Who does not know the colloquial expression "Buying the cat in the sack" ("Buying a pig in a poke")? In this game you can experience the meaning of this expression yourself. A group of cats wants new owners, but these lucky people do not know if they get some sweet pussycats or one or more mean old cats. Sometimes only a dog is helpful, who chases the unwanted cats away. But then too many dogs are worse, too, because they only think about chasing themselves away. A clever auction game with many interesting decisions.

Idea of the game: With their mice, the players attempt to grab the famous cat in the sack. In the sack, there are both good and bad cats. Each player can also put a dog or rabbit into the sack instead of a cat, allowing players to bluff one another. At game end, all positive cats and mice count plus points, but negative cats count minus points.

Contents: 50 game cards, 4 mouse cards, 1 "cat in the sack" card, 1 start player marker, 76 mice money

The BEST and most FUN light bidding game ever designed!

Super fun with 4-5 players. Lots of hilarious moments, screw your neighbour, and dramatic finishes. Rules are completely fine as written.
A must buy if you like to laugh and have fun!

OK but rules need tweaking

A fun bidding, push your luck game, but in the end it is pretty random and some situations are not explained in the rules.
