Mole Thrill is a 2-vs.-2 minigame from Mario Party DS. The name is a pun on "molehill," the term used to describe a mound of earth created by a mole's burrowing actions.


The teams must dig to the finish with a Monty Mole following them. The Monty Mole does not serve as an obstacle, since it stops when the players stop. On each team, the two players dig upwards if the upper player digs faster, and vice versa. Rocks appear as obstacles throughout the minigame and try to slow the players down. The first team to reach the finish wins.


  • A Button – Press rapidly to dig

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules"You and your partner must dig to the finish first, while staying ahead of Monty Mole. You'll dig upward if the upper player digs faster...and vice versa!"
  • Tips"Don't get caught behind rocks. To rise above them, the top player should dig faster. To go under them, the lower player should dig faster."
