Tidal Toss is a 1-vs-3 minigame found in Mario Party 3. The mini-game is similar to Makin' Waves from Mario Party 4, but with the roles of the single player and the team reversed. It returns in Mario Party: The Top 100.

Gameplay[edit]

Three players try to stay on the platform while the solo player attempts to knock them off by either jumping on or Ground Pounding the boat and making waves, with their size being dependent on the force of the jump/Ground Pound. If one of the three players gets knocked off the platform, he/she will be kicked out of the minigame.

If the player on the boat knocks off all three of the other players, that player wins. However, if at least a single member of the three player team survives, the team wins.
