The Story So Far

So I have been working on this card game for a while now, me and my friends have tried and tested it countless times with several decks of cards altered with marker pens & sticky notes, now after many amendments, it is ready to be made and played.

The game is fun and is as close as I could get to a game I used to play and love when I was growing up, I have added a few new mechanics to make it new and original and Cats themed.

This is a relaunch campaign, my previous did not fund, since then I have updated the graphics and the reward packages and hope to do better this time.

How to Play

Each player is dealt 4 cards face up and 9 cards face down. The 4 cards  face up are to be kept in hand and the 9 cards face down cannot be seen  or used until the end of the game when there is no more deck cards to draw from (9 Lives End Game)

Each turn players must lay a card of equal or higher value than the  player before, for example: on top of a 4, you can lay a 4 or higher. 

As long as there are cards left in the deck, players must keep a  minimum of 4 cards in hand at all times, so, if you lay 2 cards, you  pick up 2, if you lay 1 card, you pick up 1.

If you have multiples of the same number you can lay them at the same time.

If you lay 4 or more of the same number, you can Scratch the Deck (discard the pile and lay a new start card).

 Super Power Cat Cards (Can be placed on any card, almost):

1 = Can be laid on any card and is the lowest value card in the game

3 = Can be placed under the pile (Hide Card)

6 = Can be laid on any card, the next player must play a double (2 or  more cards of the same value)  or Alpha (11 or 12) card next

9 = Can be laid on any card, the next player must lay lower than a 9

10 = Can be laid on any card, the card pile is discarded and a new start card is laid (Scratch the Deck)

? = Wild Cat Card can be any card the player wants it to be

1 in every 4 cards of a set is a 'One of a Kind' card, special cards cannot be played on top of these cards!

Good Cat Bad Cat

Every time you place a card of the same value of the player before,  for example: you lay a 5 on top of a 5, you pick a card up from the  'Good Cat Bad Cat' deck. Good Cat Cards offer advantages to players that  can be helpful to the player (especially during the 9 lives end game)  and Bad Cat Cards make the game harder for the player.

 The 9 Lives End Game

 When there are no more cards to pick up from the deck, and you have  no more cards left in hand, you must play the 9 face down cards 1 at a  time, this is where Good Cat Cards can come in very helpful, starting  the 9 Lives End Game before other players will put you at an advantage  too.

The first player to get rid of all their cards wins!

Shipping Will Be Arranged & Charged After The Campaign

Shipping will be arranged after the campaign and the shipping charge is  not included in the pledge cost, this way I can provide options to my  backers and give them the most cost effective shipping method custom to  their requirements.

Risks and challenges

I am being very careful with the production side of things to ensure the production & shipping is swift and reliable. The total funding goal is what I need to produce the games to a high quality standard which is why the shipping will be arranged separately, as I don't want the shipping cost to contribute towards my total funding goal here on Kickstarter.
