Welcome to my Mini-FAQ for Chrono Trigger, I am OboeDude and this is my fourth
submitted FAQ.

This guide's name is pretty explantory: this guide will cover all the various
mini-games that are in this game.

This guide HAS spoilers, it's unavoidable.

Where it is found: Millennial Fair, left side of the 1st screen.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rewards: 1 Silver Point								

      
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
How to play the game: Press A once when facing the scale to start the game.
You will move back and forth, your goal is to press A once again when your 
character is far enough back. This will cause the pointer on the scale to hit
the bell, thus winning the prize.                                           
                                                                            
                                                                             
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tips on beating it: Your character has to be almost ALL the way back to be
able to hit the bell. Your character will be about touching the trees when you
should press A. 

If you look carefully at the trees, there is this sort of indent in them. Your
goal is to press A when you are in the small clearing.

  Norstein Bekkler's Tent of Horrors [3B2]
--------------------------------------------

_____________________________________________________________________________
Where it is found: Millennia Fair, upper right corner of the first screen 
_____________________________________________________________________________


This mini-game is unique in that it is split into three different ones. They
change depending on how many silver points you use. You can bet 10, 40, or 80
points. All three will be covered in seperate sections below.


_____________________________________________________________________________
10 Points Game [3B2A]
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pre-Requirements: 10 silver points				
                              						     
                                                                            
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rewards: Cat Food
Plush							     
                      							     
Note: Both items can be seen in your bedroom. 					
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
How to play the game: Three identical guards stand in a horizontal line and
tell you their names. They then proceed to shuffle around, and you must tell
where X person is standing after it is over.                                  
                                                                            
                                                                             
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tips on beating it: This game is actually the hardest of the three games.
The other two games rely on skill while this one has a more random luck to it.
It would be an easy matter if the guards didn't mingle in a group - they tend 
to come together and then pause before leaving in seperate directions. They 
might have changed their direction or they might not have, this game will
demand a whole lot of luck on our part to win.                               
                 
However, there is one small factor that you can use to win easily.

Each of the three guards walk on different "levels". Note which one is on
which level, and then choose accordingly.

40 Points Game [3B2B]
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pre-Requirements: 40 silver points				
                              						     
                                                                            
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rewards: Doppell Doll (for all seven characters - Credit to Mighty Oracle)
Catfood								     
                      							     

Note: Doppell Doll is a great decoration, it is worth learning this game.
And who knows, you use it later in the game...

									     
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
How to play the game: You must mimic the movements of your clone. There are
four actions, raise left arm (L button), raise right arm (R button), laugh
(Y button), and jump up surprised (A button).

You must correctly follow his actions for times. He moves faster and faster,
and sometimes repeats actions (but you have to still press the button again).
                                                                            
                                                                             
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tips on beating it: This game will take practice and good reflexes. First of 
all, DO NOT rush. Once you see him move, take a moment to remember what button
it was. You have a few seconds to mimic him before you run out of time.

If he is seemingly holding the same pose over and over, and you saw the ghost
jump, remember to press the same button again. Otherwise, you will lose (yes
I know, stupid rule).    

Sound helps you tell when the next pose is striked.

80 Points Game [3B2C]
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pre-Requirements: 80 silver points.					
                              						     
                                                                            
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rewards: Cat (extra one)
Catfood								     
                      							     
Note: You will have two Cats in the first floor of your house now.	
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
How to play the game: One of your teammates is put on a rope and is slowly
lowered while three animals charge you. There are three columns, one with
a beanbag and an animal. Pressing A will cause the beanbags to fire at the
enemy, hurling them backward.

There also is a blue switch that appears every 5 seconds. Pressing A, will 
make it move the rope that is holding your teammate up, away from danger.

The game ends when either:

A) You force back all three animals before the rope gets to the bottom.
B) One or more of the animals gets past the beanbags
C) Your teammate is lowered to a certain height on the rope.                
                                                                            
                                                                             
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tips on beating it: First of all, you must be conscious at all times of your
teammate. The spot where you will lose if he is dropped there...it's much 
lower than most people expect.

Nevertheless, this is actually the easiest of the three games. The pattern
is simple: when you see the blue switch, don't run to it immedietely. Instead,
wait until you get to throw the beanbag farthest away from it, then run to the
switch and back.

For you people who need more specific directions, do this:

1) When game starts, rush to the beanbag to the farthest left. Throw
2) Move to the right. Throw
3) Repeat 2.
4) Go back to the first beanbag. 
5) Repeat 2 and 3, blue switch should be out by now and farthest left animal
 will be out of play with luck.
6) Press blue switch with haste, then repeat throwing beanbags. 
7) Repeat throwing beanbags then rush the blue switch after you throw the
farthest right beanbag.

This game is very simple, and even if you let the animal almost touch the 
beanbag, you can still recover and win the game.                             
                                                 

Following is submitted by Vampyric Kitty (that is his AIM):    

"For Bekkler's tent, 80 points, I find it easier to start by running to the 
right first.  Done quickly enough while mashing the A button, you can push 
the farthest right monster into the cage right off the bat.
 
The middle one, then, might take one or two hits, depending on how quickly
you get to it

By then, you should only have to alternate between the left most and the blue
light, which are right next to each other"

Once again, credit goes to Vampyric Kitty (on AIM).

  Gato Battle [3B3]
---------------------

_____________________________________________________________________________
Difficulty: Easy                      
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Where it is found: Millennia Fair, screen after left exit from the second 
screen.
                                                                             
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pre-Requirements: None, just have a decent amount of HP/MP if you are doing 
this at the beginning of the game. 					
                              						     
                                                                            
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rewards: Mainly 15 silver points

You also get: 10 exp, some TP, etc.					
                      							     
									     
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
How to play the game: Just talk to him to battle him. Defeat him to get 15
Silver Points. You can keep fighting him over and over.                      
                                                                            
                                                                             
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tips on beating it: Gato has some relatively strong attacks, and he has a 
counterattack system. Basically, if you attack him, he will retaliate (unless
in some special situations where he is too far away).

You should be able to beat him at level 1 even, but if you for some really 
weird reason have some trouble, go to the forest to the left of your village 
on the World Map and level up.

  Betting Race [3B4]
----------------------

_____________________________________________________________________________ 
Difficulty: Easy                       
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Where it is found: Millennia Fair and later at the square. First screen, tent
on the middle section. Just left of the Tent of Horrors.
                                                                             
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pre-Requirements: None							     
                              						     
                                                                            
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rewards: 20 Silver Points						
                      							     
									     
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
How to play the game: As you probably saw, there are 4 dressed-up characters
in the square that are running around. When they finish, they will line up
(like A B C D). Then, talk to the guy in the tent to the immediete left. 

He will ask if you want to bet on the next race. After saying Yes, he will
prompt you to choose your choice.

There are four different racers:

Steel Runner: Guy dressed in steel...running...obvious.
Green Ambler: Green reptile...ambling
Catalac: Cat figure (named after vehicle)
G.I Jogger: Soldier from 600 A.D (named after American Government Issue Bill
with the most famous reference being G.I. Joe) --- (CREDIT TO RocketShobbs)


After the race, you can talk to the tent guy to claim your points if you win.
                                                                            
                                                                             
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tips on beating it: It's all luck, but one thing that might be related:

There is a man behind the fence to the right of the finish line that seems
to have advice on who is going to win. He isn't always right, in fact he is
probably right only 1/3 to 1/2 the time. Your call whether you want to follow
him.                                                      
                        
There is ONE way, however, that you can affect the results. You see, by
directly standing in front of a racer, you slow them down. Bet on one guy,
then impede the other three (priority should be the one in second place)

How to play the game: Just keep pressing A. You have to drink 8 bottles of 
the drink and you have to do this in a matter of seconds. It takes several
clicks just to drink one bottle.                                            
                                                                            
                                                                             
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tips on beating it: This game is extremely hard. Back in the SNES day, you
could have cheated with a turbo controller. However, for many people, they
just aren't good enough to get past 5 or 6 cans.

Mashing the button extremely fast does NOT work here. I don't think it's my
DS, but it WON'T count if you hit it extremely fast.

Unfortunately, if you can't hit it very fast...there is no way to beat this
game. 

One easy method to beat this is to sorta slide your finger across the A button.

  Dome Animal Chase [3B6]
---------------------------

_____________________________________________________________________________
Difficulty: Easy                      
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Where it is found: Atlar Dome, in 2300 A.D

Pre-Requirements: None 							     
                              						     
                                                                            
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rewards: Advance with the storyline.					    
                      							     
									     
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
How to play the game: This isn't really a mini-game...but here goes. The goal
is to catch the animal before it escapes. It runs on a series of planks that
twist and twine a few times. Press A when you are in its range to catch it.   
                                                                    
                                                                             
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tips on beating it: As always, run after the animal. When you get to a corner,
don't stop or pause. Keep moving forward, and use the map to anticipate an
upcoming corner.  

Start pressing A when you a thumb distance away from the animal.

If done perfectly, you should catch the animal half-way across the screen.

  Johnny Bike Racing [3B7]
----------------------------

_____________________________________________________________________________
Difficulty: Medium                       
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Where it is found: Site 32, in 2300 A.D
                                                                             
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pre-Requirements: None. 					
                              						     
                                                                            
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rewards: Free ride past Site 32. 

Also, in the SNES version at least, if you got a score of 777, Johnny gave you
 10 Mid-ethers.

(Credit goes to CVagts)

Note: To get rewards, you must have the race log and the Rx-xR to record your
top three scores (and also to win prizes). (Credit to soultpp and Guide Guy)

To get the race log you must:

1) Start at the screen you finish the race at (exit to the area).
2) Go to the left. 
3) Beat the few enemies then find the chest with the log in it. 
                      							     
									     
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
How to play the game: As Johnny tells you, you can't make your bike go
"faster". But pressing the Left Directional Pad button will make your bike 
move forward, then promptly fall back. 

You get points for hitting his front of his motorcycle with the back of yours.
Actually, you get points for being ahead of him in the race.

(Credit: Mighty Oracle)

You have three turbos, they are pretty useful although:

1) You can't spam them. There is a small period in which you need to wait
before you can use another one.

2) When you active a turbo, Johnny activates one also. You won't be getting
a real lead off this.

To win the race, simply cross the finish line before he does.   

                             
IF YOU SHOW JOHNNY THE RACE RECORDER, Rx-xR will allow you to play a mode with
no turbos. This mode might be a bit harder, so make sure that you time your
strategy, namely moving your cart ahead and bumping his front with your rear.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tips on beating it: There isn't much to do at the beginning few lengths of
the race. There are no obstacles, just throw two of your three turbos out for
the sake of getting more points.

The tricky part gets when it reaches the last part of the race. An easy way
to win the race is to activate a turbo when in range of getting past the line.
You will zoom by and he won't be able to turbo himself fast enough.

It might take a few times, but just by judging the distance correctly, there 
is an easy win

  Prehistoric Drinking Contest [3B8]
--------------------------------------


_____________________________________________________________________________
Difficulty: Medium                        
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Where it is found: 65,000,000 B.C at the prehistoric party. 
                                                                             
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pre-Requirements: None			     
                              						     
                                                                            
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rewards: Advance with the game, getting an important item (for sake of 
avoiding spoilers, I will refrain).					
                      							     
									     
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
How to play the game: Remember that crazy mashing-the-A-button game at the
fair earlier this game? Yeah, you need to beat a similar version of it. The
only difference is that this game is much easier (you can exhale now).

You will have to drink (aka hit the A button) faster than Ayla. 

Don't worry about losing, you get to retry over and over. You only have to win
once to get the item.                                                     
                                                                            
                                                                             
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tips on beating it: I would recommend using solid, yet fast mashing. There 
isn't more advice I can give you but to keep trying, and don't give up in
the middle. It appears that when I did it, I thought I was going to lose, but 
I actually won.

And like I wrote on the other drinking mini-game, hitting the A button like a
maniac does NOT actually count.

  Hunting Range [3B9]
----------------------------

_____________________________________________________________________________
Difficulty: Easy                        
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Where it is found: 65,000,000 B.C, north of the village
                                                                             
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pre-Requirements: None.							     
                              						     
                                                                            
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rewards: You will get items that can be used to redeem ten items, namely:

1) Ruby Gun (weapon)
2) Sage Bow (weapon)
3) Stone Arm (weapon)
4) Flint Edge (weapon)
5) Ruby Vest (armor)
6) Rock Helm (armor)
7) Aeon Blade* (weapon)
8) Dream Bow* (weapon)
9) Dream Gun* (weapon)
10) Magma Hand* (weapon)
11) Ruby Armor* (armor) -- (Credit to soultpp.)

* - can only be gotten after you defeat Magnus. Credit goes to Dangerous K
of GameFAQs.

The ten above items can be redeemed at the northeast house in the village.
          

Also note that the first time you beat a Nu, it drops the Third Eye item. This
only happens once. (Credit to Spencer)           							     
									     
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
How to play the game: Basically, the hunting range is one big screen. All you
have to do is run around and kill stuff. You get items such as petals, fangs,
and feathers. These are used to directly redeem the items mentioned above.

Every minute or so, it starts to rain. There are different enemies when it is
raining.

In the morning, you can fight frogs and slimes. When raining, you can fight 
the Nu.
                                                                             
                                                                            
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tips on beating it: The frog and slime can be beaten by physical attacks
fairly easy. They drop one petals, fang, or feather. 

The Nu, on the other hand, is elusive and packs quite a bit of damage. 

You can only find in when it is raining and in the corners of the map. The
best way to find him is to stand on the elevated tree bridge (accessable by
the vines). Then, you can check the top-right and bottom-right spots for the
Nu.                                                 
 
A mistake with the Nu's attacks was given by Golbatx33 of GameFAQs and 
Vampyric Kitty of AIM, but they still should be recognized for their efforts
:)

The Nu ONLY does ONE attack: an attack that reduces you HP to 1. (Thanks to
soultpp for clearing this up)

They are chosen at random, and most likely using one potion will ensure your
character does not die. 

When you kill him, he drops 3 of every single tradeable item (fang, petal, etc)

Note: This spot is noted as a good way to get TP early on.
Note: This spot is also noted as a good way to make money (selling the items)
