The Company

Boss Dog Games is a company that our family of 5 started during the pandemic when our other business took quite the turn and changed our lives completely.

A funny joke quickly became our very first game, and with that, started a new mission to make people laugh.

Since our company was created during tough times, we realized that sometimes all a family needs is a good laugh. That's why, after developing our first production run,  we donate x1 game for every x1 sold after our campaign to kids in hospitals across the country. Our mission is to create a gaming company that isn't always about profits, and our third game, Boss Dog is continuing that mission. Every new game we create allows us to spread more joy and laughs! 

Our first game, Farting Frenchies and our second, Bear Stare Down, have continued to be a great success and since launching the initiative June 2021, we've donated over 8,000 games to kids in hospitals across the country! 

The Fam behind the Games

Hi! We’re the Naqvi’s.  We’re passionate about family, pets, food, the great outdoors...and games! Like many business owners, our small business took a back seat during quarantine, so we filled our days creating and playing games. We wanted to bring that same joy to others so we decided to give it a go and create the gaming company you see today! Our first game, Farting Frenchies was a huge success so we pivoted and created a gaming company that the whole family has a hand in! We’ve had so much fun ever since!

Being a family of entrepreneurs, designers & artists really helps! Family walks around the neighborhood are now brainstorming sessions and time after dinner is spent drawing and revising our games. It’s been a blast!

Our games come to us from life, being, well, funny!

November 2020 - The 'Beware of Bears' Game Story

It all came from a trip... to the woods. We live in CT, pretty far from bear country, so when we went for a hike one day and came upon a “Beware of Bears” sign we were surprised...aaaand had a good laugh...See, one member of the family, who shall remain nameless, (pssst rhymes with icky) has a habit of falling into haaaaiiiry situations while on trips. We all laughed that chances are he’d be the one to get caught by a bear.

The backstory: rewind to 2017 when we went on a trip to L.A. to film for Shark Tank. The day before we went on set, Mickey took a tumble off an electric scooter, got four stitches and two fractured wrists! After insisting he was fiiiiine, (Brave kid!) the very next day Mickey went head-to-head with nature again- a SHARK named Mr. Wonderful!

Fast forward to 2019; we’re on a trip, yet again, and Mickey gets stung by the third most dangerous jellyfish in the world-- a Portugese Man O War, aaaand, thank goodness, lives to tell the tale. See, nature and trips do not end well for Mickey!

So that’s why we had a good laugh...aaaand spent the rest of the hike talking about how it would make a hilarious game! We went home and immediately created the game. That game is 98% the exact same game to this day.

May 2020 - The Farting Frenchies Story:

...They’re cute, they’re cuddly, they’re— stinky? Our family fell head over heels for our lil guy Ace on Sofia's 5th birthday... but little did we now he was a stinker, and he looooooves food....but he’s cute....so we couldn’t help but fuel his stinky habit!

One day in quarantine we were taking turns laughing about what makes Ace stink the most, like that time he ate Gouda cheese! Or the time he got into the leftover tacos! and we laughed so much we turned it into a game!

Now you can play Farting Frenchies and have a laugh too! 

xoxo,

The Naqvis
