Use the unique skill of your pup to overcome obstacles and catch prized quarries in the underground world of Dirt Dog. Create challenges for your opponent to find out whose dog has the most moxie in the end!
In Dirt Dog, you win rounds by having more moxie left for your dog than your opponent’s dog does. Each dog starts with a certain pool of moxie, and they can gain and lose moxie based on how you handle the obstacles your dog comes across in the burrows. Players take turns building a burrow for their opponent to run.
You must spend cards in order to defeat obstacles within the burrow. If you can’t clear an obstacle with cards, you must instead spend moxie to progress in the burrow. At the end of each burrow you will face a quarry card, such as a badger, that you will need to defeat with cards in order to successfully complete the burrow.
Once both players have completed their burrow runs the player with the most moxie left wins the round! Subsequent rounds have additional challenges, and depending on how you have spent your cards, you may have less at your disposal to defeat the obstacles.
Best out of 3 rounds wins the game.
