About the Game

This game is inspired by the story "Space Cat" that was part of the story "Garfield: His 9 Lives." The story came out as a TV special and as a book. Both stories were similar but not exactly the same. The jist of the story was that Garfield, an explorer in space, came across the The Incredibly Huge Galactic War Fleet (aka the IHGWF) and was given an ultimatum. Garfield had to think fast and find ways to survive the insurmountable odds. This game gives you an opportunity to play as Garfield and try to defeat the IHGWF.

All quoted text comes from the Garfield television special.

Special Rules

Deck and Cards

Each person has their own copy of this deck and only use their deck in play. Only one copy of each Thing can be controlled by any player at any time.

Triangles

Each player starts the game with 9 Triangles. If you lose all your Triangles, you can no longer score points or play Things. All of your Things are destroyed. However you may continue drawing and playing Actions until play is stopped or everyone has lost their Triangles.

Crisis Factors

Crisis Factors remove your Triangles. The number determines how many Triangles you lose. For example, Crisis Factor 1.0 removes one of your Triangles.

Point System

This game is played by points. All cards have a point value recieved by the card's TARGET when initially played. For example, if you play a card on your opponent worth 500 points, your opponent receives 500 points, while you receive none. Things have a second point value recieved at the start of its controller's turn (every turn).

Survival Items

Depending on how many Survival Items you conrol, you get this amount of points each turn:
1 - 100 points
2 - 300 points
3 - 600 points
4 - 1000 points

Winning the Game

Winning is determined ENTIRELY by points. Even if you play a card that stops the game, it is not a guaranteed win. You only win if you have the most points once everyone loses their triangles or after the stopped gameplay tally.

Stopped Gameplay

If play is stopped by a player, before scoring, all OTHER players recieve 1000 points for each of their remaining Triangles. The player that stopped the gameplay recieves points for their Triangles based on the card they played.
