Mallet-Go-Round is an Item minigame found in Mystery Land in Mario Party 2. Its name is a pun on "merry-go-round," a type of carnival or amusement park ride.


The player attempts to use a hammer to knock two blocks down on a roulette to get the item they desire. Each time the player knocks down a block, the remaining blocks on the roulette change direction and spin faster. If the player knocks down Baby Bowser's block, they get nothing. If the player loses by running out of time, the roulette simply stops.


  • A Button – Swing hammer
