Throw Throw Burrito Card Game Up On Kickstarter

The folks behind Exploding Kittens are back at it on Kickstarter. This time around, it's Throw Throw Burrito. I mean, how many games out there do you get to throw stuffed food at your opponent as part of the game mechanics? Not enough of them, if you ask me.

... though now I do want a burrito... Though, I guess, that's honestly nothing new. I always want burritos...

TGN Review: Exploding Kittens

Earlier this year, Exploding Kittens figuratively blew up Kickstarter. In 30 days, Elan Lee and his team raised almost $9 million thanks to the help of 219,382 backers. Some people here in the office were among that crowd. And a mere 6 months later, Exploding Kittens has made it to their desks. So, now that we’ve gotten a chance to play the game, was it worth all the hype?

No one is getting rich from Exploding Kittens' $8.7 million Kickstarter

Polygon posted up an article talking about the success of the Exploding Kittens Kickstarter. They point out that, while the campaign made $8.7 million, it's not like that money's all profit. That's gross, not net (for you finances-type). It's a common misconception about Kickstarter campaigns. Anyway, check out the article. It's a good read, and a good "reality check" on what people think happens after a Kickstarter campaign ends.

New Style Stretch Goals for Exploding Kittens

Exploding Kittens is closing in on $5.5 million. Though they won't cross a new stretch goal if they reach it. How can that be possible? Because they're doing something a little different for their stretch goals. Instead of unlocking new stuff when reaching a certain dollar amount, they've instead created "Achievements" that they want to pass. What are they? Well, all sorts of things. From simple such as "Facebook likes" to "posting selfies with goats."
The next Achievement total they pass will unlock a special box for the game, with a hinged lid and magnetized to stay closed. The ultimate goal is a secret.
