Whatever's on the bomb's clock.


"Think of something that falls into the given category, and then pass the bomb. But be quick, or... KA-BOOM!"

Word Bomb is a House Party mode in Wii Party.


The Wii Remote is used as a bomb in this game, like in Time Bomb. A word is confirmed with the A button, and taken back by the 2 button.


First, a category is selected from a list of four. Then, it must be confirmed. If it's thrown away, a new category is selected from a new group of four. If the category is agreed on by the players, the game starts. On each turn, the player who has the bomb has to say any word in the given category within 10 seconds, and then pass the bomb (the Wii Remote) to the next player. If a player doesn't say a word in time and the bomb explodes, and that player loses.


Here are some of the categories that can appear, without striving for completeness:

  • Words that start with a given letter
  • Beverages
  • Birds
  • Black Things
  • Blue Things
  • Dances
