First of all...we love cats. Second of all, beyond that, this is exactly the same game of monopoly full of same strategies just all named differently. This past week we spent about ten hours playing two different games. We broke up the sessions and went swimming etc., then would be excited to come back to the game. It was me and two ten-year old twin boys. It keeps them off computer and us engaging, laughing and outwitting each other. I got to see how they think, how they plan, take risks, strategize, and make deals. It's a fascinating game that you will play for years and years.
