Nobody wants cows covered in flies! Try to add a cow to the herd. If you can't, add the whole herd to your cowshed. Flies and all.Too many flies? Very unfortunate - and you'll lose this udderly fun game!

|Inside the box are 2 decks of cards and a light-activated device that 'Moos' at you when activated! A bit of a gimick but can be used to signal the end of the game. Basically, the cards are numbered from 1 to 16. There are green, yellow, orange and blue cards which have in them 0,1,3 and 5 flies. The object of the game is to end up with as few flies as possible.
To start, a card is played to the table and the next player plays a card either lower than or higher than the card just played and so on. When a player cannot play, or chooses not to play, they take the 'herd' and place it face down in front of them and play a new card. If you place the draw deck onto the device in the box, when the last card is drawn the box 'Moos' and whoever takes the next 'herd' ends the round. Game ends when 100 is reached.
What adds interest to the game are the special cards with 5 flies. When these are played, the direction of play may be reversed. Two of these are blocking cows, numbered 0 and 16, which blocks off that end of the herd. An 'Acrobatic cow' can be placed on top of a card with the same number and another can be inserted into the herd where a number is missing.
As I said, there are 2 decks, which are not quite identical. With 3-5 players you play with the green deck, and with 6-10 players you play with the yellow deck as well which has extra special cow cards.
2 players can also play and instead of having one herd on the table, you have 3 herds on the table and is just as much fun as playing with more. This is a great filler and a lot of fun.
