Mario Party: The Top 100:

Official art of Wario holding a block in Button Mashers

Players must try to avoid getting crushed by the blocks falling from the sky. To do so, they must quickly and simultaneously press every button shown on each of the blocks they are carrying. If both players survive for a few seconds, another block will fall, requiring the players to press two buttons simultaneously. If both still survive, another block will fall, making a total of three, then four, five, and finally six. After that, the player who presses the buttons slower loses and gets crushed. However, if both players get crushed at the same time, then the minigame ends in a draw.


If a character gets crushed, the minigame ends.

The winner throws their blocks into the air and celebrates.
