It’s Sheepy Time!

November 29, 2020 - 8:22am

Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG) has announced a new game coming in May 2021, Sheepy Time.  The game is designed by Neil Kimball with artwork supplied by Zoé Plane.  It plays 1-4 players, ages 10 and up, in about 30-45 minutes.

In Sheepy Time, the players represent the Dream Sheep - you know, the sheep that people count before falling asleep.  Each time the players (as the Dream Sheep) jump the fence, they help their people fall asleep faster.  But beware, there are Nightmares in amongst the dreams!

On a player’s turn, they will play a card from their hand, potentially triggering special effects.  Every time they complete a circuit of the circular board, they jump a fence, possibly accumulating points as they do so.  However, when a player refills their hand, if they draw a Nightmare card they must resolve it.  If that Nightmare crosses their path, their human is scared awake, costing the player points.

Sheepy Time is due out May 14, 2021.  If you would like more information or to see pictures of the game, be sure to check here.
