Are you looking for a barking good time? Do you need something to keep your family entertained? Why not break out the Dog-Opoly board game?

Over the holidays, I found a number of “Opoly” games while doing a run through the drug store. These games, which are a play off of a traditional Monopoly game, are a fun way to enjoy a board game with a fun theme. And while I snagged more than one theme, the one that is perfect for us here at Dog O’Day is none other than Dog-Opoly.

As a dog lover, there was no way I was going to leave Dog-Opoly behind in the store, and I am so glad I didn’t. Not only am I a fan of board games and Monopoly, but the fact that this one is all about the dogs makes it an epic game for when you’re bored and looking to have some fun with friends or family.

And right now, I think we could all use a bit of a fun distraction. So, what better way to do that than with a friendly game of Dog-Opoly?

This game gave me (and my family) everything we could have wanted in a Monopoly game, but with the entire focus being on our favorite furry friends. In this game, the properties are actually dog breeds, and every deed features interesting facts about the different pups represented.

With doggie twists and treats, this is an “Opoly” game we can get behind. And as an added bonus, it certainly helps that there are two options for play – the standard game or a one-hour game. Oh, and we can’t forget the magic of those game pieces, which represent some of our four-legged friends treats and tricks, from a steak to a cat, these tokens really are for the dogs.

While Dog-Opoly is definitely family friendly, and great for a younger crowd, it is also fun for older game lovers too. I know I enjoyed playing this while staying in with loved ones.
