Tile and Error is a 2-vs.-2 minigame in Mario Party 7. Its name is a pun on "trial and error." It takes place on a raised square platform in the middle of a colosseum-esque stadium.


The two teams are shown to a suspended platform with a grid of 16 tiles. Each team must ground-pound them to change them to the team's color. A player can ground-pound the edges and vertices between tiles to change more than one at once (up to four tiles). Players can jump on, punch, kick, and ground-pound each other to temporarily stun them. Additionally, players who are knocked off the stage are returned to the platform by a Fly Guy. The team that has more tiles of its color when the time expires wins. If both teams have eight tiles of their colors, the minigame ends in a tie.


  • Control Stick – Move
  • A Button – Jump
