Catch the Furball

Catch the Furball is an icebreaker-like game for friends to play around a computer. It is partly based on Generica, which has received kind comments from players. What is different between the two? There are a couple of things, but to play Generica you need to make a board, and print out/cut up cards. You can play Catch the Furball from the web.

The source code is distributed here, for two purposes:

  • So that people can download the game and make it available from their websites.
  • So that people can use the game engine to customize Catch the Furball or create their own games in the same genre.

This distribution includes both the game, and the editor used to create its data. If you're not sure which version to download, I suggest the highest-numbered version marked 'stable'.
