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 leaks in their team's duct. This is done by repeatedly pressing the button that appears over the players' heads. The team that fixes their duct first wins.

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