Box Mountain Mayhem is a 4-player minigame that is found in the Nintendo 64 game Mario Party. Unlike other minigames, this minigame focuses on players freely collecting Coins instead of battling to win the minigame.


The objective of the minigame is to break the stacks of boxes to collect as many Coins as possible within the time limit of 30 seconds. Players can stun each other for a short time with different results. If the player is jumped on, the player is partially flattened and cannot punch. If the player is punched, the player is pushed back from a few feet. If the player is attacked with a Hip Drop, the player is flattened onto the ground and cannot move.

To make the minigame more interesting, "Whomp Blocks" hide in the piles of boxes. If one of the players hit a Whomp Block, the block reveals itself with the appearing worried face symbol as it bounces the player back a few feet from the boxes. They may contain some coins that are scattered around the room. Occasionally, one of the boxes contains a Coin Bag that is worth five coins. These items are also scattered around when the player breaks and reveals them in the open. The minigame ends when all boxes have been broken, or when time is up. There is no winner or loser.

The minigame can be purchased from the Mini-Game House for 200 Coins when it is available.
