In Patou’che! each player is a shepherd who dreams of having the biggest flock of sheep. But beware of the wolf that is lurking around, he too likes sheep, but to eat them! In order to protect their sheep, the players can count on their faithful sheepdogs: the patous. The game ends as soon as a player has 6 sheep cards in his herd. The winner is the one who has the most sheep at the end of the game.

A cooperative mode also allows you to play all together against the wolf.

How to play?

The active player can roll the dice up to 3 times, keeping at least 1 die after each roll.
The wolf side moves the wolf, the sheep side wins a sheep and the paw side wins a paw…
Once the result of the dice suits the player, or after 3 throws maximum, the action of each die is applied.

Then comes the next player ‘s turn, in a clockwise direction.
