Day 16 – Game You Wish You Owned

While I suspect this one would change from day to day, the one game that I wish I owned is Bunnies & Burrows.

Or I guess I should say "re-owned". B&B was originally published by Fantasy Games Unlimited in 1976, some two years after D&D came out. It was inspired by Richard Adams's fantasy novel Watership Down, and players were given the opportunity to take on the role of rabbits. I bought the game, and ran it several times over the next two years, and then bought the second edition of Bunnies & Burrows which came out from FGU in 1982 or so. I moved several times during the 1980s, including the move from Ottawa to Toronto and then back again, and it was during one of these moves that I somehow lost both copies of the game. For some reason, I could never find a copy of the game again anywhere. *sigh*

I loved the simplicity of the mechanics of the game, the fact that players took on the role of rabbits, and that the game emphasised roleplaying a bit more over combat. My Friday night players have hoped for decades that I would be able to find a copy of the game again, as they want to play it. And I keep hoping that I'll find a copy of the game. No luck so far. *sigh*
