Creat​ed by Elan Lee (Xbox, ARGs), Matthew Inman (The Oatmeal), and Shane Small (Xbox, Marvel).


- Exploding Kittens is a multiplayer card game for people who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats.

- Play with 2 to 5 players across multiple phones in the same room, or online with friends or strangers

- New cards exclusive to the digital version of Exploding Kittens

- The digital version of the most backed game in Kickstarter history

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


Almost as fun as having a real deck  steverus07  5 star

Gameplay is fast! It’d be nice to have the option of larger decks, but this is a lot of fun for a small group. If you really like it, go buy a deck and play!


EPIC  Finnanniganns  4 star

Me being a loyal Kickstarter fan, I got really excited to see Exploding Kittens as a mobile game. It is also really worth the two dollars. The only issue I have is that everything is so expensive. If they could tone down (or even make free) the prices, I would give this a full five stars for this game. Keep it up, Kickstarter!!!


I’m scared  sannsun  1 star

I bought it and had fun for a while, then I stopped playing for a while. I was deleting apps I don’t play and I saw it, I can’t delete it. And it’s renamed projectbombsquad. I’m scared


As great an app as it is a card game!  Greedreamer  5 star

The whole family loves the card game. We play at home & then a lot over holidays with extended family. This app feels like a continuation of our games & brings back the joyous feeling of playing with family.


😕😐😕😐😑😐😑😕  jessie5506  2 star

Ok I can’t play a round anymore, it says “there was a problem” and it would say disconnected, please fix it game creators


Absolutely love it, but some tweaks needed  Lamabossdude  5 star

Love the game, but the nag to make your opponents phone buzz is super disruptive to others and extremely annoying to you. I think it was a good idea but should be made so that when you mute a player they stop nagging you. The other thing is that I think you should be able to use cards you have bought and mix / remove them with other decks. For example: I love the kitty cat box card, but I think the cat butt ruins the game, so being able to make a match that uses the box and not the butt. That’s my feedback, I hope a developer sees this and improves the game, but as a patron backer and superfan of the card game, I would absolutely recommend this mobile app in any form!


Pretty cool but...  vondiehmon  3 star

I have the actual card game with all of the expansions. This app is almost exactly the same as the game. The reason I took off two stars is because in the app you cannot put down doubles or triples or five different cards. If this is put into the app, I will then rated five stars.


Love the game but....  Shadowpiper  1 star

I love the game. We own the card game in my home. The graphics are good, gameplay is awesome, but to have to be nickeled and dimed for avatars and such, leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I agree with previous posts that there should be achievements to unlock. Even being able to connect permanently with friends so we all can play together without having to share a passcode all of the time. Being able to add random people you play with would be nice too. This game has so much potential, I’m hoping that money they make on the little things results in a big update.


Great game  me❤️tacocats  5 star

Brought the physical first  Skraith  5 star

Only just buying the physical card game today I thought I would get some practice on the app first and I am absolutely LOVING THIS GAME!!!

Dum ba plump#the dodo

its good for people  Dum ba plump#the dodo  5 star

i bought the core game and got a code so i got the game its worth the money and has hours of fun i suggest for kids over the age of 8 or more


Fun but needs something new  Abmurray  5 star

This game is awesome, but it gets boring after a while since there is no point besides beating the cpu and your friends a couple of times. Adding a ranking system or some cards you could earn or something like that would be so cool. Something to keep people playing.


OMG I LOVE IT  Asha.Bibo  5 star

This is the best game EVER!!! I have the card game and I thought I would try this and I am HOOKED

Daym oh

Game breaking bug  Daym oh  3 star

Experiencing an issue with my skip cards against Kitt-e, where 4 out of 9 games I have played the several (but not all) of my skip cards would do nothing. Have only had the game for a day, and only thing I have changed is set my avatar to purple. Playing on iPhone 7+ with iOS 12.1 I think


I’m a little disappointed he  qwjnnnhyhvbhg  2 star

Good game


So much fun  ggg1012456  5 star

Love it. So much fun. Hoping for more interesting updates in the future. Would love to see ability to see how many games you’ve won and show it off lol. Keep up the great work. Best thing I’ve played in forever. 😂😂😂😂😂

:/ -/ ;/ :)

Great game  :/ -/ ;/ :)  4 star

I loved it now i dont need friends to play but if you loved the nope card then it doesn’t come with the base game


Bots cheat  TheDarkWolfMC  4 star

The game dose have a bit of luck with it but at the same time when playing vs bots your going to have a bad time, I’ve seen countless times a bot will suddenly throw down a shuffle or skip when it knows there’s a exploding card or even better self slaps when they know there defuse card that you would get. Would be nice if the bots didn’t know what there next card was


Help, iPhone XR  Deerek6969  5 star

This game is worth the money and I’ve played it for a while. However, I got a new phone and the screen doesn’t fit well with my iPhone XR. Please update a better screen compatibility, thanks!


Juvenile , like that’s a bad thing  thebuddhahead  5 star

Challenging. Silly. Juvenile bathroom humor. Very addictive. It takes time to learn good strategies. Do have problems joining games sometimes. I’ve bought all the add-one, so I must like it. I bought in to the Kickstarter which started the original physical version of the game. So, I am hooked. Maybe you’ll be too.

Dade Shark

Fun, but pairing with STRANGERS is difficult  Dade Shark  4 star

Something needs to be done about playing with others. You can spend 5-10 minutes trying to get lucky enough to get at a table of 3 or 4. Otherwise your stuck waiting alone or playing one on one... & let’s be honest... 1vs1 isn’t that fun. A lobby sowing games in progress or available tables would be great! Otherwise the game is awesome!

Mr chili

Buggy in streaking expansion deck  Mr chili  1 star

I love this game, but it has some major flaws with the card that lets you hold a exploding kitten. It happens in the end you can grab the last card that is an exploding kitten if you have this card. The worst this bug is that sometimes if you are cat butted (you cannot see your card) it and you throw away your card that lets you hold the kitten and explode, it’ll freeze and won’t let you continue. I hope this will be fixed in the futre. Otherwise, is a great game.


So good  jbubycyv  5 star

This game is so good I can’t wait for v2 cus I have only hade it for one day and I played it all night


Amazingly sad 😢/❤️  Luke1234567891011121314  4 star

Exploding kittens is a great game the sad thing is you have to pay for most of it (you have to pay for the good level/modes)


Love the game  Redishot2  5 star

My coworkers and I play this every day at lunch using the play with friends feature. For our group, 5 players is sometimes too few. I’d love to be able to spectate the game and watch the action, even if I can’t play.


Good game, but one thing  apexundead  4 star

This is a very good game, but I keep getting disconnected from online games. My internet is ok but I keep getting disconnect, please fix

Fix coming?

So much fun  Fix coming?  5 star

Exploding kittens is so much fun I play it every day and it’s definitely worth the money!


Splody  The_Stewart  5 star

Exploding Kittens the app is even better than the physical card game (although I does lack the ability to see the tears of your opponents when they explode). If you’re unfamiliar with the game, you draw a card from the deck and hope it’s not a kitten. If it is, boom! You’re out, unless you have a defuse card. You can play as many cards as you want before drawing a card but drawing a card ends your turn. Your goal is to get all the other players to explode by forcing the other players to take extra turns, skip your turn, and other tricks. Drawing a card is nerve wracking but this version puts a probability meter up so the tension is heightened. Games are usually a few minutes each. With the ability to start a game online, it’s a great way to kill time. You can choose a variety of prewritten messages to post so players get a sense of the tension from the other opponents if the wish to post. In-app purchases let you play with a more varied deck. I’ve not picked up any of the expansion packs yet. But it is tempting to change the way to play with new cards. All in all, good game. Why not get a copy yourself and jump into an online game. You might just come up against me!


Just ok  Tess986  3 star

Very glitchy but when it works it’s good


DISAPPOINTED  Bobster🦀  1 star



Rubbish  [email protected]  1 star

The test of any game is, if a kid can pick it up, play it and have fun with it! Well guess what? I made the mistake of buying this game for my 7 year old granddaughter. Firstly you HAVE to be connected to the net for it, so travelling in the car it was useless. When we got where we were going, she was keen to try it. Got it out again and we got two reactions from her. Confusion and disappointment. She wasn’t able to make any sense of this game whatsoever. She was disappointed because she was looking forward to playing it. A case like this makes you understand why people should have the right to try something like this before they pay for it, or have a period in which to reclaim your money. Total waste of time, total waste of money. DO NOT BUY THIS APP.


Just like the card game  Seif905  4 star

Knocking a star off as for the price of the app itself, all decks should be available without in-app purchases. The game is great though!!


Wow!  Jaheirauuu  5 star

Really really good game! My best recommendations!


Work in progress  kmjones77  4 star

Love the game. Could do with one or two additions. Such as win loss history.


Excellent  Sean84irl  5 star

A great version of a fantastic card game.


Needs NOPE :) and NSFW Deck  GPruts  4 star

Great game, though the optional party deck is a bit too annoying I think. It really needs the Nope cards as they exist in the real card game. Not as much fun without it, it's too static. Also make the NSFW deck available as add on please!


Even better than the card game  ArinGhend  5 star

Love it!
