In Wizard Kittens, players take on the roles of kittens who have released curses in the restricted section of the library. The goal is to try to defeat all the curses before they get caught by Professor Whisper. Players collect ritual component cards such as familiars, potions, artifacts, and scrolls to fulfill recipes that get rid of the curses. If the players complete all the curses before the Professor Whisper card comes out of the deck, then the kitten with the most points wins. If Professor Whisper comes out before then, the player with the fewest ritual components and less than 10 points of curse cards wins.
The Magical Monster Expansion allows players to add a fifth player to the mix. It also includes new monsters that can eat curses. The core game is for two to four players, ages 7 and up, and plays in 15 to 30 minutes. It will retail for $20.00, and the expansion will have a MSRP of $15.00.
