Dodgy Dogs Card Game Celebrates Badly Behaved Canines

The Kickstarter’s latest card game is inspired by badly behaved doggos and it’s illustrated by Jean Jullien, a world-renowned visual artist.

This just in: not all dogs are good boys. Sure, we love them to bits and will fiercely defend them if someone dares to badmouth our pets, but the truth is, some pooches really do have some bad habits. My furry little angels, for example, turn into an ear-piercing demonic choir when the postman dares to deliver the mail. While it can be a bit embarrassing at times, I like to think that the mischievous side to dogs can be endearing as well, and it was wonderful to see that there’s a card game that celebrates precisely that: the undeniable charm of doggy dodginess.

Aptly named Dodgy Dogs, this card game is inspired by badly behaved pooches, beautifully captured in their mischief by the world-renowned Jean Jullien. While the popular visual artist managed to create a unique set of cards in collaboration with the Yolky Games studio, it’s not only the fantastic design that deserves the praise. The gameplay itself is incredibly fun and sounds like it would be a blast to play with a group of your pooch-loving friends.

Unlike in real life, where we cherish our pooches despite their little flaws, the goal of the card game is to get rid all of the dodgy dogs before other players. Some of the potential cards you can get include the peeing Pomeranian, the biting Shih Tzu, the chewing Bull Terrier, and much more. The card pack features small, medium, and large breeds caught in a number of mischievous behaviors, as well as special cards- such as Pick Up Puppies card or the Dog Whisperer.

The Dodgy Dogs card game is available through a Kickstarter campaign (that has been fully funded in under 6 hours!) and there are various perks available for its backers. Not only that you can be one of the first pet parents to get their hands on this fun game, but you can get a set of cards that feature your own four-legged bandit as a Dodgy Dog card or snatch a fab tote bag or a signed print. Dodginess galore!
