Forget quiet time: Now you can win for being the loudest member of your family!

Exploding Kittens is releasing its first word-shouting party game, called Really Loud Librarians. Ideal for players ages 8 and up, this board game is easy to play and really, really loud. 

First, each team will receive a category and a figure that will start off on the race track on a specific letter. The team must then shout out a word that begins with the letter their figure is on and corresponds with the category, like action movies that begin with the letter D. Once the team has successfully shouted the word before their opponents, the team can move to the next letter on the track and provide another answer for the same category card.

The winning team for each round is determined by who yelled the answer the fastest, so don’t be afraid to yell loud and proud! Once the winning team for the round is determined, that team can move along the track. The team that makes it to the end of the track wins! It’s like Super Mario Kart meets Scattergories meets charades!
