Teetering Towers is a 1-Player minigame found in Mario Party.


The player must jump across the tops of tilting towers. The towers tilt in a different direction depending on where the player lands. When a tower teeters over, the player must jump to the next one. Some of the towers have either a Coin or a Coin Bag. The minigame is cleared if the player reaches the final platform at the end. If the player falls into the pit, the minigame ends in a "Miss!" and they lose five Coins.
