I only played part of the Seafarers campaign. I would have liked to play more but the constant crashing and scripted dice rolls ruin the game. The rolls seem to depend on the difficulty selected and how well the player is doing compared to the AI. It is almost comical how 7's are rolled almost immediately after the player gathers 8, 9, or 10 resources. That wouldn't be such a big issue if the AI traded competently, but they most certainly do not.

Rather than spending money on this electronic version I recommend you buy the traditional board game version. Grab some friends and beverages of choice and enjoy what is truly an excellent game and forget about this poorly executed option.

This is a fun board game because it is fun to play with others. The Steam version has no multiplayer though, which is not as fun. It does what it is supposed to and may be good for learning the game, but just pay the extra 15 dollars and get the board game.

As a huge fan of the board game, I have to say that this digital rendition is a complete letdown. The game itself remains faithful, and uses both Seafarers and Cities & Knights expansions, though it does lack the ability to play Classic Catan. The AI, while using the guise of charming patricians and such, are rutheless and sharp - During initial placement, they have pinpoint precision with city placement, often leading to scenarios that leave you on the bottom of the totem pole, even on Easy mode.

Now, while this would be tolerable to a seasoned Catan veteran, the game is plagued with bugs that force the game to crash to desktop, and as the game lacks an autosave feature, you end up wasting your time, even if you're having a very good run. And it does it for seemingly inoccuous tasks, such as placing the robbber/pirate.

If the game didn't have such glaring code flaws, then the I could recommend the game. However, between the steep difficulty even for new players and the poor coding and numerous crashes, you're better off spending your money on a physical copy of the game.
