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!
"I thought it was complex enough to engage older kids, yet not too daunting a ‘strategy game’ for younger ones. The best part about the junior versions of popular adult board games is that it takes a shorter time to play, and has more appealing graphics! If you’re a huge Settlers fan, then I think you’d probably want to foist this on your kid before he can even talk. Haha!" - Lyn Lee - mother of 2 young girls.

"I would highly suggest this game to any parent, relative, or friend of a child. Literally, if you know a child, you should buy them this game. My five year old can already grasp the mechanics and enjoys playing with her big sister who is eight." - BGG user Chad Hensley
"Catan Junior is a great adaptation of a phenomenal game that is a lot of fun and help introduce younger players to the world of Catan without overwhelming them." - BGG user Jeriko McKell
