Skipping Class is a Free-for-All minigame in Mario Party 9. Its name is a play on a common phrase used to refer to truancy and the fact that players use skipping ropes.


The camera zooms in slightly on the players as they jump rope in front of a fountain.


To earn points, the players must press the button combinations displayed onscreen before the time runs out to perform jump-rope tricks. The faster the buttons are pressed, the more points awarded. If a player presses the wrong button or does not press all the buttons displayed in time, they will not receive any points for that round. The player that earns the most points after eight rounds wins.
