M.P.I.Q. is a 4-player minigame found in the Nintendo 64 game Mario Party 3.

Gameplay[edit]

Players have to listen to Toad when he is asking a question based on the activities on the board, players or anything related.

The first player to answer three questions correctly wins. First, Toad will slowly show the question letter by letter. A player must press A Button to hit the buzzer and answer the question, and players can hit the buzzer before the question is fully revealed. An "O" means the answer is correct and an "X" means the answer is incorrect. If an answer is incorrect, the player who answered the question gets squashed by a block and loses his or her next turn. Players are also squashed if a question is not answered within five seconds.

If no one answers three questions correctly after ten questions, the minigame ends. If multiple players have the highest score, a draw occurs.
