Thanks @acestrikerz its in stock @ Target.

https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B07BMLQBM1

Lowest price on this has been $17 but have not seen that for a while. At $20 this is a great buy and even though the box says its for 14+, I found that even my 8 year old found this game relatively easy to play.

Build a Unicorn Army. Betray your friends. Unicorns are your friends now. Unstable Unicorns is a strategic card game about everyones two favorite things: Destruction and Unicorns! From the back of the box: Learn how unstable your friendships really are. You start with a Baby Unicorn in your Stable. SO CUTE! But don't get too attached, because even Baby Unicorns aren't safe in this game! There are over 20 Magical Unicorns to collect, and each has a special power. Build your Unicorn Army as fast as you can, or be destroyed by one of your so-called friends! Seek revenge or protect your stable using your Magic! Sound easy? Not so fast. Someone could have a Neigh Card (Get it? Neigh?) and send the game into MADNESS! The first person to complete their Unicorn Army shall hereafter be known as The Righteous Ruler of All Things Magical. at least until the next game. Good luck. Contents: 135 cards and rule book.

    Anyone played this game before? How does it compare to Exploding Kittens, for instance?

    • +7

      Much better than exploding kittens. Requires a lot more strategic thinking. Exploding kittens a dud in our house, but unstable unicorns a winner. (Family with 3 kids - aged 10-15)

    • +6

      I have not played Exploding kittens (waiting for it go down in price) but I found this article an interesting read

      • +2

        What a great website. Thanks.

    • is just better made, the quality and gameplay is better

    • +4

      They're two different kinds of games honestly. If you enjoy the art style and humour of Exploding Kittens, but you're after something with a bit more depth and strategy, you'll love Unstable Unicorns. It gets a lot of play in my game groups.

      It isn't super strategic though. I'd liken it to a game like Munchkin in terms of strategy and complexity.

    • +2

      TBH I find this game gets stale, each game of unicorns ends up being exactly the same. It goes for an hour+, and everyone is just preventing each other from winning. The game objective = don't let anyone else win, and stockpile neighs.

    • This is more like monopoly deal where you're collecting unicorns. Very different to Exploding Kittens.

    • I have both. I'm not much of a board game person though.

      Exploding kittens a lot more casual, quick 20min rounds and doesn't require brain power.
      I generally whip out Unicorns when there are too many players for exploding kittens, but then it usually takes my group of noobs/first timers 60mins+ to get a winner. need to come up with a strategy to win or wait until everyone is tired from failing to win after 60mins.

    Good family game. I paid a lot more for it.

  • Looks very simple and like something to play with kids.

  • looks like all gone

  • Can't add it to cart or buy now. Tried with Edge and Chrome.

    Just says my shopping cart is empty.

  • +2

    Like my ex— definitely a unicorn, but pretty unstable

    • +9

      ………. and completely 100% make believe!

  • Damn it, always just miss these card game deals!

  • Yeah all gone now.

  • I was so close to getting this deal but now it's gone :(

    • It’s now in stock

  • +3

    14+ is for Americans, so 8+ Aussies will nail it.

      Click and collect.

    • Thanks for the heads up all targets near me have stock.

    • Thanks for this, managed to grab at my local Target

  • This game is probably similar concept to monopoly deal but a lot more variations and definitely a lot more fun.

  • +1

    eBay sells them for around $20 also (I know many are counterfeits), what are the usual prices for these?

    • Just bought the Target one and an eBay version of the NSFW edition for $17. Will refund the eBay if it's counterfeit.

      • How can you tell if it's counterfeit?

        • +1

          Often dodgy printing (blurry text or washed colours). Can never be 100% sure though, especially if it's a good fake.

      • Recently bought an ebay one (NSFW base edition) for $17. Was counterfeit….

        • A sign of my future yikes. Will get a refund when it comes and then leave negative feedback.

          • @theknight27: Sorting out my refund right now. They didn't even bother to send the right one. It was a counterfeit of the kickstarter exclusive black box with 1st edition cards

  • Great thanks for the post. Ordered. Have been waiting for this one.

  • +2

    Thanks @Acestrikerz, I have updated the post so hopefully others will benefit from this.

  • Sold out on Amazon :(

    • +2

      Hi @fLaMePrO - hopefully it is still available from Target

    • +1

      Still available in Target. if you have Flybuys points, you can redeem that too for a bonus win!

      • +1

        And cashback for double bonus!

  • can confirm it's a great game! it drags on for a long time if you have more than 4 players though. 3 or 4 players makes for a great quick game

    • Is this game similar to Monopoly? I already have 2 different Monopoly games and don't want to invest on another similar one …

  • +1

    I have to admit I found this game hard to follow, was confused about which cards you had to go through at the start of each turn, which ones you could transfer from your hand to your stable, etc. Need a straightforward explanation of the rules.

  • Such a fun game. The kids love it. This and munchkins loot-letter are the favourites in our house.

  • Back in stock at Amazon (thanks Capsicum)

    • Thanks got one

  • +1

    Thanks, bought from Target

  • Thanks OP - picked up one from Target, used another 2,000 Flybuy points for a further $10 off :)

  • If anyone is in SA, Marion lists it as out of stock. If you go to the front check-out though there are a ton in the cattle-run area. Still marked full-price but scan up adjusted.

      I know it says ages 14+, but would younger kids (primary school) be able to play this or is it inappropriate for the younger audience?

      • +5

        It doesn't have inappropriate language or concepts. The game itself is simple, but the ability to interpret cards and understand how they interact with each other requires some level of reasoning ability.

        I would suggest that younger kids could play it just fine, but they may need an older adjudicator at times to settle arguments.

      • +1

        Currently getting into the game with my 6 year old and 9 year old…the 6 year old needs some help occasionally interpreting the cards, but otherwise no issues…

        It did take us a little while to get into it though, but it's pretty fun once we got over that hump..

    • bought this for my 8 year old and then after i saw the comments i cancelled the order

      Even though intended for ages 14 and up, the game contains a fair bit of adult-oriented, explicitly sexual humor, even without its NSFW expansion pack

      • +2

        Cool thanks for sharing. Almost bought this for my kids. Daughter loves unicorns.

        • I bought it for my daughter when she was 9 or 10, as she also loves unicorns. There are a couple of cards which are a little risque, but I removed them before I gave it too her, and she is none the wiser. By memory it's fine once those two cards are removed. (Even those two aren't terrible compared to some of the stuff kids her age are being exposed to, but I tend to err on the conservative side with these things.)

          In terms of the mechanics of the game, they could play it just fine from that age.

          • +1

            @Spud McDoug: Which
            Two
            Cards ! !

            Quick, before my wife finds them…

            (just gave my kids this game and said 'here, play….')

            • +1

              @GC67: You're stretching my memory.

              I had a look around, I think it was the Seductive Unicorn and something else. The seductive unicorn isn't dramatically risque in the scheme of things, but we try to avoid exposing our kids to unnecessarily sexualising material at this age.

              • @Spud McDoug:

                but we try to avoid exposing our kids to unnecessarily sexualising material at this age.

                That would mean not listening to modern music or watching youtube.

                • +3

                  @jv: Yep.

                  (The only way to avoid it altogether would be join some sort of commune, but we more realistically we can certainly reduce and manage what they are exposed to.)

      • +7

        Not sure what game that's reviewing, but it's simply not true. I just went though the entire base game cards, one by one……there is absolutely nothing crude or NSFW about it. There are ZERO sexual references.

        The most explicit things I found were an "extremely fertile unicorn" (a card that allows baby unicorns to be spawned more quickly) and a "seductive unicorn" that attracts other unicorns to your stable.

        There are also a number of cards implying violence "Stabby unicorn," "Shark with a knife" and "Unicorn poison."

        I would happily let kids play this game, so long as they're capable of reading and understanding the cards - it's pretty word-heavy at times. Again, there's nothing inappropriate, suggestive or explicit in the base game.

        Obviously the NSFW expansion cards are a very different story.

        • Thanks. Decided to order the one off eBay for $16.99 with free express post for eBay plus members.

          Would've preferred Amazon but hopefully express post is just as quick.

      • +1

        I have this game, play it fairly often, THE BASE GAME does not have any sexual humour at all and definitely not adult oriented. The only version that has those cards are the NSFW one.

        Neigh neigh

    • Had this in my cart and it sold out before I could even complete my order. :(

      • It will be back. It sits at $20 a lot of the time. Whenever it gets posted here it sells out for a while.

      • Thanks, updated. Check in a day or two and it may pop back.

      • +1

        Tried to PM you but you've disabled that.

        Its available again:

        https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B07BMLQBM1

        • Thanks mate, it was available but it went before I could buy it again! I'm just spamming refresh on the page now lol.

    • This game any good for 2 players, or is it like most of the others that are far far better with 3 and more, ie codenames and pandemic?

      • It works with 2 players, but much better with 3 or more.

        • I reckon 3 or 4 is about the sweet spot, more can make a game go for quite a while.

    • Anyone looked for deals on the NSFW expansion

    • Amazon is back up!

      • DAMN it.. just ordered from Target click and collect for $20… oh well

      • As with Amazon, the stock will pop up and down within a few minutes :P
