The Isle of Cats

The City of Games are a UK publisher with a varied output. From The City of Kings, to Valoran Gardens and now The Isle of Cats. The Isle of Cats is a game about filling a boat with cats. The cats come in various Tetrisy shapes and different colours. You will have to keep families (colours) of cats together, while also maximising your scoring.

As well as placing your cat tiles on your ship you will be drafting cards and these cards will dictate your game strategy. You will draft lesson cards that give you points for achieving different objectives, baskets for holding any cats you manage to rescue, treasures to capture, and hopefully ways to befriend high scoring Oshax felines.

Filling your boat is also important, as any rooms you haven’t filled and rats you haven’t covered will lose you points at the end. As well as baskets to catch cats you are going to need to tempt them with food – in this case fish. At the start of every day (round) you will be given 20 fish from the supply, and will then draft cards until you have 7 each.

From this selection you will choose which cards you want to keep and pay the cost in fish. Don’t go overboard though as you will need to save some for luring cats too. Lesson cards are either public or private and offer up more point scoring opportunities.

Green cards help you catch cats by giving you a speed value (highest speed gets first pick of the cats) and baskets to use. Cats are in one of two fields and each have a cost associated with it which must be paid in fish. Isle of Cats is a great choice for gamers and families with it’s easy to simplify rules and also includes a ruleset for solo gamers.
