Product Description

In their quiet pasture, two rival herds of sheep face off in order to graze the best patches of grass... all the while keeping watch so as not to be devoured by the wolves that prowl the area. In this seemingly bucolic world, nothing will stop these sheep from waging war without mercy... Baaaaaa!

War & Sheep: A Quick Review
May 24, 2006

War & Sheep

War & Sheep by Bruno Cathala (Shadows over Camelot, Mission: Red Planet, and many more) is one of the funniest games I have played in a long time. Sure it was never in the running for the coveted Spiel Des Jarhes – the German Board Game of the Year award, but it is a very simple, very fun game laden with an odd sort of humour I find very appealing.

The clever movement system for the sheep and wolves inspires some interesting tactical manoeuvres, and the special ability cards throw in a fun and very wacky element.

This is not the best 2 player game ever made, but it is heavy with theme and that theme is hilarious, and carried all the way through the game – even reading the rules can inspire the odd giggle.

Playing this game is definitely an enjoyable experience, sometimes tactical, sometimes challenging, and always fun. If you require a fun little game to play after a few drinks have been imbibed, or a game to inspire a little laugh every so often, then this game will serve that purpose well.

If you are interested in this game, or own it already, check out the ‘Ideal Game Library’ on the website of Bruno Faidutti for some brilliant pictures of an enlarged version of this game – and a photo of the game designer Bruno Cathala dressed as a shepherd!

 
 
 
 
 
Do not waste yor money on this one.

There are really great 2 player games out there like Rosenkoenig, Lost Cities, Tom Tube.... This game is boring. Everyone is happy when this one is over.
 
 
 
 
 
Relatively random outcome
September 04, 2004

Yes, you can use your smarts to make progress, but there are certain plays/cards in the game that can completely turn the game upside down. My wife and I played it several times and, each time, the person who won doesn't really feel like they had anything to do with it. In which case, what's the point?

It is cute to look at though.
