I just came across this and realized it was essential to tell you about it. Or, maybe, I’m the last person to learn of it.

Exploding Kittens: A Card Game About Kittens and Explosions and Sometimes Goats.

Apparently …

Exploding Kittens is a card game for people who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats.

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.

Created by Elan Lee (Xbox, ARGs), Matthew Inman (The Oatmeal), and Shane Small (Xbox, Marvel), Exploding Kittens is the most-backed Kickstarter project ever, and the most-funded game in Kickstarter history.

Apparently, there is also Exploding Kittens: NSFW Edition (Explicit Content).

Am I the last person to now about this?

Anyway, happy Catturday!

Have you read the breakthrough novel of the year? When you are done with that, try:

  1. Possibly the last. It was a record breaking kickstarter and came out a few months ago. The game is quite fun, simple, and fast. There are digital versions for Android and iOS, as well as an expansion pack called Imploding Kittens coming out soon.
