About this game

So, you have a copy of the CATAN board game, and want to get playing right away. But, you have no time or desire to read rules–let alone explain them to your friends?

How about this:
Just get all the rules explained to with this app!
Gather your friends, unpack the game, and start playing without anyone reading the rules.

Available languages: English, Spanish, German, Polish, Portuguese, Catalan, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish

You want to learn how to play it but don’t have the time or desire to deal with reading through all the instructions?

Well, how about simply having all the rules explained to you via narrated animations? Learn how to set up the game and get started without reading the rules booklet. Learn other KOSMOS games without reading the manuals.

Note: This app offers additional features for the well-known games from KOSMOS.The app is usually not compatible with Chromebooks.

Features:

It's a bit slow and clanky, but makes getting started a breeze. We probably wouldn't play Catan if it wasn't for this app. We still occasionally go back to different sections to refresh ourselves on the rules. But here lies the problem: the specific sections aren't easy to find, so it takes some tedious exploration. Better controls on the playback and performance improvements would make this app a 5-star. The 4-star is for the usefulness of the app.

Useful way to learn how to set up Catan for game play. I like that both beginner setup (really helpful for first time play) and variable setup (useful for a more advanced setup after you get the hang of the game) are included. The instructions pause after each step to give the players time to complete the step before pressing next to continue.
