Dungeons & Dragons & Dogs

Luke Plunkett Jul 25, 2018. 6 comments

Dungeons and Doggies is a miniature release from Animal Adventures that lets anyone who plays D&D—and wants to go on quests with very good boys—have some cute dogs join their party.

The set includes 13 adventuring dog miniatures, as well as a “bespoke set of fifth edition compatible rules for using your Animal Adventure miniatures and playing as dogs in ANY campaign setting.”

Each dog comes on either a 20mm or 25mm base (so they’re the same scale as other miniatures), and while players are free to come up with their own characters, “each miniature comes with its own pre-generated character, complete with character sheet and short story! Whether you fancy being Hartley, a gruff and stoic fighter or Freya, a noble guardian druid, there’s a dog for every player.”

Dungeons & Doggies is currently up on Kickstarter, where it’s 13x over its original asking price.

26 Years Later, Here's A Deleted Scene From The Super Mario Bros. Movie 26 Years Later, Here's A Deleted Scene From The Super Mario Bros. Movie

As terrible as it was, the 1993 Mario Bros. movie has a cult following online, led by the dedicated team at SMBmovie.com, who have spent years cataloguing and uploading everything you’d ever want to know —and a lot of stuff you wouldn’t—about the film. In May, they hit paydirt: they got hold of an old VHS tape that contained...

Fantasy Flight, the publishers of some of the biggest and best board games around (from Star Wars to Arkham to Game of Thrones), have a little tradition going among staff: Once you’ve worked there for five years, you get to appear as a character in one of their games.While this might sound like the same kind of thing you...

One Of The Best WW2 Board Games Is Now Even Better One Of The Best WW2 Board Games Is Now Even Better

Memoir 44 was already one of the great tactical board games, stripping the rules of war down to their barest bones and emphasising speed and fun over rulers and fine print.

It Is Surprisingly Hard To Create An Incompetent Ass-Clown In Dungeons & Dragons It Is Surprisingly Hard To Create An Incompetent Ass-Clown In Dungeons & Dragons

Kotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.  The great escapist fantasy of Dungeons & Dragons is that you are not a salaryperson shoveling handfuls of gummy bears into your mouth and rolling 20-sided die. Rather, you are a singularly important hero with a singular capacity to disarm some impending plot bomb. It’s a time-tried...

Raiders Of The North Sea Is A Really Good Digital Board Game Raiders Of The North Sea Is A Really Good Digital Board Game

As I’ve recently put on record here , I think Tokaido is the best digital board game. Its stay at the top might be short-lived, though, because Raiders of the North Sea, out this week on PC, Switch and mobile, is very good. The Best Board Game You Can Play On Your Phone Phones are of course great to...

Star Wars: Outer Rim: The Kotaku Review Star Wars: Outer Rim: The Kotaku Review

When I was a kid, I had a dream video game. It was basically “Wing Commander: Privateer”, only bigger, and it was set in the Star Wars universe. I’m still waiting on the video game, but Fantasy Flight have this year delivered much the same experience, only in board game form.Outer Rim is the company’s latest licensed offering, and as...

Jason Rohrer (Passage, Sleep Is Death) thought it’d be fun to train an AI to create fake Magic: The Gathering card names. It was a good hunch.To do it, he created a database of 18,978 card names, which the AI would then use to jumble all the words up and come up with new stuff. Amazingly, aside from simply...

Old habits die hard. That still doesn’t mean you should play a half-elf every single time you play Dungeons & Dragons.
