Ok, the box says "30 cat counters".

My question: will this be 30 different pictures of cats? Or just 10 or 15 different cats?
I love the illustrations!!

Give me ALL the cats! I love the one that's sitting and looking up at "you". Very cute, and a nice variation with the rest of them (of what we've seen so far) being in napping poses.

(love the kitty butt wiggle theme you have going on, haha)

Let me first say that I love all creatures and wish all cat lovers the best of times with their pets. However I am extremely allergic to cats. Like put me in the hospital if I'm around them or go into someone's house that has them so I naturally have a fear and loathing when I see them. Even seeing them in this game makes me cringe and on some sub-conscious level makes me want to avoid the game. Which really sucks because I adore Patchwork and really want this game as well but I know whenever I play it I will feel awkward. I wish it would have been squirrels or something.

There will only be the 5 cats I already posted. Though I would have loved to have 30 different ones.

I've read they will be using real cat hair for the illustrations so yeah stay away from the game if possible.

Are the cats thematically well integrated into the game? Killing small rodents and birds and burying their ***t in the flower bed?

So make it squirrels... or raccoons or ferrets! You should not have to not play a game because of one marker- that can be easily changed.

1st. That is terrible to hear that you got such a physical reaction towards cats. I only have this vs. specific plants and this is horrible when these bloom. SO all the best for you there.

2nd. If you have someone who can change the counters you can use any counter available in your games. Buttons from Patchwork, mices from Mhhh, etc.

Have a great day!

This gave me a chuckle! It's not possible . I'll definitely be buying the game. I may be crazy but I'll not be avoiding the game due to the way I feel about cats. Thanks for all of the sympathy for my allergies! Hadn't thought about alternate tokens. I'd love to see some promo rabbits or squirrels to replace the cats. I'd definitely buy them.

Hedgehogs are fine (but very noisy), just be content you don't have any badgers, huge destructive bruisers that you cant do ANYTHING* about


* Badgers are completely protected by law here in the UK.
