Kickstarter Highlight: The Isle of Cats

A 60-90 minute long game, made by an experienced gamer for experienced gamers? Nice! However I really do love a board game that comes with nicely crafted pieces and thankfully, that’s exactly what we’ve got today. The Isle of Cats by Frank West looks like a wonderful, simple experience with a lot of complexities added in. With a standard game mode and even a solo game mode, these cats are sure to keep you company. With a beautifully presented box, what do we make of The Isle of Cats Kickstarter Campaign?

What Is The Isle of Cats?

Props to my sister for pointing this one out to me, as it turns out her friend was sharing this project. When I looked at the name of the creator, I realised I’d seen his name pop up in the past, as he’s a Bristol-based game developer. Unfortunately for my sister, according to developer Frank, you can’t let your sister beat you. If you’re reading this sis, you’re on. Anyway, let’s have a look at The Isle of Cats!

With just 12 days to go from this article, the Isle of Cats is already fully funded. It’s a cute placement game where you have to rescue as many kitties from the evil Lord Vesh as possible. Each cat has its own unique tiles and family, so you have to make it so they can all get on your boat as safely as possible. However, only one person can be the true hero of the cats, by saving as many of the cats as possible.

The cat polyomino’s are fantastic looking and the product looks incredibly sleek. If you’re a board game collector, this is one that’ll sit nicely on your shelves. It also has an appealing look to it and doesn’t seem to hard to learn, so it’ll be one that people go to pick up. The creator of the game has a video (above) of the game and its rules.

Tiers & Rewards

Normally we like to pick out the cheaper options, but today as there are only three tiers, I thought I’d share them all. They’re all pretty reasonable and since the game looks as professional as it does, with the adorable playing pieces, the price feels right.
