Catan Junior Version Board Game
A Catan adventure for fledgling swashbucklers. Explore the Seas Catan: Junior introduces a modified playing style of the classic game giving younger players the opportunity to experience the world of Catan. Designed for players as young as 5 and is a perfect introduction to the Catan series of games for kids and families. Catan: Junior takes place on a ring of islands where 2 to 4 players build hideouts, and 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, then builds ships in order to expand their network. The more hideouts you build, the more resources you may receive. You use your resources to build ships, hideouts or get help from Coco the Parrot. Just watch out for the dreaded Ghost Captain. Be the first player to control seven pirate hideouts and you win the game.
Junior Catan contains 106 die cut markers representing resources and specials, 4 player cost boards, 1 two sided game board, 28 Pirate hideouts (7 each of 4 colors), 32 Ships (8 each of 4 colors), 1 pirate ghost, 1 die, 1 tray, 1 box, 1 rule book.

My family loves Catan, and I want to encourage my grandchildren to get into it as well. I bought two games, so hopefully we can even do it over the internet. It's actually pretty easy to get the hang of this junior version as an adult. Yet to see how my 6 y.o. granddaughter copes. If she can get it off her parents!
This version has a very low entry barrier for younger kids into to world of Catan. The pirate-theme definitely works and makes it very approachable. A game lasts about 20 minutes. The only downside is the box insert which does not make sense in my opinion. Looks like they repurposed another insert? I made my own insert with foam board for an easy fix.
So easy to order and the game arrived within the allotted amount of time.
Fantastic. My 5 year old twins understood it straight away and we had a great game, first time
