The Fox Experiment

The Fox Experiment is inspired by geneticists in Siberia who decided to try to replicate the domestication of dogs -- but with foxes. Even though the foxes were chosen only for their friendliness, they soon started to get many of the physical traits that we associate with domesticated animals, like spots, floppy ears, and curly tails.

The game is played over a series of rounds in which you select foxes, breed them by rolling a bunch of dice, write on cards to make pups, and get stuff for the pups that you made. Then the pup cards become the parents for the next round.

This game is on Kickstarter in September 2022, with retail release expected in 2023.
