Product Description

For about thirty nail-biting minutes, players' nerves are tested to the limit by the threat of the ticking Bomb.

A card is drawn bearing two or more letter. The variable length fuse (10 seconds to 1 minute) is set and the ticking Bomb is passed to the first player.

In turn, players must shout out a word that contains the letters on the card and pass on the Bomb before it goes off! Words must be in common use and can only be used once in each round. Players may challenge at their discretion.

All too often the word you think of as you await your turn is used by a preceding player and even those who boast the largest vocabularies suddenly find their minds go completely blank as the infernal Bomb ticks away.

Any number may play, but be warned -- this game is not for the shy and retiring!

Hard at first, but fun later.
December 19, 2003

RUBBISH to cannot think of a word with zz in it, but once you've got used to it GREAT! It is very hard thinking of a word with urd in it whilst you have to do it in LESS than one minute. You don't get ANY better, BUT DO NOT GIVE UP. If you keep playing for a while you WILL get the hang of it. Soon you will do 20 words a minute, you will anwser like this:

'zz' 'fizzy'

Time: 0.5 seconds

After you have played about 10 times you will anwser in LESS than a second.
