Exploding Kittens unveils its first licensed game, Exploding Minions

Published on: 22nd June 2021

Exploding Minions is a family-friendly spin-off of the core Russian Roulette-style game that includes new card types and fun illustrations of Minions as imagined by The Oatmeal. 

Hit tabletop game creator Exploding Kittens has announced the launch of its first licensed game, Exploding Minions, in collaboration with Illumination and Universal Brand Development. Inspired by Minions, the most successful animation franchise of all time, the themed edition of the flagship Exploding Kittens card game is easy to learn, quick to play, and fun for kids and adults to enjoy together.

“We’re excited to combine one of the biggest card games with Illumination’s global pop-culture phenomenon, the Minions, to create a new family game night essential,” said Elan Lee, co-creator and CEO of Exploding Kittens. “Exploding Minions marries these two universes to create a simple yet strategic game for all to enjoy.”

Ideal for players aged seven and up, Exploding Minions is a family-friendly spin-off of the core Russian Roulette-style game that includes new card types and fun illustrations of Minions as imagined by The Oatmeal. To play, participants take turns drawing cards while trying to evade the Exploding Minions. Players can avoid exploding by using clever strategies and favourite cards such as ‘Defuse’, ‘Nope’ and ‘See the Future’, as well as the brand new ‘Clone Card.’ The last player who hasn’t exploded wins.

For more information on how to play, readers can watch the below video narrated by Despicable Me’s Dr. Nefario (played by Russell Brand).
