Description: 

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.

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.
