The players stand on the white hexagon in the center of a pit of magma. The other six then show up and join around it, and the minigame begins.
When the Toad raises a colored flag, all the players must go to the hexagon tile with the same color; all the other hexagon tiles slowly sink into to the hot lava. Players can also jump on their opponents to slow them down, or Ground Pound them to squish them flat and stop them altogether, at the risk of being eliminated themselves. As the game progresses, the hexagons fall and rise faster. The last player standing wins.
The hexagon's order is always, from top left to bottom right: yellow, red, light blue, white (where the players start), green, dark blue, and pink.
