Comments from the staff:

Isle of Cats satisfies two human desires:  picking that one card from a group like picking the super tall fast kid in a playground game, and filling in jigsaw puzzles.  Drafting cards by picking one that suits you best and passing them to the next player to feed off the scraps you left behind is a friendlier form of interaction, except for those times where you select a card only because your kid will get like 20 points if it comes around to them.  Watching your cards form a combo  that increase your points with little effort and filling up your ship full of sweet-but-not-over-the-top-adorable cats makes me understand that being a crazy cat lady seems pretty neat. -Derrek
