As indicated by a Kickstarter blog entry and on the Kickstarter page for Exploding Kittens, the game team (Elan Lee, Shane Small, and The Oatmeal’s Matthew Inman) made a few declarations with respect to the end of the venture and the staggering help it got.
“We’ve never seen anything like you guys, and neither has the planet. You have proven beyond any doubt that you are unstoppable. There’s nothing we can put in front of you that you can’t do. There is nothing too great, nothing too hard, nothing too outrageous that you incredible group of incredible people can’t accomplish as a community.”
Exploding Kittens is an exceptionally strategic kitty-fueled adaptation of Russian Roulette. Players alternate drawing cards until somebody draws a blasting little cat and loses the game. The deck is comprised of cards that let you prevent an explosion by peeking at cards before you take one, driving your adversary to draw multiple cards, or rearranging the deck.
The game gets more tensed with each drawn card because the fewer cards remaining in the deck imply a higher shot of drawing the kitten and exploding in a red hot wad of feline hyperbole.
This general depiction isn’t sufficient to clarify the details of the game, with mechanics like defuse cards (which prevent a kitten from exploding) and a wide variety of different cards. Overall, the game is mind boggling but appears intended to be unbelievably funny and amusing to play.
Those who are interested in taking a look at Exploding Kittens and getting the game for themselves can go on the official site that includes an outline of the game, and alternatives for buying the game. Exploding Kittens will undoubtedly turn into the new party diversion for grown-ups and children alike.
