    Catan Setup's review

    Catan Setup helps Catan players to save some time by generating random board

    • Generate random board
    • Renumber, mix, change ports position
    • Just board setting for Catan basic (no expansion)

    "Catan board set in seconds"

    If you've ever played Catan you should know that one of the most annoying and boring things is setting the board. This apps wants to solve this issue by automatically create random boards, with tiles, ports and numbers distribution following Catan board setting rules.

    You can make a full "mix", just "shift" it without changing it all, "renumber" without moving tiles or just change ports position. You can zoom to view final distribution closer. Yes, that easy.

    Graphics aren't important, the tool is good by itself. What we're missing is boarding setting for Catan expansions like 5-6 players expansion, Seafarers, Cities and Knights, etc. This would make this tool way more useful.

    Catan Setup generates random fair Settlers of Catan map layouts to assist in playing the board game. (Does not implement the game itself).

    - enforce 6/8 rule
    - added ports
    - added Pan/Zoom
    - "Shift" improved
    - added
    "Mix" shuffle count adjustable
    "Smart Renumber"

    Nothing fancy and took me a couple minutes to figure out the color coding was the setup, but it works fine and fast to vary the game.

    Does what it says. App permissions could be reduced. Options for extensions/expansions are required.

    I suppose if you only play 3-4 player Settlers or C&K, it's OK, but if you want to play Seafarers or with 5-6 players, Better Settlers is better.
