The Fable set brings to life the puzzle from ancient folklore made famous by Lewis Carroll (author of Alice in Wonderland). Once upon a time, a farmer went to market and purchased a wolf, a sheep and a cabbage. On his way home, he came to the bank of a river and found a boat. But he had a dilemma; he could only carry himself and a single one of his purchases - the wolf, the sheep, or the cabbage - with each trip. If left on shore together, the wolf would eat the sheep, or the sheep would eat the cabbage. Use your analytical skills to help the farmer transport his goods to the opposite shore. Set includes 5 game pieces made from intricately cut beech wood.
