Exploding Kittens is a kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette. Players take turns drawing cards until someone draws an exploding kitten and loses the game. The deck is made up of cards that let you avoid exploding by peeking at cards before you draw, forcing your opponent to draw multiple cards, or shuffling the deck.
The game gets more and more intense with each card you draw because fewer cards left in the deck means a greater chance of drawing the kitten and exploding in a fiery ball of feline hyperbole.
'It's like UNO, except there are goats, magical enchiladas and kittens that can kill you.'

HOW IT WORKS
You put the cards on the table and take turns drawing from them.
If you draw an Exploding Kitten card, when you explode, you die and you're out of the game.
You play a defuse card, which will stop the kitten from exploding using things like laser pointers, kitten yoga and catnip sandwiches.
Play various cards to skip your turn, attack other players, peek at the deck, or secretly relocate an exploding kitten card.
RELOCATING AN EXPLODING KITTEN TO A NEW LOCATION IN THE DECK LETS YOU FORM COMPLEX, FUN, AND CRUEL STRATEGIES AGAINST OTHER PLAYERS.
You can play cat cards, which are different from kitten cards. Cat cards activate special powers.
