POLICE CATS CARD GAME
HABA Germany | 5 years & up
It's a CAT-astrophe! 9 families of cats have been separated from each other, and it is up to us to get them all back together as one!
In this game of card collecting that requires strategy (and a touch of sabotage), players work against each other to end the game with the most number of cards by reuniting the cat families. Everyone take turns drawing cards from the deck, and each card will show either a Father Cat, a Mother Cat, or two baby kittens... or something else altogether that will throw the round into a topsy turvy! For instance:
- A Dog, which will scare away one of your Cats (meaning you have to give away one of your own cards to the next player)
- A Mouse, which will lure a Cat to you (meaning one player of your choice has to give any one of their cards to you);
- A Whistle, which gives you protection in the form of Police Cat himself! (Having Police Cat with you means you have protection from the Dog and never have to give away any of your cards again - that is, until the next player draws a Whistle, upon which you must surrender Police Cat to him/her.)

• Strategic reasoning
• Adaptive thinking
• Impulse control
• Group/family bonding
A fun game that encourages kids to explore how making calculated decisions can affect the performance of their game (as well as the other players')! How do you choose which players to sabotage into surrendering one card to you? Keeping in mind all the game rules, how do you choose the best card to give away such that it creates the least 'loss' to you? With the circumstances of the game changing from round to round, players will learn that indeed, decisions are never black and white and even if you are dealt with the same situation, it is your circumstances that determines the most effective decisions. Promotes the development of disciplined decision makers who are less prone to giving in to their impulses.
