I have played a lot of Catan on the original board game but there is Catan Classic or Catan Universe in the App Store.

Can I play Catan online with a friend but also against the computer so we have minimum 3 player which makes it more challenging than a 2 player version?

    I’m voting to close this question because we can't provide you with assistance on how to play a game on an online site and what that site will allow you to play with for computer and human opponents. You will need to visit the site in question itself to find that answer. – Joe W Apr 22 '20 at 1:37
  • Instead of closing the question, why not to wait for someone that played at that site? should be an easy question. – Cohensius Apr 22 '20 at 16:11

    Please reopen. Closing this because it require knowledge of the site is like closing a question because it requires knowledge of the rules. Questions about the electronic versions of board games are on topic. – ikegami Apr 24 '20 at 12:55

    @ikegami Are we expected to be able to provide support for every gaming site and game that is based on a board game? – Joe W Apr 25 '20 at 15:22
  • @ikegami This is looking for not only a recommendation but a recommendation for a computer version of a game, which takes this FAR out of scope for BGSE. They are looking for a platform that allows both human and computer players - this is not our scope. – Andrew Apr 25 '20 at 21:13

Yes, you can play with both players and AIs in Catan Universe, at least on the PC version.

  1. Choose the game to play (The Game, Seafarers, Cities & Knights, etc) by click the appropriate button at the bottom of the screen.
  2. Choose "Custom Game"
  3. To add a player,
    1. Click "+" next to "Add player".
    2. Choose "Friendlist".
    3. Enter the name of a friend.
  4. To add an AI,
    1. Click "+" next to "Add player".
    2. Choose "Computer (AI)".
    3. Select an AI name.
  5. Repeat the last two steps as desired.

I can't answer for Catan Classic.
