My kids and I love this game.
Easy enough to master, the basic elements of the game are just like Checkers, but the dice throw in enough element of chance to keep it anybody's game. If your kids like Chess or Checkers, they will like this game too! This game is fun for kids but it's also challenging enough to interest kids of all ages.
This may look like a children's checkers game with a gimmick, but closer inspection will reveal a surprisingly interesting strategy game that should appeal to all ages. The checkers on this beautiful thematic board are dog bowls, and the kings are dog bowls with bones in them. Each turn, you roll three dice and take three moves. The colors rolled determine which side's pieces are moved and how often--except that your opponent is forbidden to touch your hard-won king. The dice are sealed inside a transparent plastic doghouse, making them very difficult to misplace. Will you go for the risky moves, hoping to roll your color, and possibly bark up the wrong tree? The best-laid schemes of mice and men--and dogs--oft go astray.
