Dogs have been around for almost as long as humans have. In fact, being owned by a dog is possibly part of what makes us the most human. Well, that and playing games—especially games about dogs.
Happiness may be a warm puppy, but how is man’s best friend at the gaming table? Depending on the game, as in life, they might be competitive, confounding, or companionable.
Here are some canine-themed games to scratch that gaming itch behind your doggo’s ears.
A set collection game with 63 miniature dogs (in seven breeds!) to play with.
Play cards that both supply resources and select actions around a circular rondel to balance your training with the cards your opponent has just played.
A bidding/set collection game with players walking dogs to gain reputation (victory) points.
You’re in pre-historic times, hoping to domesticate dogs by building fire and cooking meat. Keep the fire burning, or become the dog’s meal yourself!
An expansion for Cheapass Games’ Kill Doctor Lucky that includes the doctor’s Scottish Terrier.
