November 20, 2015 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AUSTIN, Texas (November 20, 2015) – This fast-paced card game features adorable art taken directly from animator and illustrator Simon Tofield's YouTube series Simon's Cat, which has over 680 million views.
Impulse-priced Simon's Cat is a lighthearted (and downright silly) romp for 3 to 6 players. Some lucky retailers were treated to a sneak preview at the recent Steve Jackson Games Open House, prompting much laughter amid requests to pre-order!
Go around the table playing cards to escape Simon's attention. Get caught and you get Blame. Get too much Blame and you get fed last. No one wants that.
When asked about Simon's Cat Card Game, co-designers Randy Scheunemann and Sam Mitschke pointed at one another and said, "It's his fault."
