Exploding Kittens Card Game — Best Family Fun
Next is a card game for those who enjoy cats, blasts, laser weapons, and the occasional lamb. Confused? Don't be. In Exploding Kittens, players draw cards until they draw a blowing-up kitten, at which point they explode, are down for the count, and are eliminated from the game — unless that player has a defuse card. Aside from the exploding kittens, the rest of the deck's cards are used to move, minimize, or prevent the exploding kittens by using items such as laser pointers, tummy rubs, and cat food sandwiches. The game is suitable for a plethora of events and all ages. This card game is another must-have, with over 10 million units sold all around the globe.
