The Big Boom Theory

Two Rooms and a Boom

What It Is: Winter is an excellent time for board games as it’s something that can totally keep you entertained for hours! Luckily there are more creative options than ever out there, like the social game Two Rooms and a Boom. Playable with up to 30 people (wowza), the game divides people up into two separate ‘playing areas’ (the rooms). One player is the President, one player is the Bomber. The aim? For the Bomber to end up in the same room as the President, which can only be deduced by a number of social interactions during timed rounds of play. It’s a little bit Homeland and a whole lotta fun – the more the merrier!

Who It’s For: Your coworkers, to pass a lazy afternoon. Your family, to diffuse tensions over a holiday dinner. Your best friend, who throws the very best board game parties.

What It Costs: $31.99

Where It’s At: You can pick it up at
