App DescriptionCatan 3.0: â€śCities and Knightsâ€ť expansion (IAP) now available, retina graphics and numerous optimizations to base game!
Trade, build, rule: "Catan", the legendary strategy game for iPad! True to the original game, you can compete with up to four players for the most settlements, the longest roads and the largest army. You can trade with each other and claim the precious land with all its resources.
If there are no other players available, various Catanians, each with their own individual characteristics, will prove themselves worthy competitors: the pirate Jean, who knows no compromise, Vincent the merchant, who never allows himself to be cheated, Sean the knight, who takes what is rightfully his...
The popular Catan expansions â€śSeafarersâ€ť and â€śCities and Kightsâ€ť are available as In-App purchases.
The complete Seafarers expansion includes more than 10 additional scenarios with an extensive campaign. Become Harbormaster, discover new islands and extra game elements like ships, gold fields, treasures and pirates. Ahoy!
The Cities and Knights expansion introduces various new gameplay mechanics that add even more variety to Catan. Invest new trade goods in city improvements to build one of the three metropolises of Catan â€“ but beware of the barbarians attracted by Catanâ€™s new wealth! Youâ€™ll need your best knights to fend them off! C&K contains a short campaign and 7 challenging maps.
Find out if you really are a secret colonialist, confront your rivals and become Lord of Catan!

Question: An expansion seems gone after an update or reinstallation of Catan or after restoring my phone?
Answer: Donâ€™t worry, your initial purchase is already saved in your iTunes account. However for technical reasons you might have to select â€śBuyâ€ť again. Confirm and an iTunes message will tell you that youâ€™ve already purchased it and that you can re-download for free. You will NOT be billed twice!
Question: I lost my campaign progress after reinstalling, updating or restoring my phone. Is there any way to restore it?
Answer: When savegames canâ€™t be automatically restored, weâ€™ve integrated a cheat code: In the campaign mode go to select player and enter â€žCatanWarp*â€ś (* = 1â€“15) as your player name and confirm. Exit the game via the home button and restart it. The campaign can now be continued from the specified level number (1â€“15). Levels up to the specified number will be unlocked in the custom game mode as well.
Question: Are dice rolls really random?
Answer: Of course! All dice rolls are 100% random and not modified in any way. Weâ€™re avid Catan players ourselves. Weâ€™ve played the iOS version hundreds of times while developing the program. There have been times when we won and lost a few games in a row because of the dice - just like when playing the board game!
Question: What about online multiplayer and further expansions?
Answer: Further content for Catan is already in development. Check our Facebook/Twitter sites for updates and/or beta news.
