Fight to become the most successful competitive dog walker in Bark Avenue''s next board game.
Bark Avenue is a game that combines the knowledge of many canines at once as they stroll through the city streets. Each dog has their own unique preferences when it comes to walk-length, activities, and bathroom breaks, which they may need to follow if they want happy customers.
When completed, each dog''s salary is worth a different amount of money, with the more expensive jobs demanding more attention and care. Chaque dog also has their own preferences when it comes to interacting with other dogs, with some pups preferring to be around others of a certain size. Along the way, players will have to be aware of various everyday events in New York City, challenging their ability to manage their party of pooches.
Players traveling throughout Upper Manhattan will need to be grouped based on timing, route, and dog combinations, with the goal being to carefully balance every element in order to maximise efficiency and receive the best possible reviews.
Each turn of the family board game begins with players rolling a city or park die depending on where they''re starting from before moving their meeple based on the speed of the slowest dog they currently have in the party. Players are then able to drop-off or pick-up dogs depending on the length of time they have taken them out. Every dog must have a certain length of walk.
Players based on how many dogs they have successfully walked and positive feedback they have received, along with suggestions they have received for getting some extra points through the game, such as taking dogs to their favourite spots. Each player who has the most points by the end of the game is named the winner.
Mackenzie and Jonathan Jungck co-created Bark Avenue and is expected to be published by Terradice Games, with this being both the designers and the studios debut tabletop titles.
The Kickstarter campaign for Bark Avenue is on June 15th, with a pledge of $49 (39) getting backers a copy of the game in September 2023.
