As the Playful Pets games are still in production any order containing the box of 3 games or either the Feline Felonies or Canine Capers mint tin games will add an extra month to the delivery time, thank you for your patience.
All three games are quick to learn and the similarities between them make it easy to switch to the other games in the box without a lot more to take in. Their differences, both in theme and gameplay, make each game stand out as fun and unique from the others.
These games are hand crafted from my home office with only the printing and dice being outsourced. The game boards, boxes, inserts, resin playing pieces, etc are all put together by hand. As these games are hand crafted – and not lab tested – the age range on the box says 14+. Many of the games’ reviewers have put their suggested age range at 8+ and 10+.
In Feline Felonies you take charge of a neighbourhood cat whose goal is to be the greatest thief around. You’ll steal toys and other items cats believe to be toys from around the board as well as from other cats. Get the most highly valued toys home to win and be crowned most felonious of the felines.
You will steal from other cats, flaunt your spoils in front of cats to increase their value, and move quickly past dogs. Use Special Actions to flip toys to their more valuable side, move toys on the board and even take a cat nap to save points for later use.
2-4 players, 30-45 minutes & Competitive
In Canine Capers you play as a determined dog who is investigating their neighbourhood, sniffing out clues and to solve the imagined capers going on in their little country village. Work together to reach clues in time and secure them at Canine P.D. to earn points and solve the caper of the day.
You can give and take clues between dogs, and utilise the sly foxes on the board to help you retrieve more valuable clues that have been pilfered by sneaky cats. Use your Special Actions to jump to home, move clues on the board, enhance your clues, move diagonally and even send clues back to the resource pool in order to extend your playing time.
1-4 players, 30-45 minutes & Cooperative
In Animal Alliance the felines are doing their felonious best to steal those toys and the canines are returning toys to the lost and found. The twist is each player takes control of a cat and dog team who live in the same house, they have different goals but a combined score.
Each turn you will roll two dice and assign them to your cat and dog team, this way you can make the most of the best dog and cat skills for that round. You can increase toy values by displaying them on plinths, move quickly past picnics that you’ll be shooed away from, and give and take toys between your team of two to help in securing it faster, before another team can steal it away.
2-4 players, 40-60 minutes & Competitive

As standard this game comes with playing pieces in white, grey, orange and black. If you choose the ‘With Extra Colours’ option you will receive these 4, plus an extra 4 colours to play as. This does not increase the player count, it just gives you more choice when choosing your player colour.
In the interest of reducing plastic waste copies of Playful Pets will arrive in bubble wrap but without shrink wrap as standard, if you are intending to give a game as a gift or require shrink wrapped games for any other purpose you can opt in to shrink wrap at no additional cost by choosing the ‘With Shrink Wrap’ option when purchasing your game.
The colours of product images online may differ from the products you receive due to variations in electronic screen settings (computer/laptop/tablet/smartphones).
