Wheel of Woe is a 1-vs.-3 Mic minigame in Mario Party 7. Its name is a reference to the American game show Wheel of Fortune.


The minigame is set in a dark, brick-walled room with torches lit on each side. The solo player's goal is to eliminate the other three players in the time allotted. The other three ride on a cog. The solo player can call various commands into the Mic. If there is no Mic, the commands are selected from a blue box. Commands include having Bullet Bills launch from Bill Blasters, having Chain Chomps released from their cages to attack the other three players, and having the Shy Guy control the direction the cog spins in. A team player can jump on a Bullet Bill headed towards them to make it crash. If a player is hit by an enemy or falls into the pit, that player is eliminated. The solo player wins if they eliminate the other three players. The team players win if at least one of them survives until time is up.
