Mazed & Confused is a 4-player minigame found in Mario Party 5. Its name comes from the term "dazed and confused", which comes from a song made famous by Led Zeppelin in the 1960s and which was later used as the title of a film in 1993.

Players start at the corners of a rectangular maze; the goal is to make it to the center. However, there are pegs throughout the maze creating a grid. Electrical barriers appear and change frequently, meaning players have to find away around them. If a player touches the electric barrier, he or she is stunned for a moment. The first player to reach the center of the maze wins. The color trail is character-dependent (e.g. Mario's is red, Peach's is pink, and Waluigi's is black).

In-game text[edit]
