Exploding Kittens is a family favorite. This easy to learn card game is hilariously fun and portable for on-the-go play.
GAME 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.
Exploding Kittens is the most-backed crowdfunded project ever, the most-funded game in the history of Kickstarter, and has paved the way for peace and tranquility in the modern world.

GAMER DAD — ★★★★★
I like it because you can partner up with younger kids and teach them to play. There’s a perfect amount of randomness and strategy.
GAMER DAUGHTER 1 — ★★★★★
I like to play it because it is short and the cards are hilarious. I like to play this game with my sister, actually with everyone.
GAMER DAUGHTER 2 — ★★★★
Exploding Kittens is really fun. The pictures are really funny, but there’s a lot of strategy involved too, which I like.
RELUCTANT GAMER MOM — ★★★★
I’ve always been a big fan The Oatmeal and Matthew Inman, so of course, I am a fan of Exploding Kittens. I like that the game includes how to info on each playing card, making it easy to learn.
I also love that this simple game is portable. We’ve played this hilarious card game with random kids before ski practice, with grandparents while waiting for dinner to be served at a restaurant, and even on a picnic table with friends while camping. It’s short, simple, and fun.
GAMER CAT — Negative ★★★★★’s
This game is morbid.
