The cards in the game allow you to do several actions during your game turn. The actions include placing cute plastic bunnies on the game board to show control individual squares; placing additional resources on particular squares (that you control) to increase the "wealth" of individual squares; building cities (yes, bunnies have CITIES in this game!) on individual spaces to increase the "strength" of a particular square you control. There are also cards called "parchments" and "treasures" that allow end-game scoring opportunities for set collection (treasures for example) of having the "most of (x)" at the end of the game!
The point of the game is to create "fiefs" to score victory points. A "fief" is a collection of squares, controlled by your bunnies, that are connected orthaginally to each other (no diagonal connections allowed!). A fief can be as small as one square or as big a 40 connected squares! Fiefs will score victory points at the end of each of the four rounds (meaning they can be expanded upon as the game progresses). The worth in VPs of a fief is a simple formula of multiplying a fief's "wealth" times it's "strength."
In Bunny Kingdom, a fief's "wealth" is the number of DIFFERENT resources it produces; multiple resources of the same type (say carrots) only count ONCE! So diversity is rewarded. A Fief's "strength" is measured by the number of CITY TOWERS within the fief. Cities in Bunny Kingdom range in strength from one to three. The cool city minis in the game have 1-3 towers to show the level of each city. So, a fief that produced three (3) different resources and had three (3) levels of city towers would be worth 9 VPs. A fief that had only resources and no cities produces ZERO VPs and visa versa. Balance is the key. Each fief scores EVERY round, so it's possible to keep improving every fief every round for massive scores!
The game ends after four rounds, and final scoring takes place. That's where the 'parchment' and "treasure" cards can really add and compound your score! We all scored near of over 200 (yes, TWO HUNDRED) points in our first game! And the winner came from dead last to win via clever collection of key parchment cards that really allowed her to score a TON of points right at the end of the game! For such a seemingly light game, Bunny Kingdom can be surprisingly strategic!
All in all, Bunny Kingdom is, at it's core a great game. The theme is totally silly, but fun (if you like bunnies), and the artwork is gorgeous and the production is your typical Iello Games high quality.Bunny Kingdom is easy to teach and plays in under 90 minutes! All in all, this game should be a slam dunk....
....the game is ALMOST (hence the loss of a star. I almost took off TWO stars...) completely ruined by one VERY BAD design decision! The game board is TOO SMALL! Yes....TOO SMALL! The very nature of the game, the placement of dozens and dozens of minis to show control of the board, means that the game board quickly becomes INSANELY cluttered! Almost to the point that it's impossible to get a clear idea of who's winning and how well you are doing! I am not kidding on this!! If you have AP, this game will give you fits! The small board also makes scoring INSANELY slow and tedious! It almost takes as long to figure out end of round scoring as it does to actually play the round! And end-game scoring?? ARGHHHHHH!!!!!
It's so frustrating to have to slam an otherwise solid game, but I have to be honest. Some people will HATE this game! And I completely understand why. But if you have TONS of patients, and don't mind the poor design of the board, much fun awaits you. But, I fear this game just might have torpedoed itself. I know about 1/3 of my game group wont touch it, even after they admit it's a solid game! But that small board....
What a shame.
I'm always looking for new games to play and the theme of this game caught my eye and took a look. After a few reviews and a quick video I was interested.
The artwork is nice, the layout is great, and the player involvement and interaction is well balanced. It can be cut throat and competitive as well, so dont let the cute little bunnies fool you!
I don't have much to complain about and my reasons for the 4 star and not 5 are minor but still enough to bring it down a star.
I did receive the smaller board with my copy of the game, which isn't terrible, but I can see how some people could complain about it. Iello offers the larger board on their website for free but the shipping is hefty which is kind if a bummer.
The box organization isn't terrible, but not the best either. They give you individual bags for your bunny pieces and a cheap bubble bag for the cities but nothing for the punch out pieces or for the cards. Which there are a lot of cards and they could get flopped around pretty easily.
Over all, my complaints don't break the game and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a relatively quicker game for nearly any gamer. The theme is fun, as mentioned before, the artwork is nice and gameplay is fun.
Really happy with the game overall!
