Exploding_Kittens.pngMy copy of Exploding Kittens came in the mail the other day (August 5, 2015).  It was a very exciting day.  Had seen a few people has pictures of their copies online.  But didn’t look at them very closely because I wanted to be surprised.  A few days before that bought a bunch of plastic card sleeves to protect the cards.  Don’t want anyone messing them up.  I backed the KickStarter were you get the regular deck plus the NSFW one.  Below are some pictures.  Will be back when I get to try it out with some people.

When I first opened the box and see the invoice.  It cracked me up.  They customized it with your name and address.  You can see what it looks like below.  Then when I opened the main box it meows at you.  Which all so made me laugh.  Took a look at all the cards from both decks.  Which are all so very funny and well done.  Did try to rounds of the game.  Messed up on the first one.  Didn’t set the deck up right and we were still learning the rules.  If you are looking for the rules the have a nice video > here as well as how to set up the deck.  It was fun to play.  Looking forward to trying it out with others.

Exploding_Kittens.pngOne step closer get getting my copy of Exploding Kittens card game.  The Kickstarter ended back in February (2015).  They have been very regular with updates one how every things was going.  Back on May 28, 2015 received a backers survey email.  It was just to confirm you name and mailing address.  All so if you wanted to buy more copies of the game.  You could do that as well.  Sure receive an other email when my copy is shipped out.  I am guess it might be here some time in July.  When I do get it will be posting pictures for sure.

Exploding_Kittens.pngThe Kickstarter for Exploding Kittens as ended (February 19, 2015).  Making the most back project ever on Kickstarter.  The last time I talked about his they raised four and a half million dollars, with 112,000 backers.  Well its much higher than that now.  It is over eight and half million with over 219,382 backers.  Which is pretty amazing.  I am one of those backers.  Not really into card/board games and am a big fan of The Oatmeal.  So can see myself playing this.  Some time this summer “should” be getting mine in the mail.  Pretty sure the guys behind the project will keep everyone up to date.  Will be back with more info when here is more.

Exploding_Kittens.pngBack again talking about Exploding Kittens.  If you haven’t heard about this you need to check it out now.  It is a card game being made by the guy behind The Oatmeal.com and two others.  It is now the most backed campaign in Kickstarter’s history.  As of (January 28, 2015) they have over 112,000 backers.  Which has raised about four and a half million dollars.  Taking about this again because I am one of these backers.  They said if they reached 100,000 backers they would turn the NSFW expansion into to a full stand-alone game.  Which can be mixed into the regular game.  Not sure when I well get my copy.  The site says “Estimated delivery: Jul 2015”.  Will get posting updates when I get more news.  There is still time to back this, go > here.  It ends February 19, 2015.

Exploding_KittensIf you haven’t heard but Exploding Kittens have taken over the internet.  This is a new card game that is looking for funding on KickStarter.  The game is being made by guy behind The Oatmeal.com and two other guys.  First seen this on the day it went up on KickStarter January 20, 2015.   The goal was for $10,000.  Which they got in a matter a minutes.  The next day took a look at it again it reached over two million dollars.  I am a big fan of The Oatmeal and his brand of humour.  Own two of his books.  Not really into card games.  However this one I can see myself playing.  Think I will give some money to this project.  The game looks like it will be a blast to play.  You can check it out >here or yourself.  There is all so a video explaining things > here or below.

[Update] January 24, 2015.  The KickStarter pledges is over three and a half million.

Why Grizzly Bears Should Wear Underpants Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 18, 2013 by getbent57

WhyGrizzlyBearsShouldWearUnderpants.jpgJust like the other The Oatmeal.com books, Why Grizzly Bears Should Wear Underpants are very well made.  But most importantly funny.  I just didn’t find it has funny as the other book of his I have, How to Tell if Your Cat is Plotting to Kill you.   Its starts off very funny.  Had me laughing out loud the whole time.   Then about half way though not so much.   While it is very good.  It just left like it was more about what makes him mad but the funny side didn’t come out.  Still glad I did buy it.   Looks good on the bookshelf.  Easy for way one to pick up and have a laugh.

Another strong book from The Oatmeal.  Just not as funny all they way though.   If you are a fan of this work you need to pick it up.  If you are new to his comedy check out his other work first.
