Maths of Glory is a 2-vs.-2 minigame in Super Mario Party. Its name is a reference to the 1957 American film Paths of Glory.


The camera pans left and right to show both teams, who are eager to battle against each other. The minigame then begins.


The minigame takes place near a river and place consisting solely of jigsaw pieces. Using multiplication, each team must combine its numbers to destroy the opposing castle within five rounds. Both castles have 50 jigsaw pieces each. To destroy the castles, players hit slots with numbers ranging from one to six, with 36 being the highest number a team can get. The numbers on the slots are then multiplied for the cannons to fire the specified number of cannonballs at the castle. For human players, the number they hit always matches the number shown in the slot right before they hit it, but computer players instead hit a random number that does not necessarily match the number they stop on. The number six on the slot is red so that the players can attempt to hit it. The team to demolish the opposing team's castle entirely, or the team with more jigsaw pieces after five rounds, wins. If both teams' castles are completely destroyed in the same round, the minigame ends in a tie.

On the Challenge Road, this is the fifth challenge of Mushroom Beach and the 26th challenge overall. The player team must destroy its rivals' castle within three rounds for the normal challenge and two rounds for the Master Challenge. The computer player chosen to pair with the (human) player always hits a 5 or 6, which may not necessarily match the number shown in the square right before they hit it.

In-game text[edit]
