What is 9Lives?

9 Lives is a card game where you play as a cat! Since cats are known to have 9 lives, you will be having the same number of lives as well and these are represented by chips with cat faces.

The goal of the game is simple, to be the last cat standing. You may die, as you will find yourself dying... a lot, but don’t die too much. Learn more
