*** 8/10 Everything Board Games***
A text message leads you to a ticking bomb. Tic-toc! Tic-toc! Every second counts. Which wire to cut – the blue or the red one? Tic-toc! Tic-toc! How to set the control knobs? Tic-toc! Tic-toc! Only two minutes left… Your flashlight battery runs out. The adrenaline kicks in. Will you keep a cool head and manage to defuse the bomb?
- Work together with your Expert Team and see how many people you can save
- Describe what you see using just words so that others understand
- Let your Expert Team talk you through the bomb defusal
- Put your communication skills to the test
- Check leaderboards and see how teams from around the world are doing
WARNING: Time pressure and adrenaline rush may lead to shouting, swearing, and misunderstandings, which can cause temporary resentment between friends or silent treatment from a spouse…
One of the players takes on the role of the Unlikely Hero, who finds a bomb and tries to defuse it. The hero is the only player who uses iPad or iPhone. The other players become the Expert Team and they have access to the bomb defusal manual. They cannot see what the Hero sees on the screen, and the Hero cannot see the content of the manual.
Players can only use verbal communication, just as if the Expert Team and the Unlikely Hero were talking through a radio.

Ratings and Reviews
Challenging and addictive
I enjoy this game very much! I don’t have any complaints but i do have warnings: DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME IF YOU GET ANXIETY AND STRESS FAST!!
This game is almost a thriller for the fact you are on a time limit and have to communicate with your piers. This game is beneficial for improving communication skills. I played this with my brother and there was a lot of screaming for the fact we both kept feeling the pressure of defusing this bomb. The backstory of the origin of this bomb is entertaining. Highly recommend this game if you want to challenge your trust with your friends/family and how much you rely on each other!! Definitely a 5-star-rated game from me!! 😄😄

Thank you for playing the game and for your kind feedback!
Keep defusing those bombs :)
I Downloaded this game by searching for the topic of bomb defusing, and I found this, I took a look at the game and it is amazing, it has a full manual and there are many different modules that are challenging yet fun I recommend this game and so far I haven’t gotten ads so it might also be ad free
Minor Issues + Typos
I love the idea and concept of the game but there are some problems within either the game itself or the instructions. On multiple occasions the “Pizza” module has failed to disarm. I have tried absolutely everything to the point of playing with the instructions in hand. Nothing seems to disarm it. If I play random and get that module in my game. I basically have lost before even starting. I love the idea of the game but it just falls short on the small things. Other then that it’s probably one of my favorite things to play.

Hi! Thank you for playing the game and for your review!
Please make sure you are using the right manual for the device you're using - there is a difference in the way you disarm bombs depending on whether you're using an iPad or a iPhone.
It would be great if you could contact us directly with some details about your device and perhaps screenshots: firstname.lastname@example.org.
