Toad and Go Seek is a Free-for-All minigame featured in Mario Party 9. The game is a pun on the children's game "hide and go seek," also known as "hide-and-seek."


The players stand in a square, turning their heads as if they are looking around. Then, a video of a blue Toad running into a Toad House is played.


Birdo finding the Toad

Players try to be the first to successfully find the house with the Toad in it, with the rest being occupied by Goombas. Players run around, knocking on doors. If players carefully watched the video of the Toad, there is little to no guesswork involved.

There is a two-minute time limit for this minigame. If the players do not find the right Toad House within a minute, a map will appear to help them out.

In the Step It Up version of this minigame, the camera zooms into the player who found the Toad first.
