For about thirty nail biting minutes, players nerves are tested to the limit by the threat of the ticking bomb. In turn players must shout out a word that contains the letters on the card and pass the bomb before it 'explodes'. The game starts when one of the cards is turned over and reveals between two and four letters. 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 given a word, they pass the bomb to the next player on the left. The timer on the bomb will 'explode' anytime between 10 and 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.
