Card games are usually not that much entertaining and after a certain time frame it gets boring. I wasn’t in favour to play any sort of card game at any party but this one time I couldn’t resist when I heard about Kittens and Explosions! Yes! You heard it right. But don’t worry you do not have to bomb your cat or anything. Exploding Kittens is a really interesting card game that doesn’t keep you in any sort of pressure. This game proceeds without you knowing what might happen next but you can plan your strategies in order to safeguard yourself or target the other players. There are certain cards that might help you change the course of the game altogether. You can call it the Kitten-version of Russian Roulette that requires you to draw cards until the deadly card arrives that would force you out of the game. My first experience playing this game was simply amazing. If you are planning a party at your place and require a light and fun game then Exploding Kittens is the perfect choice. Munch on those snacks and play your cards right to share a wonderful time with friends and family. I have heard people talking about this game and everyone holds a positive review about it.

How to play Exploding Kittens

Variety of Cards in the Deck
Exploding Kittens is different from other card games as it has a wide range of cards which are capable of making the game fun and interesting as it proceeds further. This game can be played by people belonging to every age group due to its simplicity. The deck of 56 cards in a magical pack that can help to lighten the environment through its superb concept. The game play involves each player to pick up a card from the deck. The crazy element of this game is that, there are some special cards that would either help or pose a danger on your existence in the game. If you draw an Exploding Kitten then it will blow you out of the game at once. There is one counter to this situation though that can help you stay alive. If you possess a Defuse Card then you can use it to stay in the game and the Exploding Kitten which you drew goes back to the deck anywhere based on your choice. Similarly, there are a variety of cards that would help to manipulate the game at any point. The Nope Card would stop any action but it is not that effective to stop an Exploding Kitten. The Skip Card allows you to end your turn without drawing a card. But remember a single skip card can only skip 1 turn. The wicked cards include Favour, See the Future and Shuffle cards. If you draw a Favour card then you can force any player of your choice to hand over one card from their possession. The choice of card would be made by the targeted player. The Shuffle card gives you an opportunity to shuffle the drawing deck. The most helpful weapon of this game is the See the Future card which allows you to see the first 3 cards of the discard pile. There are other cards like three of a Kind and Two of a Kind that also play a clever part in this game.
