Pyramid Scheme is a 2-vs.-2 minigame found in Mario Party 7. The term "pyramid scheme" refers to an illegal investment scam.


Coins are released from a golden jar. The camera moves to the gameplay area, and the coins fall onto the ground.


Both teams try to collect coins falling from the ceiling. Sometimes bags that are full of coins fall from the ceiling. The goal of the game is to collect as many coins as the pairings can as soon as possible. As with all coin minigames, players get awarded the coins they have collected at the end. The only way for one to lose this game is not to collect any coins.


  • Control Stick – Move

In-game text[edit]
