Game Guide: Balloon Game

Written By: Lagoonin / Graphics By: d-gen


Balloon Game is an extremely commonly played game, you can see it hosted in USDF HQ and other hotel rooms! So of course this guide was overdue being written, so here it is!

DISCLAIMER: every host may host this game slightly differently, so make sure you are always following their instructions.

How to Play

  1. Line up when the host calls for all players, a Rainbow Balloons item will be available, it can give out Pink, Orange, Green and Blue Balloons.
  2. Everybody playing takes a balloon, sometimes this is done one by one in the queue and others all at once, make sure to pay attention to your hosts HTP instructions. If active positions are playing, the host picks their balloon for them prior to step 3.
  3. The host takes a balloon, everybody who has that same balloon colour is out of the game!
  4. There are a few ways that the final round is done, a common one is that the two final competitors take two different balloon colours and the host picks until they take one of the colours the competitors have, in which case that person loses and the final one standing is the winner!


  1. If you have been told to collect your balloons in a queue formation, do not skip the queue.
  2. Do not double select a balloon, try and only click “use” once in order to avoid doing it by accident.
  3. Only collect your balloon when the host calls for everybody to take one.
