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!

Simple 2-player fun

War and Sheep is very light for a Gamer. For the rest of the world, its a fine two-player game.

If you're looking for a quick game to fill time with or to introduce a newbie to gaming, tbis is a good one.

Cute, fun. Good combination of luck and strategy.

Not very complex, but fun!

I like sheep. That's why I bought this game. But the game itself is a lot of fun! This is a very silly game about feeding your sheep the best grass and keeping them away from hungry wolves. There are also cards thrown in to the mix which add random events that keep the game interesting.

A lot of luck is involved, and not a huge amount of strategy, but if you're looking for a colorful, fun, silly game to play with a friend, I'd recommend 'War and Sheep' any day.

War & Sheep: A Quick Review

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!
