Gossip

  • Word on the street is that there will be fancies released for each new region CryptoKitties is launching into this month. Ninjas for Japan, something for China / HK (maybe a Fortune Cat?), and something for South Korea (I hope it’s a K-Pop Kitty!).
  • Speaking of fancies, we know there’s a Golden Kitty fancy waiting to be discovered (probably needs gold eyes).
  • It’s also likely that there will be a Valentine’s Day fancy released before Feb. 14.
  • “Family jewels” (enhanced cattributes) are supposed to arrive this week. Hmm…where are they? Speculation is that they may have something do to with “first-of-their-kind” cats. The developers suggested that they might apply to you if you were “one of the first to discover a new cattribute these past few weeks”.
  • Now that the China launch is just around the corner, players are starting to pay attention to the Chinese numerology of Kitty #s. In particular, players are looking for kitties with several 8’s in a row. In Chinese, the word for 8 (ba) sounds very similar to the word for wealth (fa), so several 8’s together (8888) suggests that you may be very lucky and prosperous. To learn more about Chinese numerology, look HERE.
  • Something is going to happen when we hit 500,000 kitties. According to this tweet, Kitty #500000 may look something like this:kitty 500k

Happenings

  • The first Kitty Battle is happening now! The winner of the Kitty Battle contest will receive an exclusive Kitty411 Gold Medal, a free kitty, and a limited-edition kitty football helmet. For details (and to enter your kitty), visit the CONTEST page.

Gossip

  • CryptoKitties developers keeping dropping hints on Twitter about undiscovered fancies. Players are speculating that there might be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Fancy waiting to be discovered (see this tweet). Some players are convinced that “turtleback” would be a needed trait for a ninja (turtle?) kitty.
  • There’s also speculation that there’s an undiscovered fancy that uses “onyx” (see this tweet). (Either the same or different fancy as the turtleback one.)
  • Aaaaand also “henna“. (See tweet here.)

Happenings

  • The artwork for “onyx”, “pouty”, and “ganado” was changed. Onyx now has white whiskers instead of black, pouty now has less of a smile, and ganado’s side and chest diamonds no longer match the side and chest color, respectively. See the Original Artwork post for pictures and details.
  • The developers said that their Twitter polls give out hints about undiscovered Fancy Cats.
  • Mark Flavelle (co-founder) had an AMA on Token Daily.
  • CryptoKitties was nominated for a Golden Kitty Award from Product Hunt. The developers suggested that they will release a “golden kitty” fancy if they win the award. Go here to vote.
  • Family Jewels, or “enhanced cattributes”, are coming next week. I wonder what that means!

3rd Party Content

  • KittyCalc.co (breeding calculator with trait ratings) launched this week.
