Catan FAQ:

Question: Why do I have to download additional files after purchasing?
Answer: The download from Google play includes the basic game data and a tool that will determine your device’s display resolution and then download the optimal graphics data for your device.

Question: Which Android security permissions does Catan need and why?
Answer: “Storage” to write data to the SD or move the game data, “Network communication” to download game data and access the In App Store and “system tools” to check if Catan is already running to resume a game.

Question: I bought one of the expansions but after an update, reinstallation of Catan or after restoring my phone the expansion seems gone?
Answer: Don’t worry; your initial purchase is already saved in your Google account. However for technical reasons you might have to select “Buy” again. Confirm and a message will tell you that you’ve already purchased it. You will NOT be billed twice!

Question: I lost my campaign progress after reinstalling, updating from or when restoring my phone. Is there any way to restore it?
Answer: Savegames from old versions can usually be restored automatically. For all other cases we’ve integrated a cheat code: Enter campaign mode and go to select player. Enter „CatanWarp*“ (* = 1–15, e.g "CatanWarp5") as your player name and confirm. Exit the game via the home button. Enter your phone’s settings menu. Select applications/manage applications/Catan/ and then “Force Stop”. Restart Catan. The campaign can now be continued from the specified level number by selecting “New scenario *”.

Buggy, terrible AI. One of the better versions of Catan I have played, which doesn't say much. However, The Knights expansion is unplayable due to bugs. The AI is beyond frustrating. They only target whoever has the most VPs with the robber, so the player can go half the game without being able to do anything. Getting hit with the robber up to 7x in a turn is awful. The AI needs improvement. It shouldn't count cards or know what will get rolled next, yet somehow it always does. Don't bother.

Purchased this 2 years ago and have never been able to play it. Had some ossue with my old s7 where it woild crash constantly, but never cared too much. Now I have a new phone, and thought it could be handybfor an upcomming plane ride. Nope! I open the app and am greeted with "catan needs to download additional files," but cant see any buttons to approve the download, so im stuck on this one screen. Glitchy, easily the most dissapointing app I've ever paid for.

I've had this app for a couple years and play it frequently. I love that you can play offline (great for airplane mode) and there are enough free-bie boards to keep variety. In general play is faithful to board game. Computer AI is a little predictable, and I'm not really sure any bots are very different from one another. Ive had problems since April 2020 updates. Bugs crash the game when a gold mine space is rolled in game. I also am frustrated that random boards are not really.
