Breakneck Building is a Duel minigame in Mario Party 8.

Introduction[edit]

The camera zooms across a small construction site, before finally coming to rest on the first player. The screen will split to show both players, and the minigame will begin.

Gameplay[edit]

The minigame involves three tasks, each one requiring the player to use the Wii Remote in a different way.

First, players encounter a log, which they must saw in half by swinging the Wii Remote back and forth. Clearing this round, the characters will jump over the sawed log and move on to the next section. There is a hammer and a table with two nails sticking out of it. The players must swing the Wii Remote vertically to pound the two nails down into the table completely. The competitors will then advance to the final section, where there is a wood board on a stand. Now holding a paintbrush, they must completely cover the wood with paint.

Whoever is able to complete all three sections first is the winner.

Ending[edit]

The winning player will run along a short walkway and stop in the middle of a circular stage at the end, where they will do their victory pose with a log cabin behind them.
