Domination is a four-player minigames in Mario Party 4. Its name is a pun on "domination", (having control over something else), and dominoes. If the player is able to knock down 100 Whomps or more, they will unlock the Goomba Clock in the Present Room.


The camera pans down a long row of Whomps, stopping on the four players. The Whomps then disappear into the ground as the game starts.


The goal is to set up the most Whomps, which act as dominoes. Each character wields a mallet and a switch. Each time the switch is hit, a Whomp is set up. When the time is up, the character knocks over the Whomps. The character with the most Whomps knocked over wins.


The players punch the Whomps, knocking them over like dominoes. After all are knocked over, at least one more Whomp appears in front of the winning line, holding a flag, with the winner(s) on top. The winner(s) do(es) a victory pose.
