30 goat loving, ear donning, enchilada making, record breaking Achievements!! We’ve never seen anything like you guys, and neither has the planet.

You have proven beyond any doubt that you are unstoppable. There’s nothing we can put in front of you that you can’t do. There is nothing too great, nothing too hard, nothing too outrageous that you incredible group of incredible people can’t accomplish as a community.

and so...

See how the surprise is all blurred out? That’s because the first time we ever saw it, we couldn’t stop laughing and cheering, and we want you to have the exact same experience. So we're asking you to let us keep the secret until it shows up on your front door. 

We know how hard you've worked, and this is the best way we can reward you for it.

Here’s what we can tell you:

  • The surprise will ship out to every backer at every reward level.
  • A Kickstarter Exclusive - You’ll be getting something that we will never build again. This is a thank you to our amazing community that helped us make this project real.
  • It will make you happy every time you experience it.


We still have a few more days of this campaign, and to prove our love we’ve decided to end this with something entirely new.

This has been called the largest party Kickstarter has ever thrown, and for the remaining days of our campaign we’re going to make that a reality.

Welcome to your #BackerParty

Schedule of events:

Day 1 (Tuesday, Feb 17th)

  • Get tipsy with the Exploding Kittens Twitter drinking game
  • The Oatmeal illustrates your Kickstarter Comments

Day 2 (Wednesday, Feb 18th)

  • Hosted pizza parties at your local animal shelter

Day 3 (Thursday, Feb 19th)

  • Reddit AMA: Party live with the Exploding Kittens Team in a final countdown to the end of the campaign

We’ll have details on each event each morning, so stay tuned and get ready to celebrate the amazing group you’ve formed with the world’s first #backerparty!
