About

The recipe for a fantastic game 

Hi, I'm Johan, a board game enthusiast from Sweden. I wanted to make a game that is fun for everyone. A game for people who normally doesn't like board games. A game for people who love all kinds of board games.

For everyone to enjoy it, the game had to be simple. Uncomplicated. Something that anyone could instantly understand how it works. 

I wanted it to be fast. A game that doesn't take hours to play and where you don't spend most of the time waiting for others to complete their turn.

And the game needed to be based on skills, not luck.  

So I created a card game with super simple rules:

1) Draw a cat 

2) Everyone picks a card

3) The winner gets the cat

4) The cat gives you points 

Everyone always plays, there are no waiting times. And, it is all about guessing what your opponent will play and counter that. So the game is super easy to understand, but you have to be smart and skilled to win. 

How the game works 

You win the game by collecting cat-cards.

Draw a cat-card from the deck and put it down on the table so everyone can see it. Now the battle for the cat begins. And its pretty simple: Whoever pays the most for the cat, gets the cat. Unless you use a card that says otherwise.

There are 12 different cards you can choose from. Pick one and put it upside down on the table. Everyone reveals what card they have picked at the same time. The winner gets the cat.

So why not pick the best card every time?
Two reasons:
1. There are no such thing as "the best card". There is always another card who can beat your card. Sort of like rock, paper, scissors.
2. When you have used a card you discard it and cannot use it again. So you want to save the best cards for the best cats.

Everyone starts with the same set of cards. So you know what options the other players have, and they know what you have. The game is really about guessing what card everyone else will use and then counter that.

Win the cats and win the game.

Feedback from people who tried the game

When I created the first version of the game I didn't really expect it to be fun. I saw it as an idea that would need a lot of refining. So with this in mind I sat down with my wife and a couple of friends to try the game for the first time. And the game was actually really fun to play.

A lot of people has tried the game now. It has been tested and refined time and time again. Every single person who tried the game has instantly understood how it works. They think it's fun and most people want to play a second time right after finishing the game.

Risks and challenges

I have already found a manufacturer and ways to ship the game anywhere in the world. If we reach our funding goal we will have enough orders to get the game manufactured at a bulk price.

I am therefore fairly confident that I can deliver what I promise. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
