  • Description
    Europe. Summer. 1997. You and your most creative friends have discovered two problems with a common solution: Mad Cows in England and Unexploded Bombs in France.You've decided to bring these two powderkegs together just to see what happens. And you wouldn't say 'no' to a little money on the side.So round up your herd, march them through France, and set them loose behind the Cordon Rouge. If you're lucky, you'll come home rich before Greenpeace gets hold of you.Either way, there's something magical about blowing up cows.Spend cash this summer using Mad Cows (which are going cheap in England) to clear fields of unexploded bombs in France (which apparently pays pretty well). Okay, but you'll have to remember to play better than all your friends, or you're just likely to lose money.Unexploded Cow is a money game in which players are trying to collect enough points to win the Pot. On every turn, you will buy Cows and pay for special effects by putting money in the Pot, then try to discover bombs with your own Cows in an effort to take money out of the Pot. All along, you will be earning points from the French as you liberate town after town from the terrors of unexploded bombs, and the player who scores the most points gets whatever's left in the Pot.Unexploded Cow is best played as a series of short games, each of which takes about half an hour. The game is quite simple and very chaotic: you'll have a blast. Awards 2001 Listed in GAMES Magazine's GAMES 100 - BoardGameGeek
