In this mini-game, the player needs to be the first to split the logs that the Whittle puts on the trunk by moving the Wii Remote. On occasion, the Whittle will put a Bob-omb on the stump instead, and the player must press A to duck. If the player fails to do so, then they are stunned for the next round. The first player to get three points wins. The game will immediately end after this, which means that the other players will be ranked based on how many logs they've chopped.
The player views the mini-game from behind their character in Perspective Mode. If they smash the logs the most, they win and unlock a new minigame.
