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.


A blue Toad and yellow Toad are seen watering plants. While the blue Toad's plant bears a flower, the yellow Toad receives a Piranha Plant, and he gets bitten shortly after. After a fade-out, the next scene shows the player characters holding watering cans as the minigame starts.


Players have to choose one of several plants to water within a 10 second time window, with each plant moving about in different fashions before watering. If a player has not made a selection before the time runs out, they will automatically choose a plant. After everyone has made their selection, they all water their plants. If the end result is a flower, those players stay in the game for the next round. If the end result is a Piranha Plant, it bites the affected players and launches them away. The game continues in a similar fashion until one player is left standing, with that player winning the game. The more rounds that are passed, the fewer plants become available to potentially water.

If this minigame is played in Bowser's Tower, the game only lasts two rounds. If the player survives the second round, even if at least one bubble clone also gets past two rounds, they will still continue to the next floor regardless.
