This game is a perfect intro game to new board gamers!! I love playing many board games and this is a great gateway game to show new players. Specially if they're dog people. I'm a cat person but this game is just so dang cute. 5/5 for me.
I bought this game due to solo play (plus, you know, it has dogs!). It is such a fun simple game to learn and the solo play is so easy and makes it so fun to play. The artistry is beautiful and I have highly enjoyed playing!
I acquired this game because we’re big dog fans in the family. The artwork and pieces are lovely (especially the adorable dog meeples). I’m playing it solo as well, as am impressed with the clever solo mechanics. A great little 25 minute game.
Dog Park - Standard Edition
After I play a game I often think about how many more times I’d like to play it which would lead to if I would ultimately trade or sell it. I also love games that I lose the first time I play. It means there is room for improvement which also leads to if and how many more times I would play it. I also think about accessibility to my elderly uncle and my 8 year old daughter. This game has hit on all the above points. My 8 year old has beat me as well as my uncle which again, means room for improvement. This game is well themed, although an abstract game at heart. If you love dogs, the theme simply adds to the aesthetics of the game. This game will hit my table for a very long time. It’s easy to set up and it’s easy to pickup again after not playing for a while. And the puzzle gameplay is so very satisfying. I own their first game Dog Park but I have to say…. This one would stay in my collection over that one if I had to choose because of the above reasons. What a delightful game. If you like dogs and you like puzzly point grabbing games this one is for you!
Plays quick and easy.
Easy to learn.
Pattern matching, card collecting.
Extremely adorable and fun. If the theme resonates with you, it’s an easy buy!
Easy to learn and play. The artwork is great. Materials are high quality. I was concerned it would be too much like Dog Park, which is also lots of fun, but it is completely different. We enjoy the puzzle aspect and love the theme.
Forever Home is an easy to learn quick pace family game, with fantastic art, high quality components and good strategy options. Absolutely worth to buy.
After enjoying Dog Park, I picked up Forever Home as a gift for my mother. We both really love it.
The artwork is beautiful, the game rules are very easy to learn and follow, and the game itself is just a plain joy to play. The set up is nice and easy as well.
Love this game.
Solid game with the easiest rules, that is perfect if you want to play some relaxing tile-laying pattern-building cuteness. Great to introduce new people to the hobby. It’s a keeper.
P.s. Only thing that disappointed me is the absence of Beagles:D
A really sweet idea, rehoming pups in need - beautifully illustrated. Very clear instructions so it's super easy to play right out the box, quick to set up and learn but challenging enough to keep everyone interested and wanting to play again.
The scoring mechanism means it's not clear who is in the lead until the end of the game is activated and you work through the different points each component gives you, which keeps it interesting and competitive right to the last.
An instant favourite in our house!
