Details

The Howling Skies are upon us! The greatest dog pilots of our time are battling overhead, each growl and yip bringing them closer and closer. As oil and wood rains down from their fight, I just hope I get to see the action up close some day...

In Dawgs of War, from designer Nathan Hansen, you and up to seven additional friends take to the skies for aerial combat in the era of the Great Dog War. Each player takes on the role of a famous canine pilot as you battle both gravity and the other planes. All plays are made at the same time and you'll be hard-pressed to see the moves coming, as danger can come from any of twelve possible directions. Get ready for the Howling Skies!

Reviews

Straighten up and Fly Right by Jason Meyers (iSlaytheDragon)
If you want some plain old-fashioned fun, [Dawgs of War] is an enjoyable romp through the howling skies with lots of fast-paced action, matching of wits and nerves, and most of all, puns. (7.5/10)
