60 seconds (1 minute)


"The Gamepad player drives the big tank and tries to roll over rival players or hit them with spiked balls. Rival players win if they deplete the Gamepad player's energy with spiked balls."

Operation: Sandbox is a 1 vs Rivals Minigame In Wii Party U.


The rival players must get rid of the solo player by shooting spiked balls at them. They must avoid the solo player’s balls, along with them being rammed. If they are hit, they are launched out.

The solo player must eliminate all rival players by shooting their bigger spiked balls at them, or by ramming them. Their life count will decrease if there are less rivals (if there are three, their count will drop from six hearts to 3 hearts).


  • The solo player should use the joysticks on the Wii U GamePad to move, press ZR to shoot.
  • The rival player(s) should hold their Wii Remotes horizontally and press 2 to shoot.


  • This is the only 1 vs Rivals Minigame where a tie is possible.
  • If they do this in Highway Rollers, they will not move a space.
    • This is done by having the solo player and at least one rival player last the whole minute.
