Dog parents, get ready for a treat because there's a new game in town called Dog-opoly! It's a creative take on the classic game of Monopoly. Thanks to specialty board game company Late for the Sky, dog lovers can now have fun playing this board game that requires you to rack up different breeds of our furry friends instead of luxury properties. In addition to spending your fortune on your favorite breeds of canine, you can now learn some fun facts about them along the way.
If you're concerned about the time-consuming process of understanding how the game works, there's nothing to worry about. The rules of the game are quite similar to the classic version. Players race across the board to collect their desired breed of pooches. The value of the purchased four-legged pals correlates to the respective breeds and sizes, a creative way of ranking them just like the properties are in the original board game. Keeping the theme of dogs in mind, the creators have replaced the Go to Jail space with Go to Kennel. Even houses and hostels, which are used to develop their properties are substituted with dog houses and big bones.
Coming up with a dog-themed alternative to the classic game of monopoly, Late for the Sky, has designed Dog-opoly, granting all dog lovers an opportunity to indulge in something we love. But that's not all. They have outdone themselves by redefining the playing pieces into dog-related items such as a dog bowl, a mailman, and a fire hydrant. Players collect $200 every time they pass Go Fetch. They can give up that money to catch fleas. This attention to detail is definitely worth giving this game a whirl.
