Bubble Bobble Board Game

About Bubble Bobble

Before jumping into the rare Bubble Bobble board game , here’s a little info about the history of the game.

Originally made by Taito (created by Fukio Mitsuji) in 1986 where it was released in arcades all over the world.

With it’s success saw the release of the game to home systems like Nintendo. Other versions of the game has come out, but the concept it generally the same; multiple levels of different 2D puzzles (more info here).

Bubble Bobble Board Game

There have been many different type of Bubble Bobble items showcased on Game Life such as mini figures, birthday supplies,. t-shirts and so forth. But this item is the first of it’s showing.

Someone listed a Bubble Bobble Board Game (link here). The catch here is that it’s Korean. One might ask why Game Life didn’t list an English version of the game.

Simple.

There was never an English board game made. Now it’s not know why there was never a board game made, but I am assuming that board game makers didn’t see a lucrative channel in order to invest in creating the board game (since they would need to produce in volumes).

This is why there are many collectors who collect game collectibles around the world, since many of the coolest items were never made in North America. We can name several highly collectible items that were only released in Europe or in Asia but let’s continue with this board game.

Value

The seller knows the Bubble Bobble board game is a collectors item which is why it’s priced at $99. The game is NOs (New Old Stock) which is why the price is quite high for a game that’s no even English.

Some of you might think, “whats the point of getting this game when it’s all in Korean“?

Hardcore collectors won’t be bothered by this, and they might even take it a step further to get the board game translated just to play it. Judging by the pictures, the game looks like a lot of fun!
