Type Duel mini-game

Chicken! is a duel minigame found in Mario Party Advance. Its name refers to the real-life game of Chicken, a game that involves lasting for as long as possible without yielding to another player.

In Shroom City, this game is played against Mouser, when the player arrives at the third and final floor of Duel Tower.


Both players move out of the way as the Thwomp slams to the ground between them.


Both players try to stay under the Thwomp for as long as they can, but must also avoid being squished by it. Both players can tell how far Thwomp has fallen by how large the shadow that appears in the center of the tower is. The players can attempt to fake the opponent out by walking out of the shadow and going back in. If one player flees, the other has a chance to get out to win. Victory goes to whoever is not flattened by Thwomp or is the one who stays under longer. If both players are flattened, then the match is a draw.


  • A Button – Flee
  • B Button – Fake out
