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 Control Stick was tilted in a direction determines the player's hiding spot. The solo 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 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 decreases. If the solo player seeks all of the team players in their hiding spots within three rounds, the solo player wins. If any of the team players survived from being caught by the solo player after the third round, the team players win.
