★★★☆☆ You Gotta be Kitten Me!; Only click this post if you truly love kittens.

Check out this game if: you like the game liars dice or press your like games.

This game stands out because: honestly, the name.

Positives:
1. The name -it’s clever and kittens are almost always pawpular.
2. Plays up to 10 people!
3. The images on the cards are perrrfect for the game (and target audience).
4. The game is easy to learn and teach.
5. The bidding or passing is fun (because it’s always fun to see how far you can go).
6. Because this game has a lot of luck, kittens and adults can play together.

Negative:
1. The finer points of the game are a bit finicky.
2. Not a lot of replayability.

Brief Overview:
In this game each player has a hand of cards. On these cards are cats and dogs (I know, it’s not “you gotta be puppying me”). The animals have accessories (i.e. hats, glasses) of certain colors (pink, yellow, green). On your turn, you can guess how many of a certain object or certain color are represented in all the players cards (it’s a guess because you don’t know how many the other players have). Other players can bid higher numbers, but once everyone else passes, everyone reveals their cards. If the revealed cards show the same number or higher than the highest bid , the player wins the hand. If not, they loose.

Versions:
There is a dice version of this game called Liars Dice. If you like press your luck games like this, you may want to check out King of Toyko, No Thanks, or Deep Sea Adventure.

Teaching Advice:
First, show everyone an example of the cards and what is considered an accessory (glasses, and hats…) and what color is being referenced (the color of the accessory). Next explain the bidding/passing process.
