Catan: Junior takes place on a ring of tropical isles - including the mysterious Spooky Island, home of the Ghost Captain. Each island generates a specific resource: wood, goats, molasses, or cutlasses. You can also find gold. You start with two pirate lairs, and then build ships in order to expand your network. The more lairs you build, the more resources you may receive. Use your resources to build ships, lairs, or to get help from wise Coco the parrot.

About the Game
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. Resource 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.
