I am new to the app - I played Catan offline many times - and I think I know the rules
I don't understand why I cannot build settlements past the initial two settlements on game start.
Can someone take a look at the screenshot and tell me is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong here? I have all the resources and I think the place is valid.
You cannot build on the intersection marked yellow - that's against the distance rule. You can check the board game rules here as well:
(see page 7 in the link for details on the distance rule)
Thank you very much.
I guess I was misinterpreting rules.
I thought that one can build settlements when they are adjacent to their own settlements. In this case that is the reason, my existing settlement is breaking the distance rule?
Exactly, this rule applies to all settlements/cities, not just those of your fellow players.
