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.
The die-cut resource tiles included in Catan Junior are very convenient for children, because unlike in the Catan game for adults, the players don't have to hold cards in their hands but can place the resource tiles in front of them. Catan Junior can also be played as a 2-player game.
Although Catan Junior contains some simplified rules so that 6-year-olds can participate without any difficulty, it is still unmistakably a "Catan" game. Catan Junior is not just a game for kids but a genuine family game, to be enjoyed by adults and young children alike.
