Hide and Sneak is a 1-vs-3 Minigame found in Mario Party 3. Hide and Sneak is a pun on the game Hide and Seek.


Three players must attempt to hide behind one of the four hiding places (a rock, a tree stump, a bush and a mushroom house) while the curtain is still open. The last time the Control Stick was tilted to a direction determines the player's hiding spot. The other player must guess one of the other three players' hiding places. If the solo player finds one of the players in that hiding spot, that player is eliminated. In addition, if a player does not tilt the Control Stick at all during the hiding phase, that player is automatically eliminated.

At the end of each round, the selected hiding spot is used up, and the remaining players in the trio then select a direction to hide from the remaining hiding spots. The players should be careful as the number of hiding spots decrease. If the solo player seeks all the three players in their hiding spots within 3 rounds, the solo player wins. But if any of the three players survived from being caught by the solo player after the 3rd round, the three players win.
