Ask a Question

In 1958, Demitri Belyaev and Lyudmila Trut started an experiment on domestication. From a large group of foxes, they selected the ones that reacted to humans with more curiosity and less aggression. In each generation, they selected only the friendliest pups to become parents — hoping to recreate the process that originally led to domestication thousands of years ago. The experiment made stunning progress. 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. As communication opened up, the foxes made major contributions to our understanding of how these traits are expressed. The experiment continues to this day.

In The Fox Experiment, you’ll breed your own domesticated foxes. In each round you'll select a pair of fox parents who have certain traits. You'll gain those specific trait dice, roll them, then try to move them around to make complete trait symbols which you'll then mark off on your pup card. You'll then gain trait tokens depending on how many traits you marked off which you'll use to upgrade tracks on your personal player board.

At the end of the round, the previous generation of foxes will be cleared and all of the new pups will be moved to the kennel — thus becoming candidates to be chosen as parents in the next round. The game ends after 5 rounds and you'll gain points for pleasing patrons (end of game scoring bonuses), studies completed (personal player objectives), if you ever won the friendliest fox award, upgrades on your personal player board, and extra tokens. The player with the most points wins!

Wulf Gaming offers products for sale before they are released. Many of these pre-order products will have a “maximum number per client” limitation. If this limitation exists, it will be clearly noted in the product’s description. If you order above the maximum amount per client, we will edit your order and refund the difference. That refund may also carry our 10% cancellation fee.   

Pre-order products must be paid for in full to place an order and reserve the product(s). We use several different distributors to fill orders and work very hard to fulfill every order. When we are unable to fill all orders, we will fill orders by the oldest order date first.

If you place an order that contains both a pre-order product and product that has already been released, we will hold your entire order until all the products are available to ship. If you wish to split your order into various shipments, we can do this upon request, but additional shipping costs may apply. You can also place separate orders - for example, 1 order with just the pre-order product(s), and 1 order with the in-stock items you would like to ship now.

Release dates for pre-order products are estimated release dates. These dates change often based on manufacturer and production delays, shipment delays, and other delays out of our control. We will do our best to update estimated release dates as we get information, but please be aware that these dates do change often.

Cancellations/Refunds

If you have placed a pre-order and would like to cancel before shipment, you can do so but a 10% cancellation fee applies. That fee will be deducted from your refund amount. We can also provide a 100% full refund of store credit as another option.

If we are unable to fill your order due to fulfillment issues by our suppliers, we may choose to waive our 10% cancellation fee and offer a full refund. This decision will be made on a case by case basis by the sole discretion of Wulf Gaming.

Please contact us at support@wulfgaming.com if you have any additional questions about our Pre-Order Policy.
