The game, Truth Bombs, is a board game created by the YouTubers Dan Howell and Phil Lester. Dan and Phil make relatable comedy videos on their channels, they also share a gaming channel. Before the game got released, Phil used it as a icebreaker in awkward situations. With the help of Dan; his roommate and best friend, this icebreaker game came to life. With Phil in charge of the game functions, and Dan in charge of the format and the look of the game all together.
Truth Bombs is played with four to eight players. You give each player an answer sheet. They fill it out by putting their name in the target box at the top of the card. Once you have done that you lay out the color mats with the colors in the order, blue, pink, yellow, green, purple, grey, and then black. Then you place a question card on each color mat. When you play you put one mat short of the amount of players you have. To start the game, you have everyone pass their answer sheet to the left. Look at the target box from the answer sheet you have received after you know who you got you then choose a question to answer about that person. Once you chose a question you fill in your response in the corresponding color the question resides in. Once everyone has written down their answer you pass it on to the left again, and you have a new target and you have to chose a question to answer about that person, but now whoever had the sheet before you has filled in a column and you now have one less question to chose from. The game goes on like this and more and more questions disappear, you will continue to play till the last question is answered. Once all questions are answered your card is returned to you and you read the responses. After reading the responses, you choose your favorite answer and try to guess who came up with it. The person who came up with the response gains a point, but if you guess who came up with it you get a point as well. You are guaranteed to have a tremendous amount of fun. In total, the game is amazing and fun to play. No matter what age, you should definitely consider putting it on your Christmas list.
