CATAN JUNIOR BOARD GAME
Explore the seas! Catan: Junior introduces a modified playing style of the classic Settlers of Catan, giving players as young as six a perfect introduction to the Catan series of games.
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.

Why are building blocks great for kids?
Building blocks help encourage and enhance problem-solving from a young age as well as integrate their own constructions into pretend play scenarios. Studies suggest they can help kids develop motor skills, hand-eye coordination and spatial skills. In addition, build their capacity for creative, divergent thinking as well as social skills.
