Clock Watchers is a 4-Player Mic minigame found in Mario Party 7. Its name is a play on "clock" and both forms of the word "watch" (which is a term for a miniature clock or a verb meaning "to observe").

IntroductionEdit

The Goomba-filled audience cheers as the players run onto the stage.

GameplayEdit

The announcer gives each player a set time to aim for, which is shown on the large clock. The players have to say "Stop" into the Mic after an amount of time as close to said amount as possible has passed. After three seconds, the timer disappears, forcing players to keep track themselves. If a player does not stop the clock within 20 seconds, the game sets their time at 20 seconds. The player(s) who come(s) closest to their target time(s) win(s). If all players have the same amount of time passed, the minigame ends in a tie.

EndingEdit

The crowd cheers as winners do their victory animations and, unless all four players got the same distance from their target times, losers do their losing animations. If the minigame ends in a tie, the players perform their losing animations.

ControlsEdit

  •   – Say: "Stop"

In-game textEdit

  • Rules"Stop the timer as close to the target time as you can."
  • Advice"Once the timer disappears, keep counting in your head."
