Tulip Toss is a two-player minigame in Yoshi's New Island. The objective of the minigame is to toss as many Koopa Troopas into the tulips to get stars in one minute. A Yoshi starts the minigame in a grassy area with four pipes nearby, each spawning a Koopa Troopa at a random interval. The player who gets the most points at the end is the winner, with each star counting as ten points.
The stars are given by tulip color as follows:
The tulips change color when a Koopa is thrown into them, and the color change follows this pattern: green, yellow, red.
