Thanks, good to know when some of these will be discounted. I'll have to pick up Catan HD on the 8th, online multiplayer is supposed to be coming for it.

It was $0.99 at the time of my posting. USM is in Germany, CET time zone (UTC + 1). I'm assuming the prices are changing according to their time zone?

I have it on my Galaxy Tab. It's a fun implementation. There is no online multiplayer and I don't recall if there is a pass and play mode. It's been a while since I played it. Though for 2.99 it is well worth it.

You can play hotseat. I'd be much more interested if there was online multiplayer, myself.

Re: USM Advent Calendar | 12/6 [Android] Catan $2.99 | 12/7 [iOS] Catan $?.??
They're doing beta testing for online muliplayer on the Android version right now. Supposedly it's open, you just have to request to join the Google+ community. I sent a request to join yesterday, but haven't heard back yet. Here's the link:

https://plus.google.com/communities/109997593658083650227

I think there's Pass & Play on both the Android and iOS versions.

I liked ingenious, but I didn't like how transparent the AI is.

Basically, seal it off from scoring on one color, and you win. It makes no attempts to stop you from sealing it off, nor doing anything more than incidentally restarting in that color if it should happen to connect to a color that earns major points.

It might be worth noting, this is the iPhone version. Catan HD is not on sale at the moment.

I've updated the OP to be more specific, thanks.
The Android Catan discount is at this point, of course, dead.

Re: USM Advent Calendar | 12/7 [iPhone] Catan $2.99 | 12/8 [iPad] Catan HD $?.??
Picked up Catan HD for $2.99, on sale now. Seafarers and Cities and Knights IAP's are $4.99 each, which unlock a campaign mode and additional maps. However, there are basic versions of each included for no charge. Has anyone purchased either of these, and are they worth it?

Look at the reviews carefully on the App Store. People have reported some of the expansions are buggy and the game developer seems to care less about fixing them (probably because they may have lost their ip license, as another version of catan coming out by another developer). Also, some people have had problems restoring their IAP after updates/restore.

I'm personally going to wait and see if the new app by the new dev is any better. I mean, an AI that continually beats you by cheating on the dice rolls? Ridiculous!

are you referring to the base game or expansions?

i was tempted to get it at 2.99, but for the $1 savings there is no rush to go out and buy an subpar version.

I don't have the app personally because of all the off-putting reviews. Just read them for yourself and decide.

Just curious, where did you hear that a new developer is working on a new version of the game?

I've played a few games on this version, and my only complaint so far is that the IAP's are as much as the normal price of the base game and they shove it in your face that you haven't bought them. With the $2 savings on the base game right now, I feel it's worth picking it up if you like Catan. The game plays well, graphics are great, the AI is challenging enough and it has pass & play. USM is currently testing multiplayer function to be added sometime next year as well.

I believe they are working on multiplayer for Catan right now. Going to test the android version first.
