1.Mini-Games

This part tells you how to kick butt in the games:
Balloon Battle     
Shine Thief          
Bob-omb Battle    

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Balloon Battle

In    COOKIE LAND    pick up items as you go and chase your opponent. I know you 
know that, but try to keep your opponent on the outer part of the cookie. If your 
opponent goes into the center part of the cookie, follow him or her and BLAST that 
go-kart out. Itís better to stay on the outer part of the cookie because it is 
easier to hit your opponent without missing.

In    BLOCK CITY    try not to get stuck at a corner. That leaves you highly open 
for attack. Also, watch out for the      end, that will cause trouble as well as a 
corner will. At the beginning when it says to go, donít waste your time trying to 
get the item box before your opponent. Take a turn and try your luck on even more 
boxes.

In    NINTENDO GAMECUBE    get a lot of boxes and whoop your opponent. One more 
thing, keep moving around the course, that way, your opponent canít hit you good.

In    PIPE PLAZA    watch your opponentís screen, if he or she gets a lethal weapon 
like Chain Chomp or Red Shell, quickly run, or should I say drive away through the 
tube, out the other side. Then itís your turn to attack. Check your opponentís 
screen again to see which tube he or she will come out of, get a good, lethal, ha-i-
got-you-good attack, get next to the right tube and launch the attack.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Shine Thief

I donít have to go through every single course this time Ďcause the rules are 
simple.
Shine Thief is sort of like         , let your opponent have the shine and when 
youíre ready to place your bet, excuse me, when youíre ready to get the shine 
quickly get it. Make sure you get the shine when the time is low so your opponent 
canít get it back. Also make sure you have enough time to get the shine. 

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bob-omb Battle

This oneís fun! Just use the same strategies as balloon battle but this time, get 
hyper! Quickly get as much       as you can, and then launch them all over the 
place! Or you can do it the boring way and conserve your      . May be the right 
choice, though.

the point.= this cup is easy!!! Donít tell me you canít beat itÖ well thatís what

him or her bump into the wall!

the ducks are), turn left. This may slow you down if the path was water on it at 
the end.

the road. Go into the pipe. This will slow you down if you donít boost right before 
the pipe.

the bridge, you can go up the sides of the bridge!
