    Do not buy!! Game AI never trades with u, numbers on dice u need never comes up. AI just gets “luckier” with more difficulty, good to play with friends

    Not going to play a game from a SJW company. Changing the name of the game because some people could feel offended.

    Have wood for sheep, wherever you go!
    But seriously, selling Cities & Knights as a DLC? Is there a reason not to include them in the basic game, besides greed?

    I would love this if it actually had local multiplayer... It doesn't, so I'm gonna have to pass :(

    Will this give me the option to play 5 knights in a row, watching the joy and life fade from my opponents eyes as I take everything they work so hard for then declare myself the winner.
    Cause I feel like that's the true Catan experience.

  • igiuLoiraM

    Can someone please tell me if you can play against the computer in this game? And if there is several difficulties to choose from?

    • igiuLoiraM
      igiuLoiraM 3 months ago +1

      @Brock Clayton Ommen Again, thank you so much. :) You have been very helpful. I've decided that I might buy it if goes on sale, but I think I'm going to prioritize to use my save money on Mario Maker 2 first. Have a nice day. :)

    • Brock Clayton Ommen
      Brock Clayton Ommen 3 months ago

      @igiuLoiraM There are only preset maps (with optional shuffled tile/number tokens). 3 with the basegame rules, 12 with the seafarer rules and 10 with the cities and knights rules (which are basically seafarer maps with expanded ruleset and additional figures) if I remember correctly. Some of the maps include additional rulesets like Harbormaster (additional points for having the most harbor points) or Greater Catan (number tokens get moved to surrounding islands to dry out the main island).

    • igiuLoiraM
      igiuLoiraM 3 months ago

      @Brock Clayton Ommen Thank you so much for taking your time to answer me. I really appriciate it. :)
      I usually prefer to play against the AI in games instead of online against real people, so that is why I'm asking. I'm sorry that I bother you with another question since you have been so nice already, but is there a level editor in the game of some sort too? I mean where you can manually place the hexagons. Or is it
      only preset boards and/or random boards to choose from? I have a PC
      version of Catan, and that version do have it, so it would be nice for
      the Switch version to have it as well.

    • Brock Clayton Ommen
      Brock Clayton Ommen 3 months ago +1

      There's a singleplayer mode which allows you to play against AI opponents. Those got 3 different difficulties. :)

      Multiplayer just works online but you can match up against AI + friends from your Nintendo account's friendlist using the custom matches

    If this game can be on the Switch, then why not Hearthstone, Gwent, Magic Arena, Duel Links, and Pokemon TCG Online?

    Hoping this actually works online. Fear of getting disconnected in an hour long game never fun, however catan is incredibly fun when played to understanding

    How do you play local multiplayer on one Switch with this? If you can't, then what good is it? That'd be 80% of the fun missing from Catan.

    • Jimmy Hickey
      Jimmy Hickey 3 months ago

      @David Jacques you can only play multiplayer online with nintendo online subscription, but you can play friends on your nintendo friends list but they need a switch and a copy of the game. In hoping for local wireless multiplayer to be added in and update.

    • David Jacques
      David Jacques 3 months ago +1

      Yeah, at first I was excited that we'd have the chance to play against AI when we're only 2 people and also have the ability to play with all human players when we have guests, but looking at this trailer I wonder how it would work since you'd essentially play with open hands. Unless they do something like and allow people to connect using their smartphone or tablet to keep their hand secret.

    • Jimmy Hickey

      It's the best selling board game of all time, its probably your type.

  • V-Man 776
    V-Man 776 3 months ago +14

    Some information people should consider:
    - The game lacks local multiplayer, instead requiring the internet to play with others
    - There is a campaign mode with adjustable difficulty
    - There seems to be online multiplayer with randoms, complete with leaderboards
    - The base game (including Seafares) is $20, while Cities and Knights is another $6
    I was really hoping for local multiplayer (despite the obvious inability to hide the contents of your hand from others), but otherwise I'd say this may be worth getting, especially if multiple people you know may also get it.

    • Vvonter
      Vvonter 2 months ago

      I wonder if they could maybe it could work in portable mode, since from what I get it is turn base. So passing the system around, while no elegant might be the way to play locally on one system.

  • AlexRN

    I need to know if this game has local multiplayer (all on one console and/or one per console but with local play).

    • Lauren Yesner
      Lauren Yesner 3 months ago

      No unfortunately it does not have local multiplayer, only online multiplayer

    • Matt Slater
      Matt Slater 3 months ago

      I'd imagine not since I believe Catan requires you to have your own hand of cards which you keep to yourself. I see the same issue with Munchkin when it drops.
      Otherwise it looks quite nice.

  • Restricted Limitation
    Restricted Limitation 3 months ago

    Is there online matchmaking if we don't have friends, though?

    • Brock Clayton Ommen
      Brock Clayton Ommen 3 months ago +1

      There are two kinds of multiplayer matches: *Custom matches* which work with friends (+optional AI opponents) and *automatches* which let you face against random online players.

    • Cipher 8
      Cipher 8 3 months ago

      If there isn't, you can always find some groups on discord or other various forums to play with I'm sure there is matchmaking though.

  • Suiter
    Suiter 3 months ago +2

    What do games like this and Civ have against one system multiplayer?

    • Suiter
      Suiter 3 months ago

      Metabates The problem is that the people who play these types of games with me don’t play enough video games to get their own console, so it has to be one system. I wish it was at least an option.

    • Metabates
      Metabates 3 months ago

      Suiter Because people would be able to see what’s in your hand and there’s no real way they could regulate that. Catan could have taken the Clue approach and have phones be your hand as an option, but I don’t think that would work as well with Civ.

    • Sean-Luc Shanahan
      Sean-Luc Shanahan 3 months ago +1

      @Brock Clayton Ommen That's really unfortunate. I only thought it was worth picking up if it had local multiplayer (was hoping to play with family and friends etc.). The game could easily sync up with the Catan phone app allowing you to have a universal game board on the TV screen and your cards (hand) could be on everyone's individual phones. Too bad.

    • Brock Clayton Ommen
      Brock Clayton Ommen 3 months ago

      It doesn't. Multiplayer only works with multiple devices and therefore needs Nintendo Switch Online. (Hint: If you got amazon prime you could get the subscription for free for up to one year right now via Twitch :) )

      It's only up to 4 players max. Cities and Knights expansion is available as a DLC (up to 4 players as well).

      There has been a Monopoly release on every console, sometimes 2. Company's don't put money into things that don't sell.
