There isn't any reviews out yet on BGG but you can read the rules here:

But to answer your question, there is nothing that would correlate between a hardcore game like Arkham Horror and this title.  So whether you would like it is up to you.  I play a lot of heavier games (if AH can truly be included in that category) but still like "mindless" kids' games like Los Mampfos or 'simple" games like Carcassonne.

It depends on the gamer as to if they like a game. I mean I played hardcore Yu-Gi-Oh for 7 years (since it came out in 2000) and now I play Kingdom Hearts which is just taking off the ground and really is completely different but I still like it.

But this game looks interesting, and thats all I'm saying on the matter cause I haven't come up with a definate opinion yet.

This game seems an intriguing blend of Old Maid, Hearts, and Poker played with plastic miniaturer barnyard animals.  I can see a lot of strategy in it coupled with the whimsey of the animals.  As a filler between heavier games, I think this has a lot of potential. I can imagine this geek getting a lot of fun out of it.

that does sound kinda fun. I've always liked a quick casual game like that. Munchkins, fist of dragonstones... problem is I get bored with them after about 20 plays. You see everything in munchkins... dragonstones lasts longer because you're really playing your opponent in an almost poker like way.

Simpler games like this make great "Beer & Pretzle" Games.

Add Alcohol, and watch hijinx ensue.

Despite the "cutesy" theme, Black Sheep is a game that adults can play.  It has a high luck factor though: if you draw the right cards at the right time you'll win - if you don't, you won't.

It is a light game but I thought it was good for kids.  It teaches them things they will use in other games when they get older. (set collecting/poker hands)
