In Unexploded Cow, you and your friends have discovered two problems with a common solution: Mad Cows in England and unexploded bombs in France. In Unexploded Cow, you will help the towns of northern France clear away a century's worth of old bombs. And of course, make some cows explode.
The French countryside is lousy with bombs, left over from long-forgotten wars. You've decided the smartest use of your time would be to clear those bombs, with an army of mad cows.
So round up your herd, sail them over the Channel, and loose them in La Belle France. If you're lucky, you'll get rich before someone shuts you down.
Unexploded Cow is a fun, fast-paced card game about blowing up mad cows. The goal is to finish with more money than you started with. If you finish with the most, you win!
In Unexploded Cow, you and your opponents will buy cows and march them through bomb-littered fields in France.? When a cow finds a bomb, he blows up, and earns money. If you blow up your own cows, you earn the friendship of the City, taking the City card and doing what it says.
After the last City is taken, the game goes into Sudden Death, which begins with the player who took the most City points. At the end, the player with the most money wins!
This new, full-color version of Unexploded Cow has two play differences with the original black & white version:
* City cards now provide points (that will determine who goes first in the Sudden Death round) and a one-time reward. Rewards include: taking money from the pot or other players, stealing cows, drawing cards, and taking a card or cow from the discard.
* Sudden Death Round in which players blow up cows until the entire pot is gone or there are no cows left.
Unexploded Cow is best played as a series of short games, each of which takes about thirty minutes. The game is quite simple and very chaotic: You'll have a blast.
