This classic in party games has one thing that completely makes the game - the random timer bomb. This relatively simple device changes to whole game by adding uncertainty and suspense in spades. In the right group (which could be almost any, as long as all are able spellers) it is the ultimate party game.
Pass the bomb really gets you thinking. The bomb makes you go crazy. Sometimes I concentrate on the bomb more than getting the words out of my mouth. On top of that you have to think if you can use the letters at the beggining, end or anywhere in the word. Talk about multi-tasking!!!! Very fun game to play!
