Dogs is a family friendly board game about rescuing man’s best friend. Pick up strays, care for them and be a Hero!
In Dogs, each player owns an Animal Rescue Center with the desire to turn it into the best, most comfortable shelter for city and country dogs. Each game round is divided into three phases:
In Phase 1 players move their trucks through two different areas of the board, Country and City, collecting various stray dogs. Certain dogs will provide immediate financial rewards, while other lost and abandoned dogs of differing breeds will need medical care and food, yielding valuable points at the end of the game. Players will be competing for the same breeds, so tactics and strategy should be carefully considered.
In Phase 2 players select special cards and perform important actions in five different places: City Hall, the Warehouse, the Pet Shop, a Veterinary Clinic, and the Dog Fair. The number of players who can use each location in the round is limited, so choosing the right action is crucial to bringing about good results. In addition, there are three types of resources in the game (gas, food, and medicine) and it is essential to manage them successfully in order to avoid penalties.
In Phase 3 players feed the dogs in their kennels, pay the salaries of assistants, and organize the board for the next round.
Upon completion of a certain number of rounds, the kennel with the highest score wins the game!
Dogs has been previously published in Brazil (selling out 3 print runs) and is a complete game. This is an English language translation of that same game with some small enhancements to the layout and components as well as a revised two-player variant. The game, its art, and all the components are complete. The funds raised through this Kickstarter campaign will be going directly to printing costs.
Dogs has 9 days remaining and is already funded, with five stretch goals unlocked and a couple of more on tap. If you’re looking for a family friendly game about man’s best friend, this is one to check out!
