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 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 by getting 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 bash the player once, getting a Chain Chomp figure causes it to bash 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.


In-game text[edit]

  • Game Rules"Jump up to hit the spinning blocks. The first one to get 5 Toad faces wins!"
