BGWS 036 – Shear Panic with the Lamont Brothers

Shear Panic is a light strategy game about managing the position of your sheep in a flock. (24:48)

This week on Board Games with Scott, sales host Scott Nicholson discusses Shear Panic – The Best Game Ewe Ever Heard and interviews the designers, Gordon and Fraser Lamont. In this 2-4 player light strategy game (with really nice components), players are manipulating a flock of sheep to achieve different goals. Each player has two sheep in the flock and is trying to either get them close to each other, move them toward a black sheep, or move them to the front or back of the flock.

This video on Shear Panic covers the Mayfair version of the game, which is very similar to the version published by 999 games (Panic in de Wei). The game has also been released by Zoch Verlag as Haste Bock?, which has some significant differences.
