Dogs In The Yard is a tile laying game for 2 to 6 players. It's a game of both chance and strategy, where you and your opponents take turns drawing tiles to build fences and claim dogs that come up. But be careful, if your yard is completed before your dogs have food and water, you won't get points for them.
Accessible theme for all ages and new gamers
