Pogo-a-Go-Go is a 1-vs.-3 minigame that is found during the events of Mario Party 7. It reappears in Mario Party: The Top 100. The name is partly derived from the term "A-Go-Go" (from the French À gogo, meaning "galore").

Introduction[edit]

The camera zooms down onto the platform as the three players are dropped into the stage by helicopter. The holes then open as they begin bouncing and the minigame begins.

Gameplay[edit]

The solo player's objective is to eliminate the other players by moving the platform they are on, while the team players must survive for 30 seconds. The solo player can spin the platform clockwise or counterclockwise using the L Button and R Button buttons; the team players must navigate around holes of various size to avoid elimination, which is complicated by the solo player spinning the platform.

The three players' objective is to simply avoid going into the different-sized holes.

Ending[edit]
