Q: What age for exploding kittens?

submitted by Kitten - 6 years ago
  • A: Of they have basic reading skills or can look at illustrations they can play

    submitted byAwesome - 5 years ago
  • A: The audience for this game is ages 7+

    submitted byMichael - 6 years ago
  • A: Probably 6or7 to any age! My friends all have this games and all their family members seem to love it!

    submitted byHelloi - 6 years ago

Q: Does the game become repetitive - once you know the answer to a card - such as the tacocat palindrom ? Not sure where the gameplay actually occurs - getting rid of cards etc. Thanks for any info.

submitted by TrueReview - 3 years ago
  • A: You don't answer questions so there is no answer to a card. The game isn't repetitive because each person decides how to use the cards they have randomly been dealt.

    submitted byPamH - 3 years ago
  • A: We play this game several times each week and never know who is going to win. While we don't like to draw the exploding kitten card, we aren't as worried about it as the first few times we played.

Q: Does the box meow at you when you open it?

submitted by Jason - 5 years ago
  • A: Exploding Kittens Original Edition does not meow when you open it, however the Party Pack plays party music when you open it! Feel free to email support@explodingkittens.com with any meow questions :)

    submitted byExploding Kittens Support - 3 years ago
  • A: No but it would be a cool feture

    submitted byAwesome - 5 years ago

Q: What is the difference between this and the party pack edition of the game?

submitted by Curious - 4 years ago
  • A: This 56 cards. Party pack 120 cards

    submitted byPussyCatLover - 4 years ago

Q: Why did someone want to call this game exploding kittens as a cat lover I find the name offensive.

submitted by mare62 - 4 years ago
  • A: Small kittens would explode upon the amount of offensiveness in today's society. Probably puppies and baby otters as well.

    submitted byGlasspinetree - 4 years ago

Q: Why is it called EXPLODING kittenns? And who drew the drawings! It's awesome!

submitted by Helloi - 6 years ago
  • A: Its called exploding kittens because there are kittens and explosions..... And laser beams

This game is a lot of fun. You might say it is explosive. 40 somethings approve, 10 somethings approve, generally speaking a really good time is had by all.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Exploding Kittens: Original" is an exhilarating card game that's easy to learn and wildly entertaining. The game combines strategy, luck, and a delightful sense of humor to create an addictive experience. The premise is simple yet engaging: avoid the exploding kitten cards while strategically using other cards like defuse, skip, and attack to outmaneuver opponents. The art style by The Oatmeal adds a quirky charm to the gameplay, making each card a visual treat. The game's fast-paced nature keeps everyone engaged, making it an ideal choice for game nights or casual gatherings. Overall, "Exploding Kittens: Original" is a blast to play, offering a perfect balance of strategy and laughter that keeps players coming back for more.

The rules say not to worry about ever running out of cards in the draw pile because it will never happen because of the exploding kitten card. Well, it happened! It was a two player game, and after a couple of diffuse instants, the exploding kitten ended up being the last card in the draw pile. The game was boring with just two players.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Our family became obsessed with this game from the moment we played it, and we even ran out and bought the expansions packs to go with this game. It took us a few rounds of the game to learn it and get the basics down, but once we learned it we played over and over and had so much fun!!! We love battling against each other, and the sayings on the cards are hilarious!! 10/10

Flatmate bought it, and we played almost every other day. He moved out, so got the original with all the expansions. The instructions are not exhaustive of all the scenarios that you might face during the play(especially when combining the expansions), but love the chaos it creates 🤣

It’s a great game for young, middle and old! A test round is house rules for us and it usually clicks after that for first timers. Love the art too.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Got this game about a month ago to play with my 9 year old daughter. She enjoys it so much. It's easy to learn and the game doesnt last that long so we can play multiple rounds. She really enjoys the one on one attention when we play this game.
