What Is This?
Exploding Kittens is a highly-strategic, kitty-powered version of Russian roulette. It was the most-funded game in the history of Kickstarter and has paved the way for peace and tranquility in the modern world. It also features cards illustrated by The Oatmeal.
How It Works
You Draw Cards
You put cards on the table and take turns drawing from them.
Until You Explode
If you draw an Exploding Kitten, you explode and are out of the game.
You can avoid exploding if you play a Defuse Card. Defuse Cards distract the Exploding Kittens with things like laser pointers, kitten yoga, and catnip sandwiches.
You can also play various cards to skip your turn, attack other players, peek at the deck, or secretly relocate an Exploding Kitten Card.

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. Exploding kittens is the most-backed crowd funded project ever, The most-funded game in the history of Kickstarter, and has paved the way for peace and tranquility in the modern world.

There is nothing sexually offense here, but a number of vulgar cards, the one cited being the worst.
You can pick up Penny sleeves at any hobby shop that sells magic or Pokemon cards. They are very inexpensive and we'll make your game last much longer.
As much as I didn't want to do so because the game itself deserves 5-stars, I had to ding a star for the party version. The card backs are different than the original game so RIP expanding this version with any of the current/upcoming expansions. Also, it's not plastic wrapped from the outside which didn't make much sense to me and the 2-3 and 4-7 player decks aren't separated from one another so a very tedious sorting was needed prior to use. Also, when playing with 4 players, the 4-7 player deck is very noticeably slower, so if you like faster kitten games, modify as appropriate. Played fine when playing with 6 players and the full 10 players. That being said though, the concept of the "party" pack begged the question to me, why don't I just get another base copy of the game to account for larger gettogethers? I ultimately shelved this copy for display (or plan to give this copy away to a friend who didn't own kittens later on) and plan to buy a other base copy to follow in the same spirit as the party pack.
New players, I'd say if you want to have a game with more than 5-6 players as is in the vanilla, get two copies of the base deck and the expansion to get the full flavor of cards this game has (about the same price as the party pack when on sale). You'll also be future proofing for further expansions going forward.
For die hard kitten fans, this is still a fine addition to your game collection and definitely some fan service is in the box (not going to spoil). It's also a great gift copy for occasions where >6 players are needed and most of the player-base will be new players.
Seriously though, this is a great game for kids and adults, and so it's fun for family game nights. Kids can play on the same level as adults and they love that.
I ended up donating my original to the games pile at an AMC hut on our last group hiking trip (shout out Lonesome Lake). Now grabbing another ahead of the holidays because there are more gatherings ahead and I hate small talk. Now, instead of listening uncomfortably to Uncle Fred's latest MAGA rant, or worse, getting drunk enough to engage him in a conversation (shudder), I can bring on the exploding kittens.
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.
Top international reviews
Age rating 7+... really?.... see how your own 7yo's gets on with this game, which I'd say is pretty complex for a child of that age, I'd say closer to 11+. Before you choose to invest in this game at £15, £20, £25 whatever, just think this is actually just a pack of cards.
Don't believe the hype. Spend your money elsewhere.
With the easy of learning the rules and then the instant competitiveness you can be up and playing within a couple of minutes for the next few hours. Each game only takes about 10-25 minutes to play so is usually played as a starting game or if we finish a longer board game but dont want to go home quite yet.
It’s very easy to catch on and the game itself takes around 15 minutes when played to completion. Perfect game to play before bed time because it didn’t take a lot of time to play a quick round.
The instruction booklet is really straightforward. It outlines a way to play when you’re first starting out, as well as a slightly more advanced gameplay tactic involving combinations of cards, once you get the hang of what each one does and when to play them.
The cards themselves are thick and well made. They hold up to my hyper 6 year old boys jumping around while he plays! They are a glossed finish and the illustrations on them are high quality and hilarious.
No game board - what comes in the box is a bunch of Exploding Kitten cards and the instruction book so the box is quite small. It’s a nice added touch to package your card game in a box rather than what cards are typically packaged in.
Overall the quality of every aspect of this game is on point, the game itself is simple to learn and fun to play, and for the price it’s worth every penny! You won’t be disappointed.
To use a computer game analogy, it's like paying £8.99 for some DLC, expecting a new mission, but receiving a weapon upgrade or a health pack! This shouldn't cost more than £2.99.
There's room in the Exploding Kittens box for the additional cards (if you have an early deck, you have to flip the inside of the box and insert the supplied divider to make them fit.) The same can't be said of the Cone of Shame, which is too big to store conveniently, and we've ended up putting to one side and not using.
The only aim, DONT EXPLODE!
Using the cards provided you can turn the moves back on your opponents, make them pick up from the card pile, block actions against you and ultimately make them explode.
It's a quick setup and offers hours of hilarious gameplay, with artwork from The Oatmeal each card is destined and hard-wearing.
There is also a NSFW version with slightly ruder cards for older players but either way you go exploding kittens is a certified classic and is a must have for Xmas!
