Weight for It is a duel minigame in Mario Party 7. The minigame's name originates from the saying "wait for it" and has a similar concept to that of Goombrat Combat from Mario Party 10.

Introduction[edit]

The first player knocks a ball past the rival, surprising him/her. Then, he or she walks to the center of the left platform.

Gameplay[edit]

The goal of the minigame is that the two players need to send metallic balls at each other 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 who has the most balls on his or her side loses. There are seven weights, ensuring that a tie is nearly impossible unless the players do nothing. In the event of a tie, however, the platform the two players are on will split in half and fall into the pit, taking the two players and the balls with it.

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!"
