What is Wolf & Hound?

Wolf & Hound is a 2 versus 2 partnership card game about protecting you and your partner’s sheep from bhaaad wolves!

You are a shepherd in the French Alps where wolves are becoming a problem, chasing your sheep away from your pasture. It is up to your reliable hound to go find your lost sheep and bring them back.

Each turn you will play a Number card which controls the movement of the Wolf or the Hound. Where the Wolf or the Hound moves determines the fate of your sheep. If there is a Wolf in your pasture at the start of your turn, then the Wolf chases away one of your sheep. If there is a Hound in your pasture at the start of your turn, then the Hound brings back the lost sheep.

Move them wisely to protect you and your partner’s sheep, and chase away your opponent’s sheep!
