Rat-a-tat Cat! Get rid of the rats and go for the cats! Win by having your cards add up to the lowest number (a poker face helps). Exchange a card on each turn, with Peek, Swap, and Draw Two cards adding an extra twist. Cagey thinkers of all ages will crow with delight over this game of strategy, memory, and a little luck.
Rat-a-tat Cat is my family's all-time favorite game -- and the youngest among us is sixteen! We've found it's become extremely addictive and wind up playing at least five rounds at a time (the most was twenty). Friends have joined in with us and are equally addicted. It always makes for a great time, lots of laughs, and some good-old competition.
At the same time, we were introduced this by a seven year old in our family, who is way better than any of us could be. It's great to play with all ages, as children can easily succeed. I would recommend this game to anyone -- whatever age -- it's great for family play.
I bought this game for a family we know with five kids 2-12. They all love it. Even the two-year-old 'plays' with help. They are also good at it, we babysat for them and the five-year-old regularly beat my wife and I. Really don't see how you can go wrong with this one especially for the price.
The kids went to bed, and the adults just kept on playing. It's fun! The mix of chance and strategy allows for legitimate 5 year old winners but keeps it interesting for adults. After a few games it gets progressively more difficult to remember which cards you have face down in front of you. But don't peek!
Rat-a-tat Cat is an enjoyable card game in which you gradually swap your four cards for lower-valued cards; the player with the lowest total at the end of the round. The game can be played by children who understand how to determine the lower number among cards valued from 0 to 9. Addition is necessary to compute the final scores, but a parent can help with that.
My only real complaint about the game is that there are a few 'special cards' which needlessly complicate the rules. The game would be just as much fun, and much simpler, without them. You may wish to omit them when playing with younger children.
