Exploding Kittens has announced the launch of its latest tabletop game, Exploding Kittens: Good vs. Evil, based on the franchise’s upcoming adult animated Netflix series, “Exploding Kittens.” This new standalone version of the company’s original card game was designed within the fictional world of the TV series. 

“Adapting Exploding Kittens into a TV show has been one of our most satisfying creative endeavors,” says Elan Lee, co-creator, chief executive officer, Exploding Kittens. “Not only will fans of the upcoming show get to see their new favorite characters on all the Good vs. Evil cards, but new and existing fans will get an exciting gameplay experience with a new game mechanic that pits players against each other in a battle of wits to compete for the most powerful card in the game.” 

Exploding Kittens: Good vs. Evil offers the same gameplay – a kitty-powered version of Russian roulette – that fans know from the flagship card game. However, the new title flips the script by bringing fans into the narrative world of the show, introducing new character cards from the upcoming series. These include a Godcat card, deemed “the most powerful card ever created” in the Exploding Kittens universe, and Devilcat, which causes a player to explode immediately without the protection of a defuse card. The game also offers four new card powers with thematic nods to the show, including Armageddon and Raising Heck cards that each feature new gameplay mechanics to provide fans with a fresh experience. 

“Creating the Exploding Kittens series with Netflix has been a dream come true,” says Matthew Inman, chief creative officer, Exploding Kittens. “Good vs. Evil allowed us to give fans a first look into what the show has in store, and we hope they have just as much fun playing the game as we had creating it.” 

Best for players ages seven and up, Exploding Kittens: Good vs. Evil is easy to learn, takes around 15 minutes to play and can be enjoyed by groups of two to five players. The game is available both in-store and online at Walmart and Target.
