Explore the Seas! 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 5 and is a perfect introduction to the Catan series of games for kids and families.

Catan: Junior? takes place on a ring of islands where 2 to 4 players build hideouts, and the mysterious Spooky Island, where the Ghost Captain lives. Each island generates a specific resource: wood, goats, rum 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 ships, 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!

  • Very nice and easy game suitable to young children and adult alike. It gives the feeling and mechanism of the Catan but trim down and simplified.
  • Since I bought this to play with my son, I didn't have high expectations of it. However, after a single play, I am surprised to say that this is perhaps a better game than regular Settlers of Catan (non-Junior version). Basically, this "kid's" game streamlines it down to a 30 min affair by getting rid of player to player trading (although that is an official variant), cities, longest road, and VP developments. It has the same feel of regular Settlers, and even scales down to 2 players by using a double-sided board--why doesn't the other game do that?At this point, I would rather play this than regular Settlers--even among adults. Also worth noting is that the production quality is poor compared with other Euro publishers and even other Mayfair games. Instead of wooden bits, it has plastic. The box is also very thin cardboard, as well as the board. The goods are shaped cardboard tiles that don't stack well. And it doesn't come with plastic baggies to put the pieces in. About the only bits that are of decent quality are the Coco tiles, player aid tiles, and the die.
  • Junior did not like it very much.
