Unstable Unicorns Kills with Cuteness
I was sold on Unstable Unicorns as soon as I saw the Basic Unicorn cards. Statistically, they're called basic because they don't have any of the special powers. But they're also basic in their own unique way, whether it's a flannel-wearing bearded hipster unicorn or one gleefully clutching her pumpkin spice latte.
That marriage of flavor and mechanics is present throughout Unstable Unicorns, which was produced through one of the most backed Kickstarter projects of all time. The cutesy but highly competitive casual game has two to eight players vying to collect a stable full of unicorns before anyone else. Gameplay is extremely simple and easy to learn. Each player starts with a hand of five cards, begins each turn by drawing a card, and then can play a card or draw an additional card.
