One of the best party card games just got better 9to5Toys

Explosive kittens has been one of the best party card games for quite some time and is among the most popular on Amazon. A “Russian Roulette” card game for adults, teens, and kids, it’s kind of like UNO but with “goats, magic enchiladas, and kittens” that blast you. And once they do, you’re out of the game, forcing you to wait for the next turn, until now. Today, the game‘s creator announces the next addition to its line of hit card games with Zombie kittens. Head below for a more in-depth review.

One of the best party card games injected with new life

One of the best party card games around – it “sold over 20 million games worldwide and extended its IP address to Netflix in a one-of-a-kind deal” recently – is on the point of seeing its seventh iteration with Zombie kittens. Acting as both an extension of the original and a standalone experience, Zombie Kittens delivers what the creators say is one of its most requested features, resurrection:

One of the biggest problems with the original Exploding Kittens games is, well, exploding because then you’re away and have to watch your friends or family play without you…zombie kittens fixes this issue with player resurrection. Our community has been asking for it for a while, and now you can play Zombie Kittens on its own or as an expansion pack.

Adding a new Zombie Kitten card to the formula means players can jump back into the game after exploding without having to wait for the next turn. The creators say that, just like the original, Zombie Kittens supports between two and five players, takes about five minutes to learn, and eliminates the need to wait up to 15 minutes for the next game to start.

The new Zombie Kittens cards were designed by Matthew Inman of The Oatmeal fame and are suitable for the whole family (adults and kids ages 7+), unlike the NSFW adult card game the company launched with a Inflatable Slap Stick. Because the new card game functions as both a standalone experience and an expansion, when combined with the original Exploding Kittens game, the number of players also increases to nine.

New zombie kittens might not be one of the best party card games just yet, but given that it works alongside the original, it’s sure to have a shot in the family category. It should be available at Target, directly from the Exploding Kittens website, and will arrive at Walmart later this summer at $20.99.
