Fruit Talktail is a 1-vs.-3 Mic minigame in Mario Party 6. Its name is a pun on the dessert fruit cocktail. This minigame is similar to a 1-vs.-3 version of the classic Mario Party minigame Mushroom Mix-Up and its Mario Party 2 counterpart, Hexagon Heat.


For the single player[edit]

The goal is to make the other three players fall off the platforms and fail. The player must speak commands into the microphone. If a command is spoken correctly, all platforms other than those with the mentioned picture will collapse; if there are any opposing players on the other platforms, they will fall and be eliminated from the minigame.

For the three players[edit]

The goal is to stay on the platforms without falling off. Once a player falls off, they lose. If a player is standing on a platform that is preparing to collapse, they must move to a fruit platform that is not preparing to collapse in order to stay in the game.
