Reviewed for Second Grade, 2007

Rat-a-Tat Cat is a fun, fast-paced game that manages to be simple enough for a second grader to enjoy, while boasting enough versatility to keep parents engaged right along with the kids. This is a card game that relies on rudimentary strategy, basic math, memory skills, and a lot of luck. But, the addition of "power cards" that allow you to peek at what other players are holding, and the special "Rat Scanner" adds an irresistible level of silliness that will have the whole family fighting to shout "Rat-a-Tat Cat!"
