Have you ever wondered what it would be like to lead a tribe of rabbits? If you have then that is cool. I myself have always been a cat guy, but having rabbits in a game is pretty unique especially with it combined as a civilization building type game.

Rabbit Island: Explore, Build, Conquer is a game from Infinite Heart Games. It is for two to four players, ages thirteen years to adult, & will play an hour to two hours. Look for the first game to take slightly longer.

In Rabbit Island each player will lead their tribe of rabbits out to explore new territories to call home. The tribes of rabbits will come to realize that they must remain in control of their territory.

There are three phases to playing Rabbit Island. One is to explore by placing uniquely shaped tiles to form a path to move around the newly formed territory. This will connect Founder’s Hill with Tunnel tiles.

Next players will begin to place camps in the build phase. Here they will establish territories to grow carrots & to upgrade their camps to villages & hopefully to towns. Players will also be able to steal territories from their opponents by building onto their tiles.

In the third & final phase, the conquer phase, players will score points. Players will earn points for each building, for having the most Carrot tokens, & for having the largest Harvest group. The game ends at the twenty rounds, or at ten if the players want a short game.

Currently Rabbit Island: Explore, Build, Conquer is running as a Kickstarter Project through July 17th, 2017.  There are several videos & a ton of artwork on the Kickstarter page here: Rabbit Island: Explore, Build, Conquer.


There are several great options for backing the game starting with free shipping & handling to the USA & Canada for just $36.

To me the best option is the $44 tier. Not only will this tier get the backer the game, but will also get the backer a really cool coloring booking.

I’m a huge fan of tile placement games. Rabbit Island has some really unique looking tiles that I really want to get my hands on. I like that there is strategy in the exploring & building part of the game. Make sure to take a look at Rabbit Island.

Get ready to grow some carrots & game on!
