Crate and Peril is a 1-vs.-3 minigame in Mario Party 6. It reappears in Mario Party: The Top 100. Its name is a pun on the retail store Crate & Barrel.


The solo player chases the group players into a room with a stage, sucking them into a box. The camera points inside the box as the minigame then starts.


The solo player's objective is to shake the box around and eliminate the group players by tilting the Spiny Shells into them. The group players must survive for 30 seconds with at least one of them remaining in order to win.


If the team wins, any players who are still standing perform their victory animations from within the box. If the solo player wins, they will stand on the stage and perform their victory animation. In The Top 100, the animations are instead performed on the results screen.
