The game takes place at a construction site. The view is split in four, one for each player, and each has a shape of a character. The characters get on their jackhammers and the game begins.
Players have to cut the fossilized characters as accurately as possible. In Mario Party, the shapes are Goombas, Bob-ombs, and Boos. Any player who gets at least 80 points successfully cuts out the shape and wins the minigame.
In both games, if a character completely skews away from the shape they will be stopped and essentially eliminated until the time runs out.
After all characters have finished, the percentages are added up. The ground crumbles, and the cut shapes will open releasing the characters. Any character who cut the shape perfectly releasing the character will do a winning pose.
