Cat Rescue is a cooperative game. Players work together to rescue cats and adopt them. It would be the same idea in real life. We just need more people to be involved and save more of them.

Cat Rescue is a 1 to 4 player game. You can play the game by yourself because you alone can rescue cats and adopt them.

Cat Rescue is a 15 minute family game. It's a game to share with friends and family because together we can save a world of cats.

Curious Cat comes with Purple expansion. If you would like to exchange it to Clowder Time expansion, please message me after backing the project. There is no additional charge.

Purple expansion adds a fifth color in the game and allows the game to be played up to 5 players. It also comes with a 5-color wild cat. It is a -3 points if it is flipped or adopted. Components: Purple Cat x 6. Wild Cat x 1.

Clowder Time is an event expansion. You resolve one event card every time a group of ready-to-adopt cats are out of the shelter and adopted. Some are good and some are bad. Components: Clowder Time event card x 6.

Risks and challenges

My previous Kickstarter projects, including Kung Pao Chicken which funded in Jan 2018 and all delivered in Feb/Mar 2018, had taught me many invaluable lessons. I spent years trying to understand my mistakes so when I launch Cat Rescue, I will be more prepared. This is my fifth Kickstarter project and I will deliver.
