Marty the Zebra, Gloria the Hippo, Alex the Lion and Melman the Giraffe rove around the country as competitors, each with their own traveling circus. Where does it best pay to pitch the circus tent? Do fields or meadows or forest or desert bring advantages? By cleverly choosing the best places, one can steadily expand right across the board with the circus. As for the fascinating game depth, the new, optimized “Catan Junior” can easily compete with its big brother “Settlers of Catan”. Whereas the adults gather and exchange resources, the children provide an ample supply of popcorn and cocktails. The moderate, child-friendly playing time and a very workable and entertaining variant for two players make this excellent tactical game interesting not only for fans of the film Madagascar 3.
