  • Summary: There is hardly a board game award that the "Settlers of Catan" game, created by Klaus Teuber, has not won. This classic has a global fan community and has been translated into 30 languages over its last 14 successful years. ******** Reviews and awards: Airgamer Award 92% “…The $4.99 iPhone edition is practically the bargain of the century." (CNET.com) "It’s engrossing, rich, and carefully tailored to the handheld touch-controlled platform." (TheAppleBlog.com) ******** "Catan - The First Island", the legendary strategy game, is now here on iPhone and iPod touch to provide gaming fun any time, anywhere. 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... Find out if you really are a secret colonialist, confront your rivals and become Lord of Catan!

    An accurate representation of the physical board game, Catan tasks the players with building settlements and collecting resources in a bid to expand their empires and collect victory points.

    I've been having a great time with Catan, although I was disappointed with the lack of anything other than hot seat multiplayer.

    A reasonably simple game with some hidden depth. If your current chess or RTS game is all played out, Catan should be next on your list.

    The great tutorial will get you into the general flow of the game, but it will not lead you all the way through the woods. That takes actual playing, which is fun.

    You might enjoy this version if you're already a fan of Settlers of Catan, but newbies should start with the board game.
