Like 'The Settlers of Catan' but faster. Perfect for introducing children to the real board games.

brought it home, and the kids love it. ages 7, 8, and 11.
I think they love the resource pieces more than the rest of the game.

Perfect Catan for families with kids (ages 6 and above). Great components, streamline rules, fast pace, fun and exciting game for young kids. Finally a great version of Catan for kids!

This rating is based on playing with my kids. For just grown ups this would drop to 6 or maybe even 5. Our 5 year old son loves the games and can't get enough of it. It is indeed a nice step up for the 'real' thing.

Update 11-2010: Just played the game for the first time with our now 5.5 year old daughter. She likes is just as much as our son did.

Rating is for play with kids. This is a successful simplification of the original Settlers of Catan that is a bit kid-friendlier and shorter to play. See my full review for more detail.

Great introduction to the Catan franchise. My 5 and 8 year old kids just can't get enough, and if they do, it will be very easy to switch to heavier stuff (such as the basic game).

Well balanced, fun game with enough challenge and elements for kids as a runner up for the real stuff.
Kids love it. Short game, nice in-between things

Rating based on my interest playing with children of the appropriate age, in this case age 6+.

This Klaus Teuber game is in German only. Rules in English are here on BGG. There are also a few cards in German, but there are only essentially 3 kinds and they include descriptive pictures so they are easily understood. This game has been out for sometime, and with the popularity of the Catan games, I wonder why this game has not been published in many languages since it is one of the nicest games I have played that is made specifically for children. I am just very pleased with it.

Components are lighter weight molded plastic than I would like, but very nice design. Graphics & colors on the board and cards are okay.

It is the play where this game shines. Play is similar to the regular Catan game, but modified so that it moves quickly and is of course, a little less complicated. Thea pirate theme makes the game more attractive & interesting to children, and it is carried out very well, featuring ships & pirate strongholds/warehouses. For instance, the players are pirates who sail from location to location instead of building roads.
