Fireplace Race is a Co-op minigame appearing in Super Mario Party.


In this minigame, the players are holding candles while in a dark room. They must light all 30 of the candles in the dark room while evading Swoops that transport all players they catch back to the start. The game ends once time runs out (resulting in a C-Rank) or once all candles are lit.

On the Challenge Road, this is the fourth challenge of Chestnut Forest and the 14th challenge overall. The goal is to finish in 25 seconds for the normal challenge and 20 seconds for the Master Challenge.
