Bash 'n' Cash is a 1-vs-3 minigame in Mario Party.

Introduction[edit]

The minigame takes place inside a small tower. The opening scene shows the gate being locked, and the three team players surround the player in the Bowser Suit.

Gameplay[edit]

The solo player in the Bowser Suit must evade the other three players and avoid their hammer strikes for 30 seconds. Each hit robs the solo player of a Coin Bag (or a Coin if they have four or fewer Coins). The solo player can then attempt to reclaim the Coin Bag before another player gets it. The solo player can avoid being hit by hammers by jumping on the other players, while team members can spread out to limit movement for the solo player. Any Coins lost by the solo player are subtracted in the final Coin count. The minigame ends when 30 seconds pass or when the solo player loses all of their Coins.

In Bowser's minigame version, the Coins that the team of three knocks from the player in the Bowser Suit disappear so that nobody can collect them. If the player in the Bowser Suit manages to avoid losing any Coins, Bowser takes 15 Coins away from them.

On Mini-Game Island, the player starts with 20 Coins. The player's objective is to survive for 30 seconds without losing all their Coins. If they do so, they clear the minigame and earn the number of Coins they have left.

Trivia[edit]

  • This minigame appears to be set in the same area as the original Mario Party's versions of Grab Bag and Hot Bob-omb. It is also the only one of the three that did not return for Mario Party 2.
