From the manufacturer
Mad cows in England. Unexploded bombs in France.
You’re a savvy entrepreneur who’s found two problems with a common solution. Round up a herd of mad cows, give them a stirring pep talk, and march them through the bomb-riddled French countryside.
At the beginning of the game, players start the 'pot' by anteing 500 each. You will spend money to buy cows, and then earn more money when those cows find bombs and explode.
That’s the basic idea, but of course there are cards that steal cows, cows with special abilities, and even some cows that cost you more money when they explode.
At the end of each turn, you’ll roll the die to figure out which cow finds a bomb. This might be your cow or one of your neighbors.
If you manage to blow up your own cow, you’ll earn some extra money as well as the special ability of the city whose bombs you’re disposing of. After visiting 12 cities, your adventure is over, and the player with the most money wins!

The premise: Youve set your cows out to walk around French cities, to detect landmines and explode them (the cows have no agricultural value, because they have Mad Cow disease). You "play" your cows, and can play other cards like spies, "pull out a favorite card from the discard pile," etc.There is definitely some strategy involved. You roll a die to count and see which of your cows have exploded.
I know the game sounds dumb from my description. We usually play strategy games like Risk, Ticket to Ride, and Catan. This game only takes about 15 minutes to play, and we play the game a few times in a row if we have time. All four of us like the game. Highly recommend.
I paid full price for this item.
The outcome of the game is highly dependent on what cards you draw, but you can almost always "do something fun" on your turn. It's a lot like Quiddler in that the strategy is limited to "what can I do with the cards in my hand right now".
It's a good after-dinner kind of game and great for all ages!
When explaining, take care to mention that gaining cities aren't the real goal, its all about keeping your money and making more. Some times not spending a lot of money while others waste theirs can be a good strategy!
I played this with my 12 year old board gamer son, my non-gamer wife and it was good, and then again with my regular board gaming group - they picked it up in 10 minutes and we played a game in another 20-30. Quick 'filler' game and cute art and names. Although some of the bomber's eyes freak me out...
