End of the Line
End of the Line is a Duel minigame in Mario Party 3. Its name refers to a term used for the end point of a railroad system, which in turn is derived from a phrase used for final cessation of a process.
Somewhere in a desert, the players are standing on a railroad track and are startled when they turn around and see Steamer coming towards them, whistling. With no time for the players to react, Steamer then runs over them, knocking them onto a moving platform behind it. The minigame then begins.
The minigame begins with Steamer running into the players and bringing them onto its tender. They must navigate it back to the station. They are given a choice of two tunnels at a set of points to enter. Choosing an incorrect tunnel will cause the player to fall off a cliff and return to the start of the course. The first player to choose the correct tunnel at each of three junctions and arrive at the station with Steamer wins. If both players arrive at the station at the same time or if five minutes pass, the minigame will end in a draw.
When the winner comes out of the last true tunnel, Steamer brings them to the station, where they strike a victory pose.
