5.0 out of 5 stars We love this game, 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Catan Junior Board Game (Toy)
We were introduced to Catan via the youtube show called "Tabletop" with Wil Wheaton. We decided to get the junior version to play with our 4 year old son, he adores it! He definitely needs someone that knows all the rules to help him along, but he is perfectly capable of playing this and having lots of fun! He loves it so much that we bought the game again for his cousin on her 5th birthday.

manages to achieve game complexity without rule complexity. Game does not seem perfectly tuned though - parrot cards too effective.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun game for both young and adult., 6 Nov 2013

Bought this game for my six years. I was missing a game that we both could play and enjoy. Most of the childrensgames I've played isn't much fun for me so I was playing more by duty than enjoyment. This game is a different story. Much like the normal Catan this is a game of resourses and exploation. Instead of trading between players, a market is added and this makes the game more fun and more understandeble for youngsters. We really like the game, my daughter and I, and recommend it to any one who likes a good game.

Upon delivery the game was missing two sheets of tiles, but that was quickly fixed by Amazons great costumerservice.

This review is from: Catan Junior Board Game (Toy)
Settlers of Catan is just one of those games, a building game that just seems perfectly balanced and never ceases being fun.

Settlers of Catan Junior was an oddity. Being a junior version of the game implies simplicity, but Settlers was already a fair simple game. Well, the simplification is there, though most of it simply replacing the 'boring' framing of the original with more child friendly terms and ideas. the Settlers are long gone, and in their place pirates. Rather than towns and cities, your building a pirate base, and rather than buying development cards you get ..

coco cards.

Okay, so it doesnt all work so well. (seriously, was calling them Plunder or Swag not on the table?). But mechanically its still the same game, gaining recourses from the areas surrounding your bases, and expanding where you can.

Essentailly the same game, its well worth playing even if you dont have kids. Having a family game to pay with your children is great, but to be honest this is as good a starting point as any for someone wanting to get into Catan, especially if like me you love a good (if increasingly overused) pirate version. Pirate Muchkin Check!, Pirate Catan Check! And evening of bad accents, Johny depp impressions and absent rum.. Check!

loads of fun!
