Chump Rope is a 1-vs.-3 minigame in Mario Party 8. Its name is a pun on "jump rope."


Introduction[edit]

The solo player turns a rope with a Shy Guy, and three Goombas jump on it. The Goombas leave, and they are replaced by the trio one by one. The rope stops moving and the game begins.

Gameplay[edit]

The solo player must swing the rope to topple the trio within the time limit of fifteen seconds. The trio must jump until the timer runs out.

Ending[edit]

The solo player beating the three remaining players

If the solo player wins, they perform their victory pose, while behind them the three players are jumping a rope controlled by two Shy Guys, trying to avoid being tripped. If the trio wins, it is the opposite; they perform their victory poses while the solo player jumps the rope instead.

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules: "One player swings a jump rope for 15 seconds, trying to trip up three jumpers!"
  • Hint: "Controlling the rope? Change up your swing speed! Trying to survive? Pay attention to the speed!"
