Lost Puppies Cooperative Board Game

A cooperative game of logic and luck.

How to Play:
The object of the game is to find and bring home all of the lost puppies before night falls. Be careful, the road is blocked and night is falling! To start the game, mix all the cards and place them face down on the spaces and homes on the board. Players take turns turning over cards one at a time to find the puppies and open a path home. If a night card (card with a star on it) is turned up, place it on the space on the board with the corresponding number. If a flashlight light or take-a-peek card is turned up, take it off the board to be used at a later time. Flashlight cards remove night cards and open the path! Take-a-peek cards allow players to peek under a night card. Strategy is key to this game, but a little bit of luck never hurts! Includes 3 instruction versions for a variety of play levels.
Why families love this item:
Kids love puppies and kids love being helpers. When kids are put in charge of finding and rescuing these cute little pets, they are empowered. When they work together rather than against one another they are building valuable life skills in a fun way! Kids are thrilled by the simple challenge of uncovering the puppies, and are equally excited by the challenge to lay out a strategy for how to help get them home. The game requires that players cooperate, that they work together, share in decision-making, and become a team. Just like a real rescue mission! In Lost Puppies, there is not one winner and many losers – everyone gets to be a hero in this game!

What is a cooperative game?
A cooperative game is a game where all players play together against a common obstacle, not against each other. In a cooperative game no one feels left out and everyone has fun! Peaceable Kingdom’s cooperative board games use familiar game mechanisms – spinning a spinner, matching cards, moving a token, strategizing a win! The difference is that players play together. Playing together helps kids in many ways – they experience shared decision-making, they build self-esteem, they learn to share, to feel compassion, and to work as a team. Playing cooperative games teaches kids to cooperate.
Not for children under 3 years.
