How to Play Exploding Kittens

Exploding Kittens rules are simple, players draw cards until someone draws an Exploding Kitten, at which point they explode, they are dead, and they are out of the game – unless that player has a Defuse card, which can defuse the Kitten using things like laser pointers, belly rubs, and catnip sandwiches. All of the other cards in the deck are used to move, mitigate, or avoid the Exploding Kittens.

To keep the game from being complete random chance though, there are a whole range of other cards which can be used to skip turns, defuse kittens, peek at the top of the deck, and other such options. Between all of these assorted action cards, players will usually have an option to avoid kitty destruction early on in the game, but as time rolls on options will become depleted and the pace of the game takes on a more frantic tone!

And that’s all there is to it! Play cards, draw cards, infuriate your opponents, and pray to the higher powers you don’t find yourself on the wrong end of an Exploding Kitten!

The starter pack is for 2 to 5 players.

Star Wars drones  have been released in a limited edition range from Hamleys . There are three Star Wars drones to choose from including Darth Vader’s Tie Fighter, X Wing or an Endor Speeder Bike.

Star Wars Speeder Bike Drone

I can imagine several of these speeder bikes together having a race at full speed along the grass.

Star Wars T-65 X-Wing Drone

The X-Wing drone is an excellent rendition of the X Wing from Star Wars with the 4 rotors on the bottom of the wings and two on arms at the front of the drone to balance the flying.

Star Wars Darth Vader Drone

This is the Star Wars X1 Tie Advanced Fighter as used by Darth Vader in Star Wars. This is a nice model as the four rotor blades are strategically placed underneath each corners of the tie fighter so they don’t look out of place and seem hidden. So this looks like a real tie fighter flying along.

Imagine putting the X wing and the Tie Fighter head to head in a laser battle.

Pie Face Showdown Game

Pie Face Showdown appears hot on the heels of the highly successful Pie Face board game.

Pie Face Showdown is different to the standard Pie Face game as this time it’s a head to head race. Just press the button as fast as you can and move the pie arm toward your opponent, If you are too slow you will get a pie in the face and get creamed!

The great thing about Pie Face Showdown is that two people can play it at once – twice the fun!

How to Play Pie Face Showdown

First, players load the arm with whipped cream (not included) or the included sponge.

Then each player places their chin on one of the chin rests

At the count of 3, you need to rapidly hit the button nearest to them, this will activate the hand on the throwing arm.

The suspense builds as players try to get the arm to move toward their opponent, and when it gets too close to the pie thrower, it’ll spring up, and that player will get creamed! The player who doesn’t get “pie-faced” wins.

Ages 5 and up For 2 players. Adult assembly and supervision required. Choking Hazard – Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.

What’s included with Pie Face Showdown?

  • 1 pie thrower
  • 1 throwing arm
  • 2 chin rests
  • 2 splash-card masks
  • 1 sponge
  • instructions
