This game is from the makers of Killer Bunnies and if you've played that game you'll probably recognize a similarly somewhat random quality of the play here. The main "action" of the game involves laying overlapping popsicle-like multicolored sticks ("fences") around sheep to fence them in. Because there are specific rules about how the fences and their colors line up, completing a fence sometimes results in some (ahem) "creative" subtle shifting of the sticks. Each player has a secret goal of having a particular 5 sheep fenced, which means that you can unintentionally cause someone else to win if you fence a sheep both of you need, but it's their final sheep. Also, because it is possible for more than one person to complete their set at the same time, there are a number of tie-breaker rules. These situations add to the feeling of randomness, but also the light-heartedness/kid-friendliness.
Then you, my friend, have hit the jackpot.
In Mother Sheep, you scatter cute plastic sheep across the table, so they are randomly placed. Sheep are soft and rubbery, so you can tell mum, wife or other concerned householder that no tabletop dents will be incurred.
Then, you try to fence in the sheep with colourful lollypop sticks.
Sounds fun? It is. Mother Sheep takes about two minutes to learn, and then you're away.
It's not a beautiful game, and the lollypop sticks are sadly made of bendable cardboard rather than durable wood, but it works and it's fun, especially if you've always dreamed of being a farmer.
Be warned, serious gamers, this is no Agricola. It's a kid's game, and I'd say suitable for 5+ (or even younger, depending on how much they enjoy games and can sit and concentrate). Also, it doesn't make any sense that you have to give each sheep a separate field. Dear game designers, did you not know that sheep are social animals?
Even so, the plastic sheep will win your heart.
