Mario Party: The Top 100:

Hexagon Heat is a 4-Player minigame found in Mario Party 2 and Mario Party: The Top 100. The premise and ruleset of this minigame are similar to those of Mushroom Mix-Up from the first Mario Party, with lava in place of water.


The players stand on the white hexagon in the center of a pit of lava. The other six hexagon platforms then show up and join around it, and the minigame begins.


When Toad raises a colored flag, all the players must go to the hexagons with the same color; all the other hexagons slowly sink into the lava. Players can also jump on their opponents to slow them down, or ground-pound them to squish them flat and stop them altogether, at the risk of being eliminated themselves. As the minigame progresses, the hexagons fall and rise faster. The last player standing wins. Unlike in Mushroom Mix-Up, the hexagons lack the Mushroom Platforms' polka-dot patterns from that minigame.

The hexagons' order is always as follows, from top left to bottom right: yellow, red, cyan, white (where the players start), green, blue, pink.

In Mario Party: The Top 100, the order of the colors of the hexagons (referred to as panels in this game) has been changed, and in addition, there are shapes imprinted on them. This is the panels' order in this game, from top left to bottom right: blue vertical rectangle, green triangle, pink square, white circle (where the players start), cyan diamond, yellow upside-down triangle, red horizontal rectangle. Additionally, players no longer recoil from ground-pounding other players.

The music speeds up as the minigame progresses, a trait that does not carry over to the Mario Party: The Top 100 version.
