Chrono Bomb® FAQ
Chrono Bomb FAQ
1. The set up seems really complicated. How do I know if I'm doing it right?
a. Yes, it can be a little overwhelming the first time you set it up. Just be patient...once you understand the way things connect and the sensitivity of the sensor, it'll be easier the next time! But here are a few set-up tips for now:
b. Set up in a good space with lots of shelves, chairs, tables, etc. to clamp onto...don't clamp onto anything fragile or unstable.
c. Attach clamps to horizontal surfaces (like a shelf) instead of vertical things (like a chair leg).
d. Don't clamp onto anything too large; the clamps work better not fully extended.
2. Where do the reel clamp and sensor go?
a. The reel clamp goes at the beginning of your laser field, and the sensor clamp goes at the end attached to the bomb.
3. How do I get the string out of the reel?
a.Hold the button down and pull on the string.
4. My string is saggy and keeps falling off the clamps...how do I fix it?
a.The string should always be taut. Once you have looped the string through the space, simply tighten it using the reel.
5. Why isn't my timer counting down?
a.You have it in the wrong mode. Check the back of the bomb and switch it to CHRONO mode.
6. Why does the sensor keep beeping when we're not touching the string?
a. First, check that the sensor is level. It has to always be level. Then, just wait for it to "calm down." You may also want to make sure that there are no movements nearby causing vibrations. If the string vibrates at all, the sensor will register that as a hit, and beep and jump time. Also, be sure you don't loop string around furniture or the actual clamp, only through the clamp connection point.
7. Where are the lasers? I thought I was buying a laser field.
a.The strings simulate a "laser field" experience. Actual lasers could be dangerous or costly, and this game is all about fun!
8. What do I do with the cards?
a. Scatter them around your laser field area. You must pick them all up as you maneuver the course!
9. What about the app?
a. The app allows you to scan one of the two Special Mission cards as you go through the "laser field" and add some fun and difficulty to your mission! Simply download the Chrono Bomb app (English version) from the App Store or Google Play, depending on what type of device you own. Then, when you reach the Special Mission card, scan it and go on a virtual mission!
