Blame It on the Crane is a 1 vs. 3 Player mini-game in Mario Party 4. The name of this mini-game is derived from the song "Blame It on the Rain," which was featured in "Kootie Pie Rocks," an episode of The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3, in which the rock band Milli Vanilli guest-starred.

Gameplay

One player controls the crane while the other three are in color-coordinated balls on a circle-shaped platform. The platform spins counterclockwise. Seven Shy Guys are also in similar-colored balls. The solo player must grab the players on the platform while it spins around. When a player is grabbed by the crane, he or she loses. Grabbing a Shy Guy results in nothing but less time.

If at least one of the three players has not been picked up by the crane in the time limit, his or her team will win. If all of the three players are picked up, the solo player wins.
