Wii Party


1 vs 3


3 Seconds (once fruit has stopped flying)


"The solo player's goal is to count the fruit shown at the start. The team has to try and hide the flying fruit!"

Flying Fruit is a 1 vs 3 Minigame in Wii Party.


The camera zooms in on the fruit that the solo player needs to count. After that, the screen will change to the solo player in a thinking position as he/she turns around and blue curtains show up.

Gameplay (Solo Player)

The solo player must count the fruit which is flying through the curtains as the rival players try to "hide" the fruit from the solo player with panels. The fruits that can appear on screen are: bananas, lemons, and pears (all yellow), or apples, cherries, and strawberries (all red). These are always the combinations of fruit used because they are the same color, so the team can fool the solo player by other fruits.

If the solo player counts them correctly, they wins. If they don’t, the rival players win.

Note: It's possible to count up to 99, but since there cannot be this many of the fruit, it'll result in a loss for the solo player.

Note: When you play with CPUs, they will sometimes put their paddles where there is no fruit, in order to trick the player.

Gameplay (Rival Players)

The rival players must try and hide the fruits from the solo player so that he/she misses some when counting. A good strategy is to start hiding it before it goes past the curtains. If they manage to fool the solo player into missing some fruits or going over the total, they win.

Regional differences

  • The Japanese and North American release use red circles around the fruit when counting how many fruits were flying, but in the European release, circles were replaced with green "V" checkmarks. The purpose is unknown.


  • In the background, it is a parody of the game show Let's Make a Deal.
