AEG has now proven that they are an equal opportunity game publisher when it comes to pets (though we really need to see a Rat game soon).
Late last week, they announced a new game coming in 2022: Dog Lover. This announcement is so new that there’s not even a page on Boardgame Geek for it yet! (Watch, in between me writing this post and it going live, there will be one created).
Dog Lover is a card game designed by David Short (Cat Lady was a Josh Wood game).
Much like the cat game, Dog Lover will play in about 30 minutes, which makes it perfect for that in-between time at game day (or when you’re ramping up for the big game) or, even better for me, a lunch-time game at work.
In the game, you will be rescuing dogs from the shelter, train them to do tricks, collect bones and food for them, and basically take care of them.
Whoever takes care of them the best is the winner!
AEG sent me another unique picture to use as a spoiler .
Not sure how the “tricks” will work, but this does look really intriguing!
This just makes me even more interested in the game.
There’s not a lot of information to go on so far, but given the similarities to Cat Lover (including the amazing artwork!), I can see myself loving this game just as much.
Obviously, different designer, it will be a different game. But it seems similar enough to seriously believe that I’ll be getting this one when I can.
It looks like the game will retail for $29.99 US and will be coming out sometime in 2022.
Are you a fan of Cat Lady? If so, are you salivating for this one as well?
Who can resist cute dogs?
I know I can’t.
