The Red Mushroom House minigame
“Hit the ball three times, and win a prize! Only 30 coins per game!”
Toad, Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3

The Red Mushroom House[1] is a location in Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3. It is a red-colored Toad House that contains one of the special minigames found in World-e. The Toad House is unlocked after 50 Advance Coins are collected, making it unplayable in international versions prior to the Wii U Virtual Console release. The minigame costs 30 coins to play each time.


With a 30-second time limit, Mario or Luigi starts the minigame in a room where he has a red ball. The object is to throw the ball and make contact with a bubble hovering at the top of the screen. The ball turns yellow after being thrown once, turns blue after being thrown twice, and disappears after all three throws are used. During each throw, the ball is slower than before. It is possible for the ball to rebound and hit the bubble two or even three times in a single throw. If the ball hits the bubble three times, the player can get the contents of the bubble (a random item).

They cost 50 and 80 gold Coins respectively, but the prizes are much more impressive and rare. That's another reason to collect all future e-Reader cards!" – Hodgson, David S J. (October 21, 2003).
