Mix an explosive compound like silver fulminate into the
scratch-off lottery tickets. sell at novelty shops.
Of course, it's only fun until somebody loses an eye. Or
WHEN someone loses an eye. Something like that, at least.
Suggestions for stronger explosives - to raise this
assassin's tool to WMD - are always welcome. Must be stable
enough to survive printing process and shipment - but able to
detonate when someone scratches the ticket.

||RFID chip embedded in card. Scratching connects contacts, activates RFID, is detected by long distance readers mounted in shop. Detection of active RFID chip triggers detonators, entire block explodes demolishing all buildings.
||Dioxygen Difluoride. not strictly an explosive. But
as oxidants go, insanely strong is an
understatement. Causes ice to explode.
||But the article Things I Wont Work With [link] is
brilliant and fascinating.
||[pocmloc] I like how you jumped right to WMD, but
it sounds like youre using the scratch-off as a
trigger for larger device(s) planted elsewhere? Your
idea is not without merit, but may be out of scope
for the original contract.
||[Frankx] I dont see a way to get FOOF into the
scratch-off layer and have it stay put until its
||The more I think about this, the more it seems the
scratch-off material should be a binary explosive.
The microbeads could be a mix, half containing an
oxidizer the other half a reactant. Something like
Tannerite but easier to set off when mixed. Wish
[8th] were here to advise.
