FAQ

Got questions? We’ve got answers. If you have any other questions,
feel free to send us an email at support@adogslifegame.com

How will you use the money raised through the Kickstarter campaign?

The money we raise will be used to bring the project to life. Thanks to the money you contribute we will be able to work with designers and artists to make the game spectacular and of course to pay the manufacturers who will transform these ideas and designs into a physical game. A part of the budget will be used to provide full customer service to each of you and to make sure your game is delivered safely and on time - because you are just as important to this project as anything else.

When will I get my game and all the rewards?

You can be sure we will ship all the games and other rewards to you before Christmas of 2017. You will be able to spend your holidays playing A Dog’s Life with your family and friends. Really… Every single day.

How old do my kids have to be to understand the game?

Even a child as young as 6 years old will be able to understand the game. He will also learn a lot about dogs, their behaviour and about the relationship between dogs and humans. A Dog’s Life is about spending time with your family, enjoying the beautiful images and dog figures and learning about your favorite pets. The more you play the more they will learn about the game strategy as well.

Will I be able to buy the game in my language as well?

Yes, apart from the english version we are also working on spanish, german, french and japanese versions. More languages will come soon afterwards.

We are BETON GAMES, a board game publisher and distributor. Our current publishing project is the renewed edition of the board game A Dog’s Life.

A Dog’s Life is an amazing game by the legendary designer Christophe Boelinger from France. His most famous bestsellers include Archipelago, Dungeon Twister, Draco Mundis. A Dog’s Life is unique both board-game-wise and dog-wise. There is no other board game on the market that lets the players become a dog. It was first published in 2001 by Jeux Descartes in English, German and French. It has completely sold out 3 times.

In 2014, 13 years later, we started to work on publishing a second, completely redesigned, edition of A Dog’s Life, which contains beautifully colored dog miniatures.

We started to work on the renewed version with Chris by revising the rules and increasing the game-pace.

The next step was design. We started working on new game graphics. At the end, we were not happy with it. We chose to sacrifice a lot of work and time and sign on Marek Píza, the artist behind the board game Mafia. As you can see yourself, his art takes A Dog's Life to a whole new level.

One of our greatest challenges were the dog miniatures. We wanted to make them as realistic as possible and therefore turned to Erick Sosa and David Pereira Ezcurra, renowned miniature sculptors who have work with companies like Hasbro and Gentle Giant on projects that include licenses from Star Wars, Marvel and DC.

For the next step, we started looking for the perfect manufacturer that could offer the top quality painted miniatures that we wanted in the game. We didn’t find one in Europe or the U.S., so we decided to travel to China. After a long search, our efforts were successful. We signed a deal with a manufacturer which is certified for companies like Marvel and McDonald’s. Our Chinese partners make sure that the dog miniatures in A Dog’s Life are the best dog figures around.

After a long period of development, we are happy to present the game to players, families, and dog lovers from around the world and to everyone who likes the game’s topic. We believe that you will enjoy the game as much as we do and have a great time playing.
