About Battle Sheep

Mom Maven’s Thoughts
I played this game with 8 yo Matthew while I was babysitting him and we both enjoyed the game. It only takes 10-15 minutes to play the game so it is a great time filler game. We played several times and I watched Matthew improve as he went along. I could see him understanding the strategy more and more with each game we played. His parents said he talked about the game constantly when he got home, so I’d say it made a big impression on him.
When Matthew and his parents came over again, he and I played a game to show his parents and my husband how to play. Then Matthew played against the other 3 adults for several games. Matthew and his dad are both a bit ruthless when it comes to playing games and all of the adults enjoyed playing. I can’t wait til we have a chance to play with 4 adults.
The above picture is of the game box. All 4 adults that played the game felt that if we saw that box on the shelf at a store, we wouldn’t have given it a second look. It looks like a child’s game with the fluffy sheep prancing around. Anyone who overlooks this game is missing out because it is a lot of fun. We just wonder if it could be re-packaged to entice adults and families to want to purchase it.
