You are on a quest to find an anthropomorphic carrot while battling hordes of cute bunnies wielding kitchen whisks, nukes, and cheese balls. Sound like a bad acid trip? Actually, it’s the Killer Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic Carrot card game!
Throughout the course of the game your main task is to collect the "magic" carrot, and to keep your bunnies alive. The catch is, you have no idea which carrot is the "magic" carrot until the end of the game. This forces you to make a mad dash to collect as many carrots and bunnies as possible while trying to screw your friends out of theirs. You can achieve this through diplomacy, treachery, or good old fashioned brute force.
Note: No bunnies were harmed in the making of this game.
Diplomacy is a large part of the Killer Bunnies experience. It's always easier to get things done when you work together, and if you are a really big douche bag, like these guys, its even easier to let another sap do all the work and then betray him at the last moment. A word to the wise though, you can't hide from karma...
So when you are ready to play, get together with friends and loved ones, or people you don't mind double-crossing, either way you can be sure to have a great time. Of course, you can also be sure that you will be ex-communicated if you do something like, say, obliterate everyone else's bunnies with meteors from outer space.
Hope it was worth it...
The major drawback of the game is that everything you do throughout the entire time of play ends with a lottery. If you are the one that owns the magic carrot (chosen at random) you reign victorious. But even if you have eleven of the twelve carrots, there is still the possibility that an opponent may win. This is nice if you draw a bad hand at the start and can't seem to get back on your feet. On the other hand, It's frustrating to dominate the entire game but then lose in the end..
Sometimes it's for the better
Some play a house rule version where each carrot card is worth a point value with the magic carrot being worth slightly more. This cuts back on the chance aspect of the game.
Also, each round may take anywhere from half an hour to over two hours! So make sure that you have plenty of time when starting up a game.
Killer bunnies is a great game to break out when a few of your friends come over, or you are spending a week with the family. There is no need to spend money trying to collect rare cards and 2-8 players can battle it out with one game. Just dont spend too much time playing because studies have shown that you will eventually change into these guys.
