AI play as a team to make up for their ineptitude. A human would win every game if the playing field was level. Despite these faults the game has kept me hooked since its release.
Robber ai makes game unplayable After playing thus game for a week, I have decided to stop playing. The robber ai makes the game unplayable. You regularly get robbed 3 times a round making it extremely unlikely that you can do anything for several turns other than watch the computer play... The computer players seem to choose the human whether he is winning our not
