Shiba Inu House, the card game of fun colourful puzzles and quick reflexes.

A game for the whole family with the cutest dogs from the land of the rising sun. This is an offer you can't refuse and let me tell you why.

Firstly, the art. Featuring an anime like style, these canines are made to look as cute as possible with several distinct poses that will bring out the 'Awwwww' factor in you. Add to that the bright colours and the whole package just jumps out at you and anybody walking by the table. 

In Shiba Inu House, your goal is to build new doghouses for your dog and in the fastest time possible. Each player will get their own deck of double sided dog cards. Then one of the puzzle cards are turned over and as fast as possible, each player will try to complete the picture on the puzzle card with their dog cards. 

The player who finishes first will grab the highest scoring point card on the table that is still available and exchange the card for points to keep track of their score from round to round.  

Do this through all 3 decks and the person with the most points wins.

The gameplay is the second reason why this game is a keeper. It is short, clocking in at about 15 to 30minutes and the real-time aspect of the game keep things exciting. Yet the puzzle aspect of the game makes it more than just a speed game.  

The puzzles cards also get harder as the game goes on and the red coloured puzzle deck will even take adults some time to figure out. Thus, a game for all ages.

Third, there is even a solitaire mode to the game of just trying to figure out the puzzles by oneself.  A mode especially useful for kids to train their pattern recognition and logic skills. It is also a great brain activity to do when one is waiting for a friend or have some free time as the game is small and easily transportable. 

Shiba Inu House will be coming to ToyTag soon, so come down to our store to get a copy and bring home a box of smiles with these cute puppies.
