A review of Crazy Cats



This is one of my kids' favorite games. They are 4 and 8, but it's just as fun for me, too. The object of the game is to draw a cat on a dry erase board, one feature per turn. For example, on the first turn, each player makes the body. On the next, the head shape is drawn. The science comes in as the cats' features are determined by the dominant and recessive genes passed down by their parents. Most of the time, the dominant traits (e.g., oval body or four legs) will prevail. When both parents pass down recessive genes for a feature, though, the player can get creative. Will the cat have a square head? Three eyes? A curly tail? The cats can get very interesting as the players try to come up with more and more wild recessive traits.

This is a fun game to play with just a few, but it also works really well with large groups. We played it at the kid's table at a Science March and had a lot of repeat customers.

Overall, Crazy Cats is a blast and highly recommended!
