Mario Party: The Top 100:

Pogo-a-Go-Go is a 1-vs.-3 minigame in Mario Party 7, Mario Party: The Top 100, and Mario Party Superstars. 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 a platform as the three team players on pogo sticks are dropped into the stage by helicopter. The holes then open as the team players 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 sizes to avoid elimination, which is complicated by the solo player's spinning the platform. If a team player falls into a hole, they will be eliminated. The solo player wins if they eliminate all their opponents. The team players win if at least one of them survives for 30 seconds.

Ending[edit]

The ending to Pogo-a-Go-Go if the solo player wins in Mario Party 7

In Mario Party 7 and Superstars, if the solo player wins, they celebrate as the other three are carried off by the helicopters. If the team players win, they celebrate their victory on the platform as the solo player sulks in disappointment inside the control panel.
