Buddy Bounce is a Free-for-All minigame featured in Mario Party 9.


Players bounce on the Bouncy Clouds at varying intervals as the balloons appear.


Players must try to pop balloons by coming in contact with them to score points. The lowest row has balloons which are worth one point, the middle row has balloons which are worth three points, and the top row has balloons which are worth 10 points. The top row can only be reached by bouncing on another player. Balloons will reappear five to seven seconds after being popped. After 30 seconds, the player with the highest score wins.
