Quilts & Cats of Calico (which is basically the board game Calico from Flatout Games and AEG), which is a tile-laying game where you are trying to make the best quilts that will attract cats!
It’s a game I’ve never played so I can’t give a lot of information on the game play, but basically you have three “patch” tiles in your hand. You’ll place one on your board and draw another one.
You’re trying to create attractive colour combinations that will attract cats, let you sew buttons on to them, and score lots of points!
Anyway, here’s a couple of screen shots from the Monster Couch announcement.
The artwork does look amazing, which I assume is true of the actual game itself.
It has Beth Sobel artwork, so how could it not?
It does sound like it will be a bit more than a regular boardgame adaptation.
Cats will be wandering around the board, looking for a comfy place to lay.
The game plays 1-4 players and there will be online multiplayer. Hopefully asynchronous, but given that Wingspan has asynchronous and there’s no gameplay reason why Calico wouldn’t either, I can’t imagine there won’t be.
There will also be playing against AIs as well as a story mode.
You can even create your own cat!
Ok, hopefully it will go better than that one did.
You can put The Quilts & Cats of Calico on your Steam wishlist here. No word on pricing yet.
