WHAT IS BOBBLE BASH?
Bobble Bash is an Activity developed by Discord. It is a tabletop point collection game, where players bash their way between obstacles to score and win. Think shuffleboard meets bumper cars. Similar to Bobble League, the game features turn-based strategy and physics.
!PHOTO AND MOTION SENSITIVITY WARNING!
This game contains motion that might cause discomfort or motion sickness. You can zoom out for a steady camera or disable the camera shake in the options menu!
HOW TO START A BOBBLE BASH GAME
There are many different ways you can launch Bobble Bash in the Discord app for you and your friends! Whether in a server’s voice channel or a direct message, you can check out Activities on Discord for instructions on how to start any Activity.
Heads up! Some mobile devices might not meet the minimum requirements for Bobble Bash, which could make the game run slower. For the best experience, we recommend playing Bobble Bash on the Discord desktop app.
HOW TO PLAY BOBBLE BASH
Vote on a series! Two of the five series will appear on the screen for players to vote on. Each series has four levels for you to bash your way through to victory. The Random Series is a selection of four levels from any of the series.
There is a limit of 8 active players in Bobble Bash. Once 8 players have voted, a “Game is full'' message will appear.
To spectate, players can opt out of voting and will automatically be transitioned into the spectator queue once the game starts. If a spectator wishes to join a game in progress, they can click the “join game” button and will start playing at the start of the next level in the series.
Start the game! Once at least one player votes on a series, the countdown timer starts. When it reaches zero, anyone who has voted will be taken to the first level.
Move your Bobble and collect points! Click (or tap) and drag to aim. The color and length of your aim arrow reflect the strength and distance of your move.
Players gain points by collecting diamonds, gems, and stars. Points are also awarded when colliding with obstacles and other players. Certain levels have specific goals or waypoints that earn points as well!
Earn badges and track your stats! At the end of each level, bonus points are randomly awarded based on specific actions - or inactions - taken by players during the game. See which badges you’ve been awarded, check out your lifetime points earned, and boast about the number of matches or series you’ve won.
Players can view their stats by selecting “My Stats” on the series voting screen. Anyone’s stats are accessible by clicking on their avatars inside the activity. Participating players see their stats at the end of a series, and spectators will see the Grand Champion’s stats.
Get crowned as champion! The player with the most points at the end of each level will win that level, and the player with the most points at the end of the series will be crowned champion.
If a player wins the series, a victory crown will appear over their avatar for the duration of the next series.
