This is a fun casual game that will probably especially be a hit with families as it is simple enough for even young kids to grasp but complex enough to keep adults entertained (my typical gaming group is all adults and we find it sufficiently amusing when in the mood for light-hearted play). The components are well made, although I would like for there to have been some black sheep tokens to go with the black sheep on the cardboard depictions (perhaps a Sharpie...?). The game play is simple if a bit free-form (which allows for some creativity and shenanigans) but that's part of the fun.

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.

Are you looking for a game that's fun to play, includes the cutest plastic sheep you've ever seen (with names like Langston, Dusty and Tabitha), and that features fences that look like colourful lollypop sticks?

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.

Uses strategy and geometry to return runaway sheep to the pen. Can be played cooperatively or cut-throat style. I recommend it for grade 1 and up.
