Knocking on wood as I type this, but I've been really fortunate that our two cats have never done that, even though they hang out in the same room where one or two wargames are usually set up. I'm always thinking that I have to be especially nice to the cats all of the time, as the implied threat of game destruction looms over my head!

the cat looked at your play and decided you were going to lose so it implemented a global nuclear catastrophe.

Cats know all, just accept it and try harder.

Looks like a kind of Operation Seelowe. (German speakers won't be surprised.)

Probably has to do with the idea that cats will generally knock the counters around a bit, while dogs will just eat the damn things.

When they said "lacquer and bake your counters," they didn't mean in butter and olive oil.

Yes, but does your cat actually eat the counters or just knock them around?

On a completely unrelated note, is anyone interested in adopting a charming orange cat?

I feel your pain. I haven't had a cat-related wargame disaster in a long long time now, but one cat we had (Cleo) would get on a game and no matter what the game, would sit on the Russian front (Napoleonic, WW1, WW2, whatever topic).

As for dogs - they won't jump up, but I have witnessed first-hand the carnage a large dog's wagging tail can do to a game. Oh the (cardboard) humanity!

Thanks for the laughs all. I knew I would find some kindred spirits here who could understand the scope of this disaster!

I'm all about dog. Cats need not apply at my house, though we have a couple delinquents scurrying about at my wife's request.

My dog loves me so much he'd be willing to play games if he only had opposable thumbs.

I stuck with dogs ever since the family cat got on the ping pong table and literally did a donut or two on the game board before jumping off the table and hiding ...
