Sphere Mongers is a 4-Player minigame appearing in Super Mario Party. The name is a pun on "fearmongers," a pejorative for people or organizations that try to stir the public through scares, usually through exaggerated or false information.


The first player picks up a group of silver spheres and takes them to their area, earning no points. The other players then appear, and a large number of spheres fall down onto the arena. The minigame then begins.


Each player rides a UFO with a magnet underneath it. Various metallic spheres spawn and fall into the arena. The silver spheres are worth one point, while the gold ones are worth three. While the spheres are falling, players can catch some without having to lower the magnet. For spheres on the ground, however, players must lower the magnet to grab some spheres. Players can then drop the spheres into a zone for points. Players move slower with more spheres, and spheres can be knocked from the magnetic pull if players collide with each other. The player(s) with the most points win(s).

On the Challenge Road, this is the 16th minigame in End of the Road and the 79th minigame overall. In the normal challenge, the player needs to score at least 30 points to win. In the Master Challenge, the player must get first place without collecting a single gold sphere.


  • Control Stick – Move
