If you feel you're getting stuck on some of the smaller maps:
- Focus on sheep delivery; those are the tougher pawns to move - Never be afraid to split up a shepherd and his sheep - Take some time to see which pawns the rules cards are focussing on. Keep them in mind through the game. Just focus on one or two if you like, and advise your teammates when you see a move which can utilize that pawn. - Don't Panic!
