4 Bizarre But Entertaining Card Games You Can Play

Card games are plenty and we often know about some of them, like UNO, poker, blackjack, bridge and so on and so forth. However, since playing cards have been around for centuries, we have a lot of card games that we have probably never heard of. This is true for most things that were around for centuries and have evolved with the people.

Bizarre card games are plentiful so let us look at some of them that are relatively unknown but still fun and interesting to play.

Exploding Kittens

The name will horrify most animal lovers and rightfully so. The deck is colored red and the suggestions are obvious. The rules are relatively simple. You get a card that is a cat and also a bomb. You have to diffuse your card, or rather, cat-bomb, if you want to live. 

However, that is only one part of the game’s objective. The other part of the objective is for you to survive while all other players blow up. This is definitely a game for hardcore card players.

Grave Robbers From Outer Space

This is another interesting game that takes popular fiction from movies, and gives you a card game. The object of the game is to attack the other players’ characters if you have monster cards, and eventually kill off their characters to be the last person/monster standing. It is a fun game to play and there are many others from the series, all dealing with various topics from popular culture.

Goat Lords

Animal-themed card games seem to be more popular than other types of card games. Goat Lords is a great card game that you want to play with a couple of friends who are keen on strategy games. The rules are complicated, but in the end, you want to have the largest herd.

You can match goat cards to have a stronger herd and eventually, duel other people’s herds to win their goat cards. The game is fun and the cards look amazing.

Comic book geniuses Cyanide and Happiness have made their own card game, which is actually a comic book building game. Randomized and entertaining, the goal of the game is to build a comic from a couple of cards that you get. 

The game has many cards, actually 360 of them, so the odds that you can get either a good or bad comic are both in your favor. Either way, it is a fun game to play with friends. 

These are some of the weirdest card games that you can play. Try them and be prepared to find even weirder ones if you look hard enough.
