This week for Family Game Night we played a really fun game from Spin Master called Soggy Doggy. Get ready for some soaking wet fun this one. Take your chances and see if you can escape the shaking doggy who will spray you with drops of water as he shakes off the water from his bath. It’s full of fun and laughs. We also tried out a new snack from FunkyChunky. They sent us some gourmet popcorn to try out, yum!
Soggy Doggy from Spin Master is a really fun game that’s all about avoiding the shaking wet dog. Work your way around the board bathing the dog or turning the dial to see if this will be the turn that he starts to shake and soaks everyone in his path. It’s fun, fast-paced, and full of shaking doggy laughs. It’s a great game night game that will have everyone in the family sharing laughs as you dry off.

Who Would Enjoy This Game:
This game is designed for ages 4 and up and 2-4 players. We enjoyed it and had a really good time playing it. My 8-year-old was super excited about it and just couldn’t wait to play it. My teenager and the adults had fun with it too. We shared a lot of laughs as we cringed to turn the dial to see if we set off the doggy shaking. So it’s a great game for a wide range of ages from little kids to adults.
Is It Fun:
Yes, it is a lot of fun to play. I think our favorite part is when the dog would start to shake and get everyone wet. My 8-year-old wanted it to be a lot more water but after you play for awhile the dog gets wetter so more water goes flying everywhere. We really enjoyed the ease of the game and surprise of when the dog would start shaking, it leads to a lot of laughs.
The gameplay is very easy, so it’s great for younger kids. To get started the first time you play you will need to install 3 AA batteries into the bath tub game piece. Also, you will need to build the dog mechanism. It’s really easy just follow the directions in the instructions. Finally, add some water to the tub to get started. Place the dog in the center of the game board and put the game board in the middle of the playing area. Each player will choose a piece and put it on the start space. Leave the chips close by for easy access as well as the die.
On your turn, you will roll the die. If it lands on the ? then roll again. If you roll the paw print then you will move to the space in front of the player who is furthest on the game board and follow the directions. If you roll a color then you will move your piece to the next available space of that color and follow the directions. There are two kinds of spaces on the board. The bone means you spin the faucet on the right, sometimes this will set off the doggy to shake. The paw print requires you to push the faucet on the left which will pour water onto the doggy. You will do these actions either once or twice determined by the number on the space you land on.
If you make the dog shake you must go back to the start space. When you go back to start collect your white token that matches your game piece. Next time you make the dog shake you can turn in the white token and avoid having to start over. The first person to make it around the board and back to the start space wins.
I don’t really have any concerns. If you don’t like messes then this might not be the game for you. I put down a towel so that it would soak up any water that spilled. It really was not that bad though. If you don’t mind water getting everywhere then no concerns at all. We had fun with it and the kids loved it.
