Throw Me a Bone is a 4-Player minigame in Mario Party 6. Its name comes from an expression used as a plaintive request for someone to go easy on or aid the speaker.

There are only aesthetic changes between the daytime and the nighttime. When this minigame is played in Decathlon Park, the Chain-Chomp that was watching the events follows the four players.

There is a Miracle Book page featuring this minigame called "Fetch." Activating the page allows Mario to throw the bone with a herd of Chain-Chomps going after it. Koopa Kid is also riding a Chain-Chomp.


The camera starts out with a front view of the first player on the Chain-Chomp. It then rotates around to behind the player as the screen splits into four sections.


Players attempt to toss bones to make the Chain-Chomps they ride upon move forward toward the goal. A purple arrow moving left and right appears in front of the player before they toss a bone. Pressing A Button stops the arrow. The player then tosses a bone in that direction, after which the Chain-Chomp chases the bone. If the player makes the Chain-Chomp bump into a column, they both get temporarily stunned. The first one to cross the finish line wins. If five minutes pass, the minigame ends in a tie.

This minigame appears as the eighth minigame in Decathlon Park. Here, the player's objective is to get to the goal as fast as possible to earn as many points as possible, up to 1,000. The default record for this minigame in Decathlon Park is 60 seconds.


There are two possible endings. The first involves the winner performing their victory animation with the Chain-Chomp behind them. The second ending happens only when a New Record occurs. It involves the winner performing the animation as a bone is thrown across the screen from offscreen; a Chain-Chomp then races after it.
