Catan Junior takes families with children ages 6 years and upwards to an adventurous world of pirates. Players build pirate hideouts - pirates' lairs - all over the islands in Catan, and set sail to find new places and building more lairs.
Fans of the original Catan game will easily recognise that many essential elements of the base game are included in Catan Junior. Players roll dice and depending on the numbers rolled, collect resource tiles such as gold, goats, wood, molasses and cutlasses.
These tiles are used to build ships and more pirates' lairs or to buy development cards, 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.
Watch out for the 'Ghost Captain' who blocks the resource production of the islands he is placed on and gets in the way of you as the pirates!
Catan Junior can be played as a 2, 3 or 4 player game and takes around 30 to 40 minutes to play.
Catan Junior is a game that children and adults will enjoy thanks to the mix of strategy and luck. The illustrated cards and playing pieces are really well made, this is a lovely game for families who enjoy playing together and can sit for a decent length of time.
