The game arrived in the mail the other day and I was super excited to test it out! If you haven’t heard about Exploding Kittens, I don’t know how you’ve been able to miss it! Long story short, it is the most backed project on Kickstarter in history.
Co-created by Matthew Inman (The Oatmeal), it’s a super easy and hilarious card game. But the best part of it is that it’s got his art on it. He’s hilarious, so if you haven’t seen his stuff before, check it out. You won’t regret it!
They were playing the game at work drinks last night. It was interesting to see it played with so many people. I think we were almost 10 people playing it at one point! It’s so easy to learn. It only takes about five minutes or so to figure out how it works.
Today Jeremy and I were playing it at home just the two of us, and it’s definitely different playing it with less people. Still a lot of fun, but maybe a little bit easier when there is only one exploding kitten in the deck! Jeremy won three times and I only won once I think, haha. But I’ll get my revenge at some point.
We backed the Kickstarter project, so we got an X-rated version as well, haha. We haven’t opened that one yet though. It’s the same game, just with more explicit images. Not child-friendly so to speak! I’m curious to see what the images are like, but we won’t open it until next week when we’re having our board game day!
Did you back the Kickstarter? If so, have you received it and played it? Let me know in the comments section!
