A card game of desserts, frolic, and extremely polite bunny rabbits. Play nice with the family, or throw down with your friends!
Fluffy Bunny Tea Party is a card game about ruthlessly polite bunnies stuffing their best friends with delicious desserts.
Plays with 2-8 players, in about 30 minutes.
A What What What What?
Fluffy Bunny Tea Party is a card game designed by Marc Majcher and illustrated by Halyn Erickson. In Fluffy Bunny Tea Party, you play a bunny rabbit at a tea party with your friends, very politely trying to end the party with the fewest desserts on your plate. After all, this isn't Porky Little Piggy Party, is it? That would just be rude!
In the course of the game, you will play cards to push tasty treats in front of the other bunnies, sip tea, hop and frolic around, and, above all, be sure to mess with your friends while remaining on your best behavior at all times. Impolite bunnies had better watch out!
Most of all, it's a great opportunity to sit down with a handful of friends, talk in ridiculous bunny voices, and be as mean as you can to each other while acting as nicely as possible. The game is quick and fun, and doesn't require anything but the willingness to have a good time. Sounds like a deal, right?
What do people think about it?
"It's all I think about. I've started giving people at my office desserts and being super polite, they all give me weird looks. NO ONE UNDERSTANDS ME" -- Alex Dobrenko
"It helps you to say nice things, while fantasizing about strangling the other players. It's beautiful, beautiful." -- Andreas Fabis
"I wanted to tell you again how much I really enjoyed playing your game yesterday!" -- Richard Garriott
"Played Fluffy Bunny Tea Party, and it was AWESOME! I. want. to. play. again. yes. please." -- Ruby Willmann
Okay, so why are we here?
I've been designing and self-publishing tabletop games for about half a decade now, and this is the first project that I've decided to try to do a larger print run with. (You can check out some of my other games here and here!)
Fluffy Bunny Tea Party has gone through several rounds of revision and testing over the years, and this year, I was fortunate enough to find a great artist to draw a whole bunch of super sweet stuff for the cards! So, I'm asking for you to help me out on two fronts: First, printing a big stack of games costs a good chunk, so there's that. Second, I'd really like to pay my artist what she deserves, so your bucks are going to go to that, too!
And, of course, anyone who kicks down twenty bucks or more will get a copy of the game for themselves! Yeah!
What's in the game?
- 68 Action cards!
- 30 Delicious dessert cards!
- 8 Bunny cards with corresponding teacups!
- (Ridiculous bunny voices not included)
What does it look like?
We'll be posting more updates, photos and videos as the project progresses, but for now, here are a some in-progress action cards from the game:
You can! Drop me a line at email@example.com, and I'll do my best to fill you in!
The theme of Fluffy Bunny Tea Party makes it ideal for introducing younger children and other future gamers into the world of tabletop gaming. However, it was designed as a regular old card game for grownups who like their games with a good helping of player interaction (also known as "ruthless backstabbing") and a fuzzy veneer of civility and cuteness.

ART IS AWESOME! This reward is very special, because you not only get the game, the buttons, and the sincere thank you, but you are going to own a fine piece of original pencil and watercolor art by the one and only Halyn Erickson. Signed and numbered, of course - but there's only one of each, so I guess each piece will just be numbered "1 of 1". You get to choose your favorite bunny or dessert or whatever you like from the game, first come, first served. I'm almost considering buying all of these myself so I don't have to give them away, so you'd better hop to it, before they're gone!Estimated delivery: Nov 2011
