Play Settlers of Catan Online for Free

By September 22, 2008

Follow me on:


Updated 6/6/2010: Aso Brain is currently not accepting new registrations and many older accounts have been purged. It isn't clear when (or if) the ban on new registrations will be lifted.

Aso Brain Games has some very cool, family-friendly Java based games on their site. My favorite is a version of Settlers of Catan called Xplorers. If you haven't played, it's a card-based resource collecting, city building game. Players collect resource cards that they use to build roads, towns, and other infrastructure. If your family has more than one computer online, you can play against one another. You can also play against other online players or against the computer. Although the content is family-friendly, engaging in multi-player games online does open you up to possibly inappropriate comments. The game has the option for privacy, so no one can join or comment.

There are three other games on the site, including Match! which is like the card game Set.

This was a good link, the game allows you to play with others or bots so you can learn strategies.

I cannot get on either. Must be a server problem there.

Well, a small comfort to see that I am not the only one jonesing for an ASO fix. Their servers are definitely fragile so let us hope this is a temporary condition!

they had a bug and they say they will try to fix it in a few days…i really hope so cause we play every night…i’ve tried some other free websites but they don’t have cities and knights or boats which is a little boring!!! if you like the basic game you ca try Brettspielwelt but it’s quite hard to understand how to play or solito (canadian website) but there is only a few players on their site…good luck, and be patient!

Unfortunately the aso.brain site is currently not accepting any new members. In fact they’re getting rid of alot of older members whos profiles were inactive for 6 months. My older brother however does have an active account and did let me play for a few hours on it. I played the Settlers of Catan and loved it!

I cant wait for them to reopen registration so that I might be able to have a user name for myself.

If you still have an eactive account you can log on to aso brain games but they have for the past year or so put a registration stop on all new members tring to registered due to the number of complaints and bad behavior from players. Plus if you havent been logged on in over 6 months you are also SOL
