About

Last Cat Standing is an easy to learn fun party game for 2 to 4 players (ages 7+), takes about 15-30 mins to play and contains 54 individually unique playing card designs, featuring all your favourite cats and phrases associated with our furry feline friends.  

The game box also includes all the other items needed to play the game, such as dice, tokens and a rule sheet.  

Additional players can be added via the 'Big Cat' expansion pack or by simply ordering additional sets.

The Image below shows a brief summary of how the game works.

Alternatively, you could just make up your own rules! We don't care, as long as you have fun - and to help you with that, the contents are below.

 

So - why a game about cats?  Well, originally it wasn't. Let me explain...

Ever since a small child Stu has been inventing games (that was a long time ago, but not a different galaxy, so that's okay).  Often he would dazzle family (or more likely befuddle them) with his latest game.

Then Stu grew up.  This meant doing grown up things like a job (boring!) and paying the bills (ultra boring!), but it did mean he could do other things too, like drink beer (yay!) and start a family (ultra yay!).

But the passion for making games never left Stu. He would always be thinking of ways to make existing games better, or new ideas. He even invented card based drinking games for the pub crawls he would do with his mates!

And then Stu discovered the magical online world of Kickstarter and realised he could make this childhood dream come true.  So Stu started thinking of ideas for a game, making notes, doing research and thinking of game mechanics and eventually a prototype game was made.

But then one day something startling happened to Stu while at work on his computer.  He stumbled across some innocuous cat sayings. Phrases such as 'Cat got your tongue?' and 'Cat on a hot tin roof' along with 'Hell Cat', 'Alley Cat' and 'Fat Cat' were jumping out of the screen and metaphorically punching Stu in the face - He knew that if he wrote them all down he'd have enough for a full card game. 

And better still, he could see that the game mechanics he'd been working on for the other card game would work perfectly (or should that be Purrfectly, groan!) with this new Cat game.

But Stu realised that such an amazing, awesome, totally addictive and fun party game (Am I selling it too much?) would need some equally amazing images to go with it. And that's where Jack joined the story, with his unique and quirky illustrating style. And thus The Boxroom 21c team was born - named to reflect Stu and Jack's modern working arrangements (they both work from home out of their spare rooms, mostly just in their pants!).

And so there it is. The origin story, or prologue if you like, for Last Cat Standing, a game featuring Exploding Furballs, Hypnotic Buttholes and a Ninja Kitten.

Oh, and some of these too:

  • A Bag of Rats
  • Catnip Brownies
  • Cool Cats
  • A Cat Herder
  • Cat's Eyes
  • A Crazy Cat Lady
  • The Knicker Drawer
  • A Glamour Puss
  • Laser Pointers
  • A Room Full of Rocking Chairs
  • Killer Cucumbers
  • A Cat O' Nine Tails
  • Mesmeric Catcalls

And much, much more.

So, please help Stu achieve his childhood dream - after all, grown men never really do grow up anyway...

May all your games stay fun!

- Stu & Jack

Risks and challenges

We don't really anticipate any issues with production - Jack knight, the Illustrator and Co-Creator has already produced a selection of prototype images and is on standby to create the remaining custom images, in his unique style and to the highest standards, based on initial concept designs once the funding is underway - but this has been factored into the expected delivery date.

Game production will be taken care of by the experienced guys at Admagic, who also produced other well know card games such as Cards Against Humanity and Exploding Kittens.

Shipping is also in place and will be looked after by ShipNaked, who have taken care of many previously successful Kickstarter campaigns and can easily ship to anywhere in the world using their extensive network of distribution centres.

We've taken care to try and keep the production simple to ensure we get a fun game into your hands as quickly as possible, once funding is achieved. Obviously with any new project there may be issues or hold ups for a variety of unforeseen reasons out of our control, but we promise to keep you regularly updated and informed along every step of the process.
