Ball Dozers is a 1-vs.-3 minigame in Mario Party 6. Its name is a pun on "bulldozers," a type of construction vehicle.


The view changes from the bottom of the area to the top. The players then emerge from the sides of the screen, and the minigame begins as the balls roll into the arena from Warp Pipes.


The players must use their hammers to smash the pegs impeding their balls' progress and allow them to roll to the bottom of the pinball machine-like area. The team players have a much bigger blue ball, while the solo player has a much smaller orange ball. The side whose ball reaches the bottom first wins.


The victor's/victors' ball rolls down the pipe at the bottom of the area. The winner(s) then perform(s) their victory animation(s) in the center of the area.
