About

Affectionate: Cats and Cuddles was initially created in loving memory of Moku: a simple, straightforward, and sweet cat.

The sweetest cat I ever knew :')
The sweetest cat I ever knew :')

Moku was a stray cat who just wanted to be loved and when he passed away, I wanted to remember him with a game that was as simple and sweet as he was. Affectionate: Cats and Cuddles is the realization of that vision.

Simple enough for players of all experiences and ages to play, the core of Affectionate: Cats and Cuddles is about being the sweetest cat in the house by collecting cuddle tokens.

After the initial release of Affectionate: Cats and Cuddles, I looked at ways to keep the base game's core mechanics and feeling, but add more strategy and interaction. From those efforts came the expansion It's Treat Time.

It's Treat Time keeps the same loving core of Affectionate: Cats and Cuddles and adds new mechanics to bring about more interaction and introduce elements of strategy.

The It's Treat Time expansion adds some more components to the bag of Affectionate: Cats and Cuddles: 1 Rulebook, 5 Cat Mats, 5 Cat pawns, and 1 Reference Mat.

It's Treat Time provides two new ways to play Affectionate: an Advanced version introducing a new mechanic - dice drafting (choosing dice from a common pool in turn order) and the It's Treat Time Expansion which adds the mechanic of worker placement - using a pawn to choose from a limited number of actions.

With It's Treat Time, Affectionate is not only a light, fun game, but a way to introduce game mechanics and concepts to younger or less experienced players.

Even with all of these additions, Affectionate: Cats and Cuddles & It's Treat Time Expansion is a light, silly game about being the sweetest cat in the house and its expansions brings new ways to play this simple, sweet game.

The basics of Affectionate: Cats and Cuddles are simple - there are a number of cuddle tokens in the middle and when they are all gone, the game is over and whoever has the most wins!

A turn for Affectionate: Cats and Cuddles It's Treat Time is very simple:

Risks and challenges

With any project there are risks.

This is our second Kickstarter project and will be the 3rd time we have produced a game or game expansion. With our experience, we are familiar with the issues that can occur during the post Kickstarter ranging from final art production issues to shipping. Prior to this project going live on Kickstarter we have worked to ensure that the art meets the correct specifications and have been working to look at our supply chain to ensure that Affectionate: Cats and Cuddles will arrive on time to each of our wonderful backers. To help with this, the base game has already been produced and the Kickstarter is just to fund the expansion.
