Type Duel mini-game

Time Bomb is a duel minigame found in Mario Party 2, at Space Land.


Players have to press the plunger at a certain time according to the Goomba. The player who plunges closest to the appropriate time wins, regardless of whether he or she goes over the time limit. For example, if the Goomba tells both players "3 seconds", a player who plunges after 2.72 seconds (0.28 seconds ahead of time) would lose to an opponent who plunges after 3.14 seconds. If both times are the same distance to what Goomba says or if no one acts within 30 seconds, no bomb explodes and a draw is declared.


  • A Button – Push Plunger

In-game text[edit]

  • "This is a time bomb duel! Wait just as long as Goomba tells you, then press the A Button Button. No timer is displayed, so you'll have to guess. Whoever is furthest from the actual time must watch his or her bomb explode!"
