In Sheep-Boom-Bah, your sheep have wandered into an active minefield. Your goal is to guide them safely back to their barn without accidentally stepping on a land mine. There's one problem...your path is unclear and you must move onto a tile to reveal what is beneath. Is it a barn? Is it a Safe Field tile? Is it a landmine? There's only one way to find out.
In the quest to help the herd find their barn, you must take two actions which will move your sheep throughout the field. In addition, you can use cards dealt to you that have unique abilities such as moving your sheep, stealing another player's sheep and even saving your own sheep. Gain points along the way for discovering safe tiles, diffusing landmines and finding barns. You will also score points at the end of the game for having sheep in your Barn and Barnyard. The player with the highest score wins the game!
Sheep-Boom-Bah takes place over a series of turns. Gameplay moves in clockwise order. On your turn, you must take two (2) actions. In addition, you also have the option to play or discard any number of cards from your hand. Actions and card play can occur in any order. If you play or discard cards, draw back up to four to end your turn.
The two types of Actions include:
1.) Move a sheep to a field tile. Flip over that tile and resolve its effect.
2.) Move a sheep from the barn to the barnyard on your player board.
A player can choose whether or not to play cards on their turn. If cards are played, the used cards are placed into a discard pile next to the draw pile. Some important aspects of card play to keep in mind:
END GAME AND SCORING
Once a player has removed all of their sheep from the field, the remaining players take one more turn. Then the game is over.

Sheep-Boom-Bah has been in development for over a year. During this time we had a chance to take the game to various conventions to play-test and demo. Over this time, we've gotten some great feedback and suggestions that went into making this a truly exciting game. We were even fortunate enough to win "Tabletop Game of the Year" at Gameacon 2018. Here are some of the events that we attended:
We are a board game design & publishing company run by brothers, Bob & Ryan Craig. We aim to deliver high quality, family friendly games that blend strategy and a dash of chance.
Last year we were fortunate enough to have our first game, Monster Highway, funded on Kickstarter. In this game, players are trying to escape a nuclear meltdown and a radioactive monster by building roads and driving their car to their home base.
The game was manufactured and delivered to our backers on time. We have been happy to receive pictures and emails of the game in play with friends and family. It has even won several awards including: Gameacon's Crystal Award for "Tabletop Game of the Year" and the Inquisitive Meeple's "Hidden Gem" award.
We have taken everything we learned from Monster Highway and applied it to Sheep-Boom-Bah. You can expect the same high quality in the game components, easy to learn rules and quick game play. The addition of unique game mechanics has made Sheep-Boom-Bah a game that has exceeded our expectations.
There are a lot more exciting games scheduled to be released in the near future! Follow along with us on social media or sign up Here to subscribe to our newsletter to learn more.
