Skewer Scurry is a 1-vs.-Rivals/3 minigame appearing in Mario Party 10 and Mario Party Superstars.


The players are in an enclosed room with 16 Skewers, four at each direction. The solo player's goal is to eliminate their rivals by pressing the direction they want the Skewers to move in, while the rivals try to avoid the Skewers as they move slowly. Any rival who touches a Skewer gets eliminated. If the solo player manages to eliminate all the rivals within 20 seconds, the solo player will win. If at least one rival survives for the entire 20 seconds, the rivals will win.

In Mario Party Superstars, the lighting is slightly darker.
