Featured Greeting Card
In the deck of cards is an
Exploding Kitten. You play the game by
putting the deck face down and taking turns
drawing cards until someone draws the Exploding Kitten.
When that happens, that person explodes
and they are out of the game.
The remaining player wins the game.
All the other cards will give you powerful
tools to help you avoid exploding!
If it was your turn to draw, you could
play a See the Future Card to peek
at the top few cards in the Draw Pile
If you saw an Exploding Kitten, you
could then play a Skip Card to end
your turn without drawing a card
instead of exploding.
To start, remove the Exploding Kitten from the deck and set it aside.
Remove all of the Defuse Cards (3) from the deck and deal 1 to each player.
Insert the extra Defuse Card back in the deck.
The Defuse Card is the most powerful card in the
game. These are the only cards that can save you
from the Exploding Kitten. If you draw the Exploding
Kitten, you can play a Defuse Card instead of dying.
Then, reinsert the Exploding Kitten back into the
Draw Pile anywhere you'd like in secret.
Try to get as many Defuse Cards as possible.
Shuffle the deck and deal 7 cards face
down to each player.
Both players now have a hand of 8 cards total (7 cards +
Look at your cards but keep
Insert the Exploding Kitten back into the
Shuffle the deck, and put it face down in
the middle of the table.
This is your Draw Pile.
(Be sure to leave some space for a Discard Pile as well.)
Pick a player to go first. (Some sample
most excited to go first, most
intimidating odor, shortest spleen, etc.)
Gather all 8 of your cards into your hand
and look at them. Do one of the following:
Play a card by placing it FACE UP on top of the Discard Pile and following the instructions on the card.
After you follow the instructions on the
card, you can play another card. You
can play as many cards as you'd like.
Play no cards.
End your turn by drawing a card from the
top of the Draw Pile
into your hand and
hoping it's not an Exploding Kitten.
When your turn is over, it's the other player's turn.
Play as many or as few cards as you'd like, then draw a card to end your turn.
Eventually, one player will explode, and the
other player wins the game!
You won't ever run out of cards in the Draw
Pile because the Exploding Kitten will
always kill one player before you run out.
