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 t​he 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.

Exploding Kittens® Reviews

The game will often suggest that we try a different expansion pack, but theres no one ever in the lobby of the expansion pack. Maybe if there are enough people who have bought the expansion pack in normal lobbies, they could have the ability to change the expansion pack for everyone?

We love this game. Love the app. Kitty Letter is fire too. You guys are doing an amazing job Can we get stats on Kittens please?

Great game. Please review the shuffle card. Theres no way it is working correctly.

We think this is not too hard but not too easy and it is a great game except for the part you have to pay for other card packs! It is so much fun and it makes us want to play all day!

This is a very great game! We love to play it! But we have some suggestions. 1. Add the imploding kittens expansion, its the only real life expansion that isnt in the game. We know most cards in the expansion are already in the game but you could add some new ones. 2. Make it so you can use the KITT-E and clawborg 3000 backgrounds in public games, maybe some new ones as well. 3. You for some reason cant play a bury card when you have an ill take that effect on you. Im assuming this is a bug.

No complaints, but we have a cool idea. Add an upgrade card that gives the ability to improve cards (put these in the description of the card) like for example the shuffle will not have a kitten on the top (unless all cards are kittens) and have two servers per variant, one with upgrade cards and one without. Also, we want to see how many people are waiting for a game for convenience.

So we loved exploding kittens our friend showed us the app and we got it but when we tried to buy a skin set it was not loading please get this app.

We love the card game, and the app. This is sooo good. We love it.

We got this game 2 weeks ago, been playing it almost every day lol. We love it all, its the best and only cat card game youll find out there and is truly unique is offers a fair experience for players that dont want to buy card packs. Since we’ve loved this game for a while now we might buy some stuff. We like it better than Uno, dont even play uno a lot anymore lol. Good job developers, like too see more :))

What would make it better is to have it be possible to be sorted into a type of game at random. Its hard to get a group together for the less popular decks.

For Exploding Kittens fans, this game is a must! (Its far better than the version for Netflix subscribers). Its a nice twist on the card game, but with all the features that make the original so addictive. We love the sounds and graphics. The only reason this is a 4-star game and not 5 is that way too often the app will glitch or crash, disconnecting right in the middle of a game. Too often we’ve been about to make an exciting move or been on the verge of a win, when the app crashes and loses our game. You can tell it happens to others too since quite often your opponents will just disappear mid-game, even when theyre winning. If they can fix the glitch, this would be an easy 5-stars. As is though, we highly recommend downloading this!

This game is really good but hear us out, we have a big recommendation. This mobile game has a setup thats perfect for Apple TV. You could just scroll through your different cards and and itll move up to show what you have selected and you can hit the main button to play the card and itll also show you the description before hitting enter, highlighting the draw card and clicking would draw a card and pause game could be play/pause button. We hope this idea gets implemented! Really good job!!

Good game but it features the packs but you have to pay for it but otherwise a really good game.

We love this game physically and really love being able to play this game whenever we feel like it. One thing though is that Ill be mid game and either winning or in a good spot and suddenly we get booted out of the game and this keeps happening so please fix this devs we really enjoy the game but when this happens it makes us angry and not want to play the game anymore.

Great game! Caught one bug where, if you make a private game public, you must wait in the room indefinitely until someone joins (or leaves and rejoins)

When we were playing a game we decided to buy a deck but it wasnt working. We click on the button and it wasnt working. Our mom tried on her Sam song and he didnt work eater fix this please sorry we have nail.

We have played this game a lot for about 2 years and love it. However, there are some bugs: not getting connected, getting disconnected and what appears to be cheating. Most annoyingly, the entire app has been increasingly crashing in the last month.

We paid for the game because we thought it might be fun to play in some down time and because we had a code for some neato in game content. Unfortunately it appears that the place to type in the codes for this neato content has been removed. Not sure how we feel about spending money on a game partly due to a content offer that isnt even usable.

Love this game but needs quite a few fixes.

Although ingenious in design, and with a potential for charming gameplay, some distinct drawbacks plague this app. The multiplayer environment has become awash with extremely aggressive players. While not the developers fault, they have nonetheless allowed the problem to worsen. Players cannot disable haptics, so nagging seems to be perpetual, and limitless. This detracts mightily from the appeal of the multiplayer experience. The servers rarely provide a full table of players for the premium content. Single player mode provides a weakly-imagined AI deployed with somewhat unabashed Blue Turtle Shell logic. The AI plays the best card even when blinded with implausible regularity. This makes winning more a function of luck than skill. With no stats other than win/loss, the single player game feels watery already, and the lack of AI multiplayer channels this sensation into a canal of low-stakes confrontation. There are many good points to this game, and the IRL version is brilliant, but quality-of-experience has declined and should be addressed.

This is overall a fun game. However, there have been multiple times the games cheats in the single player, medium or hard mode. The cheat is when there is an exploding kitten and the game itself refuses to take its move and draw the exploding kitten. The game will continuously have the opponent play until the opponent draws the exploding kitten.

This game needs to tweak the algorithms our 1st grader memorized the distribution with in mins of playing. And figured out that the host will always lose. So there should be a way to play privately with each other in a public match. They should also let you sample additional packs and rules.

Yall need to fix the technical glitches in this game.

Would not recommend purchasing additional decks. You will have to wait for at least 15-20 minutes to get any players.

If youre trying to play a local game/ private match, every player needs to buy the app. This version is butt. Get the Exploding kittens Netflix version that is free and everyone can join.

We have experienced cheating playing with other players. A player was able to draw multiple times out of turn without other players making them draw. On our turn the draw went to this player. There is no way to report this player. You dont know who these players are in the future because changing a name and character is so easily done. Please fix this!

Clearly designed by sadists. You get a code, you minimize the app to send the code to your friend, you go back to the app and it tells you it lost connection (because you minimized it) and you have to get another code. Its absurd.

The app said it was $1.99 and we were charged $9.52 when after we bought it so idk what the issue is there.

App keeps crashing and closing out. Really frustrating!

The single slap card always get bugged and prompt the player to play three times. Fix this please.

Get the Netflix version, its free and has more access to different cards. This game, once bought ofc, shows you that you have to buy all the different packs to be able to use them.

Super fun game irl, and just as fun online.

We love this game because the action is pretty cool. Now there is a problem with the other pack not the core pack, You see when we try to buy it it doesnt let our buy it and it just there.

We love this game but it would be so much better if you could use multiple expansion packs at once.

We love this game so much. Its also only $2.00! Keep making fun games!

We even have the real card game that we play as a family for Christmas! This is a funny, cute, and a game that give you a pleasant adrenaline rush! Love.

Okay, this game is awesome, we love all the sounds, cards, and the actual card game! Buttheres a small set back.. Story:Me and our brother were playing this game and noticed that theres NO NOPE CARD!!! We were are so bummed because, this is one of our favorite cards!! End of story: Soo, you get why the title is what is it lol. Anyways, please either put the NOPE card in one of the already made decks, or create a whole new deck with the card in it! Many thanks, Addison and Carter.

We like the new pack we just bought it its confusing but fun.

Hi we enjoy your game especially the new feature, however, it seems there are players who are cheating because we noticed when there is a bomb on top they somehow manage to draw a different or avoid with playing another card or defuse it and theres no other card to save you besides defuse.

Its very fun but you cant do special combos.

It wont let us but packs idk why.

When playing solo game the computer cheats, and not only on the most difficult setting. Countless times we’ve played the card that supposedly makes it so they dont know which card theyre playing but theyll always still play the card they need. But when the situation is reversed, you have to waste 3-5 cards to get to the Defuse card. Frustrating as H%#@ Other than that, the multiplayer version is a lot of fun. All the kids loved it. As well as us adults. Expansion packs are great. Would love a way to make a custom deck with cards selected from purchased decks. Or a couple ideas for special cards; a variant of the Steal a Card where the victim can protect 1-2 cards and the attacker gets to choose from the rest(Face down to him or her so they still dont know what theyre getting). A fake Exploding Cat card that looks like the real ones but nobody knows which one is fake until picked up. When selected player puts back in deck like a normal Exploding Kitten and he or she can distinguish the fake one in the deck when getting to peek at the deck, until picked up by someone else. Very fun game. Keep the expansion decks coming as they add to the variety and make the game more re-playable.

Would be 5 stars if it had family in app purchase sharing.

Love the game but will more players be added? Wish it was more than 5.

Seems like a good game but we could not figure out how to use a defuse. Idk why thats not automatic. We couldnt drag the bomb at all.

When trying to buy expansion pack nothing happens? Really wanna buy them all.

It was kinda fun but we ultimately just wasted a dollar the board games are way better.

Every time we try to redeem a code, it wont work. When we hold down the little kitten by the name, it wont bring us to the code area. Any tips? We held it down for 10 seconds all the way up to more than a minute. Can anyone help us? We really want those skins lol.
