Fruit Cahoots – Mario Party 10
I was never a fan of Mario Party 10’s decision to have every player travel together around the board, as opposed to racing each other to collect stars and coins like in previous Mario Party games. However, Mario Party 10 has some of the best mini-games in the entire franchise.
Fruit Cahoots is all about psychologically messing with your friends, something that should be terrible but just feels so satisfying. The game is divided into 10 rounds where each player has the option of whether or not to move a conveyor belt lined with plates of fruit forward. Players are aiming for the plates with three pieces of fruit, but the plates with one piece are a nice consolation prize. You don’t want to end up with a Bob-omb. Sounds simple, right?
No. Because how much can you really trust your friends? Are they really content with that one piece of fruit? Are they sincere when they say they have no plans of screwing you over? Fruit Cahoots has some of the highest amount of potential for eliciting finger pointing, fake-outs, and backstabs of any Mario Party mini-game; and, let’s be honest, that’s what we all truly want anyway.
