Exploding Kittens-iOS-01The popular card/board game Exploding Kittens became the “most-funded game in Kickstarter history” and is now available on iOS devices. Just like its traditional counterpart, “Exploding Kittens is a multiplayer card game for people who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats.”

The 2-5 player digital version adds new cards, along with the old favorites in what is described as a “highly-strategic, kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette.” Players continually draw cards until someone gets the Exploding Kitten and well, they explode. But it gets a lot more strategic than that with Defuse cards and other ways to avoid the end-times. It should be noted, the game is currently only available as a local Bluetooth/WLAN multiplayer experience, at least for now.

If the digital version doesn’t catch your attention, the traditional sets come in two flavors: regular and NSFW on Amazon for $20 Prime shipped.

Exploding Kittens is available now on the App Store for $1.99, with all in-app purchases available for free during a limited launch period.

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.
