The Oatmeal is at it again with Bears VS Babies


Do you love Exploding Kittens? If you have no idea what I’m talking about it’s a fantastic card game developed by the creator of “The Oatmeal” Matthew Inman and game designer Elan Lee, learn more about it here.

Well, they are at it again with the next best game ever: Bears VS. Babies. And what might you ask is the purpose of this game? Obviously, it’s to build amazing bear/monsters and eat babies!

You heard me right, the winner of the game is the player who is able to eat the most babies and defeat the growing baby army.



The basic premise is each player draws cards, and tries to create monsters out of diabolical body parts, larger monsters made of more cards are stronger, smaller monsters are weaker. Then when you have a monster you can combat babies (of differing power levels), if your power is higher than that of the baby you eat it! But if the baby is more powerful it destroys your monster. You can also attack other players, making it even more challenging to eat those babies.

Since it’s a kick-starter and still in development I haven’t been able to play the game for myself yet. But don’t you know it I’ve donated to it so I can get my own set to play ASAP. I’m so pumped for this to be my new favorite thing ever!

If you haven’t already, check out the video at the top of this post for all the details. And don’t forget to pick up these other fine oatmeal products:


Maddie Ferguson Growing up right outside of Princeton NJ, she spent much of her time with pals in make believe comic book worlds or out in her backyard looking for Totoro. Her greatest goal as a child was to grow up and become blue, thanks to night crawler, mystique and Dr Manhattan (just a few of her favorite blues!). While she has a love for any solid Disney/Pixar children's film, gotta love those feels!, she is an openly admitted horror addict. We know she has a problem but heck if she'll ever change! She enjoys filling her movie time looking for the next great scare, with amazingly hard to watch gore, and of course setting aside time for the occasional zombie + sushi movie nights with just about any face chewing zombie flick. Pandemic? Apocalypse? Zombeavers? She's got more than a few weapons in her liquor cabinet so bring it on!
