Jump the Gun is a 2-vs.-2 minigame found in Mario Party 6. Its name comes from the phrase "jump the gun," which refers to when a person does something prematurely.

There are only aesthetic differences between daytime and nighttime.


The player mounting the cannon fires a Bullet Bill into the first target. The other player then jumps onto it.


One character on each team controls a cannon that shoots out Bullet Bills. The other character then has to use those Bullet Bills as small platforms to get to the finish line. Players can shoot a Bullet Bill at only one of the targets and may shoot only one at a time. If the other player falls off the stage, a Lakitu hauls them back onto the last Bullet Bill they stood upon. The player who reaches the goal point first wins for their team.


The winners perform their victory animations at the goal point.
