I've owned Starship Catan for a long time. I've pulled it out at least once with each of my kids and put it away when it seemed way to complex, most recently with my youngest a couple of months ago.

I decided to try again today.. it might be because we've recently learned Catan Card Game but it all seemed quite straightforward when I read through the rules again. And so we played. And it seemed like it should be fun, but I couldn't make any progress while my son could build anything he wanted, seemingly due to his having randomly drawn one specific card early in the game which gave him a resource vital to everything which I couldn't get. I ended up stopping the game after an hour or so because it was going nowhere for me. we'll try again before giving it away..

followed it up with Balloon Cup which he's played before and likes a lot.

then this afternoon I found a package on the doorstep - surprising since our mail isn't delivered on Saturdays - containing Key Market. I've recently taught my sons to play Keythedral and we liked the look of the latest game in the series so I've been hanging out for it to arrive. my older kids were busy so I sat down with my seven-year-old to give it a shot. had a horrible time with the manual (I probably needed to spend time reading while setting up a dummy game rather than skimming them then trying to teach my still-learning-to-read son) but once it clicked it was a lot of fun. we had to stop after only four seasons of play (the game is supposed to last eight) and I'm looking forward to getting back to it soon..
