Catch the Furball

Catch the Furball is an icebreaker board game intended for friends to play around a computer. It features a freshly-generated board for each game, an eclectic collection of cards, and beautiful pictures of Cambridge University. The distribution is intended both to allow Web masters to quickly set up their own copy of the game, and to allow tinkerers to use the game engine to make their own games. It includes the editor used to create game data.
