Clowderful is a 500+ word tabletop roleplaying game in which you play as a community of neighborhood cats. Draw a map of a neighborhood and then get the humans to warm up to you—or get them to move away.

This game was originally commissioned by Kabocha as part of a fundraiser to trap, neuter, and return a colony of cats in my neighborhood. Clowderful is free; 100% of donations will go to caring for local cats, shelters, and rescue programs.

Really sweet and fun. You can make of it what you want; the base game itself is very sparse, but it creates enough of a framework for you to fill with your own tales and fluffy friends without feeling too adrift. I played with some players who've never played together before and it was a great way for everyone to contribute, take part, and tell some tales about some rambunctious kitties. We had cats going paddling in the oceans, cats being adopted by the local fishermen, a showdown in a graveyard, and an epic rivalry between the forest and village cats.  I highly recommend!


This looks so adorable. Cats simulator haha. Thank you so much for making this available to all of us  Whimsy Machine team!


Clowderful is a oneshot ttrpg about a community of cats teaching kittens about their neighborhood.

The PDF is 8 pages, with a simple, readable layout and some adorable illustrations.

To play, the group generates a map of nearby households, as well as their attitudes towards cats. Dice and cards are both used, with the dice determining where households are and how much they like cats, and the cards being used to slowly increase or decrease the values on the dice. 

There isn't really a goal here beyond the storytelling---and maybe making the neighborhood slightly nicer for cats to live in. The game ends when the card deck runs out, but there isn't a win or loss condition. You win if you have a good time.

Overall, if you want a cozy, small-scope community building storytelling game in the same sort of style as The Quiet Year, Clowderful is a great cat-themed pick.


"Cats are not patient or organized, so you won’t play in turns." Just... fantastic. Would love to gather some pals to make a neighborhood full of rascal kitties!

I'd love to hear about it if you do! It'd be fun to see those cat maps.


Already looks lovely! Can't wait to play this with my cat loving bud uwu
