EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Unicorns are rare creatures, but there are a lot to find and collect in the new card game UniQuest. Find unicorn playing cards with color-matching horns, manes, and hooves to collect the Unicard of that color. If you collect four Unicards first, you win.

Each player starts with five cards and takes turns either drawing the top card from the draw pile or the top card from the discard pile. There are colored symbols in the upper right corner of the Unicorn cards to make it easier for you to keep track of what colors you're going for. If the player has three matching cards, he can play them and collect a Unicard. If not, he must discard a card, and it's the next player's turn. 

Once a Unicard has been collected, no other player can match that color.

Wild Rainbow Unicorn cards can act as any color/part of a unicorn that you need. But watch out for Dark Horse cards because those force you to discard your entire hand AND any Unicards you had collected.

An optional expansion pack can be added to this version to extend the gameplay, offer more variations, and play with more people.

Is It Fun?

This game is pretty easy to learn because it's mainly a matching card game. And it's got unicorns in it, one of the "it" animals of the year. This would be a great game for the whole family to play, and if you have slightly older players, you could switch up the gameplay by adding in the expansion pack.

Who It’s For

UniQuest is for two to four players ages 6 and up. The expansion pack is for two to eight players ages 10 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The game comes with seven Unicards, two quick guide cards, 63 Unicorn playing cards, a Dark Horse card, three Wild Rainbow Unicorn cards, and instructions.

An expansion pack is available for $13.
