Hammer Drop is a 4-Player coin-collecting minigame that is found in Mario Party and Mario Party Superstars. Unlike other minigames, this minigame involves collecting coins freely.


The minigame takes place on a stone tower surrounded by water and other stationary towers. The four players are positioned at their sides equally, as a Hammer Bro riding in a cloud appears in the center of the playfield. The minigame then begins.


The players have the opportunity to collect as many coins as possible within the time limit of 30 seconds. The Hammer Bro moves around the center of the tower, dropping various objects on the floor. Collectible objects include single coins and coin bags that are worth five coins. Dropped objects bounce towards the edge of the tower before disappearing forever, so the players must gather those coins and coin bags as quickly as they can within the limited space. The Hammer Bro can also throw out hammers to harm players. If a player gets hit by a hammer, they are stunned momentarily, causing the player to temporarily lose the ability to pick up the collectible objects. Falling off the tower does not let the player continue participating in the minigame, but they keep the coins they gathered before falling.

There is no winner or loser if the minigame ends when the time limit is up. All the players keep the number of coins they collected in the minigame regardless of whether they fell off the top of the tower or not. However, the minigame ends with a "Miss!" if every player falls off the tower before the minigame ends.

The minigame can be purchased from the Mini-Game House for 450 coins when it is available for purchase.

In Mario Party Superstars, if a player falls off the tower, they lose all of the money that they had collected. Additionally, coin bags are larger and more frequent. Characters also cheer whenever they collect a coin or coin bag.


The Hammer Bro vanishes, and players do their victory or losing animations depending on whether or not they collected coins. In Mario Party, if everyone is eliminated, the Hammer Bro continues flinging coins and hammers. If the same occurs in Mario Party Superstars, the Hammer Bro instead vanishes a while before the tie music plays.
