BOOM is designed to be a quick reading and recall game using commons digraphs.This pack contains words using the digraphs: wh, th and sh.
BOOM is played as a 2 or 3 player game. The aim of the game is to end up with the least number of cards. Mix the Digraph (word) cards and the TICK cards together and divide the pack evenly amongst the players. Place the BOOM cards face-up in between the 2 players but slightly to the side of play.
Players are to keep their pack face down (not looking at their cards). Player 1 takes their top card and places it face-up in the middle, between the players, reading the word as they put it down. Player 2 does the same and it continues in turns until a TICK card is played. It is noted who played the TICK card. When that player has played 2 TICK cards, they must take a BOOM card from the BOOM pack and place it beside them (Tick, Tick, BOOM!), and then pick up all the cards in the discard pile. The other player then starts again and play continues in this way until a player has 5 BOOM cards beside them. At this point, play ends and players count their cards. The winner is the player with the least number of cards.
