Pass the Bomb
Family game

$26.00

Pass the Bomb is the ultimate word game that will have the whole family on the edge of their seats!

For about thirty nail-biting minutes, players nerves are tested to the limit as they frantically think of words whilst the timer ticks away, in the hope that they won't be holding the bomb when it explodes! In turn, players must shout out a word that contains the letters on the card and pass the bomb before it ‘explodes’.

To play, turn a card over to reveal random letters. Next, the dice is rolled to determine whether the letters on the card have to be at the beginning, end or anywhere within the word. The red button on the plastic bomb is pressed and as the bomb ticks down, each player must think of a word and pass the bomb on to the next player.

Even those who boast the largest vocabularies suddenly find their minds go completely blank as the bomb ticks away. For example, if the letters on the card are KE then the word might be 'keep' or 'spike'. Once the player has stated a word, they pass the bomb to the left to the next player. The timer on the bomb is variable and will ‘explode’ somewhere between 10-60 seconds. The player holding the bomb when it explodes has to keep the card for that round, and the player with the least amount of cards at the end of the 13th round wins the game.
