Big Blowout is a 4-player and duel minigame in Mario Party DS. This minigame involves players blowing on the Nintendo DS mic in order to blow out lit flames.

Gameplay[edit]

Each player stands in front of their own row of lit candles. To advance, players must blow on the system's microphone; this will in turn blow out candles.

The more air the player blows, the more flames extinguished at a given time. Maximum numbers of candles that can be blown out at a given time is three. However, players cannot use the mic while they are jumping from candle tip to candle tip - only when they stop. The player to extinguish all their candles and cross the finish line first wins.

Ending[edit]

At the end of the game, the winner is seen performing their victory animation in front of a bunch of lit candles. The losing players are not seen.

Controls[edit]

  • Microphone – Blow out the candles

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules"Race to the finish by running along the tips of candles. Blow them out to clear the way."
  • Tips"How many candles go dark depends on how long and hard you blow into the Mic. Try to blow out as many as you can to clear a long path."
