Now There’s a Pets Edition of Hasbro’s Game of Life

The Game of Life: Pets Edition officially incorporates dogs and cats into gameplay for the first time ever.

Grab your furry friends, animal lovers — The Game of Life is welcoming pets to the classic game board.

For the first time, fans are encouraged to grow their family with newly added cat and dog pegs as they move around the board. Players can go to college, marry, have a family — and now, adopt a pet — as they see what happens when unexpected twists change up the game.


Once everyone reaches the end of the game at retirement, everyone pays their debts and adds up their wealth. The player with the most money wins the game.

Here are a few more details on the gaming experience:

  • All players start out with 1 car, a Spin to Win token, 1 pink or blue peg, 1 pet peg and 200K.
  • Cards are split into 5 decks: House cards, Action cards, Career cards, College Career cards and Pet cards.
  • When you land on a Pet space, you draw the top Pet card from the deck, read it aloud and do what it says. At the end of the game, this card will be worth money.
  • There are 15 Pet cards, which include different actions such as “Pass Obedience School” and “Eat Homework.”
