Me-ow! Wow, We're So Glad You're Here.

Welcome to Pudgy Cat Games, the game company founded with the “help” of a cat. I'm Jacqueline Atkins, the proud founder of Pudgy Cat Games and the lovely feline above is Leyla, my trusty design partner and the original Pudgy Cat. My company is named for her, in honor of her contributions to board game design including being the official box tester, whacker of pieces off the table, and chewer of cards. She is pretty much there every step of the way, while I work to design, play and review games. Leyla does reviews of all of the games I design. This is known as the Pudgy Cat Review, and will include highlights of the game from a cat’s perspective.

Pudgy Cat Games focuses on creating light to medium weight family friendly games, with an emphasis on looking great on the table!  

Pudgy Cat Game also does the Pawsitively Purrfect Game Review, where we review games and write nice things about them. Our reviews will be solely focused on the positive parts of a game, as we believe every game has something good in it. If your lucky, Leyla might even decide to grant it an official Pudgy Cat Review too! While we know, some people may want to know what is broken in a game or what could be done differently, there are many places to find reviews with this information out there.  We want to share what we think you will love about each game.  Our focus is to spread positivity around game design and to support fellow designers in their efforts to create amazing new games.  Interested in having your game reviewed for some positive feedback? Send an email to Jacqueline (and Leyla) at
