Pioneers is a GNOME computer implementation of the Settlers of
Catan board game. It can be played over the internet.
The game includes a server, a client, a computer player, an
editor and a meta-server (for locating running servers).
The GTK server has a user interface in which you can customise
the game parameters. Once you are happy with the game
parameters, press the Start Server button, and the server will start
listening for client connections.
When you start the client program, it displays a connect
dialog. You must define the hostname and port where the
server can be located. You can enter these manually, or press the Meta
Server button. The meta server maintains a list of all
registered Pioneers servers that are currently running a
game. This allows you to join a game anywhere on the Internet.
Pioneers is most fun with three or four players, but two
players is still ok, or you can add some computer players if you like.
Pioneers was formerly known as Gnocatan.
