- The digital version of the most backed game in Kickstarter history
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.

I really enjoy this game. It only takes a few minutes to play a round, and while mostly luck of the draw, some strategy does keep you engaged. My favorite thing about this game is that it is straight forward with payment, unlike most games anymore. There are no ads! There are no coins, tokens, etc., to play, you can play all day with the core deck. If you choose to expand, you can pay an up charge for more cards. This is actually pretty clever as it gives you an opportunity to learn the game with some basic cards and then adds some extra options later. You can also pay for different avatars, but again, you don’t have to. When searching for a game, it sometimes asks if you would like to try one of the other decks for free. The only downside to this game is that it is limited to the players online at the time. Sometimes the lobby doesn’t fill up, or when you are playing, players quit. Also, you will be booted if your phone rings mid game. I would like to see the “Nope” card from the card game brought in. I recommend this game!
Great game just one suggestion
I was playing the exploding kittens app in play with friends mode. It is lots of fun to see how your friends respond when playing the game. It would be cool to add live video streaming with camera access to see how friends react during the game to make it more fun and to bring family and friends together that play long distance. Probably would slow down the game too much but I think it is the only aspect missing from this app as compared to playing the card game with a real deck of cards.
Needs better troll control and better customer service
I have so much fun playing this game! It's great! BUT...I'm giving two stars because I've gotten no response from customer support. The report a jerk button is a joke. I've written to them about offensive user names and trolls who will use the nag feature and who will even rename themselves your screen name. I suggest the nag feature be removed as there is a timer and a card is automatically drawn if you take too long. Also, screen names should be unique to people and should be able to be reported if they are offensive. Other than that, it's a great game. Just play with friends only because jerks are not moderated.
