Based on the bestselling book series by Dav Pilkey, author of Captain Underpants, Dog Man Attack of the Fleas is a cooperative board game in which players, the ‘Supa Buddies’, are working together to save the city from the Fleas – the ‘Fuzzy Little Evil Animal Squad’.
To win, players work together to defeat the Fleas and their Robo-Brontosaurus, and then move every player safely back to Dog Man’s house within three turns. To start, each player selects a favourite Supa Buddy and places their character on the corresponding spot on the game board. On a turn, a player can either spin the spinner or use a token that they have collected.
There are four different types of tokens that players can collect from around the game board.
- Shrink Ray – This token can be used by players when they land on the Robo-Brontosaurus’ space. It entitles them to remove a piece from the Robo-Brontosaurus. The Shrink Ray can also be used with the Chopper token or Invisible Spray on the same turn to move more quickly towards Robo-Brontosaurus.
- Chopper – Players can use this token to move anywhere on the board!
- Invisible Spray – This token allows players to move up to double the number of spaces on the spinner. For example: if a player spins a 3, that player can move either 3, 4, 5, or 6 spaces forward.
- Robo-Brontosaurus Spin & Move Back – This token allows the player to spin the spinner and move the Robo-Brontosaurus back that many spaces.
The object of the game is to destroy the Robo-Brontosaurus before it reaches the end! To learn more, check out Anneka’s in depth video: How To Play: Dog Man Attack of the Fleas Board Game on UG Studios YouTube Channel.
