I noticed one of our friends (and brain-damaged as I am, I forget which one) playing the Catan Junior game with their young children. Since I have become tired of Chutes and Ladders and Candy Land, I figured it was worth a try, so I picked it up at Chambanacon and brought it back as a gift for Katie and Julie.
Many games of Catan Junior have now been played with varying degrees of success. The biggest problem is that Katie has yet to win the game.
Did I mention that Katie is rather competitive? :)
