Cards Inc. has announced that it will release Fleeced, a new Wallace and Gromit sheep rustling board game, at Toy Fair in February. The boxed game will include a fleeced gameboard, character pieces, sheep whistles, a 'sheep dip' bag, sheep pieces, cheese cards, and sheep hideout cards. Players will try to collect fugitive sheep and get them back home, while keeping other rustlers from taking them away. The game was 'devised' by Nick Park.
Cards Inc. had previously announced license for movie cards and other products (see 'Cards Inc. Gets Wallace & Gromit').
The film DVD will be released in February (see 'Wallace & Gromit DVD in February'), providing another marketing backdrop for the Wallace & Gromit property, which has shown amazing legs over the years.
