About “Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes”

One player is trapped in a room with a ticking time bomb they must defuse. The other players are the “Experts” who must give the instructions to defuse the bomb by deciphering the information found in the Bomb Defusal Manual. But there’s a catch: the Experts can’t see the bomb, so everyone will need to talk it out – fast!

Rounds are fast-paced, tense, occasionally silly, and almost always loud. Whether it’s defusing a bomb or deciphering information from the manual, everyone has a crucial role to play. Players can easily join in as Experts by printing or viewing the Bomb Defusal Manual at


  • Challenging puzzles – Test the limits of your communication skills… and friendships?

  • A different bomb every time – Procedurally generated puzzles keep the action fresh.
