We’ve been playing so many board games this summer. I’ve loved sitting down with my kids most days and have them play fun games that aren’t on devices!

I can confidently say that we now have a family favourite game – Catan Junior!
About Catan Junior
Catan Junior is an easy game to learn and set up. In this strategy game, players are pirates. They must build lairs and use ships to take over islands on the Catan map. The goal of the game is to place all your seven lairs on the map.
To obtain ships and lairs, players must trade goods that they earn throughout the game. Catan Junior also has wild cards you can trade for and a ghost pirate that blocks other players and gives bonuses to the player who gets to move it.
My family loved this game from the first time we played it.
We all have our own strategies. The game can get very intense when players are almost done placing their lairs on the game board.
Catan Junior is recommended for ages 6 and up. It’s fast-paced, original and lots of fun.
I highly recommend this game as a gift or for your next family game night. You can purchase Catan Junior in stores and online.
More Asmodee Games
There are many Asmodee games to choose from that my family can’t wait to try.

Ah! I’m just in love with all Catan games.
I love having family game night wish we could do it more often.
I played this game with my family when I visited them in NB and love it. Such a fun game. The Junior game must be as much fun!
This is a very fun game! Our family enjoys it.
I miss family game night with my family, but when my grandchildren come over we pull out the games, right now the favourite one between them is Orangutwang, they love that game
I heard this game is great for young children for learning, looks like to much fun.
I see that it says ages 6+, but do you think a 6yo would actually “get” it enough to see it through? She recently learned crazy 8s, but hasn’t really gotten into board games.
I think if you play a few times a 6-year-old could totally get it. The game might be a slower pace but it would still be super fun.
This looks like a lot of fun. I am going to grab this for the family so we can enjoy on game night.
Sounds like you guys loved this one!
I don’t think I’ve ever played a Catan game before, though I have heard of it!
