Bob-ombic Plague is an 8-Player minigame in Mario Party 7. Its name is a portmanteau of "Bob-omb" and "bubonic plague," an infection.
A curtain spreads to show the eight players, who are facing away from one another, with their eyes closed and their hands on their chests. A light turns on, and everyone puts their right hand up, opens their eyes, and jumps to face each other, then the game begins.
The eight players pass around a Bob-omb. It naturally turns red after a while, and the objective is to prevent the Bob-omb from exploding when it reaches the player. If the Bob-omb explodes in the player's hands, that player and other adjacent players are blasted away. The game thus starts with eight players, then goes down to five, then two, and finally one. The last player standing wins for their team. If the last two players are on the same team, they automatically win.
The winners are shown standing in front of a wall with a picture of a city. After the wall rises and reveals the losers on a lit-up stage behind them, the winners do their victory animations as confetti falls on them while the losers do their losing animations.
- / – Pass Bob-omb
- Rules – "Form a ring and pass the Bob-omb to the next player. When it blows, players on either side will lose!"
- Advice – "When the Bob-omb turns red, it's ready to blow. Quick! Pass it on!"
