Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

I bought a refurbished Gear VR headset recently.  It’s great, but my biggest problem is that I don’t own a compatible phone…Jen does.  So I can only play with it when she’s around, but not using her phone.  Last night we started playing a game with it together, though, and it was a ton of fun.  The game is Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, where the person wearing the VR headset is in charge of disarming a bomb, and the other people (just me in this case) are the “experts” with the bomb manual that says how to do it.  For example, the person wearing the headset might say “Ok, I have a module here with a bunch of wires”, and then the expert flips through the manual to find the section on wires.  “How many wires?  Are there more than 3 reds?  Is there a vowel in the serial number on the side of the bomb?  Ok, cut the second wire”

We took turns going back and forth wearing the headset and being the expert and made it through the first 5-10 levels or so.
