Hand, Line and Sinker is a 1 vs. 3 mini-game that appears in Mario Party 3.


Single Player

The player must try and reel in the three characters that are transformed into fish. The player must use his/her fishing rod with a hand on it to try and reel them in. The player must catch all of them in time in order to win.

Three Players

The three players are transformed into fish and must avoid being caught by the single player. They must swim around to ensure they won't get caught. Keeping away from each other and staying to the higher end of the pond are great ways to avoid getting captured. If at least one player doesn't get caught by the end of time, the three players win.
