It looks adorable, but is a deceptively challenging abstract strategy game.
We loved Boop. from Smirk and Dagger as the game pieces were wonderfully crafted (hey you Sir Squinty) and the game had more than enough strategy without being overwhelming. It can be a quick romp as you boop cats and kittens off the bed, or you can really dig in and take your time with your moves. We really enjoyed playing.
Looking for a holiday gift? Birthday Gift? Even the non-cat lovers will enjoy Boop. as it allows them to boop cats off the bed! Watch our review and gameplay video and then go pick it up if you are looking for a fun 2 player board game.
The adorably ‘thinky’ game for 2 clever cats.
Every time you place a kitten on the bed, it goes “boop.” Which is to say that it pushes every other kitten next to it on the board one space away. Line up three kittens in a row to graduate them into cats… and then, get three cats in a row to win.
But that isn’t easy with both you AND your opponent constantly “booping” kittens around. It’s like… herding cats!
Can you “boop” your cats into position to win? Or will you just get “booped” right off the bed?
Approachable but challenging abstract game and a worthy follow up to SHOBU.
Plays in 20 to 30 minutes.
Features a quilted, fabric board that lays over the back of the box, completing the minature bed playing surface. 8 wood kittens and cats per player – 32 adorable cat pieces in all!
