A Step-by-Step Guide

What Is Colonist?

Colonist is the most popular online alternative to Settlers of Catan, one of the most successful board games ever created. In Colonist, players trade, steal, settle, and play powerful development cards to take over the island!

Your goal is to be the first player to reach 10 Victory Points, by claiming settlements, building cities, and competing for other win conditions, such as the Longest Road and Largest Army!

Colonist has two game modes: Single Player and Multiplayer. In Single Player, you train and battle against powerful AI adversaries. Colonist's flagship Multiplayer mode allows 2-8 players to compete against one another in pursuit of victory (and bragging rights!). The layer of social interaction in Multiplayer adds strategic complexity to the game, providing opportunities for unpredictable, often hilarious, gameplay. You never know which friendships may be formed - or broken!
