“Welcome to Battle Cup! In Battle Cup, you'll play five preselected minigames in order... And whoever wins the most of them is the victor!”
Battle Cup is a minigame competition in the Minigame Mode of Mario Party DS. Four players are required to play. The objective is to win as much of the Cup Course, a collage of five consecutive minigames that the human player either selects manually or lets the game choose five randomly, as possible. Despite only 4-player and Battle minigames being playable in this contest, multiple victors are allowed at the end of each minigame, however, ties between all four players will result in no one getting the minigame win. If multiple players end up winning the most minigames at the end of the Cup Course, the players will roll Dice Blocks to decide who's the real winner, the highest roller being declared the winner.
"Choose a specific minigame course, then battle to come out ahead!"
