We are BETON GAMES, a board game publisher and distributor. Our current publishing project is the renewed edition of the board game A Dog’s Life.

A Dog’s Life is an amazing game by the legendary designer Christophe Boelinger from France. His most famous bestsellers include Archipelago, Dungeon Twister, Draco Mundis. A Dog’s Life is unique both board-game-wise and dog-wise. There is no other board game on the market that lets the players become a dog. It was first published in 2001 by Jeux Descartes in English, German and French. It has completely sold out 3 times.

When published for the first time in 2001 by Jeux Descartes in English, German and French it became a hit! There is no doubt it was an unique opportunity for every dog lover to be in their pet’s shoes.

The game sold out very quickly after it was first published but sadly no one continued. We realized that many families would like to have their own game of A Dog’s Life, so we decided to step in! We’ve put together a great team with one mutual goal: to revive and redesign this famous board game and let all the dog lovers play again!

In 2014, 13 years later, we have discovered a way to make things happen. Eureka! We didn’t hesitate to buy a limited licence from Chris Boelinger and in 2015 we started working on publishing our completely redesigned edition of A Dog’s Life. The first thing we changed in the new version were the rules in order to increase the game-pace so that the game appeals not only to kids but even to experienced players. The beautiful design of the board game and the handpainted miniatures of America’s favourite dogs are also something we’re really proud of!

And our story is just beginning.

After a long period of development, we are happy to present the game to players, families, and dog lovers from around the world and to everyone who likes the game’s topic.

Be a part of A Dog’s Life. Now it’s you who can bring this project to life. We believe that you will enjoy the game as much as we do and have a great time playing.
