The Kitty-Powered Version Of The Russian Roulette
The game is based on the model of the world-famous Russian roulette. The one who draws out the explode card will die figuratively and is eliminated from the game. This is akin to the different forms of Russian roulette bouts that are played around the world. The game doesn’t entirely depend on luck unless you keep on getting the exploding card every friggin time. The other cards you draw are to be used wisely to beat your opponents and keep yourself safe and ahead of them in the game.
Hence, like in most other gambling and card games, it is not about what kind of a day you’re having but also depends heavily on how skilled you are in making do with whatever cards you are stuck with.
So, if you picked an exploding kitten, you can just play this card instead of choosing to die. You can place your defuse card in the discard pile.
