Take a Stab is a Rhythm minigame in Super Mario Party. Its name is a pun on a phrase that means "to try."


Players have to stab fruit that Lakitus throw at just the right time to the beat of a tropical/island-themed song. Two Galoombas appear on the sides, jumping when every player gets a "Nice!" result at the same time.

The perfect score is 57 on Normal difficulty and 102 on Hard difficulty.


  • Joy-Con (L) – Skewer
