Can you keep a poker face, but notice when another player looks pleased? Sharpen your memory and your timing while you have fun with the cool cats and bad rats of Rat-a-Tat Cat.

How to Play:

Players are dealt four cards, which are kept face- down, except for a quick peek at two of them. Each player in turn pulls a card from the draw pile to replace one of the four. Memory is important, as the object is to end with the lowest score, and players must keep track of the values on their four cards. "Peek," "Swap," and "Draw Two" power cards turn up occasionally, allowing players to maneuver and strategize further.
