Growing up, I always hated Monopoly. Maybe because it requires too much strategy, dated game pieces like 'top hat' and 'flat iron', or maybe because whenever there's a game out there that comes with play money, the competition gets ugly pretty fast.
However, those of us who are still pulled to the board by game-obsessed friends and family members, there's a whole new version that's (arguably) much more tolerable to play - and it involves cats. So many cats. (Do you hear that, @RaquelArredondo? So. Many. Cats.)
Meet Cat-Opoly - where you buy cats instead of Atlantic City real estate.
They tossed away the Scottish Terrier and thimble for more cat-themed game pieces, like tuna, mice, and yarn.
The chance cards? Well, let's just say that things can be PURRRFECT! or a total CAT-ASTROPHE!
And - perhaps my favorite part - instead of going to 'jail', you FALL INTO WATER.
If you're interested in buying this for yourself or another crazed cat lady in your life, you can purchase the board on Amazon for $29, but I still want to know:
Is this the board game that will have you changing your mind about Monopoly? Would you want to give this game a shot?
