Now we know Dobble doesn’t need tinkering with, it is just about the best card game on the market but, what if you could take the core gameplay and add some Exploding Kitten chaos to it? Yes, right, you’d want to try and thats just what the EK team did and, the result, Anarchy Pancakes. There is a full interview from the CEO HERE well worth a read about its development, teaming up with Asmodee’s Zygomatic studio EK have dabbled with the Dobble artwork to align with its (Exploding Kittens) signature cartoon style and humour, optimised the rules for a predominantly US audience and added a variety of new card types.
In the game, each player starts with seven pancake cards featuring various misfit toppings. On the count of three, players attempt to match their pancake cards’ toppings to other players’ toppings, forcing them to take the cards and form a ‘pancake stack’. The first player to get rid of all of their cards and shout “Anarchy pancakes!” wins that round and collects a ‘slab ‘o butter’. The first player to receive two slabs ‘o butter wins.
