    Just wondering if anyone had heard anything about the iDevice version of Settlers that's been announced. My guess is no, but I figured I'd start a thread for when the day comes that we've got more info.

    (And yes, I have kolonists. It's good, but it's not the same - I have a few issues with it.)

    I haven't heard anything besides the announcement but i agree with you on Kolonists, it's not match against a faithfull settlers clone even though it's still decent

    Summer's not over yet, just give it a little time. It's been like less than a month since the front page post; you need to learn to be patient.

    I'm not asking for it to be out NOW, I was just curious if there had been any update on the status or more details released. Patience comes in many flavors. ;)

    I wonder when summer ends for Exozet :) I am dying for this game. Anyone heard anything?

    I love Kolonists, but I just can't get past their mechanic for resources. I just like the dice thing better :)

    Yeah, I've been playing a LOT of kolonists lately, although now that Civ Revolution is out, I might give it a shot (I've never played much of the Civ games, but I suspect I'd enjoy them.) But yeah, Kolonists just doesn't cut it - the fact that you can't trade, and the way resources are handled just... leads to too many problems. Your starting position becomes REALLY important, and the island is just too small for 4 tribes. But I've definitely gotten $2 worth of enjoyment out of the game, and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a settlers knock off while we wait for the real thing.

    So, now that summer is nearly over, anyone heard anything more about the official release of Settlers?

    I was going to ask the same thing, but I guess if someone really had new info, it would be posted here. I love this site anyway, as it's led me to some cool new games, but the real reason I check it every day is to see if Settlers has been released yet!

    Sure hope it has online multiplayer support though.

    They sent out their monthly news letter last week to people subscribe on the catan.com mailing list. They were actually asking for beta testers for the iphone version. I applied but haven't heard anything from them yet.

    Here's a couple of screen shots they posted in the mailer.

    Wow, looks good. Wish I was a subscriber to the list, I'd definitely apply to beta test!

    I just told them how much I enjoyed Settlers and how I've been playing for about 5 years now. And that I have also beta'd for several other applications and platforms.

    Well I have never played catan and I gave them a quite a few reasons why I should beta test to support it (like 5 sentences)...hmm I guess they had too many that played it and wanted some newcomers maybe....

    You also should have put more than your a fan and that you enjoy it as many probably already said that and it prob didn't stand out or maybe they are just late with your invite.

    Also I told them i give great feedback if that helped at all

    Well what i put on here was not verbatim what I put in my message to them. I was just shortening it for boredom purposes. I went in depth with different games I had helped out on and things I had caught, etc. Also that since I have been playing the game for a while, the board, online, and xbox, so I would know what to expect. I'm sure there are a lot of people requesting to beta. I'm sure it goes by what you have to say as well as "drawing names from a hat".
