Weight for It is a Duel minigame in Mario Party 7. The minigame's name is a play on the phrase "wait for it."

Introduction[edit]

The first player knocks a ball past the rival, surprising them, before taking their position in the center of the left platform.

Gameplay[edit]

The two players must send as many of the seven weighted balls to the opposing side as they can by whacking them with their hammers. If one player knocks a ball into the opponent, that opponent will be stunned for a few seconds. Once time is up, the player with fewer weighted balls on their side wins; while a tie is possible, it is highly unlikely to occur in normal play unless the players do nothing.

Ending[edit]

The winning player celebrates as the losing player's side of the stage falls into the pit, taking them with it. In the event of a tie, however, both sides of the platform will fall into the pit.

Controls[edit]

  • Control Stick – Move
  • A Button – Swing hammer

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules"Hit balls with a hammer to roll them toward your rival. The player with the least amount of balls wins!"
  • Advice"Hit the balls! Quickly! It's easy and fun!"
