Fungi Frenzy is a Free-for-All minigame featured in Mario Party 9.


The players run into the first field of 9 panels arranged in a 3x3 grid.


Players try to earn the highest score by ground-pounding panels with Mushrooms in them. Before each of the three rounds, the panels will very briefly show what they contain. Points in this game are solely based off of the number of Mushrooms a player collects. Some panels will contain one Mushroom, others contain two, and the rest contain three. Players can also stun each other by ground-pounding them. After each round, the players run through a gate to the next field. After three rounds, the player with the highest score wins.
