The Jumping Jackrabbits of Rootabaga County

Many years ago in the county of Rootabaga, in the center square of a great city there was an exhibition. A great display of power and grace! On that fine day several troupes of gifted jackrabbits set out to leap over the tallest building in town to reach the chains of gold that hung elegantly from each bright and wonderful star in the sky above. Many jackrabbits could clear the building, but how many among them can truly reach the stars?

The Jumping Jackrabbits of Rootabaga County is a card and tile game for 2-4 players ages 8 and up that plays in about 20 minutes.

It is inspired by a story by Carl Sandburg called  The Dollar Watch and the Five Jack Rabbits

Install instructions

Print the striped rabbit page twice. All other pages print once. Enjoy!

A rule was accidentally left out of the rule book. If the spotted rabbit is covered by more 'allow' cards than 'prevent' cards, the rabbit can leap. (Update: this issue has been resolved.)

I clarified a couple of other sections that seemed less clear than was needed.

The art on the cards is from the Noun Project. Every artist is credited on the card.
