Answers to this question about tile layouts for Catan suggests Better Settlers. When I open Better Settlers, the page shows a board setup for Catan. What do the colors in the setup stand for?

My guess:

  • maroon/dark red: brick
  • dark green: wood
  • light green: wheat
  • yellow: sheep
  • grey: ore

Is that correct?


The colors surely match the colors of the resource cards and the actual hexes:

  • maroon - brick
  • dark green - wood
  • light green - sheep
  • yellow - wheat
  • gray - ore

And the blank orange hex would be the desert.

(clockwise from bottom left, that's sheep, wheat, ore, brick, and wood; the center is desert, and there's an extra wood cut off on the bottom)
