The rabbits of Wiggins Farm have gotten out of control. While Farmer Wiggins was away on vacation, the rabbits got into the house where they kept the sports equipment, the art supplies, the cosplay costumes and the box of classic movies. The farmer arrived home to find the place overrun with all kinds of rabbits. He’s calling upon you, the luckiest person he knows, for help to get these rabbits back into their rabbit hole where they belong. It’s a big job. There are a LOT of rabbits to round up. Maybe even one too many---but if you hop to it, you can save the day.
One Two Many Rabbits is a fun, fast-paced, family friendly card and dice game that is easy to learn and takes about 10 to 20 minutes to play. The main rules are for 2-4 players, but also included are rules for a one player game so that people can try their hand at some solo play.
Each player starts off with a LOT of rabbits and will choose to roll one, two or three dice in order to create the numbers that will help them decide which rabbits will willingly go back into the rabbit hole. But, watch out, these rabbits are tricky and will use the turns of the people playing against you to find ways to hop back into your hands. As play continues and the number of rabbits in your hand start to dwindle, the more difficult it will be to roll the numbers that you need to get rid of all of your rabbits.
There are also special cards in the deck to help you along. Wild cards can be used as any number. Plus Minus cards can be used to add or subtract two of your number cards together. Piggyback cards allow you to use the roll of your opponent to get rid of some rabbits. And Place Your Rab-Bets cards allow you to take a wild guess on which number will be rolled next and try to get rid of some rabbits that way.

You will do this by swapping, rotating, and revealing the different resource cards that make up the game board.
There is also a hungry goblin within the mine which will do its best to destroy your recently created resource paths, as well as try and eat you! Make sure you do everything in your power to avoid the goblin, and wisely utilize the tools available to you. The cleverest gnomes may even catch the goblin, eliminating it from the game!
Take care to avoid the dangers of the quarry, and steer clear of your pesky adversary. Sneak around dangerous creatures, enchant the land, and Mine Your Business!
The game will end when the mine carts belonging to each player have reached the end of the board, or if a goblin eats even a single gnome. The player with the most resources at the end of the game will stake the claim as Major Miner!
Bonnie & Clyde, Love and Death is first and foremost a solo game that can also be played as a duo, where the goal is to find the romantic end that the couple dreamed of.
Along this road trip, you will have to choose the right actions to survive, stick up banks or stores, but also keep an eye on the gas tank and the state of your vehicle, and, of course, outrun the cops, who will only get better and better at tracking you down.
At the beginning of the game, you choose from four levels of difficulty and set out on the first country road.
Each turn represents a day divided into three phases: Morning, Afternoon, and Night.
During the game, you have to manage your resource and situation gauges. Some of them can lead to your death, such as not having any food or ammunition during a shootout; others can lead to defeat, such as having a love gauge at zero, which would lead to the separation of the couple. It is therefore important to fulfil the victory conditions before triggering any defeat condition.
In easy mode, the goal is to finish your run with a shootout in a farmhouse, with two bank loot and your love gauge raised to the maximum before the police — or someone — kill Bonnie or Clyde.
