Description:

Exploding Kittens is a card game like Russian Roulette. You'll have a deck of cards containing some Exploding Kittens. You play the game by putting the deck face down and taking turns drawing cards off the top.

The deck contains different cards that let you avoid exploding by checking at cards before you draw (see the future) , forcing your opponent to draw multiple cards (attack), or shuffling the deck, etc..

The game goes on and becomes more intense because fewer cards left means a greater chance of drawing the Exploding Kitten. When you explode, you lose. When you don't explode, you win and all of the other cards.

Setup

Remove all the Exploding Kittens 4 and Defuse cards 6 from the deck.

Shuffle the remaining deck and deal 4 cards face down to each player.

Deal 1 Defuse card to each player so that everyone has a hand of 5 cards total. Keep your hand secret.

Insert enough Exploding Kittens back into the deck so that there is 1 fewer than the number of people playing. Remove any extra Exploding Kittens from the game.

Insert the extra Defuse cards back in the deck. …



Combos are any group of cards played at the same time. When you play combos, ignore the instructions on the cards and do the following instead:

Two of a kind

Playing Pairs (where you get to steal a random card from another player) no longer only applies to cards with no instructions on them, it now applies to any cards in the deck with the same icon in their corners.

Three of a kind

Exactly the same as Two of a Kind, but you get to name the card you want from the other player. If they have it, you get to take it. If not, you get nothing. …



Setup

  1. Remove the Imploding Kitten 1 from the expansion deck, and all of the Exploding Kittens 4 and Defuse Cards 6 from your main game deck.

  2. Combine the 19 remaining expansion cards with the rest of the cards from the main game deck. Note: You don't have to play with all of the expansion cards. You can selectively insert your favorite expansion cards into any Exploding Kittens deck. …
