Exploding Kittens, the most-funded game in Kickstarter history, is now available for Android!

Creat​ed by Elan Lee (Xbox, ARGs), Matthew Inman (The Oatmeal), and Shane Small (Xbox, Marvel).


- Exploding Kittens is a multiplayer card game for people who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats.

- Play with 2 to 5 friends or strangers online

- All art illustrated by The Oatmeal

- New cards exclusive to the digital version of Exploding Kittens

- The digital version of the most backed game in Kickstarter history

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.

Exploding Kittens is a paid app in which optional game features may be purchased with real money. You must be at least 13 years old to download and play. There is also an option to compete online against strangers and resulting data transfer charges may apply. Player usernames and expressions are their own.

    Exploding Kittens is an amazing game but this app doesn't have much going for it. It does a good job of implementing the board game into mobile devices but that's all the app contains. It doesn't record your wins and loses, it doesn't allow you to connect to Facebook or other social media, there's no other real mini games except for other expansions of the game, and there's too many in-app purchases since the app costs money. The app needs to either be free or contain more things to do. Even as much as keeping track of wins and loses. I don't regret buying this game but it doesn't contain as much as I hoped for Full Review

    New favorite app. Got the card game for Christmas and we can't stop playing! The app is equally fun. Getting used to sliding the cards. Sometimes my phone doesn't register the slide and I run out of time. I may be doing it wrong though. Nice that you can invite friends despite type of phone. Android vs apple. Or ipod. Would love to see on Windows 10 app store. Also can play with strangers. Very creative and diabolically fun. Hilarious! Keep putting out extensions! Full Review

    Please stop complaining about the optional purchases! You get an amazing $20 game (if you buy the physical cards) with NO ADS for only $2! "Wahh, I want more for my mere $2, let me have everything!" People are unbelievable, be happy playing a great game for pocket change! Full Review

    Great app to a great game! Loads of fun! However, I have one complaint. Why is there not an offline/pass and play mode? You add those simple features and some sort of statistics page, then I'll give it five stars. Full Review

    Overall this game is great ,it's funny and just a great experience. But the only issue is when I try to play a card sometimes it glitches. And I lose the card without being able to actually play it. And it remains on my screen as if I actually have it . I can't even move it . If you could fix that it would be awesome! One other issue is the code I was given to unlock a special free gift didn't work. Which I really wanted to work ;-; ;-; Full Review

    Great game, and well worth the money that I spent on it whilst it was on offer. Having not played the card game before, took a few games to get into the mechanics, but explanatory enough. Only downside is the In App Purchases. A few too many of these (additional decks, avatars) for a paid game. Full Review

    Luca Stancu Published date: May 1, 2017

    The game itself is nice, good controls, pleasant graphics, decent sounds.. but it has no purpose. There is no currency, no leveling, not even statistics. If you played 1000 games or just 1 its the same thing. Atleast some personal stats would be good, showing you how many games you've played, how many times you survived and so on. Full Review

    Shaun Callahan Published date: August 31, 2017

    I love this game, I wish it was free so my friends would get it but I bought the game both card packs and a character pack and this game is really fun. I just wish that when you tap on a card and it pulls it forward, you could tap again to play it. I don't know if I'm just not able to get it to work and it's actually a thing but if not then I hope it is added in. Full Review

    Tami S Published date: August 6, 2017

    A bit more explanation on what each card does would be a good addition..... As in some cards allow multiple actions and some don't, and that would be good to know ahead of time. Vibrating timer reminder is annoying. It is funny and entertaining, but not sure if it will hold attention long enough to be worth buying the extra packs and avatars. Like the comic, so still definitely worth the few bucks I spent on it Full Review

    Omg I am crying from laughing so hard, the last game had me in stitches. Soooooo fun and hilarious with the right players. I have not laughed this hard with an app EVER. Watch out... There are some real sneaky players in this one but its fun. I haven't won once yet but still having a blast. Apparently it's all I'm having. Blast after blast after blast. But wow. Fun! Worth every penny. :) Full Review

    I really do want to like this game, however I am yet to finish a game without disconnecting, despite many attempts. Please fix this as soon as possible. Also, a single player vs bots and local play would be great. The fact that you need to buy things like packs and avatars sucks considering it's a payed game. Not cool, developers. Full Review

    For an app version of the game its fantastic. It delivers a fun fast hilarious game. You dont need w/l and social links. Take a screenshot if you win. This is exactly what it should be. Played one game and bought all add ons. Great game. Own all physical games. This gives me the satisfaction when i need to Explode some people. Keep it up with more desks. Maybe a way to preview addons Full Review

    Great game super fun. Love the card game love the phone app. Only complaint is it's a purchase game and I still have to spend money on more decks and avatars. Let me earn avatars from a reward system. Would also like to see an AI mode. A lot of time on a with no mobile access iwoukd love to still play a simple quick game. Still a must buy. Full Review

    Great game, and fun to play with friends but needs serious optimization. It's almost as though it runs exclusively on my phones' CPU and causes it to heat up quite badly. Could be phone specific but other lightweight games (EG. Monopoly, Fallout: Shelter) run fine. Full Review

    Karl Matless Published date: April 28, 2017

    I've been thinking about trying this card game for a while so when i saw the app version i snapped it up without a second thought. The tutorial could better explain the object of the game and the return the kitten mechanic was not immediately obvious but once you get it the game is fun and simple. Full Review

    Too addicting. Can't stahp. There are some problems though: 1. Rematch with strangers is weird. Four players agreed to rematch, but only two of us are left after the matchmaking. 2. Was hoping for local multiplayer (without internet connection). 3. No win-loss record? Full Review

    Cody S. Published date: January 5, 2018

    I adore this game. I really have no complaints at all. It's easy to learn, and is very entertaining. My only idea for improvement would be to offer the option to invite strangers into games with your friends because if you only have one friend who wants to play it's a 1-v-1 which is kind of boring.

    Matthew Dempsey Published date: May 1, 2017

    The game itself is fantastic fun and the app is well made. I've had almost no issues, which is good considering the online functionalities! However, the game lacks any overall purpose. There's no statistics or levels, and so after a while you don't feel as much reason to keep playing. I appreciate the developers are maybe trying to get that vibe as if you were just playing a card game in real life, so it should just be the fun of the game that matters, but when you're by yourself you get bored of it after a while! Especially when you've learnt what all the cards do and what are good tactics. It just needs some more game elements to it to make it more gripping and worthwhile to keep playing. Full Review

    David Hosler Published date: May 5, 2017

    Awesome game. Great controls, great graphics. Quick matchmaking. Multiple card sets. I felt bad for only paying 10p on the sale, so I bought both expansions. You should add challenges and stats or rankings. (Its not all luck) Can't wait for imploding kittens... ;) Good job! Btw if you like this even a bit buy the real card game. It's waaaaaaayyyy better.

    I don't usually get to play card games IRL because I don't have multiple friends available all at the same time to get together for a few hours. As soon as I saw that this card game became an app I snatched it up on my iPad. Now that I have an Android device I had to gobble this app back up; repurchased it and all the DLC and cosmetics. The Oatmeal is an awesome webcomic and he made an awesome game. The sound effects are perfect, the graphics are perfect, the gameplay is smooth and the controls and interface are intuitive. Thankfully other people also enjoy this game because it doesn't take long to find online opponents so there's a healthy active player base. Definitely worth the purchase to play the base game and I also recommend purchasing both DLCs. The avatars, however, are like glitter on unicorn puke: purchase only if you want to further support the devs. Full Review

    Best $2 I've spent in a while. I don't like the price of the upgraded decks in game, but the app and game itself are awesome! Update : I'm downgrading my review from 5 stars to 4. The game is great, app is great, but dang this game is a battery drain... Pretty much can only play if plugged in. Also there is a glitch where if someone leaves the game it can become their turn and get stuck... And everyone just has to quit. Full Review

    Leyla Prismriver Published date: May 17, 2017

    The app is great! You can play with your friends or public! Only problem the app has is... it's expensive. It is a paid app yet almost 80% of avatars/chats inside are paid. And 2/3 decks are paid. I'm no cheapskate. I have hundreds of paid games on many platforms, so no bias. I understand this isn't a cheap game, but still it is a paid game, asking for multiple purchases is... At least the avatars or the decks should be unlockable in other non-monetary ways. Maybe try producing more decks so at least 3/6 decks are free. Full Review

    Andrew Scarle Published date: January 3, 2018

    A good game, weird that it doesn't have all the cards, such as the "nope" cards from real life sets and would prefer at least an option that is card for card the same as real life. Would like to have some kind of friends list, to be able to play players I enjoyed playing with previously. Also the "rematch" option never works correctly and needs fixing. Me and friends often play together, and its a bit of a pain to setup a new host and share numbers every game. Full Review

    Max Johnson Published date: January 7, 2018

    I really like this game, and I highly recommend it. It is a lot of fun, and worth the price. I just have a few suggestions that would make the game more full, and fun. I wish there was a pass and play version to play in person on one device. They could add like a reward system to make playing, and winning games more fulfilling, and worth it. No matter what, you should get this game. What is here right now is fantastic! Full Review

    Bob Burt Published date: May 1, 2017

    Quite different to the physical card game but really, really fun to play. Far too many in app purchases for my liking, but I won't be buying them anyway unless that reduce the cost, so its a non issue for me. The base game is enough fun to warrant the usual £1.99 price tag Full Review

    Kevyn Hansyn Published date: November 1, 2017

    Found this thru the Twitch Gaming convention over the weekend. They mentioned that it was in the app store, I miss this game and its just too much fun to put down at times. Probably one of my favorite purchases to date, and its not expensive at all. Full Review

    Matt Overbury Published date: August 17, 2017

    There is a silly bug with the shuffle card that I've noticed. If you shuffle the deck but instantly take a card without giving it enough time to shuffle, the cards remain the same. The shuffle for the start of the deck is not very random at all. One exploding kitten is guaranteed at least 90% of the time in the first five cards... Please update your shuffle algorithm. Full Review

    edward luck Published date: May 4, 2017

    Absolutely love this game. One improvement is that if I steal a card from someone and they rage quit, I've wasted a card. Could you have it so if they quit after being targeted with a steal card you get a random card from their hand? Full Review

    CapnAwesome 05 Published date: June 21, 2017

    The game is a quick version of the card game (with 2 new card packs) yet i'd like it even more if they added this: a randomized cutscene where the cat explodes (like the card game). The gameplay is simple and easy to learn and the graphics + sounds are great! You should get this game, even with the 2 dollar price tag (yet both expansions and all character packs cost 2 dollars (although you can exploit the free demo game of the expansions to be longer by always pressing rematch)) Now if you'll excuse me I'm gonna save a kitten from exploding.

    I honestly want my money back. I thought playing with others would be fun. But since I've had the game I've never been able to play a full game once. Everyone quits about 3 minutes in and the game ends immediately. Can I get refunded here? I don't want to pay money for a game I can't play. Full Review

    Victoria Calvete Published date: May 2, 2017

    I love this game. It is a big hit with the family, both the cards and the virtual version. We wish that the dirty version also comes up, and also that the possibility for bigger decks to be added. Also adding the note card may be the next thing to do :) overall, amazing. Everyone should give it a go Full Review

    Its a good game, but not enough players. Sometimes I wait for 2-3 min waiting for the game to start. If the host disconnected you're screwed and have to join another game. It gets annoying after a while. Full Review

    The game is great, let's get that straight! BUT, for 2 dollars there's so little content. I payed an extra 2 dollars for a card pack, and I'm not super happy that I did.... Good game, but needs more content per dollar... Full Review

    Long story short. Paid for the app and expansions. Unable to install it on my tablet. Tells me it's not available for this device. Emailed their tech support. They offered me a full refund but they couldn't find a record of the transaction even after i emailed them copies of all the recipes with the transaction info. Basically the only way i can play this game on my tablet is to download and install a pirated version of the app. Go figure. Full Review

    Danny Garcia Published date: September 2, 2017

    It's annoying to not be able to have a set friend list to send codes out to. Having to use other means to get the invite out tends to be cumbersome. Also no option to remove the timer is unfortunate since a lot of us can't just play a whole game at once. The same goes for not being able to minimize the game and come back to it later. Unable to just set a game up and leave the app after notifying friends and come back into it. It's just annoying that it demands so much attention when in real life the game is very casual.

    If you liked the card game, you'll like this too. Main complaints are that it lacks some of the original cards (Nope and Cat Cards (They function like favours here)), however it adds some fun new ones. Also the in-game voices are a bit annoying, but other than that it's a fantastic time killer. Full Review

    Loved the card game and so bought this when I saw it on offer for 10p! Slight differences to the physical game but still very addictive! I was offered the chance to sample the expansion packs and it seems there is not much extra to these packs, definitely would not pay £1.69, £1.99 for them, will stick to the simple game, fun enough!

    You have to buy this game and you can't try new things FROM A PAID GAME unless you pay AGAIN. It's frustrating that if you buy everything in this game it'll add up to $10+..paid games usually provide you with the full experience you paid for while this game continues to suck money out of you. It is fun to play every now and then, but the amount of money you're going to be dropping on it to experience everything will be disappointing. Do not buy this unless you want to pay extra every month. Full Review

    The game is great. I loved the card game too. People that have problems with the game just have bad phones. The card game is like $20+, so stop complaining for your money back. I mean it's a $2 game. Really. If you don't want to deal with your own phone's problems, buy the card game. Sheesh. Full Review
