What is the ‘Exploding Kittens’ Netflix Series about?

Exploding Kittens

The animated series will follow “the eternal conflict between Heaven and Hell” as it intensifies after God and the Devil are carried to Earth and trapped in the bodies of chubby domestic cats.

Exploding Kittens – The Game will be available to Netflix users without the need to pay any additional fees or make in-app purchases when it launches straight on the mobile edition of the platform. Instead, the game will be a digital version of the conventional card game.

In this game, players pick cards from a deck with different abilities. However, they need to be alert not to choose the “exploding kitten” card, which will result in losing the game.

This updated edition of the game will also include two unique cards with brand-new powers, with plans to introduce additional exclusive cards to tie in with the series in the future.
