Every time there's a rainbow, we all know that there's a pot of gold at the end of it. That's just science. But did you also know about all the unicorns that are racing along that rainbow in order to get to the gold first? That you might not have known about. Or about the bets that other fey creatures place on which unicorn will win. But that's what you'll be doing in Unicorn Fever, the new board game from Horrible Games that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Few know that whenever a rainbow appears, unicorns will start to race on it to dive into the pot of gold at the end. But all those who do, also know that it is a great chance to earn a humongous amount of gold!
Each player is a wealthy bettor, determined to be recognized as the most skillful unicorn-race wagerer of the Great Unicorn Racing Championship and hold this title until the next rainbow appears. During 4 races, players will try to place successful bets to gain Victory Points and Gold. To reach their goal, they will sign Contracts with unscrupulous citizens of the fairy realm to hire their services and turn the odds of the race in their favor, play Magic cards to straight up fix it, and try to avoid squandering all their hard-earned Gold and be forced to ask the Elf-Mob for Loans. At the end of the Championship, the player with the most Victory Points will be the winner!
The campaign's just up and over its funding goal with 20 days left to go.
