Game of the Week" Time Bombs" (Big Group/Camp Game)

Five Ticking Time Bombs Are Hidden and Time is Running Out. 

Which Team Will Find Them Before It Is To Late to Save Your Next Retreat....Camp....or Lock-in!


- 5 battery powered alarm clocks (*ones that have an alarm that do not have an auto-shut off)
- 5 empty paper towel rolls
- 5 rubber bands
- Some string
- Can of red spray paint.
* All to create your Time Bomb, See illustration below.

Quick Explanation:
- This is a night time game best played in the dark. It is a listening game and a team work game. The larger the area the better. You need to set all the "bombs" to a specific time to go off right after your game starts, so this takes a little bit of planning ahead

. You will be hiding your "bombs" as far and as wide as you can. Teams or small groups will then have to find them purely by sound.
- For an outdoor area allow teams to use flashlights and decide how many flashlights each group gets based on number of team members.
- For an indoor area you can decide whether or not flashlights are needed based on your building and lighting.

Simple Rules:

On "go" teams have a set amount of time to find and collect as many "Time Bombs" as they can. The team with the most "Time Bombs" wins. 


- Alarm Clock Purchase Suggestion: The Sharp Analog at Walmart
-It is only $4 and it WILL NOT turn off unless you physically turn it off. It will continue to go off for hours and it has an ascending alarm that runs on a 5 minute loop continually getting louder.
