Crowd Cover is an duel minigame found in Mario Party 3. Its name is a pun on the phrase "cloud cover".


The two competitors are seen in front of the drawing paper, with various characters standing on a massive sheet of paper.


Players have to choose between three small pictures, and match it with the the larger picture in front of them. The larger drawing is covered by characters that are the same species as the drawing. As time passes, the crowd on the paper decreases in size, allowing players to see better. If one player chooses incorrectly, the other player wins. The picture can be of a Boo, Toad, or Bob-omb. The minigame ends when one player chooses which of the drawings they believe is correct.


As soon as the minigame is finished, it is revealed whether the player chose correctly. The players then perform their victory and loss animations.
