have to start guessing.  Be the first one to be raised to level 5 and you win!

-Shell Shocked-
This game is one of my favorite mini-games in Mario Party 2.  You are a little 
tank, and you have 2 lives, what you do is shoot your opponents, and each time

last one standind, and you win!

the game!

and you win the game!

-Bumper Balls-
This game is also one of my favorites in Mario Party 2.  You are standing on a 
ball, and what you have to do is knock your opponents off the edge of the ice, 
island, or bricks, depending on which scene you are at.  Be the last one 
standing and you win the game!

-Lava Tile Isle-
In this game you are standing on blocks, 2 blocks will rumble about every 2 
seconds, knock your opponents into the lava, and watch out, if you are standing 
on a rumbling blick, either move off of it onto another block, or move with it.  
Again, be the last one standing and you win the game!

you win the game!

number closest to the right amount and you win the game!
