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


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


The player that has the hammer can break the Brick Blocks with one blow, but that player is slower than the other players. The three other players either have to break the sturdy blocks containing Coins by themselves or have to punch 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 60 seconds are over or the blocks have all been smashed and the Coins collected, each player gets the number of Coins that they got in the minigame.
