Shady Pets is a highly strategic card game that requires you to play in a most shady way as you strive to correctly guess the identity of the mystery pets. It’s a little like Clue, Uno and Exploding Kittens. You have to steal, take, show, sneak peek, expose, ambush, stop other players, grab and even throw an occasional octopus at an opponent on your way to victory. As players take turns, the game gets more intense because, just like you, everyone is getting closer to solving the mystery pets, yet who is going play the best game, collect the most points and win the game?

Play until all the Mystery Pets have been solved and there’s a winner …
