Duct & Cover is an 8-Player minigame from Mario Party 7. Its name is a pun on "duck and cover."


In this minigame, the players must fix six leaks in their teams' ducts. This is done by repeatedly pressing the buttons that appear over the players' heads. The team that fixes its duct first wins. Only the character on the right plays their winning voice clip.

Compared to other 8-Player minigames in Mario Party 7, this one is unique in that all of the controller's buttons are used by either teammate.


  • Control Stick / C Stick – Move
