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 *”.

AI isn't very bright, so it's designed to cheat in single player mode when you get ahead. Not a huge deal, since the game is only really fun against other people. However, the online game mode stopped working recently with no explanation. Other issues: it waits a *long* time for a player to get kicked if they abandon the game. I've had players who were clearly losing abuse it by waiting it out for turn after turn trying to 'win' but getting everyone else to quit out of frustration.

Great game, a few glitches but mostly still playable. The one thing that needs to change is disqualifying players who constantly drop out when they're losing. I'm an average player and finish the game whether I'm winning or losing. Every second game I play, someone is cut off via roads etc.-so the losing player quits. It makes playing a full game almost impossible

Love the boardgame and the app is ok.....but the game isn't fair. The game has a built in difficulty curve. I you pull ahead because you of your solid infastructure, the game will start throwing 7's and then roll the space it just blocked or none of your spaces at all. This will continue till someone passes you. The game then becomes take the lead at the right time. Very frustrating.
