Product Description

Rats are high, cats are low... low-down and cool, that is! Put on your poker face, then draw, swap, and sneak a peek to get rid of rats and make way for the cats. The player with the lowest score wins.

Rat-a-Tat Cat is a fun card game that requires quick counting skills and keen timing. It teaches math concepts, like greater than and less than. As they learn the strategy for the game, kids will also begin to develop an intuitive sense of probability.

Loved by generations of players

I was given this game for christmas when i was about 8 an instantly loved it. when my younger sister (5 years younger) started learning math she started to play with me and was instantly hooked. i babysat families in my neighbourhood for over a decade and have brought it along with me as. some kids even got disappointed if i forgot it. now i work with young children with special needs and i still use it as a wonderful fun tool to help kids learn basic math skills. its a game that has never disappointed and has served me greatly for years. i recommend it to everyone. kids dont even realise theyre learning.

Fun for all

We recently took a trip to the beach with extended family. My almost 5 and 7 year old nieces brought this game along with many others. Most of the other games were never opened as 4 generations were addicted to Rat-a-tat Cat! Easy enough for the young ones and challenging enough for the adults, this is one of our all time favorites. I'm going to buy one for my math pull out groups at school. They will love it and not even know that it is reinforcing math skills.

This game is a hit!
December 30, 2007

Easy to learn and very fun to play, this game is a winner in our household. We have played this game many times every day since receiving it and are recommending it to all of our friends young and old. Our whole family plays and our ages range from 5 - 70!
