Nothing to Luge is a 1-vs.-3 minigame from Mario Party DS. Its name is a pun on the phrase "nothing to lose".


This minigame take place at a snowy hill in the mountains. The solo player is in a wooden spoon while the other three players are in a wooden shoe. The objective of the game is to get to the bottom of the hill first. The controls are the L Button and R Button buttons to turn left or right in that way down the slopes.

If the solo player successfully reaches the bottom of the hill, they will win the minigame, but if the other three do so, they win. However, if both the solo player and the team reach the bottom of the hill at the same time or if five minutes pass, the minigame ends in a tie.

This minigame is not listed in the Simple Set in the Gallery.


  • L Button – Turn left
  • R Button – Turn right
