Countdown Crisis is an All-Play Minigame in Wii Party U.


The players have to pass a bomb to each other and survive until there is only one of them left.

Note: If a player manage to pass the bomb the exact moment it reaches 0, they will lose, and if they pass it seconds before it reaches 0, the player they pass it to will lose.


  • Hold the Wii Remote vertically.
  • Press A to pass the bomb.


  • Whenever the bomb is about to explode, the Mii’s thumbs will go through it.

    Notice how Araceli and Sara do not have their thumbs showing out.

  • This Minigame resembles Word Bomb and Time Bomb from the original Wii Party, where players pass around a bomb with a timer.
