SHEEP! is a simple yet addictive card game which is great for wasting a few spare minutes. Sheep cards are placed down 3 at a time with 3 fence cards underneath. The objective is to uses the fence cards to box in the sheep as efficiently as possible.

Fence cards with the same or higher number than a sheep card will remove that card - however, there's only a set number of fence cards, so trying to use as low numbered fence cards as possible is the main tactic. Cancelling out a sheep card with a fence card of the same number will also get you bonus points.

I'm sure I've seen this type of card game before but I can't for the life of me remember what it's called. Alex describes it as a "sheep-y version of Solitaire" but I don't think it's Solitaire exactly... If anyone has any ideas, feel free to put me out of my misery.
