I am totally a fan of Matthew Inman’s The Oatmeal. He writes a bunch of different comics that has a unique art style that essentially has a distinctive view on everyday life. Like, in the most obnoxious of ways *cough* Exploding Kittens *cough*, The Oatmeal understands me.
So naturally when I saw The Oatmeal had released a mobile game called Exploding Kittens, I had to jump on this opportunity and buy it. It’s based off of the card game that The Oatmeal had released, but is available to be played online with strangers all over the world and with friends over your smart phone.
The objective of Exploding Kittens is to not get the exploding kitten, and when you do you have to try your best defuse it and to not explode, but get your friends to explode.
It’s a fun, fast paced game where you have to outsmart your fellow card players in order not de in a terrible way. It’s a fast paced game where you have to strategize how to get your fellow card players to explode instead of you.
I had a blast with Exploding Kittens, and found a great strategy in order to win. It’s a game to laugh at and not to take too seriously. I had fun getting into slapping battles with other card players to make it their turn, 6 turns in a row knowing that they would probably explode. Sometimes that gets turned on me and I have to go 8 turns. Either way, I had a blast or got blasted.
Lately though, whenever I try to play Exploding Kittens online with strangers, I haven’t been able to find a game to join which makes me sad. I love playing Exploding Kittens. So, if anyone wants to play it let me know and I’ll totally join in! I miss this game and for the past month I haven’t been able to play with anyone.
So, if you want to buy a fun game for $1.99 off of iTunes or Google Play, and you have a fun morbid sense of humor… And you enjoy the things that The Oatmeal creates, you may enjoy Exploding Kittens. Come play with me!
