Play as cats catching birds in this simultaneous reveal crazy game.
In stock (can be backordered)
A Taunt card will be added to each cat deck. This will give cats the ability to cancel other cat’s actions. Each cat will also have a special ability that they can use once per game. Each player will target another cat and a location where a bird is hanging out. A turn consists of 2 rounds. Players select 1 card for the first round and 2 cards for the second round. All players reveal their cards simultaneously in each round. Actions are resolved as in the Basic game, but now you will need to plan ahead and be wary of those Taunt card.
“The game itself is actually really, really well done. On the surface, it seems like it’s relatively simple, but there is a whole subset of psychology going on the in the game, which makes it a lot of fun to play.” – Chris Moore Co-Owner of The Game Chateau (Game Cafe) Wilkes-Barre PA
“Dan Hundycz has developed a fun, ‘programmed-turn’ card game that is approachable by anyone who enjoys games… and cats… and eating birds once they’ve been properly batted around and played with for bigger points.” – Curt Covert Smirk & Dagger Games
“I was really impressed with this game” – Princess Margaret of the Rouge Princess Squadron
“Better than Pong!” – Baldo owner of Baldo’s Armory Rochester, NY
“…a light filler that I very much enjoyed and probably will back (editors note: He did!)” – Matthew McHale Not Just Another Gaming Podcast/The Dicetower Network.
I recently received my copy of CATS and was able to play it with some friends. [The] First set of games were a big success since it is a straightforward and entertaining game in which the (un)predictiveness of your opponents’ actions can result in a surprising sequence of events. – Kwinten Kickstarter backer

A great, simple game with bluffing mechanics. It’s fun to play, and the names of the birds are hilarious!

Fun little game. Love the theme of cats eating birds, that’s up my alley. And the main mechanic where you try to anticipate everyone’s move and then yourself -naturally- outsmart with your move (or more likely realize that you overthought it and nobody did what you thought they would do and therefore you are indeed not going to catch or steal a bird this round), that’s something I really enjoy. Might depend a bit on the group you play with and it could use a little cheat sheet for the order of things but I had a good time with it. (played with 5)

Fun, light programming-deduction game. Reading what your opponents will do IS the fun of it. Rendering your opponent cat unable to eat the 8-point bird and THEN stealing it is always fun. For you.
