Bob-ombs Away is a 1-vs.-3 minigame playable in Mario Party 8.

Introduction[edit]

A player on the ledge at the top drops a Bob-omb onto the pegs. The Bob-omb collides with each of pegs and falls in front of the solo player, exploding and surprising them. The player moves back to their position, and the minigame starts.

Gameplay[edit]

The three players on top of the wall attempt to hit the solo player with Bob-ombs, while the solo player must avoid getting caught in the Bob-ombs' explosions. Because of the pegs on the wall that bump the Bob-ombs in different directions, the team and solo player must analyze it more closely to predict where they will fall. On occasion, if two Bob-ombs are thrown at once and fall down the same gap, they may end up stuck. If the solo player survives for thirty seconds, they win; otherwise, the three players win.

Ending[edit]

Results of the minigame.

If the solo player is blown up, the three players do a winning pose; the solo player sits on a platform, appearing dizzy. If the solo player survives, the Bob-ombs that the three players are holding explode in their hands and they're blown to the ground as the single player does a winning pose.

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules"Three players try to blast the solo player within 30 seconds by dropping Bob-ombs."
