Soak or Croak is a 4-Player minigame appearing in Super Mario Party.


On top of a fountain, the players each hold a water gun. A geyser erupts in the middle and then stops. The minigame then starts.


Players must use their water guns to spray opponents out of the fountain area. The water gun can shoot five times before it needs to be refilled. Players can refill their water guns manually. The last player standing after all others have been eliminated wins. However, if 30 seconds have passed, every player still standing wins.

On the Challenge Road, this is the 13th and final challenge of Mushroom Beach and the 34th challenge overall. The game is played in a one-on-one format, and the player is required to beat their chosen rival. Getting knocked out of the stage or failing to eliminate their rival before the time runs out counts as a loss.


  • Control Stick – Move
  • Single Joy-Con Right Button – Spray
  • Joy-Con (L) / Joy-Con (R) (horizontal) – Refill

In-game text[edit]

  • Splash your rivals out of the pool!
  • The water tank holds five sprays. Shake Joy-Con for a refill!
