Mario Party


This is my Mario Party Mini Game Guide

2 vs. 2 Minigames

Deep Sea Divers
    1 person is in the boat and the other in the blue.  The one in the water
dives for the chest while the other moves the boat so the swim back is shorter
leaving more time to grab more.
Desert Dash
    What this game is, is cross contry skiing in the desert.  You work togeth
with you're teammate by moving your feet.
Bombsketball
    All this minigame is is basketball.  If you start with the bomb  --er
ball, allow your teammate to run interference while you shoot the easy jump
shot.
Handcar Havoc
    Tear down the track at top speed.  When the car comes up on two wheels,
push the control stick the opposite way so you don't fall into the lava.
Bobsled Run
    Work together to be the first on the track for an advantage.  To get ahead
watch for the zip pads.

    One player is in a Bowser suit and the others whack you with hammers to
get coins.  Be very fast on your feet to win.

    One player is dressed up like Bowser and is against the other three.

    You run from a plant while the others feed it rain.  Stupid to me, but
