Catan Junior lets younger players experience the world of Catan by introducing a simpler playing style. Designed for 2 – 4 players as young as 6, it is a perfect introduction to the Catan series of games for kids and families.
This game takes place on a ring of tropical isles – including the mysterious Spooky Island, home of the Ghost Captain. Each island generates a specific resource: wood, goats, molasses or cutlasses. You can also find gold. You start with 2 pirate lairs and then build ships in order to expand your network. The more lairs you build, the more resources you may receive. Use your resources to build ships, lairs, or to get help from wise Coco the Parrot. You can even trade in the nearby market.
Just watch out for the dreaded Ghost Captain! The first player to control 7 pirate lairs wins the game.
