Teams attempt to match both of their blocks to get points by punching the block to stop to a character to match it together. A Goomba is worth one point, a Koopa Troopa is worth two points, a Toad is worth three points, and a Baby Bowser is worth -1 point. The team who has the most points wins.
If both teams have the same amount of points when the time runs out, the minigame ends in a draw.
Curiously, in the board showing the points for each character, Goomba and Baby Bowser are listed as being worth "1 pts" and "-1 pts", respectively, when the correct way of writing it is "1pt" and "-1pt". Also, if a partner is a computer AI player, they always match a human's result.
