The tiles for the grid drop down on the board while the solo player stands on a block in the upper left corner. All the blocks drop down; three big ones and one small one. The solo player jumps into the small one and the minigame begins.
The solo player must avoid being crushed by the team players. The team players can cover 4 tiles, which is more than the solo player (which is only 1 per roll), with each roll, but to counter this disadvantage, the solo player moves much more quickly than the team players.
Depending on whoever wins, the loser(s) will be chased by Thwomps in the background and trip while the winner(s) perform their victory pose on top of a golden Thwomp.
