Once again, the hunter prowls the forest. All the animals flee in terror! Well, not really. Only a dumb animal would call attention to itself in Bunny Bunny Moose Moose. In this forest, the animals are smart, otherwise their heads would be decorating the hunter’s mantelpiece. These animals just casually saunter away, while convincing the hunter that he must be looking for something else.
‘Are you hungry for rabbit, Mr. Hunter? Well, you see, I’m a moose. Oh, no, not a moose with antlers like that…’ Players take on the roles of rabbits and moose. One player, acting as narrator, lays down cards that indicate which animals are most likely to get away.
The other players use their hands to make rabbit ears or moose antlers of various shapes in an effort to look like an animal the hunter won’t shoot. When the narrator turns over the hunter card, the other players freeze, and the narrator scores each animal according to the cards. Players advance their rabbit and moose figures along the forest trail, distancing themselves from danger based on how well they scored. Then a new player takes the role of narrator and starts the next round.
The game ends after everyone has been narrator two or three times, and the player whose figures are farthest ahead wins. Bunny, Bunny, Moose, Moose is a party game for up to six players lasting approximately 20 minutes. And while the hunter strolls through the forest the rest of the players show with their hands on their heads what sort of a bunny or moose they currently are and spectators enjoy themselves equally well.
