Trap Ease Artist is a 4-Player minigame in Mario Party 6. The minigame's name is a pun on "trapeze artist." There is also a page containing this minigame in the Miracle Book, named "Golden Goomba." In Party Mode, it is one of four minigames exclusive to daytime, the others being the Donkey Kong minigames. It reappears in Mario Party: The Top 100.


The introduction shows the first player dropping the cage, trying to trap some Goombas, showing the player how to play.


The main point of the game is to trap as many Goombas as the player can with their cage. When many Goombas are under the cage's shadow, one must press A Button to drop the cage, trapping the Goombas. Regular Goombas give the player one point, but Golden Goombas give them three points. After all of the Goombas are captured, the player with the most points wins.


As soon as all players have dropped the cages, they open. The Goombas inside then leave the cages as the players' tallies increase. The winner(s) then do(es) their victory animation(s).
