The Fast & The Furriest

Claw your way to victory as you live the life of a cat. The unique card-based strategy game will have players collecting human affection, making mischief, and fighting for dominance at the cat bowl. Maybe you'll choose to climb the curtains, scrounge up a midnight snack, or take an irresistibly adorable catnap. But be alert! This is a feline free-for-all, and the other cats in the game will do anything to stop you. 2-6 players, ages 8-80. Created by Al Gonzalez III, Elise Spacek, and Shawn Strider. Made in China.

“I remembered how my cats would always try and be as cute and affectionate as possible, as if they knew they could get away with more mischief that way.”

Al Gonzalez III, Elise Spacek, and Shawn Strider are best friends and designers. And in 2013, they were also starting to get bored. They were making art for clients 9 to 5, but wanted to break out and do something that let them be creative on their own terms. For their first collaboration, they drew inspiration from experience working in the indie game design scene, and also their shared history of pet cats. They realized that, while they had played plenty of cat-themed games, they had never seen a game that captured the experience of cat behavior. They put their collective talent to work, and their creation has been catnip for both cat lovers and card players.

A great game! Perfectly embodies the cat personalities as you strive to be the dominant feline and body check everyone else out of your environment.
I had ordered 2 sets as gifts and need to order more to silence the malcontents! As well as another for me! Much more cunning and fun than Monopoly!

      Didn't get a chance to play this - lots of rules and with me being sick and also playing with my 84 year old mother-in-law; we decided to go with something easier!
