Catan Game Assistant

Catan Game Assistant is a mobile app that teaches new players the rules of Catan. It does not synchronize with the current game state nor help players track resources, whereas our Catan-omous Dealer will do both.


Automated Card Dealers

There exist several commerical solutions for automated card dealing that will deal cards from a standard 54 card deck. These dealers are not aware of Settlers of Catan game rules and only work for standard sized cards.


Online Catan Variants

Plenty of online versions of Catan exist that will track resources and automate gameplay. However, online Catan removes the face-to-face personal aspect of playing the game, which we hope to preserve with Catan-omous Dealer.
