Hide and Sneak is a 1-vs-3 minigame in Mario Party 3. Its name is a pun on the game Hide and Seek.
The mini-game involves three players choosing one of four hiding spots (a tree stump, a rock, a bush and a mushroom house) while the curtain is open. Once it drops, the players are hidden and the one player guesses where the three are hiding. If the player finds one of the three, they are eliminated and their hiding spot is removed from the game. As the hiding spots decrease, the risk of finding more than one player in a certain spot increases. If all of the players are found, they are all eliminated and the one player wins. If the one player fails to eliminate all three within the three rounds, the three players win.
