Fowl Play is a Duel minigame found in Mario Party 3. The name is derived from the term "foul play" and the term "fowl," which refers to the chickens involved in the minigame.


In this minigame, players must follow the chicken's tracks and catch it in 60 seconds. If one of the players gets too close to the chicken, it tries to run away. The first player who catches the chicken wins. If neither player catches the chicken within the time limit, the minigame ends in a draw.
