Hi, not played yet, just got this in the post today and really looking forward to playing for the first time!

However, while thumbing through the cards I noticed a potential "thing" that I wanted to get clarification on.

Normally there is only one player per location, so a card like Nell the Sheepdog where everyone takes a sheep from their current location is fairly straightforward.

But after some cards, e.g. Evans the Song, more than one player can end up at the same location, so there needs to be an order for the sheep to be taken off the board, in case one of them gets a bonus for taking the last sheep from the area.

So, in what order should the players take their sheep? My guess is that it should be the active player first, followed by the other players in order. So for example, in a 3-player game, where all three players are at Grumbly Town (because of Evans the Song) and there are two sheep and a lost sheep token:
- the active player gets the first sheep
- the next player to the left gets the other sheep, the lost sheep token and the two bonus sheep from the stock
- the final player gets nothing

Is that correct?

Take 'em off in turn order, yes; active player then clockwise.
