Laser Kittens

Laser Kittens is a storytelling game for 3-5 players. In this game you and your friends will take on the role of a litter of tiny kittens being fostered at the Knoll Street School for Wayward Kittens -- a big house where orphaned kittens learn to grow up to be awesome cats before they get adopted by their forever home! You'll learn important kitty lessons like how to lay in the sun, how to catch bugs, and most importantly, how to control your laser. Every cat has a laser, and every laser is different. Your laser gives you special powers, like duplicating objects or controlling other animals. If you're not careful, your laser might go off without warning and cause some chaos!

There is no designated GM in this game. Instead, all the players share GM duties by bidding to be "Class Captain" for a scene. As Class Captain, you can decide what your fellow players are up against in each scene. And whenever you like, you can let someone else take over as Class Captain and try out their ideas.
Want to hear how the game plays? Check out our sessions on the Fandible or Party of One podcasts!

To play face to face, you'll need printed copies of the character sheets and house sheet, pencils, and two decks of regular (poker) playing cards. To play online, you'll need an online character keeper and an online card manager like or Roll20.
