Mr. Blizzard's Brigade is a four-player minigame from Mario Party 4. The minigame takes place on a small, frozen pond within a snowy forest.

Gameplay[edit]

Before the mini-game starts, a snowball rolls down the hill and stops at an icy pond with the four players on it. Two smaller snowballs also roll into view and then three head onto each snowball, forming them into Mr. Blizzards. The characters react in surprise, and the minigame starts.

The objective is for the characters to move around the ice pond, avoiding the snowballs thrown by the Mr. Blizzards. A few seconds before throwing a snowball, a Mr. Blizzard faces a certain direction, which gives the characters a short chance to avoid that direction before the Mr. Blizzard throws a snowball. If a character is hit by a snowball, they freeze into a block of ice for the rest of the mini-game and lose. Over time, more small Mr. Blizzards gather around the frozen pond, and the characters have to avoid more snowballs at a time. Sometimes the large Mr. Blizzard throws a huge snowball.

The last character standing is the winner, although more than one can win if they escape all the snowballs within the time limit. For the end results, the winners perform their victory pose on the ice pond.

Trivia[edit]

  • In Mario Party 6, the 1-vs.-3 minigame Snow Brawl has similar gameplay, but the main difference is that the characters throw snowballs instead of Mr. Blizzards.
  • In Mario Party 9, during the minigame Snow Go, Mr. Blizzards also throw snowballs at players.
