It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

What have you lost because of your pets?

Did you ever get a replacement, or wait to retrieve said missing item... or just deal with it?

I got a feeling I'm not the only one whose lost a few items.

I don't know if he ate it, or if we never got one... but somehow I am missing a brown road.

My dog ate one of the tile squares. Something about the chewy cardboard that she just couldn't resist. The fix: scanned one of the other tiles, and glued it onto a piece of cardboard. Worked out well, and I no longer leave games within dog reach!

So now the games are out of reach, but are they out of harm's way??? I think not!

The day I received Chang Cheng, I set it up and gazed upon the Great Wall of China as it was laid out in miniature form. As I raised a glass of water (as a toast to the game?) the dog joined in the celebration by jumping up and knocking the glass of water.

Of course, no water got on the floor or on me. It all went onto the game! And not onto the plastic wall pieces, just the cardboard cards! And not just any of them, only onto the green ones (my favorite playing color!).

Some quick drying action, and a couple of days under a pile of books, and the green cards are just fine, and the dog was spared a trip to the SPCA Just kidding!

My kittens hauled off with one of the skeletons from Descent -- and not just a regular skeleton, a master skeleton who had been painted!

Jeremy from Fantasy Flight was kind enough to bring an extra skeleton to BGG.CON 07 for me.

A yellow wooden piece (the largest ones). It fell on the floor and was eaten faster than anyone could react. I swear I feed my dogs....they just like Euros.

A red biscuit....or was it a red piece of poo? Anyway, it fell under the table and by the time it was reclaimed only half of it was left.

I can't verify this for sure...but the box spilled in the back of the car and after I put everything back in, one of the orange castle pieces was missing. I looked EVERYWHERE, and I think it was eaten.

One day, under the table, I found the remnants of the shown tile. My dog obviously had chewn on it, but it probably wasn't tasty enough to eat it.

And maybe she concluded games were no fun at all, not only because the horrid taste of cardboard, but also because I don't pay enough attention to my dog while playing games...
soblue

I never cared to replace the tile. It doesn't matter, there's plenty left and it doesn't get on the table anymore, anyway.

My dog was never a chewer......until I had some chess sets sitting out.
The only thing that he ever decided to chew (other than his toys) was a single piece from two different chess sets. AAAAuuuugggghh!
And one of them was a nice set I've had since I was a kid.

One evening when my wife and I were visiting some friends, she asked me to bring some games to play. We had never visited these people before and I became concerned when I saw that they had two large dogs in the house.
I took pains to keep the dogs away from my games, and all seemed to be going fairly well...

...until we got into the car at the end of the evening. It was at this point that my wife informed me that their 2-3 year old daughter, not their dogs, managed to dig into my bag of games, pull out Lucca Citta, open the pack and make a snack of one of the cards!

I had been spending all of my time trying to keep the unrestrained mammoths away from the games we were playing (and receiving no assistance) and missed the sneaky little weasle breaking into the chicken coop.

Needless to say, I'll not be taking any games over to their house again.

I had just bought Indonesia and was getting ready to play my first game with friends. Seeing as though this was (and still is) the most expensive game I own, I was being particularly careful when handling the game. I noticed my friend awkwardly handling the rules looking as though he would crease the front page, and so I made a remark. He shot me a look, set the rules down on the table, and walked out of the room. My cat immediately jumped up onto his chair and bit my rules! I have little, kitty teeth bites in my rules.

I got this bit of my childhood in a very poor trade (for me, the guy I traded with must have been estatic). I opened the box to make sure everything was in there and the Rat monster marker fell on the floor. In the 30 seconds it took me to realize it, my dog found it, chewed it a bit, and left it for dead.

we finally got enough folks together for this to hit the table. My buddy Eran brought his copy over and insisted we play with it as mine was still in shrink.

As he is explaining the rules to some of the noobs, a march order hits the floor and my rat terrier, Arms, is on it in a second. I tried to pry his mouth open, but did not have much luck.

I have been meaning to get a hold of Fantasy Flight and try to get a replacement. I picked up the first expansion, so it's pretty important that I get it. I've been a little lazy however.
