Opposing sheep herds are battling it out to secure the most pastureland in a strategy game that your whole family will love. Battle Sheep's tactical gameplay requires a player to think through his moves, at least two steps ahead, or the open pasture will quickly become filled with rival sheep, and he will be fenced out. Using both offensive and defensive moves, the player who captures the most pasture space wins the game.
Easy to learn and easy to play without being easy to win, Battle Sheep's ever-changing pasture boards allow for different and unique game playing areas each time. Your students can play several games in less than an hour, providing them multiple opportunities to apply new strategies from their previous game. A very durable game with high-quality components, Battle Sheep's 16 pasture boards are made of laminated card stock. The 64 sheep tokens are made of thick plastic.
