Too Many Poops is a cat collection card game where players compete to become the first to score 10 points of cats in their home. But the more cats you have, the more poops you’ll get—and too many will lose you the game! Adopt cats from the pet store, donate rival cats to other players, and use lures to get you the cats that will score you the most.
Will you become the ultimate cat owner, or poop out trying?
PLUS all other unlocked updates! We've got 12 so far! See Stretch Goals section below and our Updates section for more details about what we've unlocked.
We also have an Add-Ons section below with optional packs you can add to your pledge.
The game is played over multiple rounds. Players take turns getting, playing, and scoring cats. When a player scores 10 points they win! But if instead they get 10 poops, they're out of the game!
You start your turn by drawing cards from the Items or Cats decks, or by choosing from any of the face-up cards in the Pet Store.
Cat cards will score you points, but item cards help you lure cats in and out of homes, remove poops, and much more!
You have to play one cat every turn. You can do so into any home (yours or an opponent's) or into a common area next to the Pet Store called The Wild. You may also play up to two items per turn!
When you play cats into your home, you're trying to play cats of the same litter or set (color background), since that doubles their value!
Instead, you could also create rivalries by playing cats into other homes. Every cat has a rival and when they're both in the same home, they flip!
Flipped cats don’t score any points. But don't worry if this happens to you, there's plenty of ways to find other homes for rivals so your cat can get back to being happy.
There's also a few very very special rainbow cats—the designers’ cats, actually—that can be counted towards any color set and don't have any rivals. Because why would they.
The game also now includes four extra blank rainbow cats so you can customize them and swap out our cats with yours!
At the end of your turn you add one poop (using the poople tokens) to your litter box for every cat in your home. Certain cards will allow you to remove poops throughout the game. If you ever have 10+ poops you’ll be out of the game!

How is this beta version different? This is an earlier stable version of Too Many Poops. We're expecting we'll continue to improve the game throughout the Kickstarter campaign and that there will be rules and card changes in the published version. This print and play also doesn't include certain components, like our infamous pooples.
We need your support now to make Too Many Poops the best game it can be! As a backer you're not just helping us publish Too Many Poops, but you'll help us unlock stretch goals throughout the campaign that will improve key components of the game for everyone.

Risks and challenges
We’re first time game makers but have extensive experience in large scale product development and management, specifically with projects of print and software products. We have been preparing ourselves for months to understand and figure out the best way to produce and deliver this game.
Because our game is significantly developed (about 95% complete) and has undergone hundreds of hours of playtests to ensure the best play experience, we’ll be ready to start manufacturing soon after the Kickstarter ends.
The biggest foreseeable risks, like with most other projects manufactured overseas, are delays in production, shipping, and customs.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
