Product Description

We must help get the little Creatures safely home before Max, the Tomcat, catches them. In an exciting way, children learn logic, consultation & decision making. An important issue to discuss is also raised: we don't like Max catching those Little Ones, yet we recognize that he is a natural hunter. How do we resolve this in our minds & hearts? Let's talk it over.

An Absolute Favorite
November 08, 2015

My grandchildren LOVE this game and so do I!! It's a cooperative game so we work together to save the little critters from Max the cat. Max is the opponent, so they focus on beating Max instead of each other which is a big plus when playing with kids ages 4 to 9. They all love it and ask to play Max when they come to Nana's house. :)

Fun family game that bridges the age gap well.

Can't find a game your 8-year old can play with her 4-year old sister? Try Max. My girls love it and play it frequently. They also like Caves and Claws and the Secret Door by the same company (Family Pastimes). In fact, I just ordered two more Family Pastimes games for an upcoming birthday present. They make for a nice evening activity before story time.

An activity, not really a game.

I wanted to like this game, and reading the reviews of others, you expect it to be half decent. But instead, what you have here is more of an activity; there's practically no decisions to make and they have little bearing on the outcome. (Still, compared to Chutes & Ladders which is not a game at all (no decisions), it's a very small step up.)

Age level: 2/5 to 4.5 yrs old: I think it's kind of insulting that any kid over the age of 5 would play this "game". My son was done after playing it 3 times.
