Squirmish is now on Kickstarter here. This is a series of posts designed to help you learn a bit about some of the cards before you play the game.
Squirmish card number 3 is Kittyclops.
She plays it cute and innocent with that darling, big orb in her head… but if she gets a six on her basic attack, her opponent gets cat scratch fever, and the player controlling her can peek at an opponent’s hand and discard one of their cards.
Any time Kittyclops is attacked, the player controlling her gets to draw a card. What are opponents thinking attacking this cute widdul kitty kat, anyhow? They are sick, I tell you.
Notice, the yellow border around the card… the alternate color indicates this is group card. Group cards have a different color border around them than most cards, which is the color of all the cards in that group. Her group is the Kitty Cat Club, the biggest group in the game. All members of the Kitty Cat Club have the same special ability (which is not true of all groups). A Kitty Kat Club member can never, ever attack another member of the Kitty Kat Club. It has always been in their club charter, which reads in section 26, line 8:
“It is hereby declared that no member of the Kitty Kat Club, be they big and fluffy, or short in hair and stature, shall ever attack any other member of the Kitty Kat Club, even if they really deserve it. For we cats must always and forever stick apart. Meow Meow Meow Mew-Meow! Kibbles and Catnip for all!”
