All about Family Jewels. A guide to Family Jewels, Mewtations… | by CryptoKitties | CryptoKitties

Family Jewels (aka “enhanced Cattributes”) was our recent update to CryptoKitties. It was a long time coming, but your Kitties finally have the Jewels to prove their royal bloodlines!

Jewels are rewarded to the first Kitties to discover Mewtations (new Cattributes), and those jewels may be inherited by their descendants. Here’s how they work.

The first Kitties that introduce a new Cattribute to their family tree are rewarded with a Mewtation Jewel. The type of jewel (diamond, gilded, amethyst, or lapis) depends on how early on the Kitty discovered the Mewtation.

After a Mewtation Jewel is awarded, all the Kitty’s descendants have the opportunity to claim it as a Cattribute jewel IF they share the same Cattribute as the jeweled kitty. Even if it disappears for several generations, the jewel may be reclaimed by any descendant who inherits or discovers the same Cattribute as its jeweled ancestor.

Here’s how a Kitty’s Cattribute jewels are determined: for each of its traits, your Kitty looks back through its entire family tree. If any of its ancestors had a jewel for that trait, your Kitty claims it too.

  • If your Kitty is descended from both a diamond bobtail AND a lapis bobtail, it will get the greater jewel (the diamond).
  • The first Kitty to discover a Mewtation gets a spinning pink diamond. Did you catch that? Spinning! Cats go wild for it.
  • The Founder Cats (Kitties #1–100) do not have jewels (nor does the jaguar cattribute). The Founder Cats do, however, have Founder Badges.

This is Roseheart (#507300). She’s descended from the first ‘ganado’ Kitty and the first ‘cottoncandy’ Kitty (and many other notable ancestors as well).

Neither of her parents have ‘norwegianforest’ genes (Roseheart discovered it herself) but because her great-uncle Harry Furball was a ‘norwegianforest’ pioneer, she still has a right to claim his amethyst next to her Cattribute.

We hope your Kitties are enjoying their jewels as much as we are, and we’re excited for more updates yet to come. If you want to collect more Family Jewels, you can always buy or Sire to the right Kitty!
