What's the fastest way to play Catan?

After login, you first see the layout of your hometown (see above). If you change the size of your web browser window, the layout will re-size automatically to fit best. By clicking on the x-buttons you can fade out the chat, avatar info and "My Lists" sections, to get more room for the main window. In addition by clicking on the small icon in the upper right corner you can activate full-screen mode (F).

  • To play Catan, please click on "Games" in the main navigation.

Now the Game Manager opens.

  • Look for an open game (light green bars) and click on it; then click on "Join." At the beginning, you should focus on light green bars labeled "Catan Base Game."
  • As an alternative, you can also open up a game yourself. Once a sufficient number of players have joined the game, click on "Start," and the game begins.

The operation of the Catan Base Game is explained here.

Detailed information about the games as well as further explanations about the program can be found in the Game Instructions.
