NEW FOR EVERYONE : THE CAT

We've been working very hard to perfect the game of Dodgy Dogs - and decided that we need one more Special Card ... so we are very pleased to announce the arrival of "The Cat" - which has been introduced in all packs, both single and twin, to create chaos and mayhem amongst our furry friends.

Beware of The Cat!

Woof.

What is Dodgy Dogs?

The Dodgy Dogs Packs
The Dodgy Dogs Packs

Dodgy Dogs is a beautifully designed card game all about badly behaved dogs, illustrated by visual artist Jean Jullien. Use strategy and luck to get rid of all of your Dodgy Dogs as quickly as possible. Because who wants a hand full of Dodgy Dogs, right? It's easy to play and suitable for people of all ages. We’d love you to support us in making the game so you can have as much fun playing it as we have!

  • How to play? 

    It's super simple. At the start of the game, you are dealt a hand of Dodgy Dogs. They'll be one of four different sizes and they'll be performing one of ten different bad behaviours.

    Your aim is to get rid of all your Dodgy Dogs. The first player places one of their dogs down on the table. The player to their left must then match either the size, or the behaviour of that dog, and place theirs on top. If they can’t, they have to pick up cards from the stock pile until they can place one down. And so it goes.

    Of course, there are some special cards too, that spice things up a little bit. There’s the Dog Whisperer. He allows you to choose any Dodgy Dog behaviour your like, as long as you whisper. The Wild Card makes the dogs go... well, wild. And everybody has to swap all their cards with the player next to them. There are pick up cards. And all sorts of others too.

     And then there's the Leader of the Pack

    Leader of The Pack - Your chance to get your dog in the game.

    We also have a special card called Leader of the Pack, and we're offering a chance to have your dog be that Leader, look at the reward section for more information!

    Dodgy Dogs consists of 55 cards printed on Superluxe, poker-sized cards (the really nice ones). They’re all printed and made in Belgium. The cards are:

    • 10 cards with a small Dodgy Dog behaving badly
    • 10 cards with a medium Dodgy Dog behaving badly
    • 10 cards with a large Dodgy Dog behaving badly
    • 10 cards with a massive Dodgy Dog behaving badly
    • 15 special Dodgy Dogs cards (4 x Dog Whisperer, 3 x Wild Cards, 4 x Leaders of the Pack, 4 x Puppy Pick-Up)

    One deck is about right for 2-5 players. For over 5 players use two Dodgy Dogs decks shuffled together.

    Who's behind it? 

    Dodgy Dogs is a collaboration between Jean Jullien and Yolky Games. Jean is a world-famous illustrator and dog-lover who lives and works in London. 

    Yolky Games is a London-based creative company inspired by contemporary design who create, make and sell card games. We are all, like Jean, massive dog-lovers. Together, we’ve been having a great time working on creating a game that’s not only super-fun to play, but also beautiful to look at. 

Making and playing the game

We've been working on Dodgy Dogs since early 2017. Since then, many afternoons since have been spent drinking tea, testing versions of the game and generally talking about how brilliant dogs are. We’ve tried loads of different versions of the game, with lots of different dogs, doing lots of different things, not all of which we could publish in the family friendly edition. Here's one of our early prototypes:

Why Dodgy Dogs and why Kickstarter? 

We love card games and we love dogs (if that wasn’t already clear). Our favourite type of dogs are the dodgy ones. Those who chew your shoes, jump on furniture, roll in the mud... We believe that mischievous dogs have a bit more personality so they’re the stars of the game. They are our beloved Dodgy Dogs. 

Launching Dodgy Dogs via Kickstarter will not only allow us to manufacture the game at the quality and quantity we need but this is also the best way to reach out to you, the people we hope will actually play the game. We can't wait to send those Dodgy Dogs your way!

Timeline 

We have our Belgium manufacturer lined up and we’ll begin printing the cards as soon as we’re funded. The cards will be printed on Superluxe, poker-sized cards. If you don’t speak card, that basically just means the best quality cards possible. Here is an expected timeline from now until you get Dodgy Dogs in your letter box.

• June/July: Crowdfunding
• August: Production
• September: Delivery of cards to our offices
• October: Shipping over to you!

Thank you
