The Los Angeles-based maker of Exploding Kittens and Throw Throw Burrito board games ordered 1 million extra units from its factory in China with the hope of preventing coronavirus from ruining its Christmas sales.

The move from the company, which sells product through Target TGT., Walmart WMT.N, and Amazon.com AMZN.O, comes as  U.S. suppliers and retailers have been rebuilding depleted inventories and battling uncertainty by stockpiling pandemic sellers such as toys, refrigerators, home furnishings and booze.

In the last few months, “I started getting the games out of China as fast as possible,” said Carly McGinnis, chief operating officer at Exploding Kittens.
