Watermelon Whalin' (Watermelon Whacking in the British English version) is a 1-vs.-2 or 3 minigame appearing in Mario Party 10. This minigame appears to be based on a traditional Japanese game, suikawari.

Gameplay[edit]

The players are at a beach, with the solo player holding a hammer and the rivals holding one watermelon each. The objective of the solo player is to whack the watermelons the rivals are holding. A rival whose watermelon gets whacked is eliminated. Rivals that lose their watermelons can still move to try to block the solo player from knocking out any other rival with a watermelon. If the solo player manages to whack all of the watermelons, they win. If at least one rival holds their watermelon for the entire 30 seconds, the rivals win.

Ending[edit]

Any winners cheer while holding up a watermelon slice while Huckit Crabs dance next to them. The losing side is also seen sulking behind the winning side.
