Shepherd’s Voice

How to Play

Pair everyone up.
Blindfold one person from each pair and have him/her stand in the middle of the room.
These are the sheep.

Scatter up the others and have them stand at the edge of the room.
These are the shepherds.

Ask all the sheep to turn 3 rounds on the spot.

On “Go”, the shepherds will call out to their respective sheep, to give them instructions to walk towards them. (No running allowed.)

The first pair of sheep and shepherd to reunite wins.

Switch roles and repeat.


The Good Shepherd Box ProductIn The Good Shepherd card game, players must try to get the highest scoring Sheep Cards and Pasture Cards. But watch out! Other players will be looking to “Wolf” your cards and “Stampede” your hand. Will you have a Shepherd to protect your flock?
