Puddle Paddle is a 2-vs-2 coin-collecting minigame found in Mario Party 3 and Mario Party Superstars.


The game takes place in a crystal cave with a little lake with a tiny island in the center. Teams on rafts attempt to collect coins and coin bags from the Hammer Bro on the island in the center. A team must work together to row its raft. If one of the teams gets hit by a hammer, that team is unable to collect coins for a bit. When the timer runs out, the teams get to keep whatever number of coins they got during the game, and the coins are added to their coin totals.


Teams that collected more than one coin hop in place on their rafts while holding on to their oars as the Hammer Bro shakes his head. If a team collected no coins, that team sags in dismay.
