How to Play

Sphero has become a ticking time-bomb and will explode* at any time between 5 and 60 seconds from when the game starts!

Shake Sphero once to start each round.

Each player holds Sphero still for as long as he dares as the timer ticks away! Every second played equals points and the longer a player holds on the more points per second he gets.

Then, if it hasn't exploded, shake Sphero once and quickly pass it to the next player.

Keep playing like this until Sphero blows! The player left holding Sphero loses his points for that round. The next player starts the next round.

The first player to reach the selected target wins!

* Sphero doesn't really explode!

Applaud's comments:
Hey guys, my new game Pass the Sphero is now available. Its a party game for 2 to 6 players and uses the Sphero robotic ball from Orbotix as the controller. The idea of the game is that Sphero is a ticking time-bomb and will 'explode' at a random time. Players hold on to Sphero for as long as they dare, racking up points per second. The longer they hold the more points per second they get. But they must shake Sphero and pass it to the next player before it blows or they lose their points in that round. The first to reach the pre-selected target wins.

There's a non-Sphero version which uses the device alone and it's called Pass the Bomb.

Look forward to hearing if you have any feedback.
