Ah, Unicorns – majestic and elegant creatures, or at least that’s what everybody believes! Did you know that there is a Kingdom where Unicorns are stupid beings that breed like bunnies?

Toulouse-based company Morning has announced their new board game, Kill the Unicorns, a strategic family game set in a crazy universe.  In Kill the Unicorns, players will play a character with special powers for the sole purpose hunting unicorns.

“Lure the Unicorns into piranha-infested lakes, or coax them into traps – with several combinations you have the opportunity to become the greatest Unicorn Hunter of all time!  Kill the Unicorns is the funniest movement game you will play. Using card to move around the map or annoying others with “take that” card, and don’t forget a Pigicorn can be hidden among the unicorn herd.”

The game is expected to launch on Kickstarter in June of 2017.  For more information about this upcoming game, visit the company’s website here.

Simurgh is a game in which players take on the role of the heads of powerful clans in a fantasy world, where humans and dragons alike hunt and go to war together.  Each player’s goal is to gather the most Power Points by breeding dragons, gathering resources, and making use of special abilities.  On each turn, players will receive 1 main action and any number of free actions.  Throughout the game, players build the board by drawing and placing Action Tiles and use them to score points or to provide new Action Spaces.  When all the scoring spaces are filled with tiles, the game ends at the end of the round and Power Points are tallied.

Both of these new games are scheduled to be released in June of 2016.
