From the publisher's website:
At first sight the game reminds of ludo. Four own pawns should be brought home as fast as possible. But then you see the difference the pawns are not moved by a cube, the are moved by cards. BrändiDog is a partner game. It is played as a rule by 4 people. Brändi Dog is a more tactical game and substantially richer in variation than ludo. The choice from cards on hand and the their different functions extend the repertoire of the game enormously. The Brändi Dog is enriched by an additional level, the teamplay. Thereby gamble-factor is reduced again, however good tactics is favoured. These qualities guarantee an exciting and "addictive" game. In Switzerland Brändi Dog has already a mass appeal.
