The minigame takes place in a beach with some seashells on the sand. The four players are standing near the watery waves. Then suddenly, the waves come in towards the players as they avoid it by running back. The waves withdraw back into the oceans as the players go back to their positions. Shortly after that, the minigame begins.
To gather Coins, the players must first wait for the waves from the ocean to come by. When the waves come by, the players have to avoid the waves. Any player who is caught in the arriving waves is stunned for a few seconds as the player is dragged into the ocean. When the waves finally go back into the ocean, some Coins are left for the players to collect. Occasionally, a Red Coin (worth five regular Coins) would be there on the sand after the waves. The process repeats a few times until the time limit runs out.
The characters will do their victory pose, unless they did not collect any coins, in which case they do their losing pose instead. If all players do not get any coins, they all do their losing animation while "Tie" appears on the screen.
