Exploding Kittens is a highly strategic 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.
The game is the creation of Matthew Inman of The Oatmeal and a couple of game designers (Elan Lee amd Shane Small). Not entirely surprisingly, the Kickstarter campaign reached its funding goal in 20 minutes. I backed it anyway because: Exploding Kittens.
