Diamond a Dozen (known as Diamond Drop in British English) is a General minigame from Mario Party: Island Tour. Its American English name is a pun on the phrase "dime a dozen", which describes something that is so common as to have very little value.


The camera pans to the bottom of the temple area with a statement that reads "Collect the most ♦'s!" in American English or "Collect ♦s!" in British English. Soon after, the camera moves upward and the players must attempt to keep track of which hole they think has the most diamonds. The players must then quickly hit the correct button of the hole that they think has the most diamonds. The player who collects the most diamonds wins.
