Settlers of Catan for Kids
Ars has a great review on the conversion of the popular board game Catan Junior.
It was at this point that Owen came to the realization that he had accidentally cornered the market on wood. His stockpile was enormous, and only three additional wood remained in the marketplace for all the other players to compete for. Owen was suddenly a very popular person, the youngest lumber magnate in northern Illinois. Owen and William both began to haggle mercilessly with Teagan and Jeff.
The kids simply lit up over the game. I talked a bit with Jeff after the game was over about how he felt the kids took to the game. “I enjoyed it. It allowed me a lot of opportunities to get them to start to think about (consequences). I think continued play will reinforce the next level thinking.”

Thanks to Trevor for bringing this to my attention.
