Crazy Cogs is a 1-vs-3 minigame found in Mario Party 3.


The game takes place in an engine room with various nails and cogs spinning all over the place. The room contains three different-colored cogs with a Bullet Bill imprinted on each. There is also a pink platform near the cogs, which rotates them in different directions. The solo player, who controls the large cog, has to make the other three players get hit by Bullet Bills, while the other three players on the large cog have to avoid being hit by Bullet Bills. If the solo player makes all three team players get hit by Bullet Bills, that player wins. If even one player on the team avoids being hit by Bullet Bills for 30 seconds, the team players win.
