The Details
Exploding Kittens is a highly strategic, kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette. Basically, if you draw an Exploding Kitten, you lose and you are full of loser sad-sauce. All the other cards in the deck help you avoid or mitigate your risk of drawing an Exploding Kitten. If you don’t explode, YOU WIN! Congratulations, you are full of greatness!
  • It's like UNO, except there are goats, magical enchiladas and kittens that can kill you. -CNN
  • Family-friendly party game for 2-5 players (up to 9 players if you combine 2 decks).
  • Illustrations from the creator of The Oatmeal.
Exploding Kittens is a proud partner of Best Friends Animal Society, a nation-wide “no-kill” animal rescue.

How it works

You put the cards on the table and take turns

If you draw an Exploding Kitten card, you explode. When you explode, you die and you're out of the game.

Section Break Graphic

Unless!

You play a Defuse card, which will stop the kitten from exploding using things like laser pointers, Kitten Yoga, and catnip sandwiches.

Or

Play various cards to skip your turn, attack other players, peek at the deck, or secretly relocate an Exploding Kitten card.

Relocating an Exploding Kitten 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 kitten cards. Cat cards activate special powers.
