Hey Pa! There's a Goat on the Roof was a children's board game issued by Parker Brothers in 1966.


The game revolves around a game board featuring plastic farm-related items sticking out of it. Players move goat-shaped pieces around the board attempting to complete tasks that reward them with tin can pieces. The first player to move their goat onto the roof of the barn ends the game, and at that time whatever player has the most cans wins. Movement is determined by an included spinner which make the game purely on luck.


The main objective to the overall game is to get more cans than any other player. The player with the most cans win the game.
