Product Description



 
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.
 
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.

For starters, we love the game. I have 3 girls ages 9, 7, & 3. The 9 & 7yo love the game, the quarky characters, and the simple premise. This game would be worth $20 for a deck of cards IF it were a deck of cards that could endure the treatment of children.

Not only that, but even when we first got the game, I did all of the card handling. Even when I was shuffling the new deck of cards, edges of the cards started peeling back during the simple shuffling process. Just within the first few games. Which seems easily avoidable since playing cards have been around for quite some time now. It's not new technology or anything.

My 7yo cheats, and peeled edges on cards can be used to cheat.

Choose a new printing service, and you'll get 5 stars from me. But charging us $20 for a poor quality product that costs so little to produce just seems like garbage business ethics.

I must say, this game is funny and a blast to play. I can see why it has so many positive reviews. We love it, and would give the game five stars except for two issues. The first is that it is simply a card game. Paying $20 for a deck of cards seems a bit steep to me. However, honestly, that wouldn't bother me as much if not for the second issue. The production quality of the cards are low. Most of the regular decks of cards I've played lasted longer than these. Within a few weeks, we were seeing wear on the cards that took some of the mystery out of what was in another players hands. Now, after about 20 games, every card is marked by wear on the edges. I would encourage the game developers to invest in a thicker card with a heavier wax like the ones many other card decks are made with. If you purchase the game, and you have a laminator, it may be wise to laminate before gameplay so the cards last a long time. If they do, it will be well worth having. It's a hilarious game to play!

I'm breaking this review down into two categories: Gameplay and Quality of Product.

Gameplay: Excellent. Really fun game that the entire family can play. As adults, we'd rather play this than a lot of other family style/card games. We also have a 13 year old, 6 year old and a 4 year old. Our older boy is the one who suggested it and it was a hit. Took about 2 open-hand games and 2 assisted games to get our 6 year old going, but after that he was good to go. Our 4 year old can even play on her own now after a couple weeks of watching and sitting with us...she really doesn't need much help.

There's definitely a strategy involved and each game is quite different. Where it can get tough, is if an older player is very strategic and the younger players are more basic (like most games). There's a lot more to it, than say Uno. Overall, for gameplay, it gets 5 STARS!

Quality of Product: This where the stars drop for me. First, for $20, I was expecting more than just a deck of cards. I didn't know what the game was but figured there would be more than just a deck in the box when I opened. In the end, I'm fine with the price. It's a great game. BUT, the quality of the cards is about as cheap as you can get.

We've had the game for a few weeks and played it quite a bit, but that cards are literally falling apart already. The corners are peeling apart a couple are ripped a little bit, just from normal shuffling. They're so floppy now, it's difficult to even shuffle them. Several cards are easy to pick out, based on the blemishes. This is especially tough when it comes to the Kitten or Defuse cards, the two most important sets of cards in the game. It changes everything if you can pick out a Kitten just by looking at the back side.

This game is going to get a ton of "amazing reviews" so my little review probably won't matter in the long run. If I was rating this game based on the artwork of Matthew Inman (the man behind The Oatmeal) alone, sure I'd give it 5 stars, but I'm basing my review on the actual gameplay. I played a few games with 3 people, and it felt very boring. The card illustrations are funny, but the game wasn't fun. It didn't make me feel like something I'd suggest for a group of friends to play when we're bored. You're basically putting down a bunch of pointless cards, taking other player's cards, and picking up cards hoping to get ones that will ultimately let you not get blown up when you pick an exploding kitten. A card game like Uno at least has the element of trying to get rid of all your cards and to sabotage the other players with more cards. It was nice to support the game, but there's a ton of better card games out there that I'd chose over this one. Just my opinion!

The Original Edition of Exploding Kittens is PG!! This is the suitable one for kids, work place and church!

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!

Types of cards

Defuse Card = You can play this card to stop an Exploding Kitten. You get to stay alive! Place the Exploding Kitten in the deck anywhere of your choice

Nope Card = Stop any actions... except an Exploding Kitten. You can nope a nope cards as many times as you would like. You can play a nope card at any time of the game, it doesn't need to be your turn.

Exploding Kitten = You must play this card immediately the only way to stop it is with a defuse card. If you die discard all of your cards. Including the Exploding Kitten.

Skip = End your turn without drawing a card. Skips can be used as a defused card 1 skip cards only skips 1 turn.

Favor = Force any player to give you 1 card from their card. They choose which card to give you.

Shuffle = Shuffle the draw pile

See The Future = Get to personally see the top 3 cards of the discard pile.

Special Combos

Two Of A Kind = Play a pair of kittens to steal a random card from another player

Three Of A Kind = Play 3 matching kittens to steal a "named" card from another player. If that player doesn't have the card you named you get nothing.
