This week on family game night we are playing a really fun cooperative game from Peaceable Kingdom called Lucky Dogs. It’s a really fun dice game that helps to promote working together to reach an objective and goal. For our snack we tried out Shred Pop which was really yummy. We tried out four of their flavors and loved each one of them.
Lucky Dogs by Peaceable Kingdom is a fun dice game that is designed to teach problem solving, strategy and working together in a cooperative goal. It’s a lot of fun for all ages and the entire family. It’s fast paced and keeps your entertained while your work together to fill up dog bones with dice and spell out the phrase Lucky Dogs.
In the box your will find:
12 Dog Bone game pieces
1 Dog house game piece
Who Would Enjoy This Game:
Lucky Dogs is designed for ages 5 and up. We all had fun playing it. With a large age difference between our kiddos it’s hard to find games we all enjoy but this was a fun one that we all found to have the right amount of difficulty but easy enough for my youngest (8) to also enjoy. Designed for 2-4 players. It seemed to be more fun the more players you had but could also be enjoyed with just two if you have a smaller group.
Is It Fun:
We had a lot of fun playing Lucky Dogs. We are big fans of dice games so we found it to be a lot of fun. You never know what you will get when you roll the dice so it leaves a lot up to luck and chance. It’s fun working together to spell out Lucky Dogs and using some strategy to place the most dice possible. I love seeing my kids work together without arguing so any cooperative games that teach these skills gets and A+ in my book. We shared a lot of laughs while playing. If you enjoy dice games this would be perfect for you.
Game play is pretty easy for this one. Start out by setting up the playing area. You will put the dog house in the middle of the table and then mix up the dog bones and put them in four stacks of three (two on each side of the dog house dice side up). Divide up the dice evenly among the players.
Take turns rolling the dice and placing them onto the bones. On your turn you will roll up to six dice. If you have any multiples they can not be played so set them aside. With what you have left you place them on the dice. You can only place one die on each bone during your play. In the example above the right side set of dice. We would only be able to play the 1 and the four. So you could place the 1 on the first, second, or third bone and the 4 on the third or fourth bone. You could not place both the 1 and the 4 on the third bone though. If you roll and you have all multiples or you can not find a match on the bones then you place one die in the dog house and your turn ends.
Once you have filled up a bone follow the directions on the bone. It will either say that you lose 1 die (put one in the dog house) or you gain 1 die (take one out of the dog house). The rest of the die on the bone get distributed to the players evenly. Turn over the bone to reveal the letter. You are trying to spell out Lucky Dogs.
The game ends when you either have all players run out of die before you spell Lucky Dogs (you lose) or you spell out the words Lucky Dogs (you win).
No concerns with this one. It’s fun, educational, cooperative and is enjoyed by a variety of ages and skill levels. As a mom it’s the perfect family fun game.
