It’s no big secret that we are a family of cat lovers here. With seven-year-old Brewster and our four-month-old kitten Paddington, ThinkFun knew they’d found the purrfect family to spend time celebrating International Cat Day with Cat Crimes.
Cat Crimes is a logic game aimed at anyone aged eight years and over. It’s predominately a single-player game but my son and I have also enjoyed working together to figure out which puss cat has been rather naughty.
The game comes with a game board, six cat character playing pieces, six crime tokens and forty challenges cards with four levels of difficulty.
Our feline friends come in all shapes and sizes, and having two tuxedo cats ourselves, we were hoping that Mr Mittens rather better behaved than his playmates!
Celebrating International Cat Day with Cat Crimes has seen us cat sitting our neighbours six cats, but they’re rather naughty and we soon have to find out exactly who has been misbehaving. Select a challenge card, which range from beginner to expert. Each comes with a challenge to complete and shows you which crime token you need to place on the board.
Then try to work out where to place the cats around the board using the clues provided to discover which cat is guilty of causing chaos.
The guilty cat should be the one you end up placing in front of the crime.
When you think that you have placed the cats correctly and worked out who is guilty, turn the challenge card over and see if you’re correct.
The game is great fun and not as easy as it looks. It helps players work on their critical reasoning skills as they deduce who sits where and who is to blame. I think that Cat Crimes makes a perfect travel game as it’s compact and would sit easily on an aeroplane fold-out tray.
