Swervin' Skies is a 1-Vs.-3 minigame that is found in Mario Party 8.


The trio are flying airplanes with a sphere target on each wing. The soloist flies up behind them with a gun on each wing. The solo player shoots six bullets at the middle player of the trio but misses all six.


The solo player's goal is to shoot down the trio within the time limit to win by destroying the sphere targets located on each the trio's airplane wings. The trio's goal is to dodge the bullets until the time limit is up.


Solo Player: Hold the Wii controller vertically, move controller in all directions to move airplane and press A Button / B Button to shoot.
Trio: Hold the Wii Remote vertically, move controller in all directions to move airplane and dodge bullets.


If the solo player wins, the camera pans to face them and they wave. If any of the trio remains after the time limit, the trio flies on screen (even if they have been shot down) and waves.
