Exploding Kittens Game Fundraising Breaks Kickstarter Record

The most popular, single Kickstarter campaign ever is for the upcoming card game Exploding Kittens with over 219,000 supporters that was the third-biggest Kickstarter moneymaker ever with approximately 8.8 million dollars.


Combine action-packed blowups with cute animal pets for an ultimate success. In this case, the Exploding Kittens Kickstarter campaign was a giant success with many backers who will enjoy the game. If Kickstarter fundraisers do not reach their goal, then donors are not charged.

Exploding Kittens will be a “highly strategic kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette” with attack cards and skip turn cards also in the card mix.  Picking an exploding kitten card ends the game with a loss while special “defusal” cards (e.g. using catnip and laser pointers) can calm down kittens.

Want the game? Go to www.explodingkittens.com for the mailing list sign-up. Release date is currently set for some time in July 2015…maybe they have special sound chips in the exploding kitten cards. Will you be getting in on this unique card game?
