In order to complete your own pack of cute dogs, you will need to complete the six 'dog cards' that will make up your pack through various actions (tricks). To do so, you must roll the dice as instructed by the action you have chosen, and place the dice with the specified result on the dog card's spot. However, any dice that you are unable to place during your turn will be moved to your board (garden). If the total number of dice rolls in your garden exceeds a certain number, a 'burst' will occur!

To complete dogs or prevent them from bursting, you need to use 'bones' and six types of action tiles to make good use of them. Of the 22 types of action tiles, only six are used in the game, so you can enjoy different variations of the game and strategies every time. Only players who can wisely and skillfully select the dice and actions will win the game! What kind of flock will you complete?
