Snow Way Out is a 1-vs.-3 minigame in Mario Party 8. Its name is a pun on "no way out".


The three players will pop out of the roof of a cottage (similar to the one seen at the end of the Mario Party 5 minigame Tube It or Lose It), on to the roof, in a background of snow, and trees with snow on them. The other player will drive in on a snow vehicle.


Results of the minigame

The one player is trying to make the three fall off, by shooting snowballs from the vehicle, and either hitting them directly to encase them in ice, or hitting the roof, making it slippery, thus making it easier for them to fall off. The other three are trying to survive until time runs out. The single player aims with the Wii Remote, and uses the A Button button to launch a snowball. The trio uses the +Control Pad to move, and the Two Button button to jump. If all three players fall off the roof or are frozen, the solo player wins. If at least one player survives until time runs out, the trio wins.


If the one player wins, then it will show him or her do the victory dance, while the other three are sitting next to him in the snow, dizzy. If the trio win, the one player is forced to retreat with a sad face as they do victory poses.
