Cosmic Cows is a game that I grabbed simply because my youngest saw it and was very keen on it. It didn't look like it would be too simple and could be fun, so I was happy enough to add it to our collection. You open up the board and pop all the cow figures along the middle row, these figurines are nice and sturdy, so I know that they're going to last well. The aim of the game is to 'abduct' three of the cows before your opponent can, by rolling the dice and making wise decisions as to which dice to keep and which to re-roll. Because of the combinations needed to move a cow, this has a yahtzee feel to the game, which I liked as I enjoy dice based games.
You can play this in teams or two solo players, just make sure that if you're in teams that you take turns rolling and discuss your moves with each other. If you manage to get a cow into your win zone, it doesn't mean that it is safe, your opponent can still move your cow backwards, so it isn't a sure thing until you get all three in your win zone. Unfortunately, this does mean that the game can end up going on for quite awhile and I found myself getting quite board with the game and wishing for it to end. In the future, I will adjust the rules to make the game shorter because other than the length of time this was a fun enough game at the start.
