Explore the seas! Catan: Junior introduces a modified playing style of the classic Settlers of Catan, giving players as young as five a perfect introduction to the Catan series of games. Catan: Junior takes place on a ring of islands where 2 to 4 players build hideouts and encounter the mysterious Spooky Island, where the Ghost Captain lives. Each island generates a specific resource: wood, goats, molasses or swords, and players can acquire gold. Each player starts with two pirate hideouts on different islands, and they can use the resources they acquire to build ships, hideouts or get help from Coco the Parrot. By building ships, they can expand their network; the more hideouts they build, the more resources they may receive. Just watch out for the dreaded Ghost Captain! Be the first player to control seven pirate hideouts, and you win!

About the Game
Catan experts will easily recognise that many essential elements of the Catan base game are included in Catan Junior, although - in accordance with the theme - they received different names: pirates' lairs are built adjacent to islands, and if the islands' numbers are rolled, the players receive resource tiles. The resource tiles depict gold, goats, wood, molasses, and cutlasses.
Resource tiles are used to build ships and more pirates' lairs or to buy development cards (here called 'Coco tiles'), which are played immediately after their purchase. To launch a new ship, you need wood and wool from goats. And if you want to build a pirates' lair, besides wood and wool you also need a cutlass and molasses.
The robber – well-known from the Catan base game – also exists in Catan Junior, but here he is a spooky fellow named 'Ghost Captain.' The Ghost Captain isn't as bad a guy as the robber in the Catan base game. He blocks the resource production of the islands he is placed on, but that's all - nothing is being stolen.
For Adults and Children Alike
The die-cut resource tiles included in Catan Junior are very convenient for children, because unlike in the Catan game for adults, the players don't have to hold cards in their hands but can place the resource tiles in front of them. Catan Junior can also be played as a 2-player game.
Although Catan Junior contains some simplified rules so that 6-year-olds can participate without any difficulty, it is still unmistakably a 'Catan' game. Catan Junior is not just a game for kids but a genuine family game, to be enjoyed by adults and young children alike.

While it's most interesting with 3 or 4 players the flip side of the board is designed for 2 player games which is a nice touch.
I find that going first is too much of an advantage, but that works quite well when my son challenges me: I can let him go first then play with ruthless efficiency as I attempt to catch up, and still probably avoid tantrums.
