Exploding Kittens, a tabletop game creator, announced the launch of its new game, Mantis. Derived from the comic, “Why the Mantis Shrimp is my new favorite animal,” by the cartoonist Matthew Inman, the game is available now. 

“With the simplicity of UNO and the depth of Gin Rummy, Mantis is designed for both kids and adults,” says Inman, creator, The Oatmeal and co-creator, Exploding Kittens. “But parents, be warned, your kids will probably beat you, and they’ll want to keep beating you over and over again.” 

To celebrate the new game, the company is also formally announcing the start of its youth program outreach, which provides select summer camps and youth organizations with Exploding Kittens games, free of charge.

Organizations looking to participate can join the waitlist.
