I need a bit of lightheartedness and silliness today…. so I’m going to share with you the Exploding kittens game – created by Elan Lee (XBOX), Matthew Inman (The Oatmeal), and Shane Small (XBOX, Marvel).
WHAT IS THIS?
The game is essentially Russian Roulette; you draw cards until you draw a kitten, at which point you lose. All the other cards can be used to defend, attack, skip your turn, or defuse the kitten using various action cards.
THE GAMEPLAY OF EXPLODING KITTENS IS PARTICULARLY UNIQUE, BECAUSE THE LONGER YOU PLAY, THE FUNNER IT GETS. AS YOU DRAW CARDS, FEWER AND FEWER CARDS REMAIN, WHICH MEANS THE CHANCES OF GETTING AN EXPLODING KITTEN GROWS HIGHER. IT BLENDS THE PERFECT BALANCE OF STRATEGY, LUCK, AND PLAYER-TO-PLAYER INTERACTION.
You can order your very own pack of Exploding Kittens cards by visiting the website and ordering through there. While you’re there, I highly recommend popping on over to The Oatmeal for some hilarious (and quite true) views on life in general 🙂
