Shell Game (minigame)
Shell Game is a 1-Player minigame found in Mario Party. Its name alludes to the shell game, upon which this minigame is based. This minigame shares its setting with Knock Block Tower, taking place on top of a castle tower.
The object of this minigame is to watch the Koopa Troopa with the Treasure Chest and pick the same one after the shells have shuffled. There is a total of four Koopa Troopas, each one identical to each other. If the player picks the wrong Koopa Troopa, five Coins are lost as a result from losing the minigame. The game rewards the player with ten Coins if the minigame is won.
If the player picks the right shell, the Coins fly toward them, and the player does a winning pose. If not, the correct Koopa will open its chest with the Coins falling off the tower. The player slumps in disappointment.
