Module:Santa Claus vs. The Easter Bunny
Santa Claus vs. The Easter Bunny
A tactical game for 2 players.
So Santa and the Easter Bunny were sitting down in a cafe, drinking lattes, and Santa casually mentions that Christmas is more exciting that Easter. To which the Easter Bunny says that Easter brings more joy and happiness than Christmas. Santa, slightly miffed, says "Oh, I doubt that!". The Easter Bunny suggests "Perhaps a friendly contest is in order then. Let's see who can bring the most happiness, joy, and excitement to the children this year!". Santa chugs his latte and says to the Easter Bunny: "Bring it!!!" And the game was on!
Components: 5 Santa starting cards 5 Easter Bunny starting cards 29 Happiness, Joy, Excitement, and Special cards
The Goal of the Game To gain more cards than your opponent. Cards are the equivalent of points in this game.
The game consists of a series of bidding contests in which the winner of each contest receives a card. Cards that are won will later be used in future bids for new cards. Most contests are won by playing a card with high Excitement, Joy, or Happiness. Each card will have numbered values for each of Excitement, Joy, or Happiness.
This was a simple Module designed for the 2010 Christmas Print and Play Game Design Contest on the Boardgamegeek board game designers forum. The rules can be found inside the module. Yes the module is a bit rough looking. I am not a graphic artist by any means, but the card game is simple and functional. It is also my first attempt at posting a module on Vassal. I had a huge learning curve, but I think things are starting to come together. Hope someone takes the time to enjoy this simple card game.
