Instruction Video (JP)

Preparation

  • Place the dog token (Coco) in the center of the Gingham sheet.
  • Shuffle the cards well and place the deck face down. (pile)

 

Game play

Start with the player who loves dogs the most and play in a clockwise direction.

Step 1

The first player takes one card from the deck and places it face up next to Coco. (card cannot be placed diagonal to Coco)

Step 2

Subsequent players place the next card next to Coco or next to another card. (cards cannot be placed diagonal to Coco or cards)

Step 3

Can capture

If a player captures a card between two matching cards that player takes the two matching cards and any cards in between those two cards. (If you cannot take them, you can still place a card there.)

Cannot capture

You cannot capture cards when:
• Taking the cards will leave Coco or any card on its own

• Coco is in between the cards

Step 4

The player who takes the cards can then move Coco to anywhere on the sheet; however, Coco or any card may not be left on its own.

Game conclusion

  • Once all cards in the deck are drawn, the game is concluded.
  • Dog: 2 points, All other cards: 1 point
  • Tally up all cards and the player with the highest score wins!
