A Card Game for People Who Are Into Kittens and Explosions 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.

I purchased Exploding Kittens a while ago as a gift for my wife. We are huge gamers! (board games) .. I host a game night among friends twice a month at my house. My friends and I are constantly buying and playing new games to play and Exploding Kittens are quite entertaining.
I give this game high accolades for innovation and uniqueness. The images are hilarious and amusing. The game play is unique and stand out from many other games. I love the strategy and "luck of the draw" concept.
The directions require ALOT of reading and take a few minutes and mistakes to get used to. For such a small deck, the game requires a lot of rules.
Because of product quality and game play limitations, I have to give this game a 3 star rating.
The quality of the playing cards are quite cheap and are not durable at all. It's actually very disappointing because of the games initial hype and popularity.
Even though the images are excellent and game play is hilarious, I find that the game becomes ULTRA repetitive. The same limited recycled images come up over and over on a limited deck.
It would be a huge improvement for Exploding Kittens to expand the deck a bit more and to also start using higher quality cards. (Especially with so many directions)
For a game whose only "allure" are cards themselves, one would think the quality of the product would be in the actual (cards).
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.
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.
It sucks, because I would seriously consider buying the expansion pack but the difference in the cards will be so noticeable, I'm not sure it would be worth it. Pretty disappointing because, like I said, it's a great game....the quality of the cards is just so low. They really should be more laminated, like a good set of Bicycle cards or something, especially because it's not like you can just go out and quickly (and cheaply) pick up another deck. I'd rather have less packaging and better cards.
Soooo, yes, I would definitely recommend the game, just don't expect it to last too long.
