Quickest Cricket (Grasshopalong in the British English version) is a General minigame from Mario Party: Island Tour. The British name is a portmanteau of "grasshopper" and "hop along."


The players hop around three times on their crickets/grasshoppers.


The players must race each other to the finish line mounting mechanical crickets/grasshoppers, whilst avoiding rocks, Piranha Plants, and Wigglers. The first player to get to the goal wins.

This game is also available in Time Attack. The bonus objective is achieved by not hitting obstacles.
