Toad in the Box (stylized as TOAD in the Box) is a 4-Player minigame that appears in Mario Party 2. Its name is a pun on the name of the toy the jack-in-the-box.


The players fall from above onto a stage, followed by the blocks. The minigame then starts.


Players have to hit the spinning blocks and get a Toad face each time. Each time a player gets a Toad face, the spinning block gets a little faster. The floor below them also rises one level. If one of the players hits the spinning block and gets something other than a Toad face, the player gets stunned for a moment: Getting a Piranha Plant figure causes it to hit the player once, getting a Chain Chomp figure causes it to hit the player twice, and getting a Bowser figure causes Baby Bowser to come down and smash the player. The first player who gets five Toad faces wins. If nobody does so within a certain time limit, the minigame ends in a draw.
