Coin Block Bash is a 1-vs-3 player minigame found in Mario Party. It is similar to Coin Block Blitz.


The singular player swings the hammer twice. The camera then zooms out to the view used during the minigame.


The player that has a hammer can break the Brick Blocks with one blow, but is slower than the other players. The three other players either have to break the sturdy blocks containing coins by themselves or have to attack the player with the hammer to get the hammer. Without the hammer, blocks take exactly ten hits to destroy. The hammer user can also knock players away and stun them for a few seconds with a sideways blow, or squish them flat with a vertical blow. Only a vertical blow can be used to destroy the blocks. After the sixty seconds are over or the blocks have all been smashed and the coins collected, each player gets the amount of coins that they got in the game.
