Since Monopoly hit store shelves in 1935, it has been tweaked and reinvented countless times. From Pokemon to World War II, there is a variation for everyone. And now cat lovers can play a Monopoly-inspired game that's completely dedicated to all things feline.
Cat-Opoly, an unofficially licensed board game by Late for the Sky, takes the Monopoly formula and adds a lot more whiskers. Instead of properties and railroads, players can buy cat breeds; instead of going to jail, there's a water square; instead of a luxury tax, there's fleas. All the chance cards come with cat facts on the back, so the game is both enjoyable and educational. You can grab a board for your family game night on Amazon. Just remember cats can't hold game pieces—and they're terrible cheaters anyway.
