HRS card for Killer Bunnies Game

This is Momma's favorite card so far, of course. We adopted Samwise from the House Rabbit Society. She was in foster care and needed a good home. This card features the HRS logo (which kinda looks like Sam) and will probably work well in the game play (last time they played Grampa Baird had 7 bunnies in the Bunny Circle and most of the other players had none. Momma had the holographic bunny, but couldn't win the game without a real one!). It's meant to simulate the real need of bunny lovers to adopt a bunny from a foster program instead of purchasing a baby bunny from the pet store!

El-Ahrairah card

If you've never read Watership Down (or at least seen the movie) you'll have no idea who this very special rabbit is. He is the legendary rabbit prince with a thousand enemies from rabbit mythology. You pronounce his name something like "Ella-rare-ra" with rolled r's of course. Momma and Daddy are now reading Tales From Watership Down and there are lots of stories about him in there. He can steal cabbage from anyone and no ordinary weapon is likely to kill him (unless it uses the 20-sided die!) since in this card he has 10 lucky clovers to protect him.

Momma used her own rabbit cartoon style on this card instead of the more Killer Bunnies-like style of the Lint Roller.

"All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a Thousand Enemies, and when they catch you, they will kill you... but first they must catch you." -Lord Frith (the rabbit name for God) from the movie

Killer Bunnies' cards

Momma is making some new additions to Daddy's Killer Bunnies game. She bought some Bunny Blanks for $6 at the game store in Kettering and so far has made three. She plans to add Samwise and me into the game too but we won't pose for her!
Here's her first one: The Dreaded Lint Roller. She got her inspiration from us of course. We're shedding again and she has to use the lint roller on us sometimes beacause none of our brushes work. Of course we try to run away from it! We like to groom ourselves.
