I have been sitting here reading the posts, feeling truly sad. I have reopened the playcatan client a few times, just in case they had a change of heart, but no dice (not even a barbarian).
So I was thinking about some alternatives, to get my catan fix:
- Play with friends on the real board.
- The iPhone version multiplayer online is not nearly as good as playcatan but about 100 times better than catanuniverse in the current state.
- Get a life and do something else, I am not even sure what other people do with free time, of which I get so little from my work and spending time with my friends and family, maybe check out a local community cooking class. I can see it now: "I will trade two eggs for one cheese", "I am going to rob you of your flour", "I brought my spy card, I TAKE what I want".
- We could petition to have a fan community hosting of playcatan with a limited time license. Maybe there are enough geeks around here to run it on an amazon server or something.
- Maybe find another online game community, I have tried so many German board games and like some well enough, BUT NOTHING COMPARES...
Okay what other ideas do people have?
Using the Apple Store one until a better one comes along. At least you can start and finish games on it.
