Panel Panic is a minigame found in the Extra Room of Mario Party 4.


The game is similar to Panels of Doom; however, nine players participate (all eight playable characters and Bowser). The game starts on a 3×3 grid with tiles numbered one through nine. The four controlled characters start on tiles one, three, seven, and nine, but they may pick another tile if they choose. The remaining uncontrolled characters then fill the remaining spaces. Everybody then hits a Dice Block. If any number comes up even once, that tile collapses, dropping the character standing on it. The players still in the game hit the Dice Blocks again, making more tiles collapse, and the cycle continues until only one player is left. In some cases, everyone may lose if each of the remaining numbers comes up.
