This classic magician’s trick never fails to delight adults as well as children. “Magic Rabbit” manages to cleverly capture this fascination with the magician’s act. As a group we have to work together to hide nine rabbits underneath nine matching hats. At the beginning of the game the hats numbered 1 to 9 are laid out in order. Under each of them is a rabbit but there’s no such order to these bunnies. No magician wants to pull rabbit number 4 out of hat number 7, so we need to help them out. The trick is that on your turn you can either look underneath a hat or swap the order of the tiles, all without talking about the information you’ve discovered. The time limit of two and half minutes helps to increase the pressure and there’s absolute euphoria if you succeed. New rules are waiting in sealed envelopes, which can be added to the game whenever you feel like a new challenge.
