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.

This games I cool!  Dafortniteboss  4 star

I love this game it is fun. if you would make the game cheaper it would be better.


Good game. Needs an acheievement or ranking system.  JawneeWin  4 star

This game is awesome. However, I deducted one star due to a lack of am achievement or ranking system. There needs to be a system to motivate competition.


Super Fun!  Sammypj  5 star

I love this game so much! You can play with other people and I think it’s just really unique and funny! It makes me laugh and even if I lose, I love playing this!

Toddler Tantrum

Fun even without in-app purchases  Toddler Tantrum  4 star

My family loves the card game version. Now we play this together when stuck somewhere waiting for something to happen.


Very fun game!  catsareprettydarncool  5 star

Just got the game yesterday and spent a good amount of time playing it! I highly recommend it, it’s fun!


Play this game  Chameleman  5 star

Awesome game


Amazing! But I wish there was more  Gerfgghhhh  5 star

The game is super fun! I love playing it! But I wish there was more variation in the cards. Like instead of just having the cat litter as the shuffle, I wish there was like just different pictures for the cards like Abracrab Lincoln and the electromagnetic Pomeranian storm. Also, sometimes the slaps can just ruin it for you because a person can play like three slaps and make you take five turns. I’ve lost three games because I’ve been slapped three times and had to take five turns. But the game really is fun and a great time killer.


Awesome Game  Aaron4Tarot  5 star

I played this game with friends with actual cards. So much fun!!! Everyone gets so competitive and hate drawing cards towards the end. Fun game for everyone. Young or adult it’s awesome. And this version on the app makes it more fun with the sound effects lol.


Crashes  Romarnes  3 star

Taking uno a step up. Fun if it didn’t crash so often


need more improvement  Natanaelnya  5 star

maybe you can add something like leaderboards or maybe achievment to makes this game more fun to play.

ty devs

Great Game, some features you should add  ty devs  5 star

I love this game, it’s one of my favourite games for iOS. Even so, there is still a bit left to desire. I would like to see more additions to single player such as a tournament mode, that way people will be more inclined to play the game. You can get certain avatars after being a certain amount of tournaments. One other addition I think you should make is to have a larger single player mode. Having more than one AI playing the single player mode would be really fun. So instead of it being 1v1 it’s more like 1v1v1v1 or however many players you choose. I love this game and I will continue to support it and if Bears vs Babies ever gets a mobile port, you can count on myself and others to buy that as well.


It feels so wrong but yet so right kinda  yobro4573  5 star

I love this games I am going to buy the game online the real version but I was expecting a little more out of the single player mode I have had this game for a day and I already completed the single player mode maybe add a play ai selection so you choose how many computer players you want in a game and difficulty instead of one on one short message is add more stuff to single player mode but best card game / board game ever bye thx!!!

Kayotic pro

Very good game but...  Kayotic pro  4 star

This is a very nice and fun game to play with friends, family or strangers. I have played this for a while now and would like to see new decks and avatars. Please take thought of my request, as I’m guessing that’s what most people want. Through and through I love this game and would recommend getting it.

New Bugs  Xiongmao Macao  3 star

Updated to the latest version. Bug prevents you using Steal Card.... you can’t select any player to steal from, clock just times out.

ThaCoolGamerz on YouTube

Amazingly Awesome!  ThaCoolGamerz on YouTube  4 star

I love this card game! It is entertaining, addicting and funny! But obviously, like most app versions of card games, it would be way more fun to play in real life, with the actual cards.

the anonymus critic

Amazing  the anonymus critic  4 star

While it’s not as good as the physical version and some of the cards are changed it is still lots of fun to play and win Would recommend Especially if you have friends that play it too

Pascall annoyed

Awesome  Pascall annoyed  4 star

This is a really awesome game I love it.

Pixel Master 505

Updates  Pixel Master 505  3 star

Yes I know, this game is quite small but all I want or more updates for the game, it's almost been a year now and there have been no updates. Maybe add the expansion Imploding Kittens and maybe a new game mode and the game will start to gain more attention... Overall, it is a pretty good game and I think (with a bit more free content) would be worth the money. 3/5 Stars


Addicting  hellomisscasey  5 star

Never thought I would, but I did and here am I 2:18am in the morning playing this lol.


Very addictive  Urjavdpshekdhkbxksjxksbsldbak  5 star

This is a pretty fun game, and I’ve only had it for a few days and it’s really addictive. Would recommend to anyone else, for 2 dollars it’s a good game.

im really frustrated

Local play bug  im really frustrated  4 star

Hi, I rated this game 4 stars because I love this game but I was trying to play face to face with my family of 4 and it glitched. all four devices had the latest update but it still glitched and didn’t let me play. I didn’t have any trouble with 3 players. Please fix this and I will rerate this to 5 stars.


Great, but...  KanyeLoVeRrR  5 star

Let me start off by saying I love this game and I love it even more now that they added the whole new single player mode. Now that my liking is out of the way, let me get to the nitty-gritty. First off: they need to add a mechanism of choosing the amount of players you want. I don’t like playing with so many people all the time... And second: I know this is impossible, but I am kind of sad that nope Cards can’t be played and normal cards don’t work as they normally do. But I love the game!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Edit: Wanted to add that in the update the code option was removed, leaving me with a code for an extension pack and nowhere to put it in, pls fix. Still giving it five stars though.

A wild pikachu

I LOVE DIS GAME  A wild pikachu  5 star



Pass and Play  BenAcestar  4 star

Love the game but it’d be nice to have a pass and play mode for playing with friends in the room


So funny!!  teryl19  5 star

Love all the sound effects!!! Love this game!! Can play with family and friends anywhere, anytime!! Love it!!

Hello I Am Human

Great Game!  Hello I Am Human  5 star

Exploding Kittens is very entertaining, but, as much as I love it, it can get boring. I like that you can now play single-player, but the A. I. is actually a whole lot harder to beat than most actual people. I would recommend this game to anyone who knows the difference between strategy and luck.

-cheese is good💩🧀

Amazing and very fun game but could use some new features.  -cheese is good💩🧀  5 star

Lemme start with saying that this game is sooooooooo fun. I would highly recommend it to anyone. I’m also enjoying the new single player mode. One thing I would suggest is that for your avatar, add a random button so for those of us who can’t choose one can have someone pick it for us. Another suggestion is have more of a restriction on what you can name yourself. I have had problems with people having inappropriate names and I have to leave the game because I felt offended by it. Other then those two things this game it perfect and very very fun.

miss esby

Was drunk when I did this review  miss esby  5 star

I was playing this game with myself on the expert mode and I got the exploding kitten and I put it on the bottom and I had two cards left and I drew the exploding kitten. This means that the algorithm is programmed to cheat people from their wins. I should’ve won that game but I didn’t because the people who should have made sure that the Exploding kitten was on the bottom did not so now I’m really mad at the stupid game even though it’s one of my favorite games I have ever play mine whole entire life. Mostly because of the sound effects and also the cool weird cards. But I’m still mad that I lost the game so that’s why I’m giving it a two star review because I should’ve won the game because I know where I put the exploding kittens and then I drew it and I shouldn’t have brought it because there was two cars left. So they’re just trying to cheat you. But I still love the oatmeal. Also this may be a drunk review. I’m going to go ahead and put five reviews as I know I’m drunk and I’m just mad at the game that I’ve lost. And also I don’t know what else. Nobody’s gonna read this so doesn’t matter. My life is terrible. But that’s OK because I have this game.


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!


Amazing  Elbow83  5 star

Best card game ever had become best app game. Backed you on Kickstarter and will back you many more times!


Brilliant fun  Wile1000  5 star

Bought the card game, then the expansion pack, now the smartphone game and the add ons! Too much fun.
