Product Description

Pass the Bomb--the game for quick thinkers! Each player tries to get rid of the infernal ticking bomb before the time is up. What counts is quick reactions and the right word at the right time. Each contestant has to pick out a card and then think of words containing the letters that are printed on the card. Only this way can the ticking bomb be passed on to the next player. PASS THE BOMB! is a tremendous success worldwide-find out why for yourself. Includes 110 game cards, special game die, electronic bomb (requires 2 AAA batteries, not included), and instructions. For two or more players ages 12 and up.

The central idea behind Pass the Bomb is for each player, in turn, to create new words using a three letter combination pre-determined by the cards. A roll of the dice decides whether the three letters needs to come at the end, the beginning or or anywhere within the word. A bomb timer goes off after a certain amount of time and the player who, at that moment, has failed to come up with a new word loses that round.
The game is sort of like Boggle in that you are provided some letters and then you need to think as fast as possible to come up with words that other players haven't used yet. What's especially different here is that there's no period of silence like you have with Boggle which makes this a far better party atmosphere game. Because it pushes players to come up with more words on their own it's likely that the game is more educational than Boggle as well. One word of caution: Like many word games, this one is definitely not for younger kids. Above the age of nine or ten should be fine, however.
About the only complaint I have about the game is the bomb timer. The components of the game consist of the cards, one die, and the timer. Given the lack of materials necessary to make the cards and die the bomber should be a little more hi-tech. Instead, the explosion sound is a little bit on the wimpy side.
As a word game fan (Scrabble, Boggle, Upwards, Quiddler) I'd say this is one of the best choices out there. It's more social than Scrabble, Boggle, and Upwards and demands more ability than Quiddler.

My son got this game as a gift. I brought it into my junior high classroom to use on a game day. The kids love this game and request it over and over. Many other teachers have asked to borrow it for their classes. It is a great vocabulary builder. I also made my own cards with letters of the alphabet on them. I use these when we are studying parts of speech -- they have to come up with a noun (adjective, verb, etc) that begins with that letter. This is a great game and a good way to make a rather dull subject more interesting.
