This is my first GeekList. blush

I thought I would start off with a fun little list for people to find games featuring the pet(s) that they own.

I have tried to pick simple, fun games and I have only selected one game for each pet type; So feel free to comment under each game with alternative options.

Also if I have missed your pet (shame on me) and you know a great game that they feature in, go ahead and add it to the list.
Alternatively, if I have missed your pet (shame on me) and you only know a truly, unforgivably awful game that leaves a disgusting taste in your mouth even just to think of it... go ahead and add it to the list. It may be the only one or others might comment under it telling you a better one.

I hope you like my list.

Cat

I should probably start with the pet that I own, a cat (Dr. Leonard).

Build a tower out of adorable cat cards (because we all know how much cats love being carefully placed in to high tower formations). Be the first to get rid of all your cats but don't you dare make that tower topple.

Based on the old folk game "Chuck Your Cat On The Pile But Make Sure It Doesn't Fall Down Or Else".

...That last sentence was a lie.

Rat

At one point a couple of years ago I owned 8 rats so here they are propping up the number 2 spot.

Scottish warrior rats... because why not?

Designed by Seiji Kanai (designer of Love Letter) it is very much follows the same style of game play. A 2 player game in which you try to outwit your opponent by selecting and playing 1 card against each other at a time. The cards have numbers and special abilities that effect one another in varying ways.

Featuring some very lovely art work.

P.S. Rats are cool, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Dog

I don't know what you like to do with your dogs but I personally love to strap them to the front of a sled and race them against my friends.

Create an awesome track to navigate, put trees on it to avoid and let loose the dogs. Play different cards to change the speed of your dogs to help navigate the course. Moving your little sled meeple as you go.

A very neat little racing game which deserves a place on the list just for the pun in the name.

Royal bunnies going through a divorce and trying to gain influence with the court. A pretty obvious theme really. Don't know how it wasn't done sooner.

A 2 player game in which you draft your cards to build a deck and carefully play them to earn the influence of the court.

Featuring cool little carrot pieces.

Mouse

Another game with beautiful art work and featuring a pop-up board (Yay, pop-up board).

A nice little press your luck game. You play cards to see how far you move that turn with the twist that the cards you play are blindly being drawn from the other players hands. If you draw an obstacle card you don't move that turn.

First person to rescue the Sacred Cheese (Yay, Sacred Cheese, you rock!)from the clutches of the Red Dragon (Boo, Red Dragon, you suck!) wins.

Fish

What do you mean a salmon doesn't fit in your fish tank? Get a bigger fish tank you Scrooge.

Happy Salmon is a very quick, easy, fun game. Everyone has a set of cards with actions on (including happy salmon, where you sort of slap your forearms together). They stand around a table shouting their action until someone else matches them and they do the action together then move on to a new card.

So... perfect for the strategy war gamer.

Snake

Ever wanted to be a seedy salesman from the wild west creating and selling ludicrous products to your peers? Yes? Then have I got the game for you? Yes, yes I have. Snake Oil.

The (now) classic, one judge mechanic is used here. Everyone takes it in turn to pitch their latest product, created by combining words from separate cards. Best much wins. One for the creative people.

Shall I sign you up for 100 copies? You got it, pal.

Creepy Crawlies

As much as I think it is an absurd idea to own an insect as a pet, some people do. So I have bulked them all in to one game here (including you arachnid fans out there).

Hive is a very successful abstract game for 2 players. The aim is to have your opponents Queen Bee surrounded on all sides. Each creepy crawly has its own special movement conditions. I have gone for the pocket edition here as it is more portable.

YOU CAN'T HUG AN ANT! YOU JUST CAN'T!

Tortoise/Turtle

Slow and steady wins the race... sometimes... sometimes it makes you come last and and a petrified sheep beats you.

Here we have another racing/betting game. Place your bets on who you think is going to win then manage your cards well enouogh to make sure they do.

The box is a personal highlight here. It looks like a book of the famous fable. Very nice.

"Pigs?" You say?
Yup. Plenty people purchase porky play pals as pets.

Nothing makes pigs happier then being bred in a field with lines on and then being sold. Fact. In Happy pigs that's what you do. You breed and grow your pigs then sell them off. The winner is the one with the most money at the end.

A fantastic little game.

Sheep

It is common knowledge that sheep can only move in straight lines and in this abstract strategy game that comes through nicely.

Each player has a pile of sheep tiles. They take it in turns moving any number of sheep from one of their piles in a straight line across the pasture. Eventually you will no longer be able to move any more. The player with the most spaces occupied by their sheep wins.

Horse

Hay, did you think I would leave out the rich kids? Nope, horses can be pets too. However, I have resorted to the easy option of a horse racing game. The horses race, you bet on them and decide which ones move. Simple.

The most recent edition has some beautifully painted horses and quality metal coins.

Did you miss the pun? Right there at the beginning? ... HAY.

Chicken

"Hey Mum, where is mad uncle Louie?"
"Oh, you know, out flying his plane extremely low over the local chicken farms trying to kill the chickens with his propellers."
"Classic Louie."

So yes this is an extremely light game but it was a staple of my childhood and I loved it. Use your level to knock Loopin' Louie in to the air to protect your chickens. If all your chickens are knocked down you lose.

Birds

Yes, that's right, chickens get their own spot and all other birds get clumped in to one game. BUT in my defence it is a pretty game.

You are bird watchers traveling to different areas and seeing what birds you can. All through the medium of cards. Each player places a card. Any birds in the same area as the one you placed can be seen by you too. When you "see" a bird you mark it off on your sheet. Whoever gets the most points wins.

There are a lot of birds here. Try not to get pooped on.

Lizard

Own a pet lizard? Ever wanted to slap it in the face? Moreover, does your friend have a pet lizard that you have wanted to slap in the face because it keeps eating your flies? Your wish has been granted.

Gobbit is a speed "snap" style of game. You take it in turns placing cards and if the right combination comes up you slap the corresponding pile. The player with all the cards at the end wins. Gobbit adds a nice twist that the formula for what cards need to be slapped and when changes up. Keeping you on your toes.

So go ahead, slap your friend's lizard!

You like frogs do you? Probably spend all day playing leap frog with your buddies. I bet that gets exhausting after a while. Why not come home after a long day of leap frogging with friends and settle down to a game of Bullfrogs.

A pretty little area control game in which you are trying to have the most frogs on different lily pads. If you do you claim that pad all the frogs hop about. The person with the most points from claiming lily pads at the end wins.

Hamster?

OK I am kind of cheating on this one as the game doesn't feature a hamster. It just has a device that looks kind-of, slightly, not-quite-but-enough-like a hamster wheel.

In this dexterity game you take it in turns to place wooden pieces on the hamster wheel in a way so as they don't fall out. First person to get rid of their pieces wins.

Most games featuring hamsters suck... trust me, I checked!
