Played it now and it is a wonderful game. It is everything I hoped it would be. Have 8 players in our group now who play it and love it. The players who never played Dungeon Lords have a little harder time at first but they catch on quick.

What a great premise! You are an Imp family building a pet shop. You take care of pets that you will eventually sell while collecting money that your family sends you that they were able to collect from their Masters in the Dungeon Lord game. I love the connection with Dungeon Lord while still being it's own game.

It is very reminiscent of Agricola for me because you are trying to bid and compete for your actions.

One of my favorite games - the perfect marriage of theme and mechanics. Enough variability to enjoy over and over, predictable enough to invite long term planning, and the art style seals the deal.

I really enjoy this game. I like the worker placement aspect of it, and how you can mostly determine player order and the items you get to pick if you want them bad enough. The pet raising portion is likewise very entertaining. The monsters you raise behave mostly as you'd expect, but sometimes slightly different. All of this is wrapped in an entertaining theme, solid mechanics, and interesting gameplay.

EDIT: Raised to a 10 with the Dark Alleys expansion!

Perpelexing to play at first (or at leat to be taught the game) but after all that wonderful, if chaotic and slightly messy, worker placement. Will be playing again soon.

My friend and I absolutely love playing this game together. It's great with 2 or 3, but I think 4 would require a lot of waiting. There is a potential for analysis paralysis, but the theme is so strong that you honestly can become emotionally attached to your little monsters.

Probably the most thematic Euro/auction game ever. It is a step up from Dungeon Lord without the combat system that many Euro people hate. It is family friendly as petz do not die -- they only go to the farm and live happily after while a piece of meat mysteriously appears in the meat booth.

Terrific art and sense of humor. Thematically solid. I love the way blind bidding is incorporated into the worker placement. Lovely components. It can take a while to explain everything but the rules are intuitive and the mechanics make perfect thematic sense (sending your imps out to bribe judges, bring home cages, buy pets, recover workers from the hospital or immigration office, etc.), so after a round or two everyone will know what they are doing and the game moves very quickly. Meeting the random needs of your pets while still having all the specific things to score in exhibitions and sell pets makes for a challenging yet fun puzzle element.

What a fantastic game. Brilliantly conceived mechanics that compliment a wonderful, unique theme. It’s a little tricky to explain / teach, but it’s by no means a “complex” game. Everything flows logically and thematically.

It’s filled with strategy and brain-burning moments. Sure, there’s a little bit of “luck” thrown in there, but after all, you’re trying to raise unpredictable monsters! In a nutshell, I love it – one of the most original games in my collection.

A solid 10 through-and-through. This is, to me, a perfect game-- the mechanics are fun and easy to teach, the theme is really well-integrated (especially with the fantastic artwork which, I'm somewhat ashamed to admit, turned me off to the game initially), and there are so many little victories throughout the game and neat stories to tell that who cares who actually wins? Can't get enough of this one.

One of my top 3 games of all times! I don't understand how Vlaada did it, but he literally made board game mechanics feel like a hyper competitive struggle to run a pet shop for magical beasts! The theme and mechanics flow so beautifully in this game! The game is hilarious and is so cut throat at the same time! Each decision is über important. You can do everything right and still lose with one poor choice!

This game has a ton of moving parts and is really a bear to teach, but once everything clicks its a deeply satisfying game. Stressful though. Highly recommended if you don't mind putting in some effort to learn it. Also the 2p blocking mechanism is really good.

For anyone who says an Euro doesn't need theme then they must experience Dungeon Petz. The mechanics and flavor are so perfectly amalgamated that they just build upon each other.

The theme impeccably supports the rules and brilliantly explains the mechanics (e.g. losing no points when you're unknown, bigger pets need more tending, etc). There isn't anything glaringly pure mechanics such as roundels, movement resource, color charts, etc.

Likewise the well-throught gameplay rules build upon the theme (e.g. cannot remove suffering from pets, takes 2 imps to carry a cage, etc.) and all done without relying on chunks of flavor text or detailed miniatures.

A benchmark example of masterful concoction of theme with mechanics that results in a cocktail that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Super cute and adorable game. The idea of raising pets, selling pets and letting them to go to competition makes everything so interesting. The scoring system increase gradually, unlike some other games increase score like rocket. There are a lot of options in the game, some luck involved at the beginning of the turn when determine who goes first, otherwise depends on type of contest and buyer.

The design of monsters are super cute, just that I don't understand why a pony eats meat as well as cute bunny. Everything is straightforward, only the first time things can be completed and confusing, because TOO MANY THINGS GOING ON AT ONCE, but eventually will get use to it.

To those who like pets, you will love this game!

now THAT is a well done theme. It's unique, fun, and well thought out. Better than dungeon lords, I do believe so. It touches all the emotions, and you really do feel sad when a pet dies. and you can feel angry when it puts your cute little minions in the hospital.

the only way this game could be better is if the pieces ran around and did things by you yelling at them.

A masterpiece and a half. But don't be fooled by the design, this game is no cakewalk. It's DEEEEEEEP.

The spiritual successor to Dungeon Lords, this is a much friendlier and IMO, better game.

Pretty eyecandy artwork and a very fun,enjoyable theme, which is all icing on the cake on its own. But fortunately it has stellar and a innovative bidding twist incorporated into its worker placement gameplay to back it up.

Plays well with all player counts, 2, 3, and 4. This is a must own I think for anyone who is a fan of Vlaada Chvatil and/or eurostyle gameplay.

Fun on its own, even better with the Dark Alley expansion, do yourself a favor and give it a try.

The most fun I have ever had reading a rule book (usually it is a chore) but this had me laughing out loud, wanting to read more & will easily be my favorite game along with Alchemists. The art work is sublime & captures perfectly the theme of the game. This is a game made with such love, a perfect game that has me already yearning for the expansion. Vlaada Chvátil, what a stellar game maker you are! David Cochard, hands down my favorite artist & there is no comparison to how vividly you bring a game to life on the board, i love examining the little details of your art work and having a good laugh at what is going on in them. Brilliant brilliant game. No 1 in my games collection, this is perfection & exactly what gaming should be about.

I must say I'm impress! it's such a deep game and somewhat complex although the theme paired with the quality of the production make it so easy to play it. after only one game, my playing group were already thinking ahead all of there moves looking at all the other players monster and need, the mind game was on! after only 1 game! this game might make it into my top 10, i need to play more of it.

edit: after many more games, upgraded to 10/10!

Woah! This game is everything I hoped for and more! First off, it is full of great decisions. Theses decisions may include blocking an opponent, setting yourself up for future rounds, and debating on whether or not to press your luck for big reward - risking the life of your adorable pet for the sake of your stores reputation. Furthermore, the theme is so strong that it's become both me and my 8 year old sisters favorite game! It's strategic enough for gamers and the theme allows for non-gamers to simply have fun as they try to run their own store. My only complaint thus far has been the amount of time it takes to teach the rules. The theme and both humorous and well-written rule book makes teaching the game easier, however expect to spend 15-30 minutes both setting up and teaching the game before starting. And that shouldn't be until after you've studied the rules and solo-tested the game yourself!

This is a great worker placement game with a very fun theme. It's depth is hidden by the smooth game flow. In classic Vlaada style there's quite a few little rules, but all make the game very balanced and fun.

This game is charming (which is not something you expect for a game with cubes that represent "poo" and "suffering"). I love the unique feel it has for what could otherwise have been "just another worker placement with a different theme". I like the variability from game to game, and I enjoy the puzzle of allocating the cards to your various pets in the way that's going to be best for you. Getting the right cards at the right time can really save or ruin you in this game, but that hasn't bothered me in a negative way yet. I don't think the fiddliness is a huge problem, but I would LOVE an iPad version of this game.

Fantastic and completely unique theme in which you are a monster pet handler. I can't think of any game in which the mechanics add so much depth but make so much thematic sense. The rule book is the best (and most fun) I've read.
