Unstable Unicorns is the Awesome Card Game of Destructive Unicorns Gone Rogue!
The Unstable Unicorns card game raised an amazing $1.8 million dollars when it launched on Kickstarter. There can only be one reason for that…..this game is awesome! Unstable Unicorns and its expansion packs can be enjoyed over and over again by outwitting your opponents, exploring new worlds, and sharing good times with family and friends.
Unstable Unicorns is now a second edition strategic game that includes all new cards and something for every one; complete destruction and unicorns. You start with a baby unicorn. Cute right? Maybe, but even the baby unicorns are not safe in this game. Collect from over 20 magical unicorns, each with their own special power.
Build your army of one horned horses as fast as you can or you will be destroyed by someone who claims to be your friend. You can protect your stable by using your Magic Sound. Unless of course, someone has a “Neigh” card that sends the game into MADNESS!
The objective of the game is to collect as many unicorns as you can to be victorious and your inadequate friends will kneel in humility at your boastful victory!
You can purchase expansion packs to enhance the game that we will discuss below.
Unstable Unicorns Rules
How to deal the cards
When you open the Unstable Unicorn base game you should have three sets of cards; White backed cards, Black backed cards, and Reference cards. Make sure to always shuffle to destroy the evil plans of any would be cheater.
1. Give each player one of the White backed Baby Unicorn cards. Then, place the remainder face down in the middle of the players. This stack is known as the Nursery
2. Now deal 5 of the Black backed cards to each player. Place remainder stack in the middle of the players. This stack is known as the Draw Pile.
3. Now each player gets a reference card to remove any excuses of forgetting the rules (aka cheating)!
How to Play Unstable Unicorn
The person most dressed like a unicorn (brightly colored) goes first and turns are taken clockwise from there. The game is played in rounds and each turn is made up of four phases.
1. Look to your reference card for the words “Beginning of your turn” do the action it states first.
2. The draw phase is just as it states, draw a card from the pile. A trained monkey can make it this far.
3. The action phase is where you play a card from your hand or draw an additional card. The trained monkey may have a confused look on his face at this point but we are pretty sure he can get this done.
4. The fourth phase is the end of your turn. Hope you played it well! Just make sure you don’t exceed the hand limit of 7 cards or they will go to the Discard Pile.
Rinse and repeat for additional turns.
To win, you need to achieve the most Unicorns in your stable. For those of you playing with 2-5 players, you need 7 Unicorns to win, those playing with 6-8 players, you need to achieve 6 Unicorns in your stable.
