Battle Sheep is an abstract strategy game. The players set up the board in any configuration they choose. Each player has a stack of sheep that they can only move in a straight line as far as they can. Players must leave at least one sheep and move at least one sheep. The goal is to get more pastures than other players. So the strategy comes into play as players try to block opponents and keep themselves from being blocked.
Sabrina didn't like the game, (though I hope she will when she is a little older). Alex said he loves it. Frank and I both like it. I am very glad to add it to our growing collection of board games.
Later Frank and Alex played two games of Chess.
