Tug o' War is a 1-vs-3 minigame found in Mario Party. It is based on the real-life game, Tug of War.
The player in the Bowser Suit has to pull the rope alone while the three players have to pull the rope together. The team who rotates the slowest will fall into a Piranha Plant's mouth. If the three players lose, the player in the Bowser Suit wins five coins from each player and laughs evilly; if the three players win, they each get five coins from the player in the Bowser Suit and do their victory poses.
This minigame has a Bowser variation, sometimes triggered from a Bowser Space. Here, whoever loses the minigame loses coins. If a draw occurs then everyone loses coins.
In Mini-Game Island, the player is the solo player in the Bowser Suit and must make the three players fall into the Piranha Plant's mouth.
