Exploding Kittens

Fan of The Oatmeal? Then you’ll want to get your grubby paws on a copy of Exploding Kittens. This fast-paced card game plays not unlike Russian Roulette in that you draw a card each turn and hope not to stumble upon an exploding kitten card, which entails certain death — unless you defuse it with a laser pointer, catnip sandwich, or other distraction. Alternately, use cards to rearrange the top of the deck, skip your draw or your turn, or summon a cat card, strategically to avoid, or at least delay, the inevitable, and increase the odds that your opponents explode instead. And since all the art is hilariously drawn by Matthew Inman himself, shuffling through the cards is nearly as entertaining as playing the game itself.
