The original edition of Exploding Kittens is family, kid, and workplace friendly! That one come is the RED box!!!
The NSFW edition is not!!! I repeat if your buying this game for a family with kids to play don’t buy the NSFW edition!! It is very explicit.
This game is a light fun party game. Even those who don’t play games will enjoy the simplicity, yet fun of Exploding Kittens.
When it is your turn you choose to play a card on the discard pile and take that action or not too. You don’t have to always play cards. Though you can play as may cards as you would like per turn. You do have to pick up card unless during special circumstances due to action cards.
You stay alive as long as you don’t draw an Exploding Kitten. If you do and have no action cards to stop it you EXPLODE and your out out of the game. THE LAST PERSON ALIVE WINS!
