Come out and play with the Exploding Kittens team and get a sneak peek at their upcoming expansion deck: Imploding Kittens.

Meltdown Comics Promo

Created by Elan Lee (Xbox, ARGs), Matthew Inman (The Oatmeal), and Shane Small (Xbox, Marvel), Exploding Kittens made history when it became the most-backed game in Kickstarter history and the campaign with the most number of backers, ever. It is a highly-strategic, kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette. Players draw cards until someone draws an Exploding Kitten, at which point they explode, they are dead, and they are out of the game — unless that player has a Defuse card, which can defuse the kitten using things like laser pointers, belly rubs, and catnip sandwiches. All of the other cards in the deck are used to move, mitigate, or avoid the Exploding Kittens.

The Cosplay Train Express, the world’s first all immersive pop culture rail experience, aimed at fans looking for that ultimate adventure. As part of an annual trek from Los Angeles to San Diego to celebrate the iconic Grandaddy of comic book conventions, this first-of-its-kind annual rail adventure will offer a limited number of fans the unique opportunity to engage with global celebrities, past and present, while creating the ultimate cosplay future universe along the way. William Kircher, who portrayed the iconic dwarf “Bifur” in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, will be on board to socialize with fans and lead the 4-day celebration as event emcee. Those fortunate to procure these “Golden Rail Passes” are encouraged to brush up on the ancient Dwarvish language before departing on this adventure. Golden Rail Passes are on sale NOW!

“I am excited to be the host of the Cosplay Train Express,” says William Kircher. “When I was told that this was the first annual adventure, I just knew that my participation would be something that cosplay and pop culture fans would enjoy. It should be a lot of fun.” Fan favorites from other movie and TV franchises will also join the rail experience, including Adam West, Julie Newmar, and Burt Ward, with more names from the guest list to be released in the coming weeks.

The Cosplay Train Express includes* roundtrip rail fare, one day in San Diego during Comic-Con International, all-inclusive food and beverage, and a 21+ environment throughout the train, with specialty cocktails and innovative party programming that brings stars and fans together in smaller, more extraordinary settings. The Cosplay Train Express departs daily from Los Angeles, July 21-24, 2016. Quintessential themes will be recreated on board while additional events will be built around each railcar and their defining traits. Fans can choose their adventure from four immersive experiences: The Wizard Express The Sci-fi Universe Lounge TRAXX Celebrity Lounge Heroes vs Villains Lounge

The Cosplay Train Express will give “railers” the chance to become part of the Cosplay Universe throughout their adventure.
