Jump the Gun is a 2-versus-2 minigame found in Mario Party 6. Its name comes from the phrase "jump the gun", which refers to when a person does something prematurely.

There are only aesthetic differences between daytime and nighttime.

Type 2-vs-2
Music Amusing

Introduction Edit

The player mounting the cannon fires a Bullet Bill into the first target. The other player then jumps onto it.

Gameplay Edit

One character on each team controls a cannon that shoots out Bullet Bills. The other character then has to use those Bullet Bills as small platforms to get to the finish line (which is also a platform). Players can only shoot a Bullet Bill onto one of the targets, and may only shoot one at a time. If the other player falls off the stage, a Lakitu hauls them back onto the last Bullet Bill he or she stood upon.

Ending Edit

The winners perform their victory animations at the goal point.
