Exploding Kittens is a card game like Russian Roulette. You'll have a deck of cards containing some Exploding Kittens. You play the game by putting the deck face down and taking turns drawing cards off the top.

The deck contains different cards that let you avoid exploding by checking at cards before you draw (see the future) , forcing your opponent to draw multiple cards (attack), or shuffling the deck, etc..

The game goes on and becomes more intense because fewer cards left means a greater chance of drawing the Exploding Kitten. When you explode, you lose. When you don't explode, you win and all of the other cards.

Three of a kind

Exactly the same as Two of a Kind, but you get to name the card you want from the other player. If they have it, you get to take it. If not, you get nothing. …
