Garden of Eatin' (known as Blooming Nuisance in PAL regions) is a General minigame from Mario Party: Island Tour. The name is a pun on the Garden of Eden.


Yellow Toad and Blue Toad are seen watering plants. While Blue Toad's plant bears a nice flower, Yellow Toad receives a Piranha Plant, and he gets bitten shortly after. Then the next scene shows the player characters holding watering cans. The minigame starts after this scene.


This minigame is a luck-based minigame. The player gets to choose a plant to water. If the result is a flower, the player goes to the next round. When the player gets a Piranha Plant, it will bite the player and send the player below so that he or she gets their rank based on the performance. The game will continue if there is no winner. The last player standing wins.

In Bowser's Tower, the game only lasts two rounds. If a bubble clone is still in, alongside the player at the end of the second round, the player will still continue to the next floor.
