Shuffleboard Showdown is a 1-vs.-3 minigame in Mario Party DS. Along with Chips and Dips, this minigame was removed in the Korean release, likely because of the gambling themes present in this minigame.

Gameplay[edit]

The goal is that the solo player throws chips at the other three players using the touch screen.

If one of the three touches one, the player that was touched will be knocked off the screen. If all three are off the screen, the minigame ends and the one who threw the chips wins; if there is still at least one of the three players standing, the three win. A chip can also bounce on walls and other chips. At about ten seconds before the game ends, chips begin to fall and drop on the board. These chips do not slide anywhere but any chip can move it.

In-game text[edit]

Solo (1 player)[edit]

  • Rules"Trip up your opponents by throwing chips at them. Chips will rebound from walls or other chips, so take advantage of that for surprise attacks."
  • Tips"Bank your shot off walls and other chips to catch your opponents off guard."

Group (3 players)[edit]

  • Rules"Avoid getting hit by chips. Watch them carefully, because they'll rebound from walls and other chips. If even one of you survives, you'll all win."
  • Tips"In the last few moments, watch for chips that fall from above. They'll cast shadows on the table, so steer clear of those spots."
