Gameday First Play – Battle Sheep
Battle with Sheep… or not.
Just move them a bit.
In Battle Sheep, players start the game by constructing the board from identical four-hex tiles, then each player places his/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 stacks, moving that new stack of discs as far away as it can go in a straight line. Players must leave at least one disc behind when moving, so the board gradually fills up and movement opportunities become more and more scarce. The player occupying the most spaces at the end of the game wins!
…and that’s how you play the game.
We weren’t playing that you have to move your stack ALL the way to the end of the board in a straight line but it was still fun.
There aren’t too many abstract games like this that are quick and fun and play more than 2 players so this was nice.
It has that every move is both an attack and defend feel like Kamisado but less so.
It’s one I’ve almost bought several times and I’m kinda glad I didn’t. I’ll prefer the re-playability of Pinata Party instead…
I’ll add a further update once I play with the correct rules.
