Dust 'til Dawn is a 1-vs.-3 minigame featured in Mario Party 6. Its title is a pun on the phrase "dusk 'til dawn."

A page in the Miracle Book called "Spring Cleaning" features this minigame with Boo and Koopa Kid cleaning the house. Activating the page reveals Donkey Kong emerging from the dust cloud. Additional differences include the picture of Brighton changing to Twila, a Koopa Troopa looking through the window, and the TV getting a clear picture of Peach's Castle.

There are only aesthetic differences between day and night.


All the players run into a house. The solo player runs into the room they must clean, and the team players remain in their current room.


Players have to clean the dust off all the dust-covered items in each of their rooms. The team players have a much bigger room with more household objects to clean, while the lone player has a smaller room with only a few different items to dust. Many of these items are things such as chairs, tables, and even a piano. The side that completely dusts its room first wins. If five minutes pass, the minigame ends in a tie.


If the solo player wins, the camera zooms in on their room, and they perform their victory animation; this is the same for the team of three.
