Crank to Rank is a 4-player minigame in Mario Party 8 and returns in Mario Party: The Top 100.

Introduction[edit]

Four players are seen standing in front of Princess Peach's Castle (which looks like a smaller version of the castle in Super Mario 64). They all run over to their respective flagpoles nearby, and stand in front of them, with their hands on the wheel.

Gameplay[edit]

The four players must crank their flagpole by swinging the Wii Remote in circles. The first one to get the flag up to the top is the winner.

Ending[edit]

Fireworks explode behind the castle, and the winning player performs their respective victory pose while losing players sulk. There is a separate victory screen in The Top 100.
