CATAN Junior takes families with children ages 6 and up to a place quite different from CATAN as we know it. There are no "settlers" around here. Instead, the players slip into the role of pirates who build their hideouts - called pirates' lairs - all over the islands and set sail to find new places and build more pirates' lairs there.

CATAN experts will easily recognize 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.

These 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.

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.

a bit finnicky but they look great on the base

You have to be gentle with them, the "flower" parts tend to clump together when removing from the paper but if you mix them in with other tufts from this range they look superb

Digibrilliant!

This game is different enough from the big three card games (Magic, Pokemon & Yu-Gi-Oh!) to be exciting to play even for a jaded old man like me. The art and lore are a wonderful nostalgia hit for those of is that grew up with the Saturday morning cartoon too. Great game, would highly recommend giving it a go :)

This your dice? Preetty dice!

Bought for 10 yr old daughter as she gets into D&D, my opinions are obviously irrelevant. She ADORES them. Rolls a lot of 20s. Major Dad win.
Thanks Athena for your patience and enthusiasm as both my children ummed and ahhed over their choices, really lovely supportive experience for them. My son later said 'Why can't all shops be like that?' And there you have it.
