Killer Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic Carrot
This card game has lively, animated bunnies looking to conquer the world any way they can. With a bit of skill and luck, the game's object is to eliminate your opponent's bunnies while keeping your bunnies alive, collecting carrots along the way and keeping an eye out for the carrot thief. Booster packs are available for Killer Bunnies, which keeps the game fresh. It is recommended for those with a sense of humor aged 12 and older and takes about 90 minutes per game.
Players are armed with weapons of destruction such as anti-matter raisins, curry-spiced poppadoms and bittersweet chocolate-covered, boiling tar. Their aim is to keep other players from winning the game. Negotiation is key to staying alive and defending your bunnies with magic spatulas and other special cards. The game ends when the last large carrot card is drawn.
The setting for this game is medieval Japan, where players participate in capturing key figures such as Buddha, High Helmet and Rice Field. At the start of Samurai, players are given tokens corresponding to a range of influential status against a certain force. Each player takes turns placing his force tokens on a designated space around the city or village. Players must skillfully position their forces to gain the majority by surrounding the cities and villages to capture figures.
The goal is to have the most figures in one category and retain control of most of the remaining figures. The game ends when the last figure is captured or if there are four tied figures. Samurai game time is about 45 minutes when playing with three people and is recommended for those 10 and older.
