Time Bomb is a House Party mode in Wii Party.


The bomb starts with the first player holding the Wii Remote, which is shown as a bomb on screen. They must hold down the button shown and said, rotate carefully to the next player to pass it to, they hold their button, then the first player can let go. The second player still holding the button, rotates to the next player, they hold down a button, the second player lets go and the cycle repeats with button holding and Wii Remote passing. (If this game is played with 2 players, instead of passing in a circle, the players just pass it to and from each other.)

The bomb will explode if the wrong button is pressed, a button is let go too early, or the timer runs out. Once the bomb explodes, the game is over and the loser is the player who has the bomb last time. Occasionally, the shaking sensitivity and maximum time on the bomb will decrease; the former making it more easy for the bomb to explode via shake and the latter making it more easy for the bomb to explode via timeout.


When it's your turn to grab the Remote, hold down the button you are told to, turn around to the next player while still holding the button and when they press and hold their button, you can let go. Be careful not to shake the remote too much during the passing process.


  • It is possible for two players to explode at once, in that case they both lose the game.
  • This and Word Bomb are the only House Party modes to not have a clear winner as they do not use the "Victory" text, music and sounds.
