Two players shoot two normal berries that start to fall to the ground as the two catchers come in and bump into each other.


The goal of the minigame is to catch the berries that fall from the big berry tree. One player is in charge of "shooting" the berries, making them fall. The other player has to run to the falling berries to try to catch them before they hit the ground. Normal berries are worth one point, and golden berries are worth three points. The player should be careful not to catch dark berries, as they stun the player temporarily. The team with more points at the end of the minigame wins.

The minigame's background features a classical Super Mario landscape, with green hills, a blue sky, and a few moving clouds. The berry tree located in the middle is the main attraction. During gameplay, the scene changes from day to night.


The tree is filled with shiny golden berries as the winning teammates do their winning poses while the losing teammates do their losing poses. If the minigame ends in a tie, both teams do their losing poses.
