Garden of Eatin' (Blooming Nuisance in British English) is a General luck-based minigame from Mario Party: Island Tour. The American English 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 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.


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 bites them and launches them away. The game continues until one player is left standing, with that player winning the game.

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