Snack Attack is a 4-Player minigame appearing in Super Mario Party. Its name is a play on a term used to denote a person who has a sudden urge to eat specific foods.


One of the corncob-shaped volcanoes in the background erupts, launching lots of popcorn kernels and volcanic debris into the air. The minigame then begins.


The minigame is set in a circular area. Players must catch the popcorn that falls into the area. Each popcorn kernel collected yields one point. If volcanic debris falls onto a player, they spill half their popcorn and get stunned for one second. Both popcorn and volcanic debris have a shadow appear on the ground to signify that they are going to fall at that spot. After 30 seconds have passed, the player with the most points wins.

On the Challenge Road, this is the final challenge of Chestnut Forest and the 21st challenge overall. The goal is to beat the player's chosen rival (only two players in total play this minigame). The rival is commonly Diddy Kong, and beating him unlocks him as a playable character.

  • Bowser is smaller in this minigame compared to others. This is possibly because of his large size. After the minigame ends, he returns to his normal size. Bowser is also smaller in the minigames Gridiron Gauntlet and Bumper Brawl.
