Cointagious is a 4-Player coin-collecting minigame in Mario Party 7. Its name is a pun on the word "contagious."


The screen zooms in on the four players as four Dice Blocks appear.


In this minigame, the main goal is to collect as many coins as possible. For 20 seconds, the players hit Dice Blocks that roll from zero to three. The number that appears on a Dice Block when rolled is how many coins are received. There is no winner in this minigame, as, regardless of how many coins are received by the end of the minigame, everybody still walks away with something, unless a player did not get any coins at all.


After time is up, all the Dice Blocks disappear. All players who got coins do their victory animations. If a player does not get any coins, they will do their losing animation instead.
