Midas River

West of Tadpole Pond

  • You’ll participate in this automatically for the first time after exiting the Kero Sewers.
  • In the first part, Mario is descending Midas Falls, but you can slow the fall in order to acquire coins and Frog Coins.
  • You can also enter a few caves to trigger events either helpful or harmful.
  • In the second part, the barrel-jumping part, you must have Mario leap from barrel to barrel at the appropriate times or else go off-course.
  • Going off-course isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as you can acquire further coins this way.
  • Avoid the fish that jump out, or else you’ll lose some coins.
  • The more coins Mario obtains, the better his prize. It costs 30 coins to play.
  • Rewards include Frog Coins. 81 coins fills out a spot in your Play Book.
  • You’ll receive the Koopa Shell weapon for Mario after your inaugural trip.

Tadpole Songs

Tadpole Pond

  • On the rightmost screen at Tadpole Pond, you’ll find a body of water that Tadpoles will appear in. Toadofsky, famous composer, is on the far end.
  • By playing the correct melody, Toadofsky will be ‘inspired’. There are three melodies, though you must return later on to play the others.
  • The minigame is played by timing your jumps between Tadpoles to specific tunes.
  • The eight basic sounds (Do, Re, Mi, etc) are represented by the four lines in the water and the spaces between them.
  • Each song you successfully play rewards you one of three Juice Bar cards.
  • The Alto Card is for Frog Sage’s Suite. The Tenor Card is for Moleville Blues.
  • The Soprano Card, which unlocks the best items, is for Monstro Town.
  • As far as we can tell, you must unlock these in order.

Beetle Race

Booster Hill

  • Your goal here is to keep up with the foe, with Mario reaching out to touch Peach as many times as possible during the chase.
  • Please, for all that is holy, do not misunderstand what the previous bullet point means here.
  • This is a one-time minigame, so do your best!
  • Every time Mario reaches Peach, you’ll gain a Flower.
  • Acquiring set numbers of Beetles will reward you with coins.
  • Return here without a Beetle Box later, and you can scoop up a few Flowers.

Booster Family Portraits

Booster’s Tower

We have a complete guide to this minigame!

  • A weapon for Bowser, the Chain Chomp

Goomba Thumping

Pipe Vault

  • This is essentially Pop the Weasel, Mario-style. You’re trying to jump on Goombas while avoiding Spikeys.
  • There are two types of Goomba: the normal ones and the rare gold variety.
  • Normal Goombas get you one point. Golds get you three. Each Spikey that Mario lands on subtracts your score by one.
  • Reaching 20 points gets you a Flower Tab. 26 gets you a Flower Jar.
  • The remaining rewards are coins.

Yoshi Egg

Post-Battle Screen

  • There’s a chance you’ll play this minigame after battles. Doing so hinges on acquiring the ‘Lucky Bonus Flower’ from certain enemies.
  • The acquisition of Lucky Bonus Flowers is luck-based, but you shouldn’t have trouble finding a fair few throughout the game.
  • Other methods include using the Lucky Jewel item to guarantee the status.
  • It’s a rotating cups game – you want to keep your eye on the egg containing Yoshi, selecting it at the end.
  • In our experience, the rotations are fairly easy to keep track of.
  • Successfully choosing Yoshi doubles your EXP and coins rewards from the fight.

Molevill Minecart

Moleville Mountain

  • You’ll be invited to play this at your leisure after getting the third Star Fragment and rescuing the children.
  • Don’t bother spending ten coins for this. Choose 30 instead, since that’s the only option that gets you coins.
  • The 50 coins you can receive here hinge entirely on whether you’ve beaten your prior record.
  • The minigame alternates between two-dimensional and three-dimensional parts.
  • Gather mushrooms to increase the cart’s speed, and be sure to snag some extra coins along the way when you can.
  • Consider going slowly on this at first, because you’ll hit a point that your own record just isn’t going to get broken, at which point there’s… really no point in this.

Cliff Scaling

Land’s End

  • The goal is to jump from shell to shell until you reach the summit. Rewards are based on the speed at which you achieve this.
  • If you poorly time your jumps, the shells will be right above you, and they’ll thwart your efforts.
  • As such, you’ll want to get a good read on the shells’ individual routes. This will take a few rounds.
  • Ten or fewer seconds gets you the Troopa Medal. This raises the equipped character’s attack stat at the cost of prohibiting bonuses from well-timed strikes.
  • Otherwise, the rewards are Frog Coins.

Marrymore Wedding

We’ll have a full guide for this in-depth minigame soon!

Yoshi Racing

Yo’ster Isle

  • This is something of a rhythm game, racing than a straightforward racing game.
  • You’ll be aiming to time your button presses to the ‘A’ and ‘B’ button prompts.
  • This game is kind of infuriating, to be honest.
  • You’ll bet with Yoshi Cookies, and earn Yoshi Cookies based on your performance.
  • Yoshi Cookies can be used to summon Yoshi in battles. When he eats enemies, you’ll sometimes gain foe-specific items.

Sunken Ship Puzzle

N/A

Knife Guy Juggling

Bean Valley

  • You can’t participate in Grate Guy’s Casino until you acquire the Bright Card.
  • Head to Booster Tower for this. Ascend, and you’ll find Knife Guy.
  • Keep an eye on the yellow ball Knife Guy juggles, and correctly guess which hand he’s holding it in afterward.
  • The Bright Card is your reward for accomplishing this multiple times.

Look The Other Way

Grate Guy’s Casino

  • Mario needs to look left if the guy looks right – and vice versa.
  • This is pretty much a coin flip each time, but it’s mercifully fast.
  • Winning one hundred – yes, one hundred – times earns you the excellent Star Egg.
  • Otherwise, your reward is randomly selected from a list of five items ranging from awful to great.

Card Memory

Grate Guy’s Casino

  • You’ll see some cards with Mario characters on them. Afterward, you’ll need to remember which characters are on which cards.
  • You should aim for at least three successes per round, as your rewards begin from there.
  • Amusingly, this used to be Blackjack back in the original Super Mario RPG. Is Blackjack really that bad?
  • Various recovery items, chosen at random.

Prize Blocks

Grate Guy’s Casino

  • It’s Slots. Make no mistake, it’s just Slots. Another change from SNES to Switch!
  • A wonderful secondary change here – it’s free, whereas it used to cost a few coins.
  • Line up three mushrooms for a Mushroom (naturally.)
  • Line up three flowers for a Flower Syrup.
  • Line up three stars for an Energizer!
