We were contacted by Dan at Ninja Star Games and asked to showcase their new game currently on Kickstarter, Wolf & Hound. Naturally, we said yes! Wolf & Hound is a partnership game where players work in teams to outsmart their opponents by being the last team to have sheep left in their pasture. Through the manipulation of both the wolf and the hound using cards, players maneuver their way to victory. The game looks like a fun, casual game that would be great to play with kids!
From the Wolf & Hound campaign:
“Wolf & Hound is a 2 versus 2 partnership game. Your goal is to protect you and your partner’s sheep from being chased away by the evil wolves. You will win the game if one of your opponents loses all his or her sheep first.
To start the game, team members will sit across from each other. Each player will start with 3 sheep in their pasture, and 4 cards in their hand.
Each turn you will play one card from your hand which will move the wolf or the hound. Where the wolf or the hound moves to determines the fate of your sheep. If there is a wolf in your pasture at the start of your turn, then the wolf will chase away one of your sheep. Rest assured though, if there is a hound in your pasture at the start of your turn, then he will rescue the lost sheep and bring it back to your pasture.
After you play a card, you will draw a card. Then the game continues to the player to your left. This continues on until one player loses all his or her sheep, or until the draw deck is depleted and players play all their cards.
Move the wolf and the hound wisely to protect you and your partner’s sheep, and chase away your opponents’ sheep!
