Tap Dash (known as Find It First in the British English version) is a General minigame from Mario Party: Island Tour. The name is a pun on "tap dance", a type of dance.


One of the enemies shown on the Touch Screen spinning around. The hand on the Touch Screen moves to the panel that matches the character, and taps it. The minigame then begins.


A Mario enemy such as a Lava Bubble is seen on the top screen, and players must quickly touch the panel that matches them. The first player to find it gets nine points, second awards six points, three for third and one point for fourth. If a player touches an incorrect panel or doesn't touch the panel within the time limit, then no points will be awarded. The player with the most points after three rounds wins.
