Catan Assist is a board generator and dice simulator for the board game Settlers of Catan, Seafarers, Traders & Barbarians, and Cities & Knights.
The board generator is designed to create a fair and engaging game of Catan. Play on the original board or select one of the 30 Seafarers scenarios for either 3-4 players or 5-6 players or one of the 6 scenarios for the Traders & Barbarians expansion. All scenarios are available in the free version.
The board generator contains multiple algorithms that you can use to create a game the suits your needs:
• Place resources non-adjacent to the same type or place them randomly,
• Distribute the numbers fairly over the board or place them randomly,
• Place the ports close to, or far from their resource or place them randomly.
The dice simulator can be used to reduce the luck factor during the game. By reducing the probability for numbers that have occurred more frequently than expected, the game will contain less luck and become more strategic. Of course, the amount by which the "luck is filtered" can be adjusted and by setting it to zero is becomes a completely normal game again.
Please note: This is not the Settlers of Catan game, it is a tool to improve the gameplay of the board game Settlers of Catan, Seafarers, Traders & Barbarians, and Cities & Knights.
