Bubblee Pop + Contest

Postby sourisdudesert » 05 April 2017, 18:10


We are proud to introduce today Bubblee Pop, a game by Grégory Oliver published by Bankiiz Editions.

Bubblee Pop is a very simple Tile-matching game ("Candy Crush" style) for two smart players. The "Bubblees" are falling from the Sky, located between the two players. The goal is to align at least 3 of them with the same color to make them "Pop" and score 1 point for each popping Bubblee.

On your turn, first you can swap 2 adjacent Bubblees in the Sky, and then you must make 2 adjacent Bubblees fall from the Sky to your side.

In addition, when you Pop some Bubblees, you get a special extra power which depends on the color of the Bubblees you just scored. For example, the Red power allows you to swap 2 adjacent Bubblees on your opponent's planet and break all his/her plans, while the Yellow power allows you to remove and score one Bubblee on your side of any color.

And that's it! What makes this game a great game is the following:
_ you can learn how to play in 30 seconds,
_ it really feels like some popular video games like Candy Crush or Tetris,
_ BUT this is a two players game, with a lot of interactions.

To make this news even more lovely, Bankiiz Editions is organizing a contest for the launch of the game! The contest starts now, and ends on April 19th at 16:00 (CET). The 3 first players on BGA rankings at this time are going to win:
_ 1st player: Bubblee Pop official playmat + Bubblee Pop expansion as soon as available (09/2017) + Draw bag Bubblee Pop.
_ 2nd player: Bubblee Pop expansion as soon as available (09/2017) + Draw bag Bubblee Pop.
_ 3rd player: Draw bag Bubblee Pop.

For this adaptation, Board Game Arena would like to thank Bankiiz Editions for publishing this wonderful game and for making it possible to have it here, and also Ludovic Bezzar who developed this adaptation using BGA Studio :)

Have fun!

Be careful not to fill a row with 5 or 6 bubblees without popping them out.
The game immediately ends.

In my opinion this move should not be allowed and been blocked by the game interface.

This is allowed but in this case you lose the game, which was not the case but now it is as this bug has been fixed.

I had colours appearing incorrectly that would change when I refreshed. It was frustrating to make a strategy only to have the game "surprise" me with an entirely different board than I'd been developing on my screen.

This game is needs a lot of work.

There is a bug open and I asked specific information to help us to reproduce it.

Please post information there so we can fix the issue.

I missunderstood the rules the first time I read them and it came to be a sugestion.

What if at the end of the game the black stones in your planet would count 1 point even if they are not in your score area? That would make interesting to have stones in some cases. If not they are all the time avoided and send to the oponent because they are just bad. A player could collect some to win the game if it is really tight. But they bother if you have too many.

easy = 3 black balls in each player area (left, middle, right columns)
medium = 4 black balls (2 in middle column)
hard = 5 black balls (3 in middle column)

Hard = 5 black balls; 2 in left, 1 in middle and 2 in right column.
