Tick Tock Hop is a Duel player minigame in Mario Party 3. The name is a pun on "Tick Tock Clock", a level from Super Mario 64 with the clock's face resembling its' entrance.
The two players stand on the wooden hour hand while dodging the minute hand by jumping over it. As the game progresses, the minute hand may be the only hand rotating, the hour hand may be the only one rotating, both hands may be rotating, and they may also reverse direction and change speeds. The last player standing in the game wins the duel. If both players make it to 99 consecutive jumps or are knocked off at the same time, it ends in a draw.
