The objective of this game is to avoid getting an Exploding Kitten card and be the last player left. Players take turns drawing cards until someone draws an exploding kitten and loses the game. To lower the chances of picking up an exploding kitten card, this game allows you to peek at the cards before you draw which allows you to force your opponent to draw multiple cards or shuffle the deck. The game gets more intense towards the end as fewer cards left in the deck means a higher possibility of drawing the Exploding Kitten card. The most enjoyable part of the game is to utilise your card’s special effect and successfully getting other players to explode.
