About this project
DOGZ is a collection of 191 dog breed information cards and over 20 Games that can be played with the cards. Ages 7 to Adult 2 - 8 Payers (both depend on the game being played).
If you already have Game Nights or if you need something NEW to do with your friends and family - DOGZ is it!
Then, just when you think you have played all the games...go online - we've got more!
The unique cards play on both sides. Some of the games use the front side - some use the back. Some use the popularity number, some use the GROUP type, and some use the breed picture. Watch out for the MUTT (WILD) cards and the CAT cards! They can help and hurt!
There are word games, luck games, and strategy games!
Play Kennel! Play Top Dog! Play Paws-Word, Spot-ZEE, Doggies to Doggies, Pack, 3-Dog Night, or Buddies! Play them all!
Or, just sit back and learn a little more about the different breeds of dogs.
A copy of DOGZ in your home will be played and enjoyed for years to come!
What's in the box?
The FIRST attraction to DOGZ is the card design. Each dog breed card (191 of them!!!) has the name, picture, and a wealth of formatted information and game play attributes. Game play attributes are also found on the back of the cards. For dog resource information alone, the DOGZ collection of cards is well worth the price.
The SECOND attraction is the collection of GAMES that have been created to be played with these cards. They are FUN! Try out the game, KENNEL, where you are trying to play 3 or more cards that have the same GROUP category (Toy, Terrier, Herding, Working, Sporting, or Non-Sporting) AND either the same number or a sequence of numbers. Play these or play on cards that are already played, or even re-arrange the played cards so that you can play more of your cards!
Want a little faster on-the-edge-of-your-seat game? Give, WOOF a try! (Rules found online at: MissingPiecePress.com)
Guaranteed you will find MORE than one that you really enjoy. Hand it over to the kids - there are games for them, too! A party in a box and ALL themed with our favorite companions - DOGS!

Why Fund This?
1. Be the FIRST to get it!
The process of getting something new into stores or online is lengthy. Plus, it will take time for others to discover it. You will be among the FIRST to get it!
2. Be part of what this site is all about - KICKSTARTING a project.
Funds from Kickstarter backers will go directly to getting DOGZ in to production. We are confident with this product and have received strong support at each of our play test sessions - they can't wait to get a copy! But, if we do not reach our goal, we will not be able to move forward with it. Currently our money is tied up in other inventory. Getting the support and backing now will get this produced immediately after the campaign. All art work is ready. Warehousing is set. We just need the commitment, and the support from backers to get DOGZ into the hands of dog-lovers and onto shelves of retailers...THIS year!
3. It's a FUN collection of GAMES!
Over 20 games...in ONE box!?! And MORE online?!? Need we say more?
Author and game designer, Kevin J. Brougher, taught in public education for over 32 years. During that time he authored and created a number of books and games picking up numerous awards including Parents' Choice Gold, Games 100 and Tillywig Brain-Child Awards. (Yes, he did have summers off).
Now, retired from teaching, he has spent the last year designing the DOGZ cards and box and creating over 20 games that can be played with the cards.
"I am just so thrilled to be bringing DOGZ to Kickstarter. I have had a great time creating and play-testing each game in DOGZ and I believe the value factor and FUN factor are VERY GOOD. My hope and belief is that friends and families will enjoy DOGZ for years to come."
*This is NOT the image we will be using for the 4.5" x 11" postcard that will be included with your pledge. The one we will be sending you has lots DOGS on it.
Risks and challenges
There are always risks in a production run. Technical issues. Shipping issues etc. Fulfillment of a lot of individual orders could our biggest challenge. Sending cases out to retailers has been the usual model. Although we still plan on going this route, fulfilling the potential numerous individual rewards will be new to us. We have set our fulfillment/shipping date with a fair amount of cushion in preparation for this.
Our other risk is....we are REALLY going to upset a lot of CAT lovers....Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
