The Better Settlers Board Generator is for use with the offline board game Settlers of Catan. Not only does it allow for faster game setup, it generates a fair and engaging game.We love playing Settlers. We've noticed that sometimes the game seems to be over in the first fifteen minutes--and no matter how fairly we try to distribute resources and probabilities during setup, natural bias creeps in. So we developed the Better Settlers Board Generator. The algorithm for the generator is designed to create fair play. The result is more riveting and engaging play.You'll have a better game of Settlers.Please note:- This is not a Settlers of Catan emulator, but is a companion tool intended to improve offline Settlers of Catan games.- 6s & 8s are next to each other only if the 3rd tile is a 2 or a 12.- For a board that follows the rules in the rulebook, please use 'Traditional' board layout.- Network Access permission is used for Google Analytics, there are no ads or anything bad :)- If you have feedback/problems, please email us and we'll do our best to help you. Stay tuned for future updates!
