Pyramid Scheme is a 2-vs.-2 coin-collecting 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 contain five coins fall from the ceiling. The goal of the minigame is to collect as many coins as the teams can as soon as possible. The teams can watch the shadows to determine where the coins and coin bags will fall. As with all other coin minigames, players get awarded the coins they have collected at the end. The only way for one to lose this minigame is not to collect any coins.

In-game text[edit]
