We're excited! You're excited! Let's do this thing!

Baltimore, Maryland: Alex and Sarah made plans to meet one another (Covid testing, quarantine precautions were adhered to) on December 4th. The plan: to review the Pre-Production Copy arriving from the factory. Quality review and final changes and updates can be made to the digital files in advance of printing.

Production: It's hard to contain the excitement of having the PPC in our hands, and having the finish line in our grasp is a surreal feeling. We have to manage our desire to just hit "go" with our standard of quality for the game.

Most everything that we've gotten meets and exceeds our expectations. Here's some of the conversations we've had: "It's weird to say that I have no notes for specific cards. Like, we knew we'd get here but to say it is totally done is a little surreal!" ~Sarah

"How about the soft finish on the boards?" ~Sarah

"SO SOFT." ~Alex

"IT'S GREAT." ~Kiki

"Yeah I'm super into it." ~Sarah

Kickstarter Backer's Choice Dice: The moment we've been eagerly awaiting is here! The dice design was voted by our backers via the CrowdOx survey. We tallied all the votes, and winning by a 10% margin are the Original Six Dogs! As always, Sarah did the illustrations and Kiki made the vectors which allow for this stunning design to work!

We've got a lot to say about the dice!

"I LOVE THIS DIE what the heck" ~Kiki

Timelines are still mostly on track; but there are known risks to our project that are outside of our control. The team is working hard to try to get up, over, around, and through the obstacles as they present themselves.


Potential Risks to the Timeline

  1. Covid: The global health crisis has delayed several points in the world supply chain. Unfortunately, we're just not big enough to be prioritized over some of the other larger projects.

  2. Chinese New Year: Shipping over the ocean is challenging enough, however there are other delays that may happen moving our materials across land. Trucks are in shorter supply and truck drivers must take additional health precautions.

Thank you all for your support!

Show off your copy of Dogs BOND with the Kickstarter Backers' Choice Die: The Original Six! This special add-on for Dogs BOND gives game enthusiasts and dog lovers a very satisfying "thud" with every roll of the die!

Fall in love with the Mutt Mixes every time with the easy-to-read designs and large size for easy handling by small hands! Heck, add this to ANY of your board games! Just like dogs, we love being included!

The dogs were drawn by Sarah as a fun and playful interpretation of our dogs that would work on the dice.

Kiki took the illustrations and turned them into vector art to lay on top of a beautiful and unique marbling color pattern on the die that matches our Instinct card color.

The Mutt Mixes were placed on the die in size order, smallest to largest, on the six sides. Our Original Six Mutt Mixes for the game are Pomeranian, Jack Russell, Basset Hound, Border Collie, Labrador, and Golden Retriever.

This is a 25mm six-sided die, which is significantly larger than the standard 16mm six-sided die. The material is resin to make the sound louder and more emphatic.

All the votes were tallied as of October 25, 2020, and winning by over a 10% margin was the Original Six Dog Mutt Mixes design.

You can still let us know your favorite design, and we will show the final results of voting once we are through with pre-production!
