Exploding Kitten Card Game Review

Exploding Kittens is a card game for people who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats.

In this 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. ¬†This game is basically Cards Against Humanity meets Russian Roulette.

This NSFW version of the game contains the full version of Exploding Kittens, but the artwork on each card has been replaced with content too horrible/amazing to be used in the original Exploding Kittens game. The NSFW Edition can be played with 2 to 5 players or combined with any other deck to play with up to 9 players.

Created by Elan Lee (Xbox, ARGs), Matthew Inman (The Oatmeal), and Shane Small (Xbox, Marvel), Exploding Kittens is the most-backed Kickstarter project ever, and the most-funded game in Kickstarter history.

This game is a light fun party game. Even those who don’t play games will enjoy the simplicity, yet fun of Exploding Kittens. When it is your turn you choose to play a card on the discard pile and take that action or not too. You don’t have to always play cards. Though you can play as may cards as you would like per turn. You do have to pick up card unless during special circumstances due to action cards. You stay alive as long as you don’t draw an Exploding Kitten. If you do and have no action cards to stop it you EXPLODE and your out out of the game. THE LAST PERSON ALIVE WINS!

The Complaints:

After a handful of games the cards are falling apart and they tend to fray, especially at the edges of the cards. when this happens you can tell¬†which cards are the exploding kittens just by the tearing at the back of the cards. The cards themselves should be improved, but if you don’t care about these types of things, this complain should not effect your perception of the game.
