Operation: Cat Chat is a game about being quarantined in an apartment with no internet and only your cat for company. It is a game about loneliness, connection, and what goes on in your cat’s mind.

Desperate for companionship, you decide to do what no one has done yet: learn to speak Cat. There’s no time like the present. Besides, what else are you going to do?

To play Operation: Cat Chat, you will need one six-sided die, a standard deck of cards, ten tokens that your cat likes, a recording method, and most importantly, a cat that can tolerate you.

REVIEW: The strongest section of this game was probably the memories section, as detailed by the clubs section of the catpendium. I found myself journaling about a lot of topics that I otherwise wouldn't have been thinking about, and the game got real personal real quick. It made me rethink a lot of the relationships I had pre-quarantine and why I had them.

I think what I would have liked to see more from this game was weirdness. I thought there was a lot of potential for this game to turn into one of haunting magical realism, especially with the whole premise of what cats actually were. 

All in all, this was an entertaining way to spend the evening with my cat--who I discovered also really likes to play with dice. Thank you for this experience.
