Goomba's Chip Flip is a Story minigame in Mario Party 4. It can be played only by two players. In Story Mode, the player plays against Goomba in this minigame.


20 chips are placed onto a playing field facedown. Players ground-pound the chips to reveal point values underneath. Two chips have a value of 20 points, five chips have a point value of ten, five chips are worth five points each, and five chips are worth three points each. The other three chips have a negative point value of either five or ten. The point values are then added to or subtracted from the player's score, depending on whether the chip has a positive or negative point value. The first player to reach 50 points wins.
