Lindo y fácil de jugar. Me gusta la dificultad estratégica y la duración de las partidas. Nunca te aburre.
Only played on BGA, fun card drafting polyomino game. The art was really a hit for me. Polyamino games have been quite popular and what makes this game unique is the crazy shapes and the card drafting.
I was lucky enough to playtest this. It's a beautiful game artwork wise, with an interesting mechanic. If you like Patchwork or the Cottage Garden series, but enjoy a bit more meat to your strategy games, you will love The Isle of Cats. It's Polyominos, but for gamers. The rule book was easy to understand, and there didn't feel like there was an issue with a runaway leader, or anyone being left behind. The Lesson Cards have well balanced variations to how each player scored. Plus, it contains cats as part of the theme, which is always a bonus.
