BattleGoats is a goat filled modern combination of classic card games like Memory and War. Players alternate turns in card battle to determine a winner using the highest number value. Number values change as the game goes on. The person with the last card in play wins.

How to Play

Each player will get a random Hero and recruit an army of goats to battle with.

To build an army, all players draw 8 additional cards from the deck at random. Any cards not drawn are set aside and not used for that game.

With 9 cards in hand, each player lays them out face down in a 3×3 pattern to set up their battlefield.
