Dice bug or getting cheated by AI? Try the standard dice, stack and stack 5 and I don't think the dice rolling changed at all. At the end of the games, the dice rolling all follows the same distribution. Fix that godamnit. And I also agree with the other reviews, the AI dice rolling is so biased. So are their ridiculous chances of sweeping all victory points, or all knights for the same AI player. Have come across some AI players (normal difficulty) with 4 victory points or getting 6 knight cards. It's no better than casino cheating I say!
I like it a lot I agree with others (I played hundreds of times) that once you start winning the dice rolling changes against. The dice rolling should never be used as a difficulty option, there are other factors that can be used. The game used to consume a lot of memory and battery and heat up but it's fixed now.
I played all night. Fun game, great support! Really fun game and great way to learn the rules. Almost as fun as playing with friends in real life :) Edit 1 - Having issues connecting to online game play. I have not been able to register, add a password or receive an email for confirmation or password update. Frustrating, any ideas from Catan support? I'll be happy to return the review to 5 stars for some good customer support :) Edit 2 - customer support helped me out quickly. Everything is working fine.
Was 4 stars, then I downloaded the latest update. I used to play the online version on my PC, but they discontinued the product keys for that version for some reason. So, I waited for 2 years while they created this version. I downloaded it as soon as I discovered it was finished and have enjoyed many many hours of entertainment since. It does have a few glitches which is why I took off one star.
Game must be continually played. It will not send notifications The game doesn't send notifications for your turn. You cannot close the app or the game ends. Why in the world is this app designed this way? This requires all of my friends to be staring into their phones for hours at a time, which is not reasonable at all. Please add the functionality that will allow users to close the app and be alerted for their turn. That is a basic functionality of multi-player phone games.
Addicting - more campaign scenarios please! Love this game, works well on my samsung note 4. I'd like to see more campaign scenarios available please!! I'd also like to have the option for online play against buddies to be more turn based like "word with friends" where you can put it away mid game and it will just notify you when it's your turn again vs. kicking people off if they are inactive.
