Welcome to Battle Sheep, the fierce farming game where opposing sheep herds go to head to fluffy head in a strategic battle the whole family will love!
The goal is to occupy the most pastures with your sheep. On their turn, players split a stack of their sheep and move a portion as far is it can go in a straight line to a new pasture. Watch out for sneaky sheep and plan your moves carefully to fence out your foe!
In this two-player abstract strategy game Splits, players start the game by constructing the board from eight identical four-hex tiles, then each player places her tall stack of discs on one of the border hexes. Players take turns removing some number of discs from the top of one of their towers and moving that stack of discs as far away as it can go in a straight line from that tower. A player must leave at least one disc behind when moving, so the board gradually fills and movement opportunities vanish. When a player can't make a move, she loses.
A different playing board is assembled before every game, so Battle Sheep is full of new challenges every time you play!
Suitable for ages 7 to adult, Battle Sheep is a game for 2-4 players, and takes about 15 minutes to play.
