UDog is a beautifully crafted wooden board game that will bring some old-fashioned fun back into your home. In a world that is dominated by screens, this very simple-to-learn, but highly strategic game offers a lot of competition and fun as you gather around the table.
One of the BEST parts of uDog is that you can play with 2-8 players and is for all ages. Give the gift of uDog to your friends and family and be surprised at the hours of fun you will enjoy together!
A Note from the Maker of uDog:
Tradition has it that early settlers in Quebec, Canada developed a game called “Tock.” A Swiss lady learned the game in Canada, copied it on a piece of paper, and took it back to Switzerland in 1982. She began making the game, calling it “Dog” (due to a linguistic misunderstanding).
I was introduced to a version of Dog in Europe in 2011, and it immediately became my favorite. Like the Swiss lady, I traced the game on a piece of paper, brought it back to Michigan, and made my own game out of a piece of plywood. My good friend Quint Thocher helped me create a new design that could be used for 4, 6, or 8 players and taught me how to make it, start to finish.
As I introduced the game to family and friends, I began to get requests from some who wanted their own game. As a result, I began making the game as a hobby in my garage, decided to call it “uDog,” asked my daughter to create a logo (thanks, Rachel!), and in the first 10 months had filled 55 orders – all by word of mouth!
As of early 2020, uDog is now being played in all 50 states of the US and in Australia, Canada, Chile, China, Czech Republic, England, Georgia, Israel, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Moldova, Philippines, Russia, Taiwan, and Ukraine.
And, after playing it hundreds of times myself, it’s still my favorite game! You’ve got to try it!
