Guide little creatures home through tactile movement puzzles!
Herd is a cozy solo puzzle board game
by Blaž Urban Gracar.
You solve puzzles by guiding Shepherds and Sheep home. You do this by sliding, jumping and stacking playing pieces on grids printed in the book.
Herd is still in development, but you can play the early access version!
You can download the PDF of the book to print it out. For the playing pieces, you can 3D print custom Herd figurines, modeled by Vojta Karen - or use and modify whatever you have at hand, like checkers pieces or Lego blocks! You can also play the game online in Google Docs, using a Google Slides adaptation.
The final version of the game will be available as a physical product - with a printed, spiral-bound book and 6 figurine pieces: 2 black Shepherds, 2 white Sheep, a domino Herd and an L-shaped Herd.

Herd wouldn't be what it is today without many kind people who offered feedback for the earlier versions. As the project grows, it proves itself more and more as something quite special: a block-pushing puzzle game, against all odds detached from devices and screens, supported and even enhanced by its physicality. Any help whatsoever would push Herd to reach its true potential.
