Moar Rewards right meow!! Can't wait to get this and play :D
PLEASE SAY THAT IT'S POSSIBLE TO DOUBLE A PLEDGE FOR TWO SETS!!!
David Laperle 2015-01-20T15:04:34-05:00
I wish i could have a backer t-shirt for this ... please ... please.
Zack Ziegler 2015-01-20T15:05:18-05:00
@Thomas -- it says you can in the backer description -- its $35 per extra set
Nicolas Theriault-Langelier 2015-01-20T15:05:38-05:00
The Oatmeal + Game + Kickstarter... I think that the internet is about to explode.
David Gamboa 2015-01-20T15:05:48-05:00
The Oatmeal + Cats! What could possibly go wrong!!?
@Zack Ziegler: THANKS!! I somehow missed it :-S
I see for more than 4 players you need the 2nd main deck, will I also need a second NSFW deck? Or is that more of a personal preference?
Jeff St. Pierre 2015-01-20T15:08:38-05:00
Would LOVE to hear about a retailer program
Looks like you guys will cross the million-dollar mark today if pace continues. We're watching history folks.
Can't wait to see stretch goals!
Nicolas Theriault-Langelier 2015-01-20T15:09:39-05:00
@tgoVIPER If the base deck is sufficient to play at 4 players, I would think that 2xBase Deck should be enough for 8 players. From that point I think you can add 0,1 or 2 NSFW deck.
Seth Gremmert 2015-01-20T15:12:06-05:00
Very excited and patiently waiting to hear about stretch goals
Nicolas Theriault-Langelier 2015-01-20T15:14:15-05:00
Heck, you could even play with one base deck and 2 NSFW deck.
I think that the base logic is to have enough exploding kittens to kill all players except 1 (taking into account all of the defuse cards). In that regard you could use 2 complete sets (Base + NSFW) to play with two players but I think that would be "overkill"...
Got this as a companion game to CAH. Can't wait for delivery! May need to get a second deck though.
Sarah Watson 2015-01-20T15:14:21-05:00
Please tell me the mantis shrimp makes an appearance in this game? Kittens love shrimp!
The number of backers has exceeded their goal and is only going to go up with the ridiculously exploding amount still being pledged... 4000% and rising...
Tim Marks 2015-01-20T15:19:02-05:00
Collectors Deck ordered. Being from the UK I trust that this will be a right hand drive conversion with English English? Now, about those stretch goals... Tee shirts are a must. Also I reckon my cats would rather like Exploding Kitty catnip filled toys too...
Ivana Pen 2015-01-20T15:19:11-05:00
Excited about this game, but a little sad it only accommodates 2-4 people on one deck. Hopefully, since it's blown up, the deck will expand.. a little à-la-Evil-Baby-Orphanage? :) Either way, just shut up and take my money.
Scott Beeson 2015-01-20T15:22:01-05:00
Will I be asked for a shipping address later? My billing address is different and it never asked for a shipping address.
What is the estimated release/shipping date for this?
Amber Freeman 2015-01-20T15:26:20-05:00
I wanted to pledge 100 but there was no more!
Christy Marsden 2015-01-20T15:31:23-05:00
I'm so excited about this! I also really appreciate the lack of complicated stretch goals - I just want the game! Make the game, make it awesome. Please put lots of fun, diverse things in there and send it out so I can play it ASAP. Also, the appearance of an Alot monster would be pretty fantastic (I know, I know, that's not an Oatmeal thing). Oh, and of course, The Blerch should make a special appearance. And Jitters.
Max Hoffman 2015-01-20T15:32:42-05:00
Looks great! Good luck with production, it's gonna be epic!
Kari Toyama 2015-01-20T15:34:15-05:00
Take my money.
Andy Collier 2015-01-20T15:37:16-05:00
First! Oh. Hey. Didn't see you guys over there. Well....this is awkward.
Kevin S 2015-01-20T15:38:36-05:00
I have a feeling that this project will break Kickstarter.
Jeff Schmidt 2015-01-20T15:40:49-05:00
What's it like to watch the pledge amount increment in real time like that? Amazing.
Eivind Olsen 2015-01-20T15:41:55-05:00
With this many people signed up in this short amount of time, I hope the game delivers and is fun to play :)
Mark Brenner 2015-01-20T15:42:33-05:00
Holy crap watching this thing go up lol....
also it took like 20 min for my email saying I backed it to come so I think kickstarter is struggling lol
Arnoud Langen 2015-01-20T15:43:17-05:00
Congratulations, you made me sign up for Kickstarter. I had resisted it's evil lure for so long.
Lisa Kruse 2015-01-20T15:45:29-05:00
It's mesmerizing watching the numbers go up..and up...and up
Dane Groh 2015-01-20T15:46:24-05:00
Now that we all know this game will be completely funded and developed (and then some), how long do you estimate it will take for the decks to be produced and distributed? Or is it too soon to tell?
Frank Koehl 2015-01-20T15:57:34-05:00
As a backer, I DEMAND a card with Splinter Cell cat, of "Cat vs Internet" comic fame.
Adam Lewis - Erudite Esoterist 2015-01-20T16:07:05-05:00
Not so, Bogdan - the Most Funded is by pure cash amount. To get onto that, the project would need about $2.8 million. This rate of funding isn't going to last forever, so it may not reach that. Awesome if it did though!
Jonathon Peters 2015-01-20T16:07:19-05:00
Is this a game release or an IPO?
Adeline Hullot 2015-01-20T16:09:25-05:00
If you ever feel like translating it in french I'd be delighted to help :)
Mike Greencorn 2015-01-20T16:10:51-05:00
Exploding Kickstarter: The Game
This is amazing how much this has grown today! I'm in it for the Oatmeal.
Jessica Turner 2015-01-20T16:15:26-05:00
Praying for a Jibbers sighting!
Gordon Moar 2015-01-20T16:18:23-05:00
I'm in, but $15 non-US shipping for a card game?! C'mon...seriously?
Same as Gordan Moar. Funded, but it always pains me to pay so much for shipping to Europe :(
Lily Mulvey 2015-01-20T16:23:25-05:00
I hope the Bobcats have something to say about this.
Philip Bowman 2015-01-20T16:23:35-05:00
Machine of Death was $10 I think, and then I got hit with import taxes too :(
David Blakeman 2015-01-20T16:27:30-05:00
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY
Nat Ashcroft 2015-01-20T16:28:08-05:00
Hey I think might want to open up some more rewards tiers. I have few friends where weren't on in the first 10 minutes to get some of the limited stuff. Yeah I was lucky to get a signed pack but still this looks awesome I hope you are all ready for this huge production run.
edward b 2015-01-20T16:29:36-05:00
Please have a card with a Fuity Blergs reference!
Bob "Powers of Tesla" Lindley 2015-01-20T16:32:00-05:00
Holy crap dudes. 600K and STILL climbing at a ridiculous rate. Thank goodness I saw this while collector packs were available. BTW I am loving the idea of Jibbers Crabst, and the Mantis Shrimp possibly making guest appearances. Maybe in future expansion packs? Well done gentlemen, very well done.
Aaron Wakamatsu 2015-01-20T16:32:48-05:00
This is freakin' awesome. Hoping for some kickass stretch goals to be posted.
Sam Covell 2015-01-20T16:35:19-05:00
Feel the love, man. Feel the love.
Jared Caldwell 2015-01-20T16:37:04-05:00
Drinking game rules: if you get 'sploded, you have to take a shot.
Derek Toro 2015-01-20T16:37:18-05:00
My guess is that this hasn't even taken off yet. Wait until is starts being reported and blogged about more widely... This is just the beginning!
This is gonna be legendary
I'm here because this is gonna be legendary. Didn't even read the front page. Bring it on.
stretch goal: grumpy cat =D
Monica Llanes 2015-01-20T16:47:43-05:00
Where can I change shipping address? :)
Chris Scalzo 2015-01-20T16:48:22-05:00
Can we get some more information about the game... what is the card thinkness, and are they linen finished?
Chad Amidon 2015-01-20T16:48:28-05:00
Can I get some blank cards with the game backing?? i wanna do the heroic version where the winner (survivor) becomes a hero and adds their own card to the deck.
Chris Scalzo 2015-01-20T16:48:44-05:00
@Monica they will ask for a shipping address at the end of it all
Chris Scalzo 2015-01-20T16:50:50-05:00
Also what is the count for the NSFW cards, 56 too? That is if you do not expand with some SGs?
Rachel Sauerbier 2015-01-20T16:52:14-05:00
As soon as I heard it was co-created and designed by the Oatmeal, I knew it was going to be epic. Here's to hoping there will be a Blerch card!
Benjamin Chernik 2015-01-20T16:54:49-05:00
can't wait to see the stretch goals...my guess is we've probably blown through at least a few of their projected goals...i wonder if they'll just give them to us or if they'll push back the goals to encourage more pledges
Josh Dobbins 2015-01-20T16:55:34-05:00
Bet the stretch goals will be pretty epic
Lisa Karimi-Naser 2015-01-20T16:59:15-05:00
Shared all over social media and at my work. This looks too awesome to be true!
Ates Goral 2015-01-20T17:06:40-05:00
If you reach 1M, explode some real kittens!!
This game looks so amazing :o
Glad to be part of it !
Todd Beedy 2015-01-20T17:09:04-05:00
want stretch goals... need stretch goals!
Matt, Elan, Shane... go go go!
James Cassidy 2015-01-20T17:09:13-05:00
Chris S Luzynski 2015-01-20T17:09:54-05:00
I've never seen a Kickstarter, or anything go 70x over the original goal, much less do it in under 5 hours...
Joseph Espinosa 2015-01-20T17:13:29-05:00
I can't wait for the "Telsa vs. Edison" card game where half the proceeds to go the Tesla Museum. Until then, bring on the kitty destruction =)
this is seriously the most intensely goal thumping kickstarter i've ever seen!
Thomas Vasquez 2015-01-20T17:19:37-05:00
Man that sucks. I wanted the signed cards but they were all out :(
Karen Stover 2015-01-20T17:22:01-05:00
If we want to play with 8 people, do we need two nsfw decks, or can one span between both games for use?
Adam Lewis - Erudite Esoterist 2015-01-20T17:22:15-05:00
Thomas I'm afraid you had no chance, they were all gone inside 20 minutes.
Jason Loveman 2015-01-20T17:24:21-05:00
Matthew Inman doesn't draw himself the way he really looks -- he's a skinny marathon runner.
Rod "BaKhan" Mitchell 2015-01-20T17:26:01-05:00
As soon as I saw it, I was like back it meow!
Noah Best 2015-01-20T17:26:05-05:00
Can't wait to play this. Long live The Oatmeal!!
crazy i think we blow up 1 mio less then 12 hours ...
Dave Sokolowski 2015-01-20T17:27:34-05:00
The most insane KS project I've ever been apart of. Kick ass guys!
Devin Stevens 2015-01-20T17:28:51-05:00
I've just been watching this page and the pledge goes up at least $1k. Every 5 seconds. LONG LIVE THE OATMEAL!
Perry Grosshans 2015-01-20T17:29:31-05:00
Man, there is seriously NO reason for stretch goals. I'm serious here. This game looks pretty fun and simple right now. To start throwing in stretch goals at every, say $20k or so, which would normally be the NORM, is TOTALLY NOT necessary here! I would rather just see this game be made and shipped on time, than have a bunch of stretch goals that would bloat this out. That being said, a few stretch goals (or "reward" goals now, lol) for backers would still be cool.
Keltie Ryan 2015-01-20T17:32:48-05:00
Can't wait to play this!
Rod "BaKhan" Mitchell 2015-01-20T17:35:12-05:00
$70000 in the last 30 mins!
THANK YOU for having a reasonable shipping rate to Canada! There are a lot of Kickstarters that I haven't backed because the shipping was so outrageous. As in "the same price as the thing I wanted to back" outrageous. I don't mind paying a bit extra (depending on the thing - I realize it costs more to ship some things than others) but that is unreasonable in my books. Very much looking forward to playing the game with my 10 year old daughter (minus the NSFW cards, of course).
Bogdan Tănăsoiu 2015-01-20T17:37:22-05:00
@Adam Lewis, yes, my bad, I was referring to funding rate (percentage), not overall funds raised. Also LOL, between now and what I previously wrote, the project got funded around 20 more times. NICE.
BruceP - The Chameleon 2015-01-20T17:37:40-05:00
I agree. It's not like the creators need to provide more incentive for people to pledge. They should just use the money to make the best quality game they can, and to lower shipping costs for international people. (and throw in some nice stuff for the friendly backers) :)
Aaron Markworth 2015-01-20T17:40:57-05:00
I wonder if you want to play with more than 4 people, is it possible to do by adding 2 decks together or will that throw off the gameplay?
Is there a way to leave a comment in the purchase area... I pledged 70$ because I want more decks
Mathias Uslar 2015-01-20T17:42:17-05:00
Arrrrrr! NEED THIS NOW!
Matt Fox 2015-01-20T17:43:30-05:00
@Aaron, they specifically mention this as a method to play with more than 4 players.
BruceP - The Chameleon 2015-01-20T17:44:29-05:00
No, you can only comment here and with an update. But you can send a message to the creators if you want using the 'Contact me' link above. What most kickstarters do for people that want more than 1 of a thing is either have a pledge tier with more than one, or people increase their pledge amount total to account for more than one. But if you want to be sure, ask the creator. :)
Rod "BaKhan" Mitchell 2015-01-20T17:44:33-05:00
@amy, there will be a pledge manager afterwords where you can specify that.
Jesse Embry 2015-01-20T17:47:26-05:00
I love Mathews art and humor, I hope a stretch goal could be increasing the size of the initial starter packs. Q: Will the cards come in a deck box and if so, will there be slack room for future expansions ? I'd hate to carry this wonderful game to parties in like 4 boxes.
Rod "BaKhan" Mitchell 2015-01-20T17:49:13-05:00
@Jesse, on the story page it shows a nice box for the cards, seems like there would be extra room in it...
