Boonanza! is a Duel minigame found in Mario Party 6. This minigame's name is a pun on the word "bonanza."

The introduction shows the first player chasing a lone Pink Boo. It then quickly gets away, and many more Pink Boos pop out of the ground afterward.


The goal of this minigame is to round up as many Pink Boos as the duelers can into their pieces of land within the time allotted. When a player moves toward a Pink Boo, it moves away from the player, so they must move behind a group of Pink Boos to effectively control their direction. Whoever has more Pink Boos in their corral when time runs out wins. The result is a tie if both players have the same number of Pink Boos in their corrals.


Many Pink Boos pass behind the players, who do their respective animations. If both players have the same number of Pink Boos, they both perform their losing animations.


  • Control Stick – Move

In-game text[edit]
