Just played a 3-player game. Put in 2 exploding kittens, Each player got a defuse. Rest of the defuse cards went in the deck. Shuffled and then started to play.

We got to the bottom of the deck and only one player had been exploded and both remaining players had at least one defuse card in hand. Rules say you can't run out of draw pile, but somehow we did. A little confused.

Only one exploding kitten card came up? Where is the other one?

The only thing I can think of is that somehow you ended up with an exploding kitten in the discard pile on a defuse or 2? Remember to INSERT the defused exploding kitten card back into the deck. Only successful exploding kitten cards get discarded.

Your draw pile cannot run out as you always put the exploding kitten cards back in the draw pile. At the bare minimum, your draw pile should have been 2 copies of exploding kittens.

The Exploding Kitten was the last card and I had multiple defuses in hand so I guess we should have just played it out and kept putting it back?

That is kind of the goal at the end of the draw deck. The more diffuse cards that you can stock pile up in hand before you get to that point, the safer you are.

The kitten goes into the deck, the defuse goes into the discard pile. Eventually there won't be enough defuses and two players will be eliminated.

Suggestion, instead of putting the kitten on the bottom of the deck with a defuse, put it on top, so it hits the next player.
