Welcome back to the Isle of Cats!
Everything is on fire and you probably don’t want to stick around for too long?

Race to the Raft is the cooperative sequel to the highest rated cat themed board game of all time, The Isle of Cats.

In the game, you play the role of the disorientated island cats who are lost on the smoke-filled island. Nothing seems to be where it once was, and you must find a safe route to the raft by placing pathway cards.

As you build pathways, fire — which is represented by different shaped tiles — will spread across the island, limiting your options. You need to find the balance between creating long pathways and keeping the cats ahead of the flames as you move towards the raft.

The game includes 81 scenarios from which to choose, including a simple tutorial that gradually introduces you to new rules and an advanced tutorial for when you’re ready for a far greater challenge.

It took a while but after the adventures of Rachel and Heinze during part 1, part 2, and part 3, they finally managed to get all those cats off their boat!

It is just a shame they are now going to have to go back and do it all again…

The Isle of Cats has returned to Kickstarter with 3 new expansions introducing cute fluffy kittens, ancient beasts desperately in need of friends, and crazy events that will require you to plan out your rescue in a completely different way.

There are also new boats and many other things that you can discover on the Kickstarter page. But, more importantly than that…

If you were to visit a fantasy island full of ancient creatures, which animal would you hope to see?

Did you miss The Isle of Cats, part 1 or part 2?

While Rachel and Heinze try to figure out how they are going to get the cats off their boat, it is time for me to say goodbye.

Remember to cuddle your Hissnippers, be careful when approaching a Mhoxxite, and in dark rooms always keep your eyes open for a Crystal Garmin!

I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has joined us over the past 3 weeks, and until next time, keep on adventuring!

Did you miss The Isle of Cats, part 1?

I have a feeling Rachel and Heinze are going to regret putting all those cats on their boat, but we’ll find out soon.

Hi there, I’m Frank West, and last week I gave a little introduction to myself and The Isle of Cats. This week I’d love to hear from you and find out which of the six breeds of cat you like the best.

You did see the sixth one, right?

Rachel and Heinze have done a tremendous job bringing out the personalities of each of the cats from The Isle of Cats and I couldn’t be happier. I hope you are enjoying this adventure and I can’t wait to share the final part with you next week!


With Rachel and Heinze sailing towards The Isle of Cats I can only wonder, are they prepared for what is ahead?

We’ll find out next week! [click here to read part 2]

Hi there, I’m Frank West, and I like to design and publish games set within The City of Kings universe, a world full of stories which I have been building for the past few years. The Isle of Cats is the next part in my big adventure, and I would love to invite you to check it out. But be warned! These cats have claws…

While there are many cats, the game offers a much bigger experience than many other cat themed games, and is designed for gamers. Over 90 minutes, you will find yourself challenged and having to make many tough decisions as you manage resources, and balance personal objectives with rescuing cats.

Have you ever tried to rescue a cat? No matter how much they need saving, they aren’t going to make it easy for you!

Don’t worry though, if you prefer easier games, there is a full family mode cutting the rulebook down from 20 pages to 2, making the game accessible for everyone, and a custom designed solo mode for those who would prefer to stay at home and play with their cats.

Next week we shall discover whether our heroes make it safely to the island, until then I hope you enjoyed the comic and that they don’t get seasick!
