Pug Time is a quick, casual card game for 2-4 players of all ages. Players take on the role of pug owners, helping their special pug navigate the crazy world by teaching them tricks, giving them treats, going on adventures, and, of course, avoiding terrible disasters. Players win once their pug has reached ultimate pug happiness by earning enough points in the three areas of pug happiness - eating, sleeping, and playing.
Learn to play Pug Time in just five easy steps - check out the GIFs below to understand exactly what you need to do to play the game!
These GIFs explain the basics of playing the game, but there's plenty more you can learn by reviewing the rule book. Learn more about the pugs, the different card types, and the game rules by clicking the rule book!

This was part of Unfiltered Gamer's Wednesday night Live Stream, where they spent about 30 minutes playing a 4 player game of Pug Time!
In every copy of the game backers will receive:
- 46 cards of six different types
- 8 pug cards
- 4 reference cards
- 54 tokens (18 for each area)
- One rule book
Check out the images below to see the different cards and other items you'll receive in the game!
Of course, the items included above are only part of the base game. For those that pledge a higher tier, we've detailed exactly what you get below.
An Autograph from Peach:
The second tier option includes a copy of a pawprint from the inspiration behind the game: Peach! She was kind enough to work with us and leave a nice looking pawprint that we could copy and include with the game at this level.
The Peach Pug Pug Card:
The third tier, or "deluxe" option, includes not only the autograph from Peach but also a special custom art drawing of her with her own unique ability! This will only be available during this campaign. After it ends, the card will never again be produced.
Custom Art of your Dog:
In the fourth tier you not only get the autograph from Peach, you also get to replace the Peach Pug illustration with a picture of your favorite furry friend! You might notice that the Peach Pug ability mimics other cards; this is integral because Peach, like many other dogs out there, isn't just any one of these pug personalities - she's all of them. If you feel like your dog has what it takes to handle all of the wonderful puggy personalities, then you'll definitely want to hop into this tier.
Custom Art of a Toy/Food/Bed:
This is our fifth and final tier to pledge into. The special part of this reward is that every game of Pug Time that will ever be created will include your dog's favorite item (replacing an item currently on a basic card), immortalizing that item in history. Let's be real, who doesn't think your dog is the best dog on the planet? This is a perfect opportunity to pay an extra special tribute to your furry friend and have their memory be a part of this game forever.
Custom Art Addendum:
You'll be contacted after you pledge to personalize your art tier by sending us the picture you would like to have customized. While we and our artists are happy to work with you, some things may not be feasible. We'll keep you as informed as possible such that if the picture is not going to work out, you'll be able to pivot to an alternate option or select a different reward tier.
If you'd like to get custom art for a non-dog, please reach out! Although we can only guarantee dog art for right now, we should be able to contact our artist and see if they'd be willing to do other animals you love!
If you would like to purchase extra copies of the game, please add $16 to any pledge level. If you would like to purchase additional deluxe versions, add $26 to any pledge level. After the game has funded, you will have the opportunity to also add extra copies of the game through access to a pledge manager.

Risks and challenges
Every Kickstarter is not without risk. As much as I'd love to guarantee nothing will go wrong, as a first time creator I can't make any promises. However, I can promise that I've researched as much as possible over the past eight months and the process should be as smooth as possible. I've partnered with industry veterans to take care of manufacturing, shipping and fulfillment, all costs have been accounted for and recorded, and a timeline has been established. In the event something does go wrong, I can promise to be as up front and communicative as possible with all of my backers. All of this is to say not everything can be accounted for, but rest assured rewards will get to backers no matter what.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
