Wild Wool (aka: Shave a Sheep)

Another $4 find at Value Village.

Not as impressive as Small World, but it's complete and in excellent condition, incredibly cute and perfectly suited for my young kids. Very pleased with this find as well.

---

Update/mini-review a few days later:

A highly underrated game. Reviews here seem rather tepid, but if you have kids involved then Wild Wool is a fantastic little game.

Yes, it can seem mean when children are forced to trade their sheep, or have the wolf come their way. It is often difficult for little people who are attached to their woolly little avatar to have something negative happen. But instead of that making this a poor game it makes the perfect learning experience.

My kids (3 and 5) need to improve their reactions to negative events - knowing that we can have fun even when we don't win, thinking about how others feel when we use the wolf, understanding social consequences of their choices (ie: they might be more inclined to use the wolf in response if attacked first). Wild Wool has been a perfect way to work on all of these concepts while still having a fun time together.

We have played the game every day since finding it, with a variety of people. Everyone loved it and our kids continually ask to play again. (For adults I would use some variant rules to emphasize the push-your-luck aspects a little bit... but since we've been playing with children we have only used the normal rules so far.)

Thrift purchase: another $4 find, not quite as impressive as Small World Underground but the LEGO sheep are very cute and I've got two young kids who will appreciate this one.

Great Fun little lego game that has your growing wool on your sheep, rustling other players' sheep, shearing the sheep and sending the wolf over to another player's sheep. Interestingly the wolf makes the sheep's wool fall off! All light hearted fun with a lego dice. Can be a bit too "take that" for younger children.

Minimal thrifting opportunities of late. Did have a chat with a couple of local gamers when they came into my shop & picked up Scotland Yard.

A trip to the next town to get irritated by imbeciles....erm, have a look for a couple of things to see if they were in any sort of sale & of course check the charity shops.
Very little of anything. It's possibly to soon after Christmas for the unwanted presents to be donated.
I did pick this up - for the Lego rather than the game. There's several useful pieces in here & a bunch of white blocks & tiles never goes amiss for winter scenes.

At this point, I was very happy to see that someone had abandoned a cart right next to the game aisle, almost as if they knew I would need it. I loaded up my games and added this little LEGO game. Not sure if it's any good, but if not, then it's LEGOs!

$2.24, Value Village.

And thus ends my mini-haul.

After Le Harve a friend joined us, with her bag full of sheep games, down the rabbit hole we went.

This one was sort of like a lego LCR style game, much better than LCR but roll a die and see what happens.

The die was really cool though and had interchangeable faces! This aspect was not used in the game, but thinking about how cool a game using alterable faces could be was fun.

Forgot that I found this also for $1.99, grabbed it off the cart. Missing one sheep, but everything else is there and assembled.

Ah, shaving. My directions weren't clear, so I ended up shaving more than I needed to (everything). And of course, now as it's growing back, itching in more places than I needed to ...

Read whatever you want into it, it was while shaving and immediately after, that I had the most stress, and felt the most threat to my masculinity. Kudos to my wife for totally dissipating my anxiety by saying "You can keep it like that, I don't mind it".

Man! One of my local Savers has sure jacked up the price of their Legos! So I had to snatch this game up while it was still marked for only $2.99!! I found 4 bags of legos by the toy section ripped open, with parts laying about. More than likely someone was pilfering the mini-figs. I mentioned it to a worker near the check out lane and she said, "Yeah, we try to police them as best we can, but it's spring break and we know kids are breaking them open."

I'm thinking to myself...why don't you hang all of the Legos near the counters then?!? Anywho...her's a pic of one of the ridiculously priced lego bags that wasn't torn open...



And Wild Wool was $2.24 with the 25% off.

Games, games and more games!
mbmbmbmbmb

My 3 year old has had a month with several new games - he's started to get really keen on games now, so I've been trying to move him on from preschool fare, to games where you actually have to make some decisions! He was given two games for his birthday from his aunt - Snakes and Ladders (and Octonauts version) and Rory's Story Cubes, which I still say isn't a game, but all three kids had a lot of fun with. He also was introduced to Misfits and Ramses Return by me, both of which have been played several times, but his favourite game by far, which he has requested over and over again, has been Shave a Sheep. I absolutely hate this game, but he thinks it's great, and I'm happy to play anything with him. I think the funny sound effects for the wolf eating sheep might have helped!!!

Review of Shave a Sheep

Will's Comments: Honestly, it is rare to see a game use sheep in its main mechanic. This game is definitely original. Just going off the standard rules, there is not much variety in how you play this game. For those looking for a new experience, you would most likely have to alter and/or add pieces to the game. Given what the game entails, this is great for families with small children. It also makes an interesting novelty gift for fans of LEGO.

Sarah's Comments: This one is definitely for kids. I'm much more likely to take the sheep and wolf and build a scene around them than to play this game.

This is the only lego game we play without the kids. We both enjoy this one too. Quick easy, to learn, and there is sort of a push your luck factor to complete your sheep for the automatic shave.
