Why You Should Buy: Exploding Kittens

Exploding Kittens is currently my go-to game when I want to play something with the entire family. Just be warned, Exploding Kittens is extremely popular, so if you're buying this over the holiday period, act fast and grab this gift early before it sells out.

What Is Exploding Kittens?

Think hot potato, only instead of a potato, it's a kitten that explodes. That's essentially what the game is. Kind of.

You see, the goal in Exploding Kittens is to avoid getting the exploding kitten card. You'll start with one defuse card, so if you come across the cat-bang, you will survive. But only once. The next time you draw it, boom, you're out.

That said, if you're a clever thinker and luck is on your side, there are ways to turn the tide in your favor.

How to Play Exploding Kittens

Each player has a hand of cards, and this is where the deviousness comes into play. Maybe the card pile is down to the last few and you just know the next card is an exploding kitten. Why not play an attack card that forces the next player to pick up a card from the pile?

Or you could opt for a defensive strategy. For this, you'll need to collect several of the same card (think five-card-trick) and should you pull this off, you can steal another player's defuse card, meaning you're safe to pick up two exploding kittens before you're at risk.

There's a lot of different ways to completely screw over your opponents, and that's where the real fun begins. Exploding Kittens has that malicious side of Monopoly that families love. You will laugh, cry, and everything in between.

How Hard Is Exploding Kittens to Understand?

As someone who is terrible at learning new board or card games, Exploding Kittens is really, really easy to pick up and play.

It's one of those games that manages to teach you through play. Just give the rules a quick glance to see how many cards you need, deal, and start. You'll understand it after one game, then the second is for picking up the other details (like what multiple cards do).

Are There Any Other Games Like Exploding Kittens?

I'm glad you asked! The company behind Exploding Kittens, also called Exploding Kittens, has created a name for itself by producing wacky, fun family games that are incredibly unique.

First up is Throw Throw Burrito, which is a card collecting game mixed with dodgeball. Grab cards, don't get hit by the foam burrito.

Next is Bears vs Babies. This is, I don't even know how to say this, a card battler where you create different monsters that eat evil babies. It's all very silly, and not nearly as menacing as I just made it sound.

And finally, we've got You've Got Crabs. Yes, you read that right. In this game, you need two teams of two, then between the two of you, you need to get four of a kind.

The catch? You can't tell your teammates what you've got. You need a secret wink or nod. But if the other team catches on to your secret gesture, you lose a point. It's pure, pure brilliant chaos!

One Thing to Consider: Shipping

I don't want to freak anyone out, but this year has been a little different, and more and more shoppers are turning to online so they can avoid venturing outside. 

While that's the smart way to do things, it does mean delivery services are under a lot of pressure to keep up with the unprecedented demand. And as such, delivery may take a little longer than usual. 

If you're looking to avoid disappointment, definitely consider grabbing stuff as early as possible to avoid any delays. Throw everything in a cupboard and lock it tightly. Trust us, you do not want to leave anything until the last minute.
