    Sheeping Around is a multiplayer (1v1) card dueling game about grazing and stealing sheep. The objective is simple: you gotta graze the sheep and call them home as a shepherd, or lure and steal them as a thief.

    There's three sheep on the board, and one of the players is the Shepherd and the other is a Thief. As a shepherd attach graze cards to sheep to graze, and when you're done, use "Whistle" to take them home. As a thief, attach lure cards to sheep to lure them and when they're lured, steal them away. The first person to get two sheep wins. But the trick part is all the other cards that make your opponents' lives harder. You can lay traps, guard sheep, reduce graze / lure values and use special bonus cards to your advantage.

    Every game you win gives you experience and coins, which count towards your level and allow you to purchase better cards. But as you level up, the opponents get stronger too. (The game automatically matches you with another player with similar experience.)

    Add deck-building and card collection, and you get the basic elements of a CCG. All in all, an exciting game that will make you ask your friends, “Will you sheep with me?"

    Thanks, I'm glad you like it. We're working hard to make the progression a lot better.

    We've heard that the gameplay using the base deck gets stagnant after a while, so we're working on making that better and lots of other changes as well.

    Thanks everyone who downloaded the game and helped us test it and make it bug free. We have about 300+ beta testers now and will be closing our beta soon.

    If anyone has some feedback on the game in general, they can comment on this forum or email me at info(at)fleon(dot)org.

    We are preparing the game to be release ready so keep your eyes out in this thread for more information.

    Thanks

    There is AI, but it is online only at the moment. In the future updates I have plans to release local multiplayer and offline versus AI; it depends on what majority of the players want.

    Hmmm... I hope I won’t be the only one to ask for offline AI (I spend a lot of time in the subway and I can’t always rely on the network to play)

    By the way, thank you for your answers ! It’s great to have news directly from the dev

    I am definitely buying this when it is release. Would like to vote for offline AI as well.
    Better than waiting for a person to take their turn or look for a good connection.

    I play games myself in the train while commuting to work and I hate it when the game disconnects you for a moment of lost signal. For this reason, Sheeping Around is optimized for low network and high latency situations, and keeps on trying to reconnect you back to the game if you lose connectivity.

    Offline, unranked matches will come a few months after release in the major content update, along with about 6 new characters and 20-30 new unique cards.

    The game is now featured worldwide (in 92 countries) on the App Store in the Coming Soon section on the Games page.
    Only 7 days remain until the official launch (also the duration while the 20% discount will remain valid)!

    It's kinda funny though how the Alien and the Fox are looking at each other. :p

    Somewhat late (but right in time before the release), but Sheeping Around now has an official trailer!
