Unstable Unicorns: A strategic card game that will destroy your friendships... but in a good way.
WHAT DID YOU GET YOURSELF INTO?
Start with a Baby Unicorn in your Stable, and begin building your Unicorn Army. Each Magical Unicorn comes with a special power, but don’t underestimate the power of Basic Unicorns! Use Upgrades and Downgrades to protect and build your stable (or attack other players MUAHAHAHA). Instant Cards stop other players from laying down a card, so they’ll either be your best friend or your worst enemy. The first person to complete their Unicorn Army wins!
Gather all Baby Unicorns from the deck and place one in the Stable of each player. Place the rest of the Baby Unicorns in a stack. This will be your Nursery. Shuffle the remaining cards and deal five to each player. The rest of the stack will be your Draw Pile.
Whoever is wearing the most colors is obviously the unicorniest, so they go first!
WHAT TO DO ON YOUR TURN
Turns go clockwise around the table, and each turn is made up of four phases.
Beginning of Your Turn - If any of your cards has an effect that happens “at the beginning of your turn,” you may use that effect now. If you forget to do it before you draw, you miss out on using that effect.
Draw Phase - Draw one card from the Draw Pile.
Action Phase - Play one card from your hand or Draw one more card from the Draw Pile.
End of Your Turn - Discard down to the hand limit. (If you are holding more than seven cards.)
HOW TO WIN
The first person with the required number of unicorns in their Stable wins! They are the Righteous Ruler of All Things Magical. Everyone must bow down to them.
