Dream Snowball Fight
Dream Snowball Fight is a Dream Event that appears in the Wii version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. The objective of the event is to score more points than the opposing team by hitting them with snowballs, with the event taking place in Christmas Village.
This event is played with a tournament structure, where the player competes in a qualifying match, and goes on to compete in the final if they win or ends the event if they lose. In the event, the player can move around by pressing the direction they want to travel in on , and can double tap the direction quickly to perform a faster dodge in the direction. The player throws snowballs by swinging the Wii Remote, and can restock their snowballs by pressing , being able to hold a maximum of four at any one time. The player can lock onto standing players on the other team by holding , and can change targets by quickly pressing it. The player scores 1 point for hitting a character, and three points for knocking them down entirely by hitting them three times. If the player is hit three times, they must shake the Wii Remote to get back up, but points cannot be scored by hitting characters while they are still down. Bonus points can also be scored by entirely knocking down the opponent's snowman. Bullet Bills will also occasionally be shot into the area, and can be hit by snowballs to turn them around and target the opposition. If hit by a Bullet Bill, the character will be immediately knocked down regardless of how many hits they have taken so far, but can defend against them using a Super Star. The area also features Brick Blocks that the players can hide behind, though do not provide full protection from snowballs, and Item Boxes that can be collected to obtain items. Six items can be obtained and are used automatically when obtained, each with different effects:
At the end of each match, the team with the most points wins.
