About this deal
The letters that appear on the card are the letters that must be used in words until the bomb timer explodes. Once the player has correctly used the letters in a word, s/he passes the bomb timer to the player to his/her left.
The letters may be used anywhere in the word. For example, if the letters on the card are "BO" you could say "KABOOM". The letters printed on the cards must be used in that exact sequence as part of a larger word. For example, "ANT" can be used in "PANT" and "ANTELOPE". It cannot be used in "AUNT" or "ADVENTURE". A word may not be used twice in a round, but may be used in a subsequent round. For a more challenging game, do not allow simple derivatives to be used. For example, if "PLAY" has been used, do not use "PLAYS", "PLAYED", "PLAYING", etc.Once the player has stated a word, they pass the bomb to the left to the next player. The timer on the bomb is variable and will ‘explode’ somewhere over ten seconds but less than 60 seconds. The player holding the bomb when it explodes has to keep the card for that round, and the player with the fewest cards at the end of the 13th round wins the game.

When a challenge is made, the player who has been passed the bomb timer may prefer to say a different word and pass the bomb timer on, rather than run the risk of a challenge being overruled and the bomb timer exploding. As soon as the player has completed their turn they must pass on the bomb immediately, If the bomb is "in-between" players when it explodes, it is the following player who is deemed to have been holding the bomb when it exploded, assuming that the object given by the previous player is correct.
