Between our weird prompts and your friends’ weirder answers, this might be our funniest game yet!

First, read out a simple question (ex. I’m locked in a tiny room. What else is locked in here with me from cutest to scariest). Then everyone is assigned a secret number from one to ten. Next, each player gives an answer to the question, and the intensity of that answer is based on their secret number (ex. 1= a bunny, 10= a grizzly bear with chainsaw arms.) Finally, the person who read the question has to try and sort those answers into the correct order. If they get it right everyone wins! 

This is a collaboration with Cocktail Games based on their Spiel de Jahres Game of the Year nominated title, Top Ten. ®

That escalated quickly... and so did our blood pressure levels

That Escalated Quickly is fantastic game -- my entire group has enjoyed every minute we've played of it.

The basis of this game is about thinking of specific situations which fall onto a scale of 1-10 given by a card (both on the extremes of that scale, as well as in-between), where everyone is tasked with then ordering the severity of those situations, but only 1 person makes the final decisions. That may sound strange at first, but oh boy is this a *fantastic* recipe.

You'll find yourselves arguing with vibrant passion over why the X on treasure island is either the easiest or hardest place to find on Earth, whether your computer imploding is more ridiculous than your parents calling about how to change their desktop, and many, many other topics.

This game is genuinely one of the few games I would bring out for both parties and the regular gaming sessions with friends -- it's seriously that good. The game also functions very well for adding house rules. Want everyone to theme their answers from the POV of Star Wars characters? Go right ahead! Want to crank the difficulty to 11 and force everyone to mime their answers? That's doable as well! The game is easily adaptable to any group of players and wants they have. You can even ignore the win/lose condition of the game if everyone's just having fun.

I think the only negative about the game is that sometimes it can take a bit of time for the first person to think of an answer, but this could easily be remedied with a loose…

The game was extremely fun. I love the concept was so easy to pick up, and it was fun to hear how everyone determine their ranking. Some had everyone laughing

(un)Surprisingly Fun

A great game that was fairly easy to learn, That Escalated Quickly turned the play group into a giggling mess. As with other Exploding Kittens games, it is a silly game that seems easy enough to start playing but has no problem scaling difficulty with the level of strategy put in by the players.

Our group was a mix of gamer newbies and veteran players. With only about 10 minutes set up and reading, we dived in and were able to play without needed to refer to the rules again until the end game.

Loads of fun and highly recommend.

Name of the game is very accurate

Very unique and fun game. Very fun to play with a group or just 2 players.
