Tiles and Tribulations is a Coin Chaos minigame in Mario Party: Star Rush. Its name is a pun on the phrase "trials and tribulations", referring to a test of patience and endurance, and it is also the name of a Windows puzzle game released in 1993, though this minigame itself bears a closer resemblance to Tetris Attack. This minigame, alongside Rolling Rumble and Goomba Gold Rush are the only Coin Chaos minigames available after the Coinathlon mode is unlocked.

Gameplay[edit]

Tiles and Tribulations is a puzzle-based minigame that plays similarly to Triangle Twisters. Players rotate tiles of various generic enemies to match three or more in a row to eliminate them and earn some coins. If tiles are eliminated, the space they leave behind causes tiles to fall while more appear from the top. Bob-omb tiles, when eliminated, explode and have an area of effect that destroys nearby tiles. Item-related tiles can appear if the player collects enough coins; these also need to be matched in a row of three to receive them.
