Chrono Bomb® , a top-selling game in France, is a super secret spy mission where kids use the included clamps and 27.5-ft. string to create a “laser” field to crawl through. At the end of the maze is the bomb, counting down…tick, tick, tick! So, you have to hurry, carefully, and make it to the end to defuse the bomb and be the hero! Play over and over again, building new courses each time or trying to beat your or your friend’s time! Includes free app for more play value! For ages 7 & up. Requires three AAA batteries, not included.

Allright Mom and Dad – listen up! Your kids are going to want to tackle this mission as soon as they see the box. However, your orders need to be clear! You NEED to help them set this up! Definitely the first time…possibly every time after that. The game play itself is easy – and your kids will totally get it. Setting up the play space takes some practice, and most likely some adult hands. Here’s a secret though – your kids are going to love this game (I know, I’m getting ahead of myself), and they are going to love it even more if you help them set it up and play it with them!

Board games for kids age 7 and up usually don’t strike much fear in our heart as far as durability goes…but this one is a little different. The key to the game is obviously the reel clamp and string. If that doesn’t work properly, your game won’t play properly. Parents should definitely have an active role in set-up and clean-up. If you do…no durability concerns. If you don’t…well, let’s say the game may not play properly.

Chrono Bomb has an undeniably unique look and feel – and your kids are going to go absolutely bonkers for it! We do feel we need to be clear on one thing – the “laser” field uses no actual lasers. It is comprised of string that your children must maneuver through. Once they accept that there are no actual working lasers here they are going to love playing this game!

Chrono Bomb is a super-fun game that your kids are going to love setting up as much as they love playing. Set-up can be different each time, and the game play has them crawling and climbing and using their imagination to the fullest. We love that kids are engaged in set-up because that essentially doubles the play time! Super functional and super fun!

If you’ve read our reviews long enough, you know we like our games to be priced right around $20. However when we got our hands on Chrono Bomb, saw all of the pieces included and how they work together we absolutely understood where the higher price comes in. At just under $30 this isn’t the least expensive game you can find, but if you are willing to drop an extra $10 you are going to be delivering your child their favorite new game!

I’m pretty sure the only other time we’ve seen anything quite like Chrono Bomb is in a Mission Impossible movie. Even without actual working lasers Chrono Bomb is a true original!

Chrono Bomb is one game that your kids are going to be begging to take off the shelves – and once they do, they are going to love playing it. Yes Mom and Dad, it is best for all involved if you help with set-up and clean-up (hey, why did you have kids if you didn’t want to play with them!). Once you work with them on set-up your kids imagination and fun are going to run wild. The price is a little on the high side, but we don’t have any problem with it. Chrono Bomb is an awesome addition to your child’s game collection – one that they are going to love playing again and again!
