The master module holds the leader PIC microcontroller and serves as the master on the I2C bus. To the player, this module is for data display only. A seven segment display shows the time remaining in the game (5 minutes is the default) and how many strikes they have earned. On the top side of the module, a 2x16 LCD screen displays a randomly-generated serial number, as well as colored LED insicators for the randomly-generated flux, rtc, and eps information.
The Code Word module is most closely based on the "Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes" game. In it, players see a readout of a five letter word. They must use the switches to cycle up and down through six possibilities for each of five letter until they can make one of the words from the manual. The rest of the players can use different startegies to help their teammate rule out different words. Once they find a word, the player can push the submit button to check their accxuracy. If it is correct, the module is solved and that portion of the bomb is defused. Otherwise, they earn another strike.
The swiches module presents players with eight switches in two rows, with confusing labels that might easily be mistaken or mixed up. Based on how many of the switches' initial positions match up with two lists, players follow one of three protocols to disarm the module.
Players watch the flashing red light to decode the Morse Code message. If they know morse code they can pass on the word to their teammates with the manual, otherwise the manual has a table that demystifies the dots (a short flash) and dashes (a long flash) into letters and words. Once you know the secret word, dial in the corresponding frequency and push the button to submit.
The Switches Module presents players with color-coded 3.5mm audio cables and ports. Depending on which cables are plugged in and which of the flux, rtc, and ept LEDs are illuminated, players plug, unplug, and rearrange the cables until the module is complete.
A digital verison of the analog staple, the three-number code you need to crack here is based on arithmetic on the serial number.
The Needy Module doesn't do much, but it still had needs. When the status bar gets to the red zone, press the button to flush your capacitors and return to a safe state. Let the beeping keep going, and you'll earn a strike.
