Cannonball Fun is a 4-Player minigame in Mario Party 6. The name is a reference to Cannonball Run, the name of a few related movies.

The only difference between the day and night versions of this minigame is the decorations on the side of the arena; during the day, the decorations resemble suns, and at night, they are partially lit up to appear as moons.

Introduction[edit]

The first player flies around the arena in their hovercraft and comes to a stop before the camera zooms to the angle seen in the minigame and the screen splits in four.

Gameplay[edit]

Players pilot hovercrafts around an arena, firing cannonballs at each other. When a player hits an opponent, that player earns a point. When a player is hit, that player is stunned for a moment. The first player to obtain five points wins.

Ending[edit]
