A live unboxing of the hobby board game Super Cats, a silly filler game by some of the world’s top board game designers: Antoine Bauza, Corentin Lebrat, Ludovic Maublanc, Nicolas Oury, Théo Rivière. Featuring art from Xavier Gueniffey Durin.
Super Cats plays three to six players in about 10 minutes. It was published in 2019 by The Op, the company previously known as USAOpoly.
Disclosure: The Op provided me with a review copy of Super Cats. No other compensation was provided.
Check out my thoughts on this quick-playing card game in my full Super Cats review.
A live unboxing video of the filler card game Super Cats:
In Super Cats, you play as groups of 5 cats who compete to become the Super Cats Heroes, in order to defeat the RoboDog, devourer of cat food! The first player to transform his 5 cats becomes the Hero and will face the other players who will then collectively play as the RoboDog.
Fights occur in real time, with everyone playing simultaneously, using their hands.
In Episode 1, you chant SU-PER-CAT, hold out your hand and raise 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 fingers. If you have the biggest unrepeated number, transform one of your cats into a Super Cat!
In Episode 2, the Hero player clashes with the other players. When the Hero’s attack succeeds, the RoboDog is damaged. When the RoboDog counters the Hero, his Super Cats become normal cats again. The game ends when either the RoboDog is destroyed or the Hero no longer has Super Cats to fight.
