      Manufacturer's Description


      Created by Elan Lee (Xbox, ARGs), Matthew Inman (The Oatmeal), and Shane Small (Xbox, Marvel), Exploding Kittens made history when it became the most-backed game in Kickstarter history and the campaign with the most number of backers, ever.

      It is a highly-strategic, kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette. Players draw cards until someone draws an Exploding Kitten, at which point they explode, they are dead, and they are out of the game — unless that player has a Defuse card, which can defuse the kitten using things like laser pointers, belly rubs, and catnip sandwiches. All of the other cards in the deck are used to move, mitigate, or avoid the Exploding Kittens.

      Ages 7 + | 2 - 5 Players

      Trailers & Videos Playlist



      You put the cards face down on the table and take turns drawing from them. If you draw a kitten card, you explode! When you explode, you die and you are out of the game (which is a bad thing), Unless! you play a defuse card which can defuse the kitten using things like laser pointers and catnip sandwiches.

      You can also play various cards to skip your turn, attack other players, peek at the deck or secretely relocate exploding kittens (relocating an exploding kitten card to a new location in the deck lets you form complex, fun and cruel strategies against other players. Also! you can play cat cards, which are different from exploding kittens. Cat cards activate special powers when played as multiples.

      Logical, Nuts and Awesome! Review by Jess (Posted on 5/08/16)

      Just one of those games that's going to draw in many people - the images alone get the kids sense of humour which is great to see when they start acknowledging them. A game that's easier to learn by playing and takes less than twenty minutes for the most part, this is a great game to take along to people's houses, camping or for sleep overs. The best part is that each expansion increases either game play time or how many people can play! One that relies on your own wit and how well you know your opponents, this game is well worth playing.
