Jigsaw Jumble is a Free-for-All minigame featured in Mario Party 9, and it returns in 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.


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 selects 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, and Mushroom.


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. If the player in last place manages to complete their puzzle immediately after the second-to-last player has finished theirs, the player in last will receive a green frame; otherwise, no frame will be given.
