Kabob and Weave (known as Squish Kebab in the British English version) is a General minigame from Mario Party: Island Tour. The American name is a combination of the food "kabob", and the boxing term "bob and weave"; the British name is a pun on "shish kebab".


The four players and Blue Toad all enter a factory, and stop on a metal platform. An alarm goes off, and all of the characters are startled by the middle Skewer popping out of the wall. Blue Toad is knocked away while all the players dodge, and the minigame begins.


The players have to avoid being touched by the five Skewers in the background. If a player is touched by a Skewer, they are out. The last player left standing, or the players left standing when time runs out win.


  • Circle Pad – Move
  • A Button – Jump

  • In the minigame intro, the doors on the left and right side of the screen shut if four players are competing. If there are two or three, the doors don't shut, however, they still act like walls, even though there doesn't appear to be any.
