Cat in the Box: Deluxe Edition is the quintessential quantum trick-taking card game for 2 – 5 cool cats, where your card’s color isn’t defined until you play it! Hypothesize how many tricks you will win, and record your bid. Place tokens on the community research board as you play your hand, and connect large groups of tokens to score even more points. Plan your tricks carefully as you cannot claim the color of a card with the same number that has already been declared. Doing so would be pawsitively catastrophic as you have just created a paradox!

New Deluxe Edition features:

  • Support for 2-5 players
  • High quality geekbits-style plastic tokens
  • Recessed player boards
  • Recessed Center Research board
  • Score pad
  • A custom plastic insert to keep everything tidy!

If you think Ludwig was surprised to see how nice his castle looks, wait until you see all the cool stuff we’ve crammed into the Castles of Mad King Ludwig Collector’s Edition! The larder really is quite nice and after Rachel’s comment about the nice rug in The Hole, I’m feeling a little bad because that room is often used in “loo” of a proper restroom…

If you have a chance, check out what we’ve done to make the Collector’s Edition so luxuriously royal. It’s not just the artwork, which is both beautiful and functional, but there are few other things that I’m even more excited about! The first thing that you’ll notice upon opening the box is that everything is neatly and conveniently stored with GameTrayz™ storage organizers. There is a brand new recessed, double-sided scoreboard; upon it a gorgeous lake where your colorful swan player markers will keep score as they wind around plastic trays that hold room tiles, cards, and favors.

The first of two new expansions are Royal Decrees, a set of more than 30 new asymmetric, finely-balanced starting abilities drafted by players. The other expansion, Towers, has a new room size and shape, and a new completion reward that’s topped off by placing one of 8 custom painted plastic mini towers on the tile.

And if any game deserves an excessive, over-the-top optional ginormous sets of tiles, it’s this one, with an optional set of room tiles that are 4x the size of the original tiles, so you can enjoy the details (and hidden easter eggs) of the new artwork at a size fit for a king!

We’ve been working on this amazing edition of Castles of Mad King Ludwig for a long time, getting it just right, so that everyone can have the most amazing gaming experience while building a castle of their dreams, and we’re incredibly pumped to be able to finally share it with you!
