Mario Party: The Top 100: Mario Party Superstars:

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


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


The objective of the game is for each player to trap as many Goombas as they can with their cage. When many Goombas are under the cage's shadow, the player 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 cages have been dropped, the player with the most points wins.

In the European/Australian version of Mario Party 6, Trap Ease Artist does not appear in Endurance Alley.


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), while (unless everyone has the same number of points) the losers sulk.
