You live in a House. You share this House with your pet Hoomin. The aim of Cantankerous Cats is to smother your Hoomin with Affection, then score points for manufacturing Mischief in your house. You must accomplish this while deftly deflecting the malicious machinations of other Cats in the neighborhood. The first Cat to score NINE Mischief Points is declared the winner!
The best way to learn Cantankerous Cats is to watch our tutorial videos in the Tips & Tricks section of the site. While the mechanics are simple in principle, there is a lot going on and learning through example tends to feel better for most new players.
We also have a PDF manual for you to browse if you are the book learning sort of Cat.
