Summary

So there are these bunnies. They’re quite cute, but they’ve got no eyes. Also, they like to find and wear skulls and perform rituals that turn them into Skully Bunnies. Oh yeah, they fight each other. That’s the deal with Chick Meow’s Skully Bunnies. Be the first player to fuse a certain number of Skully Bunnies based on the number of players to win the game. You can do this by playing bunnies, skulls, and fusion cards of the same suit. One a Skully Bunny is fused, you even get to activate its unique ability. Easy right?

Pros

  • Easy to learn, simple to play
  • Depth of play comes from the cards
  • Interesting aesthetic

Cons

  • Only available through The Game Crafter (pricey)
  • Needs a bit more graphic design polish
  • May be creepy for younger players

Well, it would be if your opponents weren’t trying to stop you by using various Spell and Cancel cards. These toss a wrench into your plans or help your opponents fuse their Skully Bunnies quicker. Thankfully you can use them too. You’ll need them.

Example bunny, spell, skull, cancel, and fusion cards

The basics of the game are simple: Draw one card, Play one card. You play bunnies to the table, and then skulls and fusion items on top of them, in that order. Spells are used and then discarded, and cancel cards can be used during another player’s turn to stop them from playing cards. Once you’ve placed a fusion item down, you can snag a Skully Bunny of that suit and put it on the stack of bunny/skull/fusion.

Skully Bunnies is a relatively simple game to get the hang of, with much of the depth coming from the various spell cards, Skully Bunny abilities, and the ability to cancel other player’s actions. It’s also adorable, in a kind of horrific way. It’s a game that can be enjoyed by the whole family, though the hollow-socketed bunny faces may creep out some younger children.

Thems the rules

Honestly, there’s just something about the game that clicks. It’s not going to win any awards for unique mechanics or anything, but it’s a hell of a lot of fun to play. With a little more polish on the graphic design end, and full production to lower the cost of purchasing the game, I could see it doing very well in stores. As it stands now, you can only get it through The Game Crafter, which makes it a bit pricer than you’d expect.

There is an option for those who can’t afford to pay the $37 price tag. If you’ve got a copy of Tabletopia, you can play the game for free on there! The implementation is excellent, and you can have just as much fun playing it there with friends as you can in person. It’s also socially distant, so much safer right now!

Skully Bunnies is undoubtedly a game that should be on your radar, especially if you like lighter games that can you can enjoy with people of a wide variety of different ages and gaming experiences. Give it a shot. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
