Sweeps Week is one of Young Cricket & Master Mantis's microgames in WarioWare: Smooth Moves and WarioWare Gold. The name is a pun on the phrase "Sweeps Week", and it features the sport of curling.


WarioWare: Smooth Moves[edit]

The player has to sweep with the Wii Remote to get the curler to the target goal.

  • 1st level difficulty: The curling rock has to travel a short distance.
  • 2nd level difficulty: The curling rock has to travel a medium distance.
  • 3rd level difficulty: The curling rock has to travel a long distance.

WarioWare Gold[edit]

The distance is the same across all difficulty levels, but with different ice conditions and curling rock sizes.

  • 1st level difficulty: The ice is smooth and takes little sweeping to remove.
  • 2nd level difficulty: The ice is rough and takes more sweeping to remove.
  • 3rd level difficulty: The ice takes as much sweeping to remove as the 2nd level, but with a larger curling rock (larger than the goal itself), requiring a wider sweep path to reach the target.

In the files of WarioWare Gold, there is an unused, longer version of the music played in this microgame among all the other minigame sound files, implying there may have been a full version of the game planned to be a minigame.
