Event: Invite Your Friends to Friendship Expedition! (And get a free Robber Costume)
The time has come to expand your exploration party and who better to partner up with than your friends? Spread word during the Friendship Expedition event to earn or win new and exciting bounties.* It is easy to participate: Just invite a single friend to play with you and earn the new Robber Costume for free – and there are even more individual and Faction rewards to be earned if you are up for a competition.
The Friendship Expedition event will run from June 22nd (5pm UTC) to July 2nd (5pm UTC). Only friends invited during this time period will count for the rewards and prizes.
There are three ways to gain rewards during the Friendship Expedition event.
– (1) Invite a friend!–
All you have to do is invite a single person to play CATAN – World Explorers with you. They then have to add you as their first friend and reach level 5 before the event ends.
Reward: A full set of the Robber Costume items. This is the only way to earn the Robber Costume for now. (The Robber Costume will only be awarded at the end of the event, not upon completion of the invite steps. It will be added to the accounts of everyone who fulfils the criteria on or about July 4th.)
You and your friend have to complete the following steps so you get the reward:
- Invite your friend. Either via the Niantic Cross Game Social Invite button (accessible through the friends list), or by just asking them to download the game.
- Your friend has to install the game during the time window of the event.
- Your friend has to add you as their FIRST friend. (Only the first person they add as a friend will gain the reward. As this is the only way we can attribute who invited them to the game, make sure to be their first friend they add.) Read how to add a friend here.
- Your friend has to reach level 5 in CATAN – World Explorers within the time window of the event.
– (2) Invite the most friends! –
If you are among the top 3 people who invited the most friends (through the system outlined in 1), we will mail you a Niantic Shop swag pack with physical items.*
Rewards: The top 3 players with the most friends invited will each be sent the following items from the Niantic Shop:
- 1x Niantic Summer Shirt, size of your choice
- 1x Captain Doty Plush
- 1x Niantic Airship Lapel Pin
- 1x Niantic Popsocket
- 1x Niantic 5 Panel Jockey Cap
All the friends you invite have to complete the steps outlined in 1 during the event window to be counted for your score.

For the “Invite the Most Friends” portion of this promotion: (i) prizes can only be shipped o an address in: New Zealand, Australia, Denmark, Singapore, or Switzerland; (ii)Winners will be contacted through the email used when registering their account on or about July 4th; and (iii) Their player names will be announced as a follow-up post to this forum thread.
– (3) Boost your Faction! –
If your Faction invites the most people during this event, all players in your faction will receive an exclusive bonus quest that features exciting rewards.
Rewards: The bonus quest for the winning faction will award the following rewards:
- 1x Epic Minigame Pack
- 100x Totem Tokens
- And more
To keep things fair: The winner for the Faction competition will be determined by the AVERAGE number of invites per active player. So each faction (no matter the number of overall players) will have a shot to earn this quest. Every invite counts!
New Worlds, New Friendships
Helpful hint to get you started—Invite friends already enjoying other Niantic titles. And remember, to guarantee credit for your invite, tell your invitees to add you as their first friend. Also we want to remind you that certain profile information will be shared with others, if you add them as a friend, more about this can be found here.
A quick reminder: CATAN – World Explorers is only available in the following countries: New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Denmark & Switzerland, so you will only be able to invite friends from those countries.
We hope you enjoy Friendship Expedition!
