8 Seconds (All 3 Rounds)


"Choose left or right and cross your fingers! If you're unlucky, you'll get zapped. Two zaps and it's game over."

Dicey Descent is a 4-player minigame in Wii Party.


The camera will pan upwards as all three platforms shut tight. As the very first one gets shut, all 4 players fall and land on it.


Players start out on top of the three platforms and must pick the right or left side on where they want to fall. However, one side of each platform has thunderclouds that can shock unlucky players. If they get shocked twice, they are out.

The player(s) who reaches the finishing platform without getting zapped the most, or is the last one standing, wins.

Gameplay (Spot the Sneak)

In Spot The Sneak, the Sneak's remote will rumble once a second if they pick the correct side.


The minigame can end in two ways:

  • If there is only one player standing or all players are eliminated and they have yet to make it past the last platform, the minigame ends.
  • After all players made it past all three platforms (or at least more than one player), the minigame ends.


  • This game is a luck-based minigame, like Lucky Launch and Risky Railroad.
  • It is possible to not get a tie, but it is very unlikely as it will have to be very specific: one mii gets zapped out on the second one, one gets zapped out on the third, and 2 survive, one with one zap and one without any. Because of this, not getting a tie is very unlikely.
