You need to create a new one for this app, even if it's exactly the same as the one you used in the other app(that's what I did). Then you put that new account info into the old app and it will update your universe account with previous purchases next time you fire up universe online.

Yeah that confused me too see above
I have found a lot about this app to be frustrating vs the old one but I guess I will get used to it 😬

I am getting confusion with all of the different releases of Catan.

Is this one restricted to only online play? Can it be played entirely offline without logging onto yet another account?
