Laser Kittens is live on Kickstarter!

Laser Kittens, a game of tiny kittens growing up and learning to control their lasers, is live on Kickstarter. In Laser Kittens, you'll play kittens being fostered at the Knoll St School for Wayward Kittens, a house where humans take in orphaned and abandoned kittens and take care of them until they're ready to find their Forever Homes. You'll learn important lessons from your adult cat professors, such as how to control your laser -- a special superpower that humans don't know about. Use your laser to summon a herd of emus to your aid, or teleport all of the catnip into the basement, or to erase a bad human from history.

Laser Kittens is a cooperative storytelling game suitable for everyone from pre-teens to adults. Using two standard decks of playing cards, you'll bid for control of the story. Players take turns being Class Captain, setting the scene and controlling any NPCs while the other players narrate the actions of their kittens. When your laser goes off, you never know if it will do something amazing or backfire terribly, creating kitten chaos. The fun is in seeing what happens!

When you back Laser Kittens you can get a PDF and audio versions of the rulebook, or a softcover physical copy (100 pages, 6x9 inches). At higher pledge levels, you can get your cat included as an NPC, or even have our artist (Cynthia Lee) incorporate your cat into the book's illustrations. Back Laser Kittens today!
