Making Faces is a 2-vs.-2 minigame appearing in Super Mario Party. Its name is based on a phrase referring to making distorted or humorous expressions at someone.


Both players on the first team move the mouth of a character to the correct position. The screen fades out and then back in to show both teams and faces without features. The minigame then starts.


The minigame is set in a factory-esque area. Mario or Bowser appears in this minigame as the face image on the base, with one of the two being randomly chosen. Teams must step on buttons to drop three facial features of 2D vector character illustrations onto the base image in order to replicate that character as much as possible. One team member controls horizontal movement, while the other controls vertical movement. Each facial feature is placed down ten seconds after it appears, and players can use the shadow on the base as a visual cue. After all three parts are placed down, both teams are given percentages based on their accuracy, and the team with the greater percentage wins.

On the Challenge Road, this is the 13th minigame in End of the Road and the 76th minigame overall. For the normal challenge, the player needs 80 percent accuracy to win. For the Master Challenge, they must get 90 percent.


  • Control Stick – Step on buttons (Up/Down or Left/Right)
