Exploding Kittens is a kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette. Players take turns drawing cards until someone draws an exploding kitten and loses the game. The deck is made up of cards that let you avoid exploding by peeking at cards before you draw, forcing your opponent to draw multiple cards, or shuffling the deck.
The game gets more and more intense with each card you draw because fewer cards left in the deck means a greater chance of drawing the kitten and exploding in a fiery ball of feline hyperbole.
The "kid friendly" base deck is 56 cards; the Kickstarter exclusive "NSFW" deck is 56 cards. The gameplay is designed for up to four players with the base deck, and adding the NSFW deck, or a second base decks ups it to eight players. More information as it becomes available!
