Exploding Kittens is, without a doubt, one of the most popular party games out there, and fans of the franchise will be delighted to hear that the developers have created a brand-new title that will see players try to complete tasks while their opponents challenge them in hilarious ways.
Without Fail Challenges Players With Hilarious Tasks
Party games have often required players to perform ridiculous feats to complete different objectives, and the upcoming Without Fail will take this to the extreme level. The game, which is being released by the creators of Exploding Kittens, will challenge participants with completing some of over 150 different challenges that even involve props such as blindfolds, cups and balls, dice, pens, and more.
However, their tasks won’t be made simple as other players will bet on how difficult the challenge can be made without fail. The player that makes the task the hardest will become the challenger’s teammate and both of them will score points if the latter succeeds in completing the task. However, if the bar is set too high and the challenge is too difficult to complete, then both will lose points, while all other players will gain points. Therefore, a large part of the successful strategy is to be able to judge if a challenger can complete a certain task or not.
Elan Lee, co-creator and CEO of Exploding Kittens, explained that the team’s goal has always been not only to create entertaining games but to make the players themselves more entertaining.
“Without Fail’s brand new challenge mechanics take that concept to a new level. Every challenge starts out simple, but quickly gets harder and sometimes impossible as your friends try to outbid each other on what they think you’re capable of,” they explained.
Senior game designer at Exploding Kittens Carol Mertz added that since the team has seen more and more games getting noticed on social media, they wanted to make a game that was as fun to watch as it is to play.:

The new game is best suited for large groups of 10 players and more, but it can technically be played by just two people as well. It’s easy to get into a game that allows players to learn it quickly and with its playtime of about 20 minutes, a group can go through many rounds in one play session. With its various challenges and different ways of executing them, Without Fail provides an entirely new gameplay experience each time.
