Block Star is a rare minigame in Mario Party 6 that also appears in Mario Party DS. It also appears for a third time in Mario Party: The Top 100. Its name is a portmanteau of rock star and block.

Gameplay[edit]

Block Star's gameplay is similar to that of Tetris Attack. A stack of square panels rises from the bottom of the screen, and the player must make three or more panels of the same color touch to clear them. In order to clear each level, the player must clear all of the blocks with stars on them in each level. The game ends if the stack reaches the top of the screen. This minigame is one of the three single player minigames in Mario Party 6 and is unique in this category in having a two-player mode. In the Mario Party DS version, a Mario Party Point is earned for every ten points earned in the game.
