    What are Island Games?

    The Awesome Island Games Lobby

    Today we are proud to introduce Island Games. You might be wondering, what are Island Games? Where did BlockBand go? Well... Let us explain! Earlier this week you may have noticed that the BlockBand icon got removed and replaced with ISLAND GAMES! Since then, there have been so many questions asked on our Discord and the forums - You've been speculating and guessing what the new game(s) are, what they'll look like and what the game play will be like!

    So lets fill you in - Today we're launching the first of THREE new games. Island Games is a set of three new games, that will be launching every Friday for the next three weeks. Today we launch TNT TROUBLE, then we launch [INSERT TOP SECRET NAME HERE :eek:] on the 15th September and [INSERT TOP SECRET NAME HERE :p] on the 22nd of September!

    You didn't think we'd give it all away today did you? ;)

    What is TNT Trouble & How To Play!


    TNT Trouble is a game where blowing things up is normally a good thing. There are two teams, and each team has castles. Your objective is to defend your castles and blow up the other teams castles!

    TNT Trouble In Action

    Castles are identifiable by the beacons. Your objective is to grab TNT from the middle islands, and place it inside the enemies castles where the BEACON is. When you place the TNT inside their castle it will blow up, your aim is to blow up all your enemy castles to win. BUT don't get distracted, you still need to defend your castles and you can't let the TNT timer run out whilst you're holding the TNT otherwise you'll blow up!

    Remember your enemy might have blocked up the entrances to their castles, so it might not be as easy as you'd have hoped to blow their towers up! Work as a team, and winning will be easier.

    You've grabbed the TNT, now you have to make it inside their tower.

    What does BETA mean?

    You may notice that the game shows as being in BETA. This means that the game may have major changes made to it without any notice being given. We're going to be constantly working on all three of the Island Games, taking your thoughts into consideration. We're welcoming all feedback on our forums and will be listening to your feedback for changes you'd like to see.

    Hello guys, we understand that some players are experiencing lag - This should be resolved as games and lobbies restart - We weren't quite expecting the number of people that wanted to join in the first few minutes, and this put some unexpected pressures on resources.

    To reassure you, the game itself has been tested for a while internally with large numbers of players and it appears to be the sheer number of games, lobbies etc starting and sheer number of players joining that are causing the issues. If you're still experiencing issues in the next hour, please let me know by replying here.

    As it says, this game is in BETA, so your feedback is appreciated. Keep playing and let us know what else we need to do to make the experience better for you. I can't wait for you to see the other two games!
