Logger Heads is a Free-for-All minigame in Mario Party 9 and Mario Party: The Top 100. Its name is a pun on "loggerheads," a former term for stupid people.


The players approach the stump and lift their axes in preparation.


Players try to be the first to split the log that the Whittle puts on the trunk in half by quickly moving the Wii Remote. Occasionally, the Whittle may put a Bob-omb on the stump instead of a log, and players must press A Button to duck. Failing to do so or chopping the Bob-omb results in players being stunned for the next round. The first player to get three points wins, and the game will immediately end; this means that the other players will be ranked based on how many logs they have chopped.

In Perspective Mode, the player views the minigame from behind their character.

Like 10 to Win, Snow Go, and Pizza Me, Mario, this minigame ends when one player reaches the goal.
