Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

This is a video game, but it's a great face to face co-op where only one person is actually using the "game" and everyone else references a bomb defusal manual (found here) to instruct the player on the computer how to disable the bomb.

VIDEO MAY CONTAIN ADULT LANGUAGE! I HAVE NOT SCREENED THE VIDEO BEFORE POSTING!


If you have a computer in your gaming space or a laptop, I highly recommend this if you like real time games, co-ops, puzzle games, etc.

It's super fun for a few evenings. You're going to want a binder, sheet protectors (8.5 x 11, not card sleeves ) and some dry erase markers.

Yes, it is very fun. I've done only the first few parts of the campaign but I'm looking forward to playing more of it. Highly recommended!

A binder? I'm making 4!

Although I prefer scratch paper to dry erase for notes and what not.

Yeah, You just never know with you tube and I know that this game has pushed me to using some adult language.

I play this with my Google Pixel and Daydream VR googles. Great game. Get's really hard when you to do 6 modules.

I originally had the sheets bound, but it was easier to keep the sheets loose so we could find the pages we needed.

I've played this during lunch at work, with the bomb defuser in one room and the people with the instructions in another while we communicate over speaker phones. It really makes the game work even better that way, because you don't have to be in the room with the bomb if it explodes.

Thanks for the heads up, never heard of this as well and it looks like a lot of fun. What's the best amount of players this would work with aside from the one looking at the screen? 1-3 "experts"? Too many and I assume there's not much to do for some of them?

2 would be best, in my opinion. One for the bomb, one for the manual.

Playing with 3 or 4 defusers is really fun. Coordinating the work is the big challenge, a bit like the captain role in Captain Sonar.

Yeah, there's no way you're surviving anything past the early challenges with only one person helping. The person at the bomb has to start shouting out everything they can see while the others are simultaneously figuring out how to defuse their own component. You can scale the difficulty of the bomb by the number of players, but it can handle 3-4 easily, probably more, but I haven't seen too much of the game.
