Tanks a Lot (known as Koopa Koliseum in the British English version) is a General minigame from Mario Party: Island Tour. The American English name is a pun on the saying "thanks a lot".


The field where the players are battling is seen overhead. The camera moves to a view behind the player, and the minigame begins.


The players are in tanks, and are blasting at each other. If a player gets blasted, the player that they hit respawns, and they get a point. If a brown Brick Block gets blasted, it disappears. The first player to get three points wins, whereas players who didn't score any points are automatically ranked last place.


  • Circle Pad – Move
  • A Button – Fire
