Welcome hundreds of dogs to your game night!

Forever Home

Welcome to Forever Home, the puzzly pattern-building game about second chances for shelter dogs.

Using a combination of tile placement, set collection, and drafting, you and your friends take on the role of shelter workers. Take it in turns to bring dogs into your shelter, complete training cards, and match pups up with new families. You’ll be competing for valuable shelter commendations - as well as gaining reputation for training and rehoming the dogs in your care. At the end of the game, the shelter worker with the most reputation wins! 

Featuring quick and simple turns; a unique solo mode; and a second advanced side to the player board, Forever Home is a replayable, easy-to-love abstract game.

Every purchase supports shelter dogs

Great game for shelter volunteer!

This was a Christmas gift for a friend who is a gamer and volunteers at an animal shelter. We've only played it once but it was easy to figure out the game play and we had lots of fun with it. Quality product and consruction.


Fun game.
Involves Pattern building
Card drafting and
Resource Drafting.
Plus the theme is getting dogs to their Forever Homes.

It’s very quick and easy to learn to play and play.

Great Solo or Together

I originally was draw to the game because of the greyhounds in it and quickly realized that it was just my type of game. I played the solo mode first and found it simple to play but enjoyable. Then, I did a few games with other people and found it to be just as fun. The fun of trying to get the right balance of dogs and cards is entertaining. Nice, relaxing game that will certainly be one I pull out often and not just for the sweet dogs!

Somehow better than Dog Park!!

I adore this game, it is quickly becoming one of my favorite entry level board games. I could easily teach this game to any of my friends, while also being crunchy enough to keep my more experienced friends engaged. Birdwood Games is absolutely killing it with these 2 games so far and I am excited to see what is next!

A very cute game, even better than dog park!!

While my wife and I adore Dog Park, we enjoyed Forever Home even more. I feel that the gameplay mechanics are a bit more chewy while also somehow being even easier to learn. I can teach any of my friends to play this game without any needed experience. At this point we will be getting any game that Birdwood comes out with :)
