Android app on Google Play

How do I play?

Play­ers choose their team; a herd of cows or flock of sheep, and attempt to out­wit their opponent.

You win by steal­ing your oppo­nents bail of hay, or by sim­ply knock­ing out every mem­ber of the oppos­ing team.

With a dif­fer­ent map gen­er­ated every time, no two bat­tles are ever the same.

How does it work?

You sim­ply make your move on your own device, and when you’re fin­ished a coded link will be gen­er­ated. Then you send that link back to your friend using any method you like, for example:

To play again just ask your friend to invite you to another game. If you want to chal­lenge a dif­fer­ent friend then you need to upgrade to the full ver­sion. That friend can then play for free, so only one player ever needs to have bought the full version.

This approach means you don’t have to setup yet another account and give away per­sonal infor­ma­tion to an unknown com­pany. It also means you never have to worry about servers going down and pre­vent­ing you from play­ing, you can sim­ply send your moves through a dif­fer­ent medium.
