Exploding Kittens


By: Connor Lenahan

Today’ post marks the 639th in a row here on Unbreakable and I’m fairly certain it has the weirdest headline of any of those by a country mile. Today we will be talking about, that’s right, you guessed it, Exploding Kittens.

Now let’s be clear, I am not actually condoning strapping dynamite to Mr. Wuss Wuss and seeing what happens. That helps no one. But I am condoning playing Exploding Kittens the card game.

A few weeks ago my roommates Wagner Tong and Arie Orchanian ordered up the game on Amazon and promptly turned our suite into a war zone. Left and right fur balls were going kaboom. One game turned into two and a half hour marathon sessions. Friendships were tested, wits challenged, critters obliterated. This game is, for lack of a better term, the bomb.

Exploding Kittens is, and this is relatively shocking, essentially a more intense version of Uno. Players draw cards and must try to strategically avoid the exploding kitten in the deck. Think of it like Russian Roulette with more strategy and explosions.

Here’s a video that explains the rules of the game:

I have just in the last few minutes picked up my own copy of the game from my mailbox. Who want’s to play?
