You are sick. I can't believe you actually want to put these cute kittens in a blender! I guess it is none of my business. Perhaps you're more of a dog person. Sure, kittens are curious by nature, but when they are in a kitchen full of dangerous appliances, it is up to you to save them.
This quick-paced card game has players working to save all of their own kittens before the unthinkable happens. But sometimes the only way to save your adorable litter of kittens is to let those curious little cats learn the lesson on why you should never play in a Blender!
According to the box: A portion of the proceeds is donated to a no kill cat shelter.
Save your kittens and send your opponents' to The Blender.
Setup & Play:
Put the game box top on the table, open-side up and put the oversized Blender card inside, face-up: that is The Blender. Put the oversized Box card face up in the base of the box: that is The Box. Leave a bit of space between The Blender and The Box: that is The Counter. Give each player a Kitten color (red, green, blue or yellow), shuffle the deck, deal each player 6 cards and it's time to start saving curious kittens.
On each turn, you play two cards and then pick up a maximum of 6. Kitten cards can be played into The Blender, The Counter or The Box. All other cards are played face up in front of the player so that all players can see what cards have been played.
Players can play Kitties on the Move to move kittens to or from The Blender, The Counter or The Box; the number on the card indicates the number of kittens that can each be moved 1 space. Playing a Blend card will kill the kittens currently in The Blender, save the kittens in The Box, and move the kittens on The Counter into The Blender unless countered by another player's Blend "Pulse" card.
Players may move kittens around with other cards as well. Kittens in the Blender moves all on The Counter or in The Box to The Blender. With These Cats in the Blender a player can move all of a selected color from The Counter and The Box to The Blender. Kittens in the Box moves all in The Blender or on The Counter to The Box, while Cats on the Counter moves all in The Blender or The Box to The Counter.
Total chaos starts when the Dog's in the Kitchen as each player gives her hand to the player in the direction indicated on the card.
The game ends when all 16 of the Blend cards are played. Saved kittens are worth 2 points each, blended kitties deduct 1 point each. Most points wins.
