(PCM) You want to know the best part? Not only did the Exploding Kittens card game raise 2 million dollars via Kickstarter, but they did it in only one day! It is unbelievable and the donations are still continuing.
The idea for the Exploding Kittens game comes from Michael Inman, who also happens to be the creator of the popular comic site, The Oatmeal. When Inman launched the Kickstarter campaign for Exploding Kittens, he never dreamed it would catch on in such as way. The campaign reached it’s initial goal for $10,000 in just a few minutes of being live.
Currently, Exploding Kittens has racked up over $2 million in donations and the numbers continue to climb. In fact the Kickstarter campaign does not even end until midnight on February 19, so we can only begin to imagine what the donation amount will look like by that point.
According to Mashable.com, “In the vein of Russian roulette, players go around in a circle, drawing cards from a deck, until one of them picks up an exploding kitten. That player immediately “explodes” and loses..”Players can strategically use other cards they’ve picked up to negate an exploding kitten, or make it more likely for other players to pick one up. All of the cards feature Inman’s signature Oatmeal-style drawings, and many include drawings from his past comics.”
The game sounds a little disturbing, but then again we are a society that truly enjoys a good round of “Cards Against Humanity” as well so …
