Violet Bunny Bits

Download PDF FileHello and welcome back to the wonderful world of Killer Bunnies®. We would like to thank you for your purchase and assure you that no actual bunnies were hurt in any way during the creation or production of this game.

Getting Started

Unwrap all of the cards. Large cards with a Violet Truculent Bunny on the back are shuffled into the Draw Pile that should already contain Blue, Yellow and Red cards. Add the four new Carrots to the sixteen already for sale at Kaballa’s Market two. The small Defense Cards are shuffled and placed face down near the Rooney’s Weapons Emporium Two Starter Card. The small Carrot Cards are shuffled into their respective pile.

Did you notice that cool new Clear 20-sided die? Some of the new cards (as well as some older cards) will require using the die. These cards will have a capital letter T in the bottom square on the right border of the card.

Game Mechanics

Killer BunniesDEFENSE CARDS
Players may purchase Defense Cards from Rooney’s Weapons Emporium Two. These are used to eliminate the effect of a weapon for a particular player. Defense Card Units must match or exceed the level of the weapon that a player wishes to eliminate.

For example, a Weapon Level 7 may be eliminated by simply using a Defense Card with 7 Units. Another example might be a Weapon Level 8 that may be eliminated by using Defense Cards that add to 8 Units such as a 3 Units and a 5 Units card. In the last example, a player may also use a Defense card that exceeds the weapon level such as an 11 Units card. A player may not take “change” from the Defense Card pile if the Units used to defend against a weapon exceeded the weapon level. Once Defense Cards have been used, they are discarded and may not be sold again. Defense Cards may only be used before a player rolls for the weapon.

Defense Cards protect only one player’s bunnies from harm. When a player uses Defense Cards against a multi-target weapon (such as Clubbin’ Baby Seals), all of the bunnies in The Bunny Circle belonging to that player are protected. Adjacent players may still be affected by the weapon. Adjacent players may, if they have the ability, use their own Defense Cards against the same multi-target weapon.

Any player may use a Defense Card at any time either for himself or another player. Weapons may be increased in strength by a unique card or diminished in strength due to increased range from the target bunny (such is the case with the Terminators). Regardless of any modification or circumstance, the effects of a weapon are eliminated using Defense Cards that match or exceed the weapon’s original value.

Killer BunniesSPECIALTY BUNNIES
Specialty bunnies have no color (Blue, Green, Orange, Red, Violet or Yellow) or kind (Evil, Hypnotic, Ludicrous, Spiffy or Truculent). Specialty bunnies are their own kind of bunny. A player may, of course, win the game with one of these bunnies in The Bunny Circle.

Specialty bunnies come as singles, doubles or triples that make forming a Bunny Triplet easier. If a player has three single Specialty bunnies in The Bunny Circle, then he has formed a Bunny Triplet and may play two cards per turn. If a player has a single Specialty Bunny and a double Specialty Bunny, then he has also formed a Bunny Triplet and may play two cards per turn. If a player has a triple Specialty Bunny in The Bunny Circle, then he automatically has a Bunny Triplet and may play two cards per turn.

If an opponent attacks and kills a Specialty Bunny, then all bunnies in the double or triple are lost and the card is discarded. In that respect, Specialty Bunny doubles and triples are treated as a single target. When counting for Roaming Red Run cards, and weapons that affect bunnies many spaces away, Specialty Bunny cards (singles, doubles or triples) count as one space.

Facts About The Cards

Killer Bunnies1010: BETTY BOTTER
Betty Botter may be used once by the player with the greatest number of the letter B in the titles of all of the cards in his five-card hand to take three Radish Cards and three Milk Cards. All players count the number of B’s in the titles of the five cards in their hand, and the player with the greatest number is awarded the Radish and Milk Cards. If one or more players have the greatest amount, then both or all of them are awarded the Radish and Milk Cards.

1011: BUNNY BOOSTER
Bunny Booster may be placed under any bunny and changes its color to Red. Bunnies that become Red will inherit the special feature for that type of bunny. Bunny Booster may be placed under single color (or half color – Green Booster Deck) Evil, Hypnotic, Ludicrous, Spiffy or Truculent bunnies. Bunny Booster may not be placed under a Specialty Bunny because it is not a single color (or half color) bunny.

Killer Bunnies1012: BUNNY EXCHANGE
Bunny Exchange may be used once by a player to force any opponent to exchange two of his bunnies for one of yours. In order to use this card against an opponent, that player must have at least two bunnies. Bunny Exchange cannot be used for a one to one exchange. The player chooses all three bunnies in the exchange. A bunny with Angel Wings may be taken with the Bunny Exchange card.

1015: HOLI-DELAY
Holi-delay may be used once by a player on the day after any recognized holiday to choose an opponent and to exchange any one card in his own five-card hand with any one card from the opponent’s five card hand. The player may see the opponent’s five-card hand before choosing a card for the exchange. The player may choose any of his own cards for the exchange.

To avoid confusion, recognized holidays must be reviewed by all of the players before the game begins. As a default, you may want to check a holiday list for the country in which you are playing the game. If a list of holidays cannot be agreed upon by all players, then use only April Fools Day (April 1st), Saint Patrick’s Day (March 17th), American Independence Day (July 4th) and Halloween (October 31st).

Killer Bunnies1020: SPIN TO WIN
Spin To Win may be used to force all players to spin one of the 12-sided dice. The player whose die spins the longest may change the position of any one bunny in The Bunny Circle. The bunny being re-positioned may belong to the player or an opponent. In this way, a player may ‘steal’ an opponent’s bunny.

1021: CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS
The player with Campaign Contributions saved may control the votes of any one party (Shiner Party or Whiner Party) during a Casting Terrible Misfortune. The player may choose which party to control each time a Casting Terrible Misfortune is drawn by any player.

1026: TALOS FOUR
The player with this card saved may exchange any one of his saved Special cards with one saved Special card of any opponent each time that a 4 is rolled on the Black 12-sided die by any player. The exchange may happen during the player’s or an opponent’s turn. If at any time the player has no bunnies in The Bunny Circle then Talos Four is discarded.

Killer Bunnies1027: FEDERAL AGENTS
Federal Agents may be used once by a player to retrieve and keep any bunnies abducted by aliens. The bunny (or bunnies) retrieved and kept by the player may have originally been abducted from an opponent.

1029: SCAPEGOAT
Scapegoat may be used once by a player to save a bunny killed during the same turn of play by sacrificing one of his own bunnies. The original bunny that was killed remains in place (with all Bunny Modifiers) while the player sacrifices (discards) any of his own bunnies in The Bunny Circle. The bunny that is saved may belong to the player or an opponent.

Mixmaster

(For players who mix their Killer Bunnies® Quest and Killer Bunnies® Conquest sets together.)

Players will have an extra Clear 20-sided die. If this bothers you, then leave one of the Clear 20-sided dice in the Quest box. All of the Defense Cards from both Quest and Conquest can be mixed together and shuffled into one face down pile near the emporiums.

It is possible that one emporium will close while the other remains open. However, as long as one of the emporiums is open, then players will be able to purchase Defense Cards. In the future, if both emporiums are open, but they show different prices for Defense Cards, then players may buy their supplies at the lower cost.

Questions

As we mentioned earlier, questions always seem to arise that cannot be resolved by a careful inspection of the instruction book. If that should happen then please feel free to write to us.

We’ll help you to clear up any discrepancies that you are having. Our staff is on call 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. Realistically it’s more like 8 hours a day and 5 days a week but it sounded so cool to say it the other way. Ok bottom line: we answer all of our e-mails!

Disclaimer

All characters and events in this game – even those based on real people or characters as parody – are entirely fictional. Any resemblance to actual living persons is purely coincidental or is strictly for the purpose of satire. No actual bunnies were harmed in the making of this game or will be harmed by playing it.

In the great tradition of the United States military, all players in the game are referred to in the male gender. We are in no way negating or ignoring the vital importance of women in gaming and frankly, in our lives as both the mothers who bore us and the wives that support us. Absolutely no offense is meant or should be implied on any level of our menial XY existence, it was simply easier to compose the rules using only one gender reference. So please ladies, don’t get angry or hit us.
