Horrible Games has released an announcement that their latest board game Unicorn Fever will be released on Kickstarter on the 24th of September.
Unicorn Fever is a tactical beating game where you choose your favourite unicorn, place your bet, then watch the race unfold.
About the Game
Each player is a wealthy bettor, determined to be recognised as the most skilful unicorn-race wagerer of the 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 buy Contracts with unscrupulous citizens of the fairy realm to hire their services and turn the odds of the race in their favour, 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!

A game of Unicorn Fever is played over 4 rounds.
Each Race is composed of 3 phases:
Planning Round: During this phase, you will perform actions to Sign Contracts and hire magical beings to take advantage of their abilities, play Magic cards to fix the Race, place Bets, and more.
Race Round: During this phase, you will flip Movement cards and roll the Sprint dice several times, watch the race unfold and root for your favourite unicorns!
After Race: During this phase, you will check which of your Bets were successful and which weren’t, gain the corresponding payoff, perform a bit of maintenance, and update the odds of all Unicorns, depending on their ranking at the end of the race.
At the end of the fourth round, the game is over, and the player with the most Glory [VP] is the winner!
