How do you do bug bashes in your company/team?

Hey Ministry of Testing community!

I was wondering how different teams or companies host “bug bashes”, where basically a large group of people get together and start trying to breaking the app to log any potential defects. It might be called something else in your workplace.

Recently we hosted one for a new product going out to production soon and we got lots of valuable feedback and defects found from many people outside our team.

I’m curious to see if others know of some cool tools, processes, resources to host bug bashes. We mainly relied on a shared word document, form or spreadsheet where people can report issues.

What was the largest bug bash you ever hosted? How long did they last for you?

Thanks for your time!
