Weird Wheels is a 1-vs-Rivals minigame featured in Mario Party 9. The gameplay in this minigame is very similar to Coin-op Bop from Mario Party 7.


The vehicles approach the starting line, and the camera zooms out slightly.


Players must move vehicles whose wheels aren't round; square wheels for the solo player's vehicle, and triangular wheels for the rivals' vehicle. The single player moves his/her vehicle by pressing the +Control Pad buttons in the exact order shown on-screen. The rivals move their vehicle by pressing One Button or Two Button one-by-one. When the solo player press a wrong button, he or she must start another combination. When a player from the team presses a wrong button, they must simply try again. A total of five combinations must be done to reach the goal.

In-game text[edit]
