💥 Blastball

In this mode, players are split into two rival Blastball teams: Gimchester United and Kitcelona!

Blastball is just like soccer, but instead of kicking the ball, you have to blast it to move it around the field!

Answer questions to earn blasts and remember: Blastball is a team sport! You’ll need to work closely with your team to score goals and defend your side of the field.


How to Start

Host a live game.
Select "Blastball" in the Mode Picker and click "Continue."
Select your desired game settings on the Game Options screen and click continue.
Click the game code to copy and share the link to your game or have your students visit to enter your game's code.
Click the Joining as... button in the lower left-hand corner to toggle between joining as a spectator or as a player.
Once your students are in the lobby and you're ready to start, click the green Start Game button at the bottom of your screen.
Your game will take a few moments to load and your students will be dropped into Blastball! What you see as the host depends on whether you joined as a player or spectator.

Tips & Tricks

Blastball only has a few game options, including Game Duration and Blasts Per Question. You can also turn the in-game commentary on and off.

Want your students to answer more questions? Set the "Blasts per question" option to a lower number.

Use the WASD keys on your keyboard to move around. That way, you can use your right hand for the mouse/trackpad, which may make aiming and blasting easier.

During the game, it can be tricky to tell who is on your team and which goal to aim for. The side you spawn on when the game starts is your goal to protect and your team color is indicated by the scoreboard at the top of the screen, the flags at either end of the field, and the team benches.

Blastball Team Colors

While you're playing, your team members have little arrows above their heads. You can also check the names of your teammates by clicking on the leaderboard icon at the top of the screen.
