Q: So, this is just the game "Love Letter" with a different skin, stolen by another company?

submitted by AtLeastImTryin - 2 months ago
  • A: No theft was involved! Think of it like this: Power Hungry Pets and Love Letter purposely teamed up, like two dogs on a mission to bury a bone. No sneaky business here—just a paw-shake agreement to dig together.

Rats

We liked it! We played with a 7yo, a12yo and an aged relic. It was easy to get how to play and the rounds went quickly, so the aged relic didn't fall asleep waiting for their turn. There were snakes and snails and turtles and hermit crabs but no rats (mice don't count according to the 7yo).She felt this would be easy to fix in future editions. So yeah, 5 stars all around! Please note: the 7yo won the game.

We like a fast paced game but not TOO fast paced, so this hit the spot. Super easy to learn (definitely watch the video). We had fun playing with two but we're really looking forward to playing with 3 or 4.

As per usual, Exploding Kittens has made a fun paced game that's easy for everyone to understand (watch the video, skip the instructions!). My 12 yo and I enjoy playing it but it really shines with bigger groups.

A Lot Of Fun For All Kinds Of People

we played Power Hungry Pets with a group of 6 and overall it was positively received!! relatively easy to pick up...our second game went quick!! even the person who doesn’t normally enjoy this type of game liked the twists & turns & how every game can be different!! those elimination rules were wild and really made us laugh. we were concerned about replayability over time with the same group BUT playing with different age ranges in different circles would definitely avoid that. overall a great game at a reasonable price!!

Another winner from Exploding Kittens. The game is easy to learn but involves a bit of strategy. What cards have been played? Which are left? What is in my opponents’ hands? How can I position myself to be in the best place at the end without being eliminated? Lots to think about with only one card in our hand. We played with a wide range of ages and all were enjoying the fun. One note that the box says game length is 15 minutes. I would say the average game is longer than that, mostly because you are enjoying the banter among players as they vie for victory. If your game only takes 15 minutes, you are speed running it.

Dominoes better watch out

What is an exploding kitten game if you’re not laughing your butt off. I don’t know because it doesn’t exist. EK games has yet again released a game that has me laughing at the reactions of people due to crazy turn of events. As simple as Power Hungry Pets seems, it comes packed with tons of funny moments and replayability. Its simple but addictive loop makes me want to try over and over again until I win the next round, by playing one card at a time and trying to eliminate your friends from the round or getting the highest value possible from the cards. Some rounds may be very long while others may be too fast due to clever elimination (sometimes luck). I see what EK is saying about this game being made for people who don’t like strategies. There are strategies but they are meant to be short and sweet and it doesn’t have you counting dots like domino games. At the end of the day we enjoyed ourselves, laughed at funny tragedies and didn’t have to spend 4 hours on it. I recommend giving it a try. You’ll love it.

Easy game but deeper strategy.

Another hit from Exploding Kittens. This is a very easy game to learn and play through is relatively short, but there is a deeper strategy at play. It is well balanced where you may think you are in a position of power but then suddenly, you are eliminated. Rounds are quick enough that eliminated players won’t feel left out for long. My game group (ages ranged from 14 to 87) had fun playing. Highly recommend this game!

Power Hungry Pets might trick you with its adorable animal artwork, but underneath the fluff lies a surprisingly strategic and cutthroat card game. It's perfect for unleashing your inner devious mastermind while maintaining a lighthearted atmosphere – ideal for family game nights or friendly gatherings.

This game is super fun for a wide range of ages, and since it's quick to play, can appeal to lots of people. We played it with ages 11+, and we all enjoyed it, (even the one who hates card games liked the quick play), and look forward to playing it again!

When we first played (ages 17-57) I wasn’t too sure about it, as it seemed too basic.However, as we played through the rounds and got more aware of some of the strategies to not lose too quickly, it became much more interesting. It was remarkably easy to learn the rules and we were up and going pretty quickly. What I really liked was that there really weren’t a million rules to learn, although reading glasses for this old geezer did help!It’s a quick game. With 3 of us it was as suggested, a15 minute game, and although it is a simple game it was fun to play as your strategy develops. We all gave it a thumbs up, and it’s added to the rotation!

We love having silly games that we can bring out after dinner and play with family and friends and this one fits the bill. Setup is super quick and the fast pace keeps it interesting. Since players can only have two cards in their hands, you don’t have to wait and wait for them to decide the best card to play. Art work is great of course as it is in the Exploding Kittens family of games. We have played it so many times and have only had it a few days. Highly recommended!

Fun Game

This game is a slow burner, but once you have played a few times to become more familiar about what tasks each card number asks of you it’s a ton of fun. Sometimes you don’t want to play either the card in your hand or the card you pick up! It’s great that the game is quick to understand and quick to play as well as you can fit it in to any board game night. It’s also a lot of fun for kids as well.

For ‘Love Letter’ Lovers

Super fun! As I was reading the overview it reminded me of Love Letter, and then the first thing on the next page of the instruction pamphlet said that it’s a collab between the two. Very quick and fun game. Good for two players but would probably be better with 3+ so you can’t as easily deduce what the other person has.

This is the perfect game to play while you wait at a restaurant or just as a nice easy game between the big ones. It is super fast, fun, and with fun art. Works great with age spans too. My teens actually enjoyed playing this with us.
