WHAT IS BOBBLE LEAGUE?
Bobble League is an Activity developed by Discord. Work with your friends to control your Bobbles on a tabletop setting in an attempt to score on the other team’s goal. With an emphasis on strategy and teamwork, you will experience a range of emotions in Bobble League as you watch your decisions play out in real-time against the opposing team. Use various Power Plays to improve your odds of scoring.

Since we’re still testing, Bobble League is only available in a small (random) selection of servers. However, you can play Bobble League and other early Activities in the public Discord Games Lab server!
Since the game is still an experimental experience, we’re looking to hear feedback directly from our users so you’ll see Discord devs in there pretty frequently!

Q: Where can I give feedback on Bobble League?

Q: How do I view/delete my Activities on Discord data?
A: To enhance the gameplay experience, Discord Activities access and temporarily store the following user data once a user joins the Activity:
- Discord ID
For Activities played in a single session, user data is stored so long as the Activity remains active, even if the user leaves the Activity. Once all users leave the Activity and it is determined the Activity has ended, the user data is deleted and no longer retained.
