Overview

Someone's been stealing Old McDonald's cows… it's you! In Invasion of the Cow Snatchers, you pose as a UFO pilot and fly over a farmer's field to abduct specimens (magnetic tokens) using your best spaceship (magnet).

You'll need to use keen analytical analysis to abduct the animals since the pasture is littered with obstacles like hay bails, fences, crop rows, a barn, and a silo. Hitting any of the barriers means you've failed your mission and have been demoted in the alien air force to peeling space potatoes.

So strap on your thinking cap and plan a flight path that gets you and all the cows back to the mother ship safely.

Collect the cows

When you’re behind the stick of a flying saucer, you've got a job to do: beam up bovines! But being a livestock abductor isn't a cakewalk; you've got to figure out how to collect your cows while avoiding all of the obstacles on the farm.

To begin, pick one of the puzzles on the challenge card and set up the board so that it matches the puzzle. Then set the transparent lid over the board and get your UFO hovering. Now you've got to use spatial reasoning and logic to pick up your cows in the correct order so that they can make it over the barns, crop rows, fences, hay bales, and silo. Make sure to save the bull (the red token) for last—they have a temper!

Collect the cows to win!

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: How is this related to Laser Maze and Gravity Maze?

Answer: All three games are published by ThinkFun and rely on 1-player logic puzzles but are otherwise unrelated.

Question: How does it work?

Answer: There's a magnetic attraction between the UFO and the cow discs; it doesn't rely on electricity (or tractor beams) at all.
