Hammer and Sic 'Em is a Team minigame appearing in Super Mario Party. Its name is a play on "hammer and sickle," commonly identified as the symbol of communism and the Soviet Union.


The minigame is set in a circular arena. Each team must pop the other's balloons by swinging their hammers onto the two opposing teammates with the balloons. Each team also comes with six additional teammates (including any encountered allies) that assist in popping the opposing balloons but themselves do not carry balloons. The first team to pop the other's balloons wins.
