Tow the Line is a 2-vs.-2 minigame in Super Mario Party. Its title is a pun on "toe the line."


Set inside a sewing box, the game has each duo tied together by a white string. Each round features a sample shape on a nine dot grid displayed in the center of the screen, which the competitors must try to replicate by maneuvering the string in between the nine pins on their team's cushion. The first team to match the shape within 30 seconds gets a point.

The minigame can go up to five rounds, but ends once a team has achieved three points, thus winning the match.
