Unicorns... elegant and majestic creatures! Well, not in the Queendom, where they are silly animals that breed like rabbits.
Kill the Unicorns is a blind bidding and collection card game. You play as one of the Queendom’s unique characters - catch as many unicorns as you can, ideally without capturing a smelly Unicorn or a Pigicorn!
A long time ago, far far away, a Queendom was overrun with thousands of pesky unicorns relieving themselves on private property, eating endangered plant life and subsequently farting a lot! As unicorn gas is toxic, air pollution in the Queendom drastically increased, seriously impacting the local environment. This contamination created microclimates around the Queendom: it started raining sugar and candy, making everything sticky. Too kind to take action, the old Queen left the matter with her malicious daughter. Eager to prove her leadership to the citizens, the Princess declared four days dedicated to hunting unicorns annually, and everyone was invited! This was great news for the gnomes, who ran an illegal global black market for unicorn parts. This annual hunt meant that they didn’t have to waste time catching the beasts themselves - a difficult thing to do - and could instead buy them cheapy from the citizens!
Goal of the game: Capture the most beautiful unicorns, then sell them on the gnome’s black market, while avoiding the traps from your opponents. The game lasts 4 days / rounds. At the end of the 4th round, players count their victory points by adding the value of each unicorn card and the color collection points.
Gameplay: The game is played in 4 rounds, with each hunt having a number of unicorns up for grabs! Each player chooses a character, uses their scheme cards to mess with the other hunters and then places their hunt cards face down to bid for the currently hunted unicorn. The highest bidder wins unless the revealed scheme card states otherwise! Once all Unicorns have been caught, hunters use their remaining hunt cards as currency to purchase items on the black market in order to increase the value of their captured unicorns, or disguise the fact they’re trying to pass off a Pigicorn as the real thing!
