About this app

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.

Great App! This makes random setup so much quicker and easier. I really like some of the extra scenarios, especially for Seafarers. One bug we found today was in "Fog Island" 3-4 player scenario there was one too many sea hexes. I have tried most of the other board generators and this is by far the best. One thing that might be nice is to add a Cities and Knights switch to add a couple points to the scenario. 2021/01/01 - Still have not found a better app than this.

Hey this app is excellent! Thank you! Is there any chance of you adding an optional dice roll noise? Just to alert everyone that the button has been pressed. Also potentially a timer function to the dice roll screen? The app is fantastic and streamlined in its current state. Those are just some premium features I'd be happy to pay for. :)

Thanks for your positive review. I will release a new update within a few days and this will include sound for the dice rolls and a timer function. I hope you enjoy it.

Developers please comment, and consider improving the following issues soon for better rating: 1) add holding the "generate" button to lock it, because for mist and fog scenarios it is easy to accidentally regenerate the map; 2) match the coloring of the tiles with the paper prints; 3) add initial settlement placement suggestions; 4) add other Catan expansions. This is a good app, it let's you generate the map for different scenarios, and roll the dices, keeping the turn time.
