This is basically a card game for 2-4 players. Each player attempts to gain animals, which in the beginning are randomly placed in a play area open to all players. Players play animal cards around the play area, in one of three positions. Each position will contain 2 random animals. Players will eventually play 3 animal cards to each position. When a position has cards played around it by all players, the players compare their cards played to the other players' cards. Animal cards are added to the actual types of animals that are at the location, and the result will complete a sort of poker hand, using animal combinations rather than numbers or suits. For instance, a player may play 3 horse cards on a location where there are already 2 horse figures. The result is the highest combination in the game, 5 of one type of animal. Horses sit atop the animal heap, in terms of strength of hand (sort of the ace in cards). So 5 horses is the highest hand possible. That player would then win the 2 animal plastic figures at that location, and would add them to his own pen.

There are six animal types, all represented by small plastic figures and six types of cards. One type is indeed a black sheep. Each figure has a small number, from 1 to 3, etched into the bottom of the figure. Animals are randomly placed in the beginning, so you don't find out what value your animals have until you win them. As animals are won, they are randomly replaced by the remaining available animals. At the end of the game, you add up the point values on the bottom of all your animals, and subtract the values on the black sheep. You then determine if anyone earned certain bonus points, then add the final point totals to determine the winner.

My wife and I love playing this game. It has just enough strategy to keep the game interesting, but enough randomness that you never know how it will play out.
