About

Who we developed "Cat Attack" for

It's a cat's world, no doubt. If you're a cat person, you will agree that cats are on top of the foodchain - us humans are merely allowed to feed them. But if we overstep our limits, we're headed for a cat fight. They say that even old dogs can learn new tricks, but any cat will teach you a lesson. Players between 7 and 99 will love this game, best played in a group of 3-5 people.

Why it's fun

Cat Attack, the card game, is a fun mix of Black Jack and Russian Roulette. Players take turns drawing from a deck of cards until attacked by a cat. Simple cat attacks can be put to bed with tactical cards that come in the form of water cannons, cat food and balls of wool or other items.

Watch out, because there are also crazy cats! Attacks by a fearless crazy cat can be deflected to the next player. They usually won't cease attacking before one of the players leaves the round. Only the dog card can really save you then!

Strategic action cards such as Schroedingers Cat (you never know when it hits next) and Future Cat (your crystal ball) finally help you survive in a cat's world. The last player standing wins. The longer you play, the more intense the game gets.

If you lose, you'll be bent on revenge!

How we developed the card game

"Cat Attack" is not the first card game, we developed. Roman also developed the successful Computer Classics Card Game (Retro-Rechner-Quartett), which has been successfully crowdfunded on a German platform.

Verena is a professional graphic designer. She came up with a first sketch of the visuals and we built on that.

Both of us are cat lovers and like to play card game, but would our idea really resonate with others? Hence, we blind tested it.

We played different versions of the game with dozens of total strangers. We used their feedback to refine the game and came up with a version that is fun for kids and grown-ups alike. It was important to us that both small and larger groups would always want to play one more round, after the winner emerges.

When we saw that even dog lovers liked playing "Cat Attack" it, we knew that we could come to you and ask for your crowdfunding support!

Are we copy cats?

Kudos to the "Exploding Kittens" kickstarter, but we say that kittens don't explode! "Cat Attack" has been inspired by the successful crowdfunding campaign for "Exploding Kittens", that was initiated by Elan Leen and supported by TheOatmeal.com.

To be fair, even the developers of "Exploding Kittens" said in their campaign that blowing off kittens didn't sit cool with everyone. They then vowed to explore whether their mix of explosions, kittens and card games were the perfect mix (rephrased from their own statement).

In any case, we think the "Exploding Kittens" campaign was matchless and cannot be immitated. Thus, we also don't expect our campaign to come close to the almost $9 Million they drew in their campaign.

Cat Attack" is your alternative to blowing up kittens!

And for the record: "Cat Attack" has been developed by us without even having a chance to look at the final version of "Exploding Kittens". It is entirely our own. It is a lot of fun and it is close to the realities us humans are facing in a cat's world.

Risks and challenges

This is not the first card game, Roman has crowdfunded. He developed the "Computer Classics Card Game", which has been successfully crowdfunded on a German platform (www.startnext.com/retro-rechner-quartett) and was overfinanced by 616%.

The greatest challenge in terms of costs is international shipping. But the "Computer Classics Card Game" was shipped abroad and thanks to our experience, we already factored this in.
