Animator Nick Park will be signing copies of his new board game, Fleeced! He will be at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, Unit 4, Clifton Heights, Bristol, BS8 1ED on Saturday 1st December 2007 1-2pm.
Shear fun and frustration. Fleeced! is the world's first and only sheep rustling board game.
Sheep have gone missing and players work their way around West Wallaby Street district seeking out the fugitive livestock. Then rustle them safely back home. It sounds easy, but beware…. the more sheep you rustle the more other rustling rascals will have their greedy eyes on your flock.
The game has been totally devised by Nick Park and Produced by PopCo, from Corgi International, in conjunction with Aardman.
Commenting on the board game, Nick Park told SFcrowsnest.com, “I’ve always loved board games and it has always been my ambition to create one. Once I had found an original gameplay formula - it was instantly clear that it had to be about sheep and sheep rustling. There are so many details and jokes for all ages to observe and enjoy - I wanted the game to be as original, fun and inventive as all the Wallace and Gromit movies.”
