Just like kittens clawing and wrestling for supremacy, Kitten Klash puts two players in a frenzied dash to grab the most matched cards from a constantly changing tableau. You need the attention of a tiger and the speed of a cheetah to win this lightning-fast real-time game.
In more detail, players continuously lay out cards in two rows of three opposing stacks, keeping an eye peeled for horizontal or vertical color matches. When you spot one, you reach out fast-fast-fast to grab both stacks, then go back to laying out cards until you spot the next match. When one player is out of cards, the round ends and players count up their points from the cards they grabbed: 1 point for each of your own cards and 2 points for each of your opponent's cards.
You can play a round of Kitten Klash in 30 seconds. Play three rounds to see who is the top kitten in your house!
Note: With two decks of Kitten Klash, four players can play as two side-by-side teams frantically seeking and grabbing card matches across six opposing stacks.
