The creator of popular comic website The Oatmeal launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to make a card game, and let's just say things are going well for him. "Exploding Kittens," a Russian roulette-inspired game created by The Oatmeal's Matthew Inman along with Elan Lee and Shane Small, reached its $10,000 goal in eight minutes yesterday, Mashable reports, citing an Inman tweet. Within an hour, it had raised $100,000. And that was just the beginning: With 21 days to go in the campaign, it has so far raised more than $1.8 million. (More Kickstarter stories.)
