We’ve been very fortunate to have a number of third party reviews of the Shady Pets game. Please see several summary quotes below and links to the full article/video reviews below:
Epic Slant: “Shady Pets give you all of the things you like in a game and none of the things that you don’t. Social deduction, animal/pet themes, creative action cards, extremely quick to pick up, set up, and playtime are the defining attributes that make this game a home run. If you have an inclination towards any of the traits I just mentioned, you should take this game for a spin!” Read Review
Everything Board Games: “Deduction games are among my very favorites, and Shady Pets gets quick-deduction-with-a-twist done just right, from the action cards to the ramped-up scoring for each subsequent guess. As a gameschooling mom, I really appreciate the opportunity to work on reason and logic in a short, cute package. The octopus. He’s my favorite and now lives in the game room and often visits games where he’s not even an official character. I didn’t know what my life was missing, but it turned out to be an octopus wearing sunglasses. The photos of the pets on the Pet cards are adorable, and the illustrations on the Action cards are hysterical! There’s a lot of fun to be had just from looking at and reading the cards.” Read Full Article
