Goomba Gotcha (Herd Watching in the British English version) is a Free-for-All minigame appearing in Mario Party 10. The British name is a pun on both "herd" and "birdwatching."


Players have to select as many Goombas, Galoombas, or Goombrats as possible. Before the game begins, the enemy that should be selected in the game is chosen randomly. Each time a player picks the right enemy, they earn a point. Should a player choose a wrong enemy, they lose a point. The player with the most points in the end wins.


  • Wii Remote − Move cursor
