Hot Bob-omb (stylised as Hot BOB-OMB in Mario Party 2) is a 4-player minigame that is found during the events of the Nintendo 64 game Mario Party and Mario Party 2 as a battle minigame. Players pass a lit Bob-omb until it explodes, as in the real world game Hot Potato and the song from the The Wiggles, off which the minigame's name is a pun.

Gameplay[edit]

It is played similarly to Hot Potato; however, players toss a Bob-omb. If one of the players does not catch the Bob-omb on time, the player will slow down at a moment and possibly the Bob-omb explodes if it is going to explode. If a player is holding a Bob-omb when it explodes, they are eliminated from the game. After about 30 seconds, the Bob-omb explodes.

In Mario Party, the game ends after one person loses, while in Mario Party 2, the game keeps on going until there is one person left standing.

The minigame can be purchased from the Mini-Game House for 300 coins when it is available for a purchase in Mario Party.

Trivia[edit]

  • Bob-ombic Plague is a minigame from Mario Party 7 similar to this minigame, except it is an 8-player minigame and has a slightly different mechanic.
  • The Mario Party version of this minigame appears to be set on the same stage as Bash 'n' Cash and Grab Bag, except that a metal cage is placed all around the pit, possibly to prevent the Bob-omb from going out of bounds, or so that the players don't try escaping.
