Panels of Doom is a one-on-one minigame in Mario Party 4. Normally played against Bowser in Party Mode or Story Mode at Bowser's Gnarly Party, this minigame can also be played with a friend once it has been played against Bowser.


The game is set on a 3×3 grid with tiles numbered one through nine. One player picks a tile and stands on it. The second player does the same. Afterwards, players take turns hitting a Dice Block, with the number appearing on it causing the tile with the same number to collapse. The game ends when either player rolls a number that makes the other player or themselves fall. A special possibility is one player rolling the other's face on the Dice Block, causing the other player to fall immediately, resulting in an automatic win.


  •   – Pick tile
