Wooly Bully is a game of sheep and shepherds; where players attempt to construct the largest enclosure possible of fields, forests and cities. You'll need to be careful about how you build your enclosures though, as the wolves are able to destroy your various enclosures. Each player's animal is secret at the beginning of the game, but the soonest you reveal it, the more points you get.
In Wooly Bully, the players use a tile-laying mechanic to develop their sheep enclosures. Unlike Carcassonne, players get a hand of five tiles to choose from, and are able to increase their hand size by matching edges and darwing additional tiles each turn.
In addition, Wooly Bully uses a hidden tile mechanic where players do not know what each players colours are till these are revealed. Players gain additional points for revealing their colour as well as ending their turn first.
Lastly, players have to watch out for their sheep as the Wolves can eat them. However, Hunters can stop and drive off these wolves, so knowing where and when to play the Hunters is important in Wooly Bully.
