Introduction to Spot It

Spot it is a fast paced card game that is about trying to match up symbols between the card in your hand and the one in the deck before the other player! It a fun fast paced card game that is great for all ages and even languages. Because it is symbol based it relies only on your ability to match images rather than any reading so it’s a great game to take travelling.

How to Play Spot It

In spot it there are only ever 1 matching symbol between two cards. That means that plays need to be quick at looking over all the symbols and matching them up in order to win. There are a few variations to play spot in, but in essence the game is about acute observation and quick reflexes which makes it a fun fast game to play.

Notes on Spot it

Spot it is a game that I play a lot with my niece and nephew when I am over to visit. Being picture based and reliant on speed puts us all on a relatively even playing field which is great. I also love playing this game with my friends when we are having smaller game nights since its fast to play and fun to win. Definitely recommend for any parent to play with their kids and makes a great birthday or Christmas gift.

Introduction to Exploding Kittens

Exploding kittens was first funded through kickstarter in 2015 and since then has become one of the most popular card games for kids and adults. It’s fast paced and explosive game play keeps players on their toes as they try to gain defuse cards and sabotage fellow players in order to be the last person standing. Exploding kittens is truly on of the funniest and craziest card games I have had the pleasure to play and I highly recommend it to casual and non-casual players.

How to Play Exploding Kittens

The aim of exploding kittens is to be the last person alive in a round. Each player starts with a defuse card in had with another few in the deck. Each round a player can play any number of action cards from his or her hand or play collections of cats in order to perform special abilities. At the end of their turn they pick up a card from the deck except for when the play an action card that skips this step. If they draw an exploding kitten, they must play a defuse card. If they don’t have a defuse card they are out of the round. If they don’t draw an exploding kitten, the turn moves to the next player.

The best way to win is to try and steal defuses from other players and then, while they are defenseless, make them draw an exploding kitten. The last person left in the game is declared the winner and you can reshuffle and play again for more kitten madness!

Notes on Exploding Kittens

Exploding kittens is one of my favorite card games and I own both the original and NSFW edition. I play either version with friends or family and I have found it to be an easy go-to gift if I need to get one for someone in a hurry. The fun game play and crazy art style has won over so many people I know and I’m sure it will win you over to.
