Tipsy Tourney is a 4-Player minigame in Mario Party, Mario Party 2, and Mario Party Superstars. Its name may be a pun on the phrase "topsy-turvy."


The four players have their own screens, standing at their own separate frames. The background in the minigame from Mario Party resembles a set of clouds with eyes that have been drawn with crayons, while Mario Party 2 features a nighttime background, and Mario Party Superstars uses a more realistic version of the Mario Party background. The minigame then starts.


The objective of the minigame is to uncover all the tiles on the frame with a Koopa Shell within 30 seconds. The players have to tilt the frame and let the Koopa Shell slide over the tiles to remove them. If the Koopa Shell bumps towards the player, they will be stunned for a moment. The first player who uncovers the picture frame wins the minigame. Mario Party's image contains a coin, Mario Party 2's image contains the animated head of a Toad surrounded by a ribbon, and Mario Party Superstars' image contains a Super Star, a Super Mushroom, or a Fire Flower.[1]

The minigame can be purchased from the Mini-Game House for 350 coins in Mario Party and from Woody for 50 coins in Mario Party 2.
