Adopt Pets For the First Time in Game of Life: Pet Edition

How do you make anything better? You add precious furry friends into the mix!

Finally—cute little cat and dog pegs can join your brightly colored car as you journey through the game board in the Game of Life: Pets Edition.

The classic game, from Hasbro, has been officially updated to incorporate pets into the gameplay for the first time. The game is available for presale today at Amazon and at most major retailers later this summer, and will introduce cat and dog pegs and pet cards to the classic board.

Here’s how the new edition will work: All players will start out with one car, a Spin to Win token, one pink or blue peg, one pet peg, and $200k. Cards will now be split into five decks: house, action, career, college career, and pet. When players land on a pet space, draw the top “pet” card from the deck, read it aloud, and do what it says. At the end of the game, the card will be worth money. There are 15 Pet cards, which include different actions such as “passing obedience school” or “eating homework.”

  2. We are having the same problem. I am assuming it’s when you land on a pet space. But it’s pretty annoying that it doesn’t say in the instructions.

      There is a card in the deck that allows you to add another pet to your car.

  3. While playing the game me and my friends became confused as to how or if you can get more pets in the game as there are more pet pegs than cars.

      Hi Zoe,

      We recommend reading the included instructions to figure out how to navigate the pets in the game. Sometimes if you have too many pets, you can take it old school and stack them on top of your car!
