Settlers of Catan is a wildly successful board game that is beloved by those who play it. The rules, however, can be a bit complicated for younger players. With this in mind, Catan Studios decided to release a more friendly, junior version of the game.

Kids can now join in on the game beginning at the age of 6. Rather than playing the game as settlers, players now become pirates who capture resources to bring back to their lairs.
