Price: $12.00

Herding Cats is a fun card game for school aged children. The goal is for different colored Cowdogs (yes, like Cowboys) to "herd" three cats of a matching color. There are twists to the game. For example, stampede cards can be used to gather up herds to help a player win the game and the "wild cat lady" card can be used as a wild card in lieu of a cat card. The game is similar to Uno and is easy for young players to learn.

Our testers really liked this game. They play it two to three times a week, and it is the first game they request during our family game nights. The rules are easy to learn and follow. This is a fun wholesome game that I would recommend to others.
