Mario Party: The Top 100:

Jigsaw Jumble is a Free-for-All minigame featured in Mario Party 9 and Mario Party: The Top 100. Its name is a pun on "jigsaw puzzle."


The first puzzle is already in front of the player. The possible pieces to complete it then fall from above, after which the screen splits to show all players.


Players have to select the missing puzzle piece to complete puzzles, until all five puzzles are solved. For every round, the number of choices increases by one, starting with four. If the player places in an incorrect piece, it simply flies away. The puzzle pictures are a Bob-omb, Boo, Buzzy Beetle, Chain Chomp, Cheep Cheep, Fire Flower, Spiny, Green Shell, Mushroom, and Koopa Troopa (The Top 100). The first player to finish all five puzzles wins.

In Time Attack, the bonus objective is to complete five puzzles without trying to place in an incorrect piece.


The player who completes the puzzles fastest gets a golden frame for the last puzzle. Second place gets a silver frame, and third place gets a bronze frame. No frame is given to the player in last place whether or not they finish the last puzzle.
