Rat-a-tat Flat (Scaredy Flat in the British English version) is a General minigame from Mario Party: Island Tour. The American name is a pun on the onomatopoeic term "rat-a-tat-tat", a noise when drumsticks are being played on a snare drum, while the British name comes from "Scaredy Rat".


A Scaredy Rat comes into the room, and Blue Toad Ground Pounds it. More Scaredy Rats enter the room. The minigame begins.


Scaredy Rats come out from the mouse holes, and the player must ground pound as many as they can. As the minigame progresses, Gold Scaredy Rats come out, and are worth three points. The player that squishes the most Scaredy Rats wins.
