Star 'Stache Smash is a minigame featured in an arcade in Little Fungitown during the events of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and its 3DS remake. However, the minigame is mandatory for the story to progress. The Mario Bros. could also play this arcade game for free. The rules of Star 'Stache Smash, as explained by a Geno doll (a text bubble in the remake), is to tilt the tray with the items on it into the open holes at each side of the screen. There is only one side open at a time. Pressing A Button/A Button will tilt the tray to the right while pressing B Button/B Button will tilt the tray to the left. Players have one minute (60 seconds) to rack up as many points as possible.

Every time the player gets an item through an open hole, a certain amount of points are awarded depending on the item. Mushrooms are worth one point, Fire Flowers are worth three and Stars are worth five. Bob-ombs are also worth one point, but they also cause the other side to open and close the side they landed in. In the story, the Mario Bros. win an Invincishroom for getting a score of 200 or better. This causes Mario to gain Bean Fever after consuming the Invincishroom.


Star 'Stache Smash can be played later in exchange for Hee Beans. The chart below lists the amount of points required to earn a certain amount of Hee Beans.
