Once again, the hunter prowls the forest. All the animals flee in terror! Well, not really. Only a dumb animal would call attention to itself. In this forest, the animals are smart, otherwise their heads would be decorating the hunter's mantelpiece. These animals just casually saunter away, while convincing the hunter that he must be looking for something else. "Are you hungry for rabbit, Mr. Hunter? Well, you see, I'm a moose. Oh, no, not a moose with antlers like that..."
Players take on the roles of rabbits and moose. One player, acting as narrator, lays down cards that indicate which animals are most likely to get away. The other players use their hands to make rabbit ears or moose antlers of various shapes in an effort to look like an animal the hunter won't shoot. When the narrator turns over the hunter card, the other players freeze, and the narrator scores each animal according to the cards. Players advance their rabbit and moose figures along the forest trail, distancing themselves from danger based on how well they scored. Then a new player takes the role of narrator and starts the next round.
The game ends after everyone has been narrator two or three times, and the player whose figures are farthest ahead wins.
Bunny, Bunny, Moose, Moose is a party game for up to six players lasting approximately 20 minutes. And while the hunter strolls through the forest the rest of the players show with their hands on their heads what sort of a bunny or moose they currently are and spectators enjoy themselves equally well.
It's hard to take a game seriously if it has a title like Bunny Bunny Moose Moose. This zany party game from versatile designer Vlaada Chvatil is indeed full of silliness, and if ever you wondered whether the guy who designed the civilization heavy-weight Through the Ages had a lighter side to his personality, this game sure proves it.
Basically the concept is that a changing set of cards is on the table, which earn points when players match the pictures on the cards with actions like making antlers or rabbit ears, or poking out their tongue. Yes it's that crazy, and can make for some incredibly hilarious scenes. One player reads a poem and turns over cards as he does so, forcing other players to adapt their chosen hand signals in an effort to earn as many points as possible. When he stops, you score points according to how many matches you have.
There's certainly room for clever play, and the person who can think quickly and adjust their actions accordingly is going to have the best chance of winning. The real challenge with Bunny Bunny Moose Moose is the entry point needed to understand the rules and enjoy it, although fortunately there are ways to simplify the game for new players by eliminating certain cards or adjusting some rules. There’s no doubt that Bunny Bunny Moose Moose is a fun game, and you only have to look at title of the game, the artwork on the components, and the diagrams in the rulebook to see that! Watching others play the game can be particularly hilarious.
