Play the most-funded game in Kickstarter history anywhere with the Exploding Kittens® Official mobile game! The mobile version of the game is available now, including the Party Pack, Betrayal, Streaking Kittens, and the all new Barking Kittens expansion! Play with friends or strangers in online play, challenge the AI, or play offline with friends face-to-face! 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.

  • Multi player Aggro, Single-player annoyed yawn.

    By Westonianism
    Although ingenious in design, and with a potential for charming gameplay, some distinct drawbacks plague this app. The multiplayer environment has become awash with extremely aggressive players. While not the developer’s fault, they have nonetheless allowed the problem to worsen. Players cannot disable haptics, so ‘nagging’ seems to be perpetual, and limitless. This detracts mightily from the appeal of the multiplayer experience. The servers rarely provide a full table of players for the premium content. Single player mode provides a weakly-imagined AI deployed with somewhat unabashed ‘Blue Turtle Shell’ logic. The AI plays the best card even when ‘blinded’ with implausible regularity. This makes winning more a function of luck than skill. With no stats other than win/loss, the single player game feels watery already, and the lack of AI multiplayer channels this sensation into a canal of low-stakes confrontation. There are many good points to this game, and the IRL version is brilliant, but quality-of-experience has declined and should be addressed.
  • Yes!

    I love the card game, and the app. This is sooo good. I love it.
  • Good game

    By smerylicious
    What would make it better is to have it be possible to be sorted into a type of game at random. It’s hard to get a group together for the less popular decks
  • Honestly better than Uno

    By fornite_roblox45r5
    I got this game 2 weeks ago, been playing it almost every day lol. I love it all, its the best and only cat card game you’ll find out there and is truly unique is offers a fair experience for players that don’t want to buy card packs. Since i’ve loved this game for a while now i might buy some stuff. I like it better than Uno, don’t even play uno a lot anymore lol. Good job developers, like too see more :))
  • Super fun

    Super fun game irl, and just as fun online
  • Defusing is weird

    By MikeMit99
    Seems like a good game but I could not figure out how to use a defuse. Idk why that’s not automatic. I couldn’t drag the bomb at all
  • Latency issues, lack of variety, game cheats

    By Rustymeister
    The game kicks people out all the time on numerous devices. The cards get dull after awhile and buying more is a bandaid. The worst part of the computer player cheats, big time! On expert, you can blind him with Cat butt and have the exploding kitten next in line and he will immediately lay the shuffle down, several games in a row it did this, instead of drawing a card or placing a different one. I am a skilled player, but the computer on expert beats me almost every time by cheating as if he can see the cards in the deck and my cards. Until they fix this, it remains 1 star.
  • Cheaters - FIX IT

    By always_cola
    I play this game daily and have paid for all the additional material as a thank you for the urs of joy it brings. With the barking kittens update there is a glitch now that players are exploiting to steal cards. The integrity of the game is lost. It so gd annoying. I have asked for a patch to be made but it is not or has not happened. These opponents are ruining a great game and there is no way to punish or ban them
  • Offensive to Christians

    By TorrentRage
    I wanted to like this game, and I played a few matches against the AI, but didn’t really find it very exciting. I was further put off by the goofy looking “Jesus” picture that you can select as your avatar. I’m not sure whether or not the developers realize (or care), but that is highly offensive to Christians. I fail to see how that adds anything to the game, or how offending your customers is a good business strategy. As for me, I will not be purchasing any more apps from this developer.
