Hexagon Heat is a 4-Player minigame found in Mario Party 2 and Mario Party: The Top 100. Its gameplay is identical to that of Mushroom Mix-Up from the first Mario Party.


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


When Toad raises a colored flag, all the players must go to the hexagon tile with the same color; all the other hexagon tiles 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 game progresses, the hexagons fall and rise faster. The last player standing wins.

This is always the hexagons' order, from top left to bottom right: yellow, red, light blue, white (where the players start), green, dark blue, pink.

In Mario Party: The Top 100, the colors and order of the colors of the hexagons have been changed, and in addition, there are shapes imprinted on them, most likely to assist those who are colorblind. This is the hexagons' order in this game, from top left to bottom right: dark-blue vertical rectangle, green triangle, purple square, pink circle (where the players start), light-blue diamond, yellow upside-down triangle, red horizontal rectangle. Additionally, players no longer recoil from ground-pounding other players.
