If you’re familiar with Liar’s Dice, you already know how to play this game. And, full disclosure, I’ve played a lot of Liar’s Dice.
Strangely enough, when I lived in China, it was the default drinking game (which I realize is not the best way to begin a review of a kids game). But every bar had dozens of sets of dice, and almost everyone would play a few rounds at some point during the evening.
At its core, Liar’s Dice is a pure bluffing game. The strategy consists entirely of bluffing and knowing your opponent well enough to be successful. You Gotta Be Kitten Me! takes that premise, adds a layer or color matching on top, and then spruces everything up with adorable kittens.
It’s a win.
