The overnight Internet phenomenon Exploding Kittens card game is coming to Microsoft’s Zo bot. Exploding Kittens was originally started on Kickstarter and it raised a record $8.7 million in pledges. After its huge success, mobile version of this game was released for iOS and Android devices. Now, Microsoft is bringing the first single-player version of Exploding Kittens to Zo bot.

According to Elan Lee, one of the designers of this game, “Exploding Kittens has always wanted to create a single-player version of the game but didn’t want it to be a solitary experience. Teaching Zo to play the game while interacting with players suddenly solved the problem gloriously. Now you can play Exploding Kittens by yourself without being alone.”

You can start playing it through Facebook Messenger (, kik ( and GroupMe (contact: Zo). After adding Zo, type “play EK”. Zo will reply with a link to start the game.

Microsoft today highlighted that their social chatbots like XiaoIce in China, Rinna in Japan and Zo now have more than 100 million users around the world.
