Bubble Bump or Bubble Soccer is a popular team building game that has definitely left many people with big smiles. It is a high-energy team building game that also engages everyone in the team to play it non-competitively. Although Bubble Bump may look like a rough game at first, it is actually a great way for you to break off from all formalities and professionalism at work. For a start, wearing the Bubble Soccer suit already looks ridiculously amusing. The fun and laughter begin when you start with the different games. So if you are new to Bubble Soccer, here are a few games that can be played with your suit on:
1. Bubble Bump VIP
Split your players into 2 teams. A player from Team 1 will be appointed to be the VIP whereas the rest of the members will act as the bodyguards. As bodyguards, you need to protect your VIP as you move to the other end of the court. On the other hand, the entire of Team 2 will be charging towards the VIP and will try to bump him or her down. If Team 1 successfully brings their VIP across, points will be awarded to them! However, if Team 2 manages to bump their VIP down, points will go to them and they will get to choose the next VIP.
2. Bubble Bump Invasion
The name of this game literally speaks for itself. There will be 2 teams standing inside the rectangular box of their “homes”. When the whistle blows, players from each team will come running and bumping into each other. The first team to have all players on the other side of the pitch wins the game.
3. Bubble Bump Soccer
The most classic and traditional game of all time is the Bubble Bump Soccer. It is played exactly like soccer except that no one plays any position. There will not be a goalkeeper in place too. The soccer ball will start in the middle of the pitch and players will start running and kicking when the whistle blows. Note that you are going to get bumped by your opponents for sure. It is easy to run and kick the ball but the challenge comes when you are in your Bubble Bump suit. This game really tests your multi-tasking skills – kicking the ball and looking ahead as you try not to get bumped by anyone.
4. Last Bubble Bump Standing
The match will kick off with a blow from the whistle made by the referee or facilitator. In this game, you need to save yourself first before your friends or colleagues. Here’s why: If you are the first to get bumped, you are out of the game. Then your life in the game would be so short lived and you have to sit on the sideline. Waiting can be boring. Try defending yourself as much. The last Bubble Bump to be standing wins the game!
5. Bubble Bump Middle Man
Only 1 person among the players would need to volunteer himself or herself to stand in the middle of the pitch. The rest of the players will separate themselves into lining up at 2 sides of the court. As soon as the referee or facilitator blows the whistle, everyone on the sideline must run to the opposite side. The middleman is supposed to bump as many people possible while they run across. Those who got bumped will join the middle man and they will continue bumping until there’s only 1 left on the pitch.
6. Bubble Bump Old School “500”
This time around, you will be playing with a squishy. The referee will be throwing the squishy in the air and you have to catch it. Each throw of the squishy will have a different value too. Since your hands are trapped in the Bubble Bump suit, you have to catch it through the hole of the suit that is just above your head. While you are trying to catch it, avoid from getting bumped by other players. The first person to get 500 points will win!
7. Bubble Bump Sumo King
Sounds like a game of knocking each other down – quite literally. There will be 2 players in their Bubble Bump suits standing in a huge ring. The whistle blows off and the 2 players will run into each other and hence, get bumped. But the game is not as simple as that. You have to try to bump your opponent out of the ring!
8. Bubble Bump Ball Bowling
If there is one thing that you need to know about this game, it would be to be brace yourself! One lucky person would be the bowling bowl. The rest of the team members will get into formation and act as the pins. Here’s a tip: a 5 pin formation works the best! The bowling bowl will have to run at full speed towards the pins and bump everyone down. However, you’ve only got 2 tries at this. Go hard or go home!
