The objective for each player is to knock all the others off the iceberg. The Lakitu floating above drops Buzzy Beetles onto the ice; bumping into them knocks players back, and their shells can also be kicked at other players to try to knock them off. The players can also jump on, punch, and kick their opponents to stun them temporarily. If a player falls off the iceberg, they are eliminated. The last player remaining wins. If all four players fall off the iceberg, the last player to fall off will win the minigame. If five minutes pass before three players fall off, the remaining players win and split a majority of the coins in the pot.
The last player standing celebrates in front of three penguins on the iceberg while the other three players sulk on another iceberg farther away. If the last player standing falls into the water, they will celebrate on the farther iceberg, next to the other three players that lost; this makes their voice harder to hear at that distance. If five minutes pass without three players falling off, the remaining players will celebrate while the other players are on the distant iceberg.
