Exploding Kittens is crossing over with Despicable Me’s Minions in a new version of the party card game called exactly what you’d expect.
Exploding Minions borrows Kittens’ Russian Roulette-inspired gameplay, which sees players draw cards and avoid any volatile felines that come their way, hoping to be the last person left in. Players take it in turns to draw a card from a central deck, using the cards in their hand to peek at the deck, force other players to draw, defuse exploding kitten cards and otherwise survive as long as they can.
Exploding Minions costs £15/$20, and is available to buy via Exploding Kittens’ online store for those in the UK, as well as in Target stores in the US. The game is set to arrive in fellow US chain Walmart later in the summer.
