Your primary goal, in Canine Kleptomaniacs, is to collect and hide sets of Collectables and end up with the most Pooch Points.
If you play your cards right; get lucky with the dice and do some downright doggy deals to help you collect and safely hide your stash before it’s pilfered from you, you might just make it as top dog!
Types of cards
In Canine Kleptomaniacs, there are four types of cards - Action, Collectables, Master's Bedroom and Doggy Character cards.
You’ll play as one of eight doggy characters, with your own pilfering preferences and special action powers.
You’ll discover nine different, delightfully doggy types of Collectables to sniff out and hoard as sets in your Hiding Places.
The Ultimate Paw
Among the Collectables cards you’ll find the Ultimate Paw of Pilferage. With this card in your hand you’ll be able to unleash epic pilfering powers! But beware, every other player will be trying to prize it out of your sweaty little paws!
The second special card lurking in the Collectables deck is the Poo Pizza. If you’re left holding this revolting splat at the end of the game, you’re going down 30 Pooch Points!
Action cards have the biggest influence on your destiny throughout the game. There are epic ones that reward you with Collectables or allow you to steal off other players, nasty ones which lose you sets, and just plain cool ones that protect you from other pilfering paws or let you pass on unwanted cards.
In addition to pilfering and hiding various sets of Collectables, you might be lucky enough to get into the Master’s Bedroom, where reside a rich bounty of doggy treats.

The Family Gamers
“Definitely one of the silliest party games we’ve played this year, Canine Kleptomaniacs made us laugh until we cried.”
Public Choice Kickstartgaming Award 2019
“We were so impressed by how well the game worked in this family environment (creating smiles all around) that Golden Ginty Games Ltd have pilfered an award, and the hearts of our players for how enjoyable this game is to play!”
“It is a great game and is loved by everyone who plays it in our shop!”
We're the Joneses, an ordinary family of five human beings. Before children arrived we were a 'cat family'. Here's Rosie and Jim. Sadly they are no longer with us.
Then, something strange happened, we became - a dog family! Meet our beloved canine family member, Amber.
Also known variously as:
Ginty, Ginty McFluffkins, The Glinnet, Poochus Moochus, Fluffers McGuffers and simply, Golden One.
As you may be able to tell, she has made quite an impression on us.
We weren't expecting it, but it seems we've become as 'dog mad' as anyone!
But there's a dark and devious side to our sixth family member.
You see, as much as she loves us, and we love her, she is a compulsive, persistent, determined stealer of things.
Socks, pants, cycling shorts, t-shirts, slippers, you name it, she thieves it.
Bored and trapped in our caravan on a recent wet 'summer' holiday an idea was birthed, inspired by the thieving antics of our fluffy pooch.
"Let's invent a game", we thought, "something we can play as a family, something that will unstick children's faces from their screens, something that will create family harmony, encourage communication and which is fun, simple, silly and endlessly re-playable".
And so Canine Kleptomaniacs was born.
