Target Tag is a 4-Player minigame in Mario Party 7. Its name is a pun on the real-life game "target tag," in which players are tagged by being hit by a ball or suction cup dart.


The four players jump into their respective cannons and are launched airborne.


The players use the control stick to maneuver themselves into the targets.

Players get the number of points displayed on the targets they hit. They must be careful, however, as hitting targets with a Bowser symbol on them will deduct all their points. The bigger the point value, the smaller the targets, and those with Bowser symbols are the largest. The player(s) who has/have the most points at the end of the game win(s).

This is one of the minigames that can appear in Decathlon Castle. Here, the player's objective is to get as high of a score as possible to earn as many points as possible, up to 1,000.


The winner(s) do(es) their winning animation.
