#AD Family game night is always a great way to have fun as a family. No matter what age, sitting down to a board game together puts everyone on the same page. We have some board game favorites at our house that we play over and over. When shopping at Walmart, I spotted a fun twist that I knew my family would love: pet-themed games!
Pet Themed Games For Family Game Night
We have a few family pets- including a cat and a dog! They get along pretty well- most of the time! So I picked up two pet themed games – Monopoly Crazy for Cats and SORRY! Pets Behaving Badly (each sold separately). My daughter really is crazy for cats so I knew she would like that one. Plus, we already love Monopoly and the SORRY! game, so I figured these would be instant hits with a fun twist. Turns out, our pets had fun checking out the games too!
SORRY! Pets Behaving Badly
SORRY! Pets Behaving Badly also brings all the original elements but includes some funny twists.
Objective: Oops! You and your furry and feathered friends have trashed the house. Be the first to hide before your human gets home- just watch out for poops and don’t get busted! Get all four of your pawns home first to win!
Sorry Pets Behaving Badly Rules
- Each player takes 4 pawns of one color and places them on the matching color Start area.
- Each player takes all 3 Poop Tokens in their color and places the tokens in front of them.
- Shuffle both decks of cards and place them face down in the center of the board.
- Youngest player goes first. Play passes to the left.
Play! On your turn:
- Draw a card from the SORRY! deck and follow the instructions on the card.
- Place the card face up in a discard pile at thee side of the gameboard.
- If you run out of SORRY! cards to draw, reshuffle the discard pile and place it face down in the center of the board.
Any forward-moving card can move a pawn out of its START space.
Pawns move clockwise around the board, unless a card instructs them otherwise.
Each turn you get to draw a card from the SORRY! game deck. If you land on an Oops! space, you can draw an Oops! card, which are silly little bonuses like “Yes, I did it. He was looking at me funny.” When you get three Oops cards, you can move one of your pawns directly home!
A #2 SORRY! game card, means you may place one of your poop tokens on the board underneath one of your pawns and then move your pawn forward two spaces, leaving the token in place. If someone else lands on your poop token, they pawn must go back to the START space!
Pet lovers are sure to enjoy all the fun twists in these versions of the original games.
Monopoly Crazy for Cats
Almost everyone is familiar with Monopoly and it is always a fun game. Monopoly Crazy for Cats brings all the elements you love, but they really change it up quite a bit too!
Objective: Instead of getting the most money, you are trying to collect the most cats.
Set up is nice and easy as each player starts with 5 single-cat coins and 1 5-cat coin (so a total of 10 cats).
The character tokens are straight from the Crazy World of Cats and each has a unique ability.
There is also a Purr Power Die with fun powers like the Toy Mouse that will make any player drop 3 cats or the Fish Bowl that allows you to collect 3 cats from the shelter.
When you pass go, you trigger a cat fight to see if you can beat the breeder and get the bonus.
The game ends immediately when the final cat fight is over. The player with the highest cat score wins. Add up the cats from your property cards, cat fight cards, and cat coins. This definitive game ending comes pretty quickly so this version on Monopoly seems to take around 30 minutes to 1 hour for us.
Where To Get These Fun Pet Games
These fun pet themed games can be found at Walmart. You can purchase these Pet-Themed and other assorted games in-store (look for them on an endcap!) or online at Walmart.com
