Game recommendation – Exploding Kittens. It’s like Uno with exploding kittens. (but not real explosions or kittens – phew!)

With thanks to Carrie and family, from the Isle of Wight, for recommending Exploding Kittens.

Tell us a bit about the game…

It’s like Uno with exploding kittens. It is really fun – we play maybe a little slower than the norm due to one 10 year old and my sons learning difficulties but literally takes 5 min to learn and 20 mins to play. Brilliant for a short attention span!!

What does your family like most about this game?:

Nicking each other’s defuse cards and using our NOPE cards!!

Tell the Housebound With Kids community a bit about yourself…

Do you have any tips for other parents?

Take each day and be flexible – no point creating unnecessary stress on yourself
