Bombsketball is a 2-vs-2 minigame found in Mario Party. Its name is a combination of "bomb" and "basketball."


Using a Bob-omb as a basketball, both teams must race to score a goal. The players on offense can pass the ball and can make a goal by jumping and pressing B Button to shoot, while the defense can use B Button to steal the ball. If one of the teams scores a goal within the time limit, the teammates win ten Coins each from the losers. If time runs out, the Bob-omb explodes and the minigame ends in a draw.



  • Control Stick – Move
  • A Button – Jump
  • B Button – Pass
  • B Button (When jumping) – Shoot
