Tile and Error is a 2-vs.-2 minigame in Mario Party 7. Its name is a pun on "trial and error."


The two teams will be shown to a suspended platform with a grid of 16 tiles. Whenever a Ground Pound is done on one, the color changes. The basic object of this minigame is for a team to have more tiles of their color when the time expires.

In order to attack the competition, players can not only punch, kick, and jump but also ground-pound on top of each other's heads to flatten and temporarily stun them. Additionally, players who are knocked off the stage will be returned to the platform by a Fly Guy.
