A Catan adventure for fledgling swashbucklers, Catan: Junior introduces a modified playing style of the classic game giving younger players the opportunity to experience the world of Catan. Designed for players as young as five, Catan: Junior is a perfect introduction to the Catan series of games for kids and families. Catan: Junior takes place on a ring of islands where two to four players build hideouts, avoiding 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, then builds ships in order to expand their network. The more hideouts you build, the more resources you may receive. You use your resources to build shiips, hideouts, or get help from Coco the Parrot. Just watch out for the dreaded Ghost Captain! Be the first player to control seven pirate hideouts and you win the game.
