This expansion includes 20 cards and instructions that refresh the core game, adding a new level of strategy and hilarity.
Next to the new cards, Barking Kittens includes a wearable headpiece that allows you to hold a secret hand of cards on your head that no one can see until you decide to release them into the draw pile. And it includes a pair of Barking Kittens cards that allow players to combine their hands to one's advantage and the other's disadvantage. Of course, each card features illustrations by Matthew Inman of The Oatmeal.
This is not a standalone game: it requires a copy of Exploding Kittens to play.
