Publisher's Game Description: A struggle is raging in the quiet hillside pastures! The meadows are crowded, forcing you, the shepherds, to fight for every blade of grass - an acre here, a field there - to feed your tiny, wooly sheep. You must continually expand your pastures to feed your flocks. But watch out! You must be ever vigilant to keep your sheep safe from the marauding, hungry wolves that roam the forests at the pastures edge!

BGG Tom Vasel's review
BGG Gilles Kutten:"Now this is a FANTASTIC game!!!!!!! Rated 10 over 10!"
BGG Devon T:"Simple. Cute. Elegant balance of rules. Yet surprisingly deep strategically. Most popular with my female friends."
BGG JP LaChance:"Tons of fun for all ages. Playable by a 6yr old."
BGG Andrew MacLeod:"A very strategic game for one that has such simple rules! A young child (my seven year old niece, for example) can catch on to it quickly, while the older strategists (myself and her 18 year old brother) can nit-pick at tactics, while ignoring what the 7 year old is doing: she won, by the way!"
BGG Robin Levins:"I found this to be the most light-hearted "hostile" game I've ever played. Great fun!"
BGG Erwin Lau:"My kids can get the idea of try hard to enclose their sheeps. However, they are not good at screw others. Furthermore, we play with obeying turn order even for Wolves & Hunters and Announce Identities. My son always asks more of it."
BGG Kermit Rickenberg:"Great with the kids and fun among the adults. Love the double sided tiles!"
How To Play: Wooly Bully is easy to learn. You place large square tiles representing terrain in an effort to build the largest pasture for your sheep, while thwarting the efforts of other players. The twist is this: since all players keep their identity (color) secret - no one knows which sheep are yours - until you decide to tell them!
You must place your plots of land (tiles) on the table in order to build your pasture. You may use the forests, instead of fences, as borders, but beware - they can be infested with hungry wolves lying in wait for your helpless flock.
It's up to you to place your tiles at the right moment, and in the best layout to create the largest enclosed pasture. But don't be too greedy - if you're not careful, your field may grow so large that you'll never be able to close it!
