That does not work out so well. We have found that anything beyond 4 or 5 people is nearly impossible to play. If we need a 5th person we just add one EK to the regular deck. Otherwise there are just too many cards in use. Anything over 5 players is just a PITA to track.

I agree.
The gameplay with more than 5 people... is a pain. I initially did the two decks together and game play. Really fun game tho!

The mechanics really won't support more than 5. Most games have an optimal player range, just how it is.

I've found it's a great filler game for groups. With the way it works, you know they *must* end my the end of the deck so you're not going to get caught in the feed-back loops can happen in some games where they just never want to die. And with 4 players you're looking at 15-20 minutes. So if you have a large group playing a couple bigger, more time heavy games, and one wraps up first - Kittens is a good way to fill the time until the other game(s) wrap up and folks can re-allot for the next batch of bigger games

Played it for the first time last week at a Christmas party - had the NSFW version. I have to say, the card illustrations themselves cracked me up on more than one occasion. It was fun, we played that, Pieface, and of course CAH. I agree, it was a fun and fast paced game for the 5 of us playing, but I think with more than that we'd have lost some momentum/interest.

Had a lot of fun with this one playing with my nieces and nephews on Christmas. The basic set of course. Even the 4 year old wanted to play (with the 12 year old's help of course).

The good part of the game is that the 4 year old, basically playing a random strategy, could win over someone trying to be a skilled player. He likes drawing cards and would accumulate a rather hefty hand so by the time he wanted to play something from the hand (which the 12 year old would then make sure was a smart and legal choice) you wouldn't have enough cards in your hand to counteract it, and next thing you know he's stolen all of your Defuse and Shuffle cards, and has stuck the Exploding Kitten on top of the deck.

eah, we have multiple strats for either building a massive set of cards or going out early and trying to steal diffuses

We play this at work regularly. When we have 6 players, we just add in a defuse and an exploding kitten from a spare deck, and leave the rest the same. It works out pretty well.

That is pretty much what we do, using two decks just doesn't work well.

I played it and had a lot of fun, the wife didn't care for it. I might look into trading my NSFW version for the standard one so I can try it with the kids. I bet they would like it.
