Creating a Discord server is easy; however, maintaining its momentum is harder. One way to keep the spirits up and engagement high is to add gaming bots to your Discord server. It’s a good way to pass time, bond with community members, and stay connected.
Wordle is all the rage these days – so much so that NYT decided it was a great idea to buy it. It’s a web-based word game where you get one new five-letter word every day. You get six tries to guess it, and the difficulty level increases each time.
The Wordle gaming bot brings the game to your server. In the case of multiplayer, you will need to enter the name of the user you want to play Wordle with. You cannot solve more than one Wordle a day, and if you run out of chances, it’s game over for that day!
2. Minesweeper Bot
I remember playing Minecraft on my rusty old Windows computer two decades ago, and so do many of you, I am sure. Minesweeper Bot is a Discord bot that will let you relive the old days.
You can choose the height and width of the mine, number of mines, and choose to play with your server friends using commands. Don’t like numbers? Enable flag mode instead. If you have some friends who would like to join you the game, there’s an option to start a tournament!
3. Virtual Fisher
The Virtual Fisher Discord gaming bot will let you fish from the comfort of your home. You don’t have to rent a boat and find a good spot in the lake. Just use your digital fishing rods, bait, and a boat and see what you can catch.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Can Discord bots be harmful?
Some Discord bots may ask for too many permissions and try and collect data, like contacts, files, etc., even when they don’t need them. Others may try and hack or spam you with unsolicited ads. Be careful and do your due diligence before installation.
2. Who can add a Discord bot to a server?
Only people who have administrative or “Manage Server” permissions on the server can invite a bot. If you don’t have either of these roles, you won’t be able to add bots. If you have created the server, then you are the admin and can invite any bot.
3. Can I create my own Discord bot?
Yes. You’ll need to have some programming skills, though, and a little patience. But if you’re willing to try, we have a guide for you that teaches you how to create your first Discord bot.
