Block and Load is a 1-vs.-3 minigame appearing in Super Mario Party. The name is a pun on "lock and load," a slang term that means a command to prepare a weapon for battle.


In this minigame, the solo player and team each must demolish a single block tower. The team players have individual cannons that fire small cannonballs, while the solo player has one big cannon that fires much larger cannonballs at the cost of having to wait periodically for the cannon to cool down. The first side to demolish its block tower wins.


  • Control Stick – Move cursor
  • Single Joy-Con Right Button – Fire cannon

In-game description[edit]

  • Knock over all the blocks!
  • The solo player's cannon needs to cool down before it can fire again.
