Wait! Our Tale Is Not Over!
Just as the Jade Emperor declared the final results to close the day's proceedings, the careless Cat huffed its way across the finish line. It immediately inquired about the position it had finished. The Jade Emperor gravely shook his head and informed the Cat that it was too late and had not made it into the top 12. Extremely angered by the result, the Cat turned on the Rat with its sharp claws, accusing it of not waking the Cat up for the race as promised. The Rat immediately scurried away to save its own life.
As a result of this little drama, though the Rat made it into first place in the Chinese Zodiac, it would spend most of its time hiding from the Cat in dark holes or ceiling beams, fearing the Cat's vengeance.
Enjoying its peaceful slumber, the Cat missed out on the Great Race. Unfortunately, when playing the Cat, you will not participate in the first round of the race. However, whenever you gain at least 3 Movement, 3 Karma, or (3) 1-Energy cards from the Outer Wheel, you will gain 1 additional resource of that very same type.
Because you must gain at least 3 of the type of resource solely from the Outer Wheel, playing the Cat requires some advanced strategies and planning. Maximizing the efficiency of the actions on the Outer Wheel will significantly benefit the Cat's movement on the racetrack!
The Cat Expansion
The Cat animal token and card will be a separate expansion in retail for $9.99. The Collector's Edition of Race for the Chinese Zodiac on Kickstarter comes with the Cat animal token and card!
