The game starts with all players in a pit. Suddenly, Bowser appears and throws a large Spiked Ball into it, which players have to avoid. If hit, a player reappears in a cage on the sidelines and becomes one of the losers. Eventually, the ball loses speed and stops. Bowser, infuriated, throws two more Spiked Balls into the pit. These new balls hit the first and cause it to start rolling again, and gameplay continues as before. Whoever survives until time runs out is the winner.
