Ab in den Stall

SHeep Triplets


Animals in Farmer Bardo’s yard have escaped and players assist Hugo, the Dog, to get the animals back. Unfortunately, Farmer Bardo’s animals are very obstinate and can only be led back to the stables when assembled in triplets. So, all players try to get most animal triplets back to the stables.

The task cards showing animals and Hugo the Dog are displayed on the table, the animal cards are dealt evenly to all players. Each of the task cards shows one animal and a bonus of 3; each animal card shows one animal in the middle and two other animals - a bit smaller - to the left and right of the animal. All in all there are nine different animals - Chicken, Cow, Duck, Goat, Hare, Horse, Sheep, Pig and Turkey. In your turn you put one of your animal cards openly on the table. When three identical animals can be found on all visible cards, you quickly put your hand on Hugo the Dog and name the animal. If you are correct you take one of the animal cards for a victory points. IF you then can find three identical animals on the cards you have already collected, you receive the task card of this animal- The other two animal cards involved in the triplet are set aside and stacked. When all animal cards have been displayed once you reshuffle the stack and deal it to all players. When this has been done three times, you add your victory points - each animal card is worth one point and each task card scores three points. If you have collected most points, you win!

“Ab in den Stall” shows very nice drawings, the mechanism is simple and trains quick observation of image content and recognition of quantities.
