Looking for a New Card Game? Exploding Kittens

group of friends playing cards

An extremely popular game that seemed to come out of nowhere!  Exploding Kittens is the perfect card game for kitten lovers of all ages! (Not into cats? It’s for people who are into explosions, laser beam, and sometimes goats, as well). Anyone aged 7 and up can be taught to play; it’s super easy to catch on to and the hilarious images alone are worth the laugh!

Exploding Kittens was the number #1 most funded game, and received the most backers, in Kickstarter history!  Designed to be much like a (safer) version of Russian Roulette, this game allows you to stack up the cards, where each player goes around and keeps drawing a card until someone finds the Exploding Kitten. When you do, you have a chance to diffuse the Exploding Kitten using the ‘diffuse’ card or by using a specialty card to get out of it; if not, you’re out of luck and are out of the game entirely. The game continues until there is only one player left. The longer you’re able to keep going before the exploding kitten card shows up, the better the game is going to be, so use those special cards to make it last and see how long you can keep in the game!

The best part about these cards is that you can take them with you anywhere you go.  They come in a small box, which means you can easily carry them with you to the cottage, the beach, a friend’s house, on vacation or wherever! Round up anywhere from 2 to 5 players, add in a couple drinks and some of your closest friends, and this game guarantees a hilarious experience for everyone that joins in!
