Hello and welcome to the Mini-Game FAQ for Banjo-Kazooie. This is a guide to
tell you the best ways to complete the few mini-games in Banjo-Kazooie.

You may already know that I have composed a Mini-Game FAQ for Banjo-Tooie, so
today I though "Why not do one for Banjo-Kazooie as well." So here it is.

Though there aren't as many mini-games in Banjo-Kazooie than in Banjo-Tooie,
they are still equally fun and challenging. So have a read though of this guide
to get the best tips and strategies for the mini-games.

Where is the Game?
To find this game you will need to be up to Bubblegloop Swamp. There you must
find Mumbo's Skull by going to the area with the large crocodile head. Go
through the maze to reach the skull and turn into a crocodile. Then go back to
the giant crocodile head and enter it through one of the nostrils where you
will find the game room.

What are the Controls?
Control Stick - Move
     A Button - Jump
     B Button - Eat

How is it Played?
Round 1: This sounds simple, but it can be quite changeling. When the game
         starts you have to run around the room where there are holes in the
         ground. Every so often, a Yumbly will pop out a hole. Run over to it
         and eat it. You have to win by eating the most Yumblies. Then it's
         time for the second round.

Round 2: In round 2 you have to play by the same rules but this time there are
         Yellow Yumblies. These Yumblies are stale, so don't eat them. When you
         win, it's time for the final round.

Round 3: In this game you will see a picture at the top of the screen. It will
         show either a picture of a Red Yumbly, or a Yellow Yumbly. When it
         shows a Red Yumbly, eat ONLY Red Yumblies. When it shows a Yellow
         Yumbly, eat ONLY Yellow Yumblies.

Tips and Strategies
As you play Round 1 and 2 you will have to be on your toes all the time. You
have to get those Yumblies as fast as you can, so try and go for the Yumblies
that pop-up close to each other so you can grab them quicker. You can also go
for the Yumblies that Mr. Vile is going for, but this isn't recommended. When
you have to play Round 3, there is a little trick that I use to win this
easier. When you see the picture at the top of the screen you will notice that
the picture spins around. Now watch the picture, as it begins to spin slower
and hp around it will change. So when the spinning slows down, get ready to go
for the next type of Yumbly.

Another great tip to help you win this game is to learn the Turbo Trainers
skill from Bottles. There are a pair of Turbo Trainers in the room, pick these
up to run a lot faster.

Other Information
If you lose a round, Mr. Vile will chase you around the room. Run out the
nostril as fast as you can because if he catches you he will bite you and you
will loose honeycombs of health. And don't jump up onto the higher ground to
get away from him. It doesn't work. Don't worry, I'm guilty of trying that.

When you complete all three round for the first time you will get a Jiggy. Then
Mr. Vile asks you if you would like to play the rounds again, if you win this
time, you win 3 lives. But if you lose a game, he will take one life away. If
you have a high number of notes for Bubblegloop Swamp, go ahead and take up the
challenge if you wish. I don't recommend this otherwise.


Where is the Game?
You need to be able to get to Freezezy Peak. Then go into the level and look
around for a huge Christmas Tree. Go over to it and you will see a wood path
leading to the tree. At the start of the path is a box that's moving. Use the
Beak Buster on it to open it and the game will begin.

What are the Controls?
The controls are the same as always when you play the game.

How is it Played?
On the path leading to the Christmas Tree are 3 holes. Inside each hole is a
goblin-looking thing that eats Twinklies. When the game starts the Twinklies
will jump out the box 1 by 1 and head for the tree. It's up to you to stop the
Twinkly Eaters by giving them a good smack. You have to get 20 Twinklies to the
tree. Sounds easy? Yeah, right.

Tips and Strategies
This can be a little difficult but the way I do this is to do it in a rhythm. I
think this is the only way we can do this. So wait next to the box as the game
starts and wait for the closest Twinkly Eater to pop up. Then use Rat-ta-tap
Rap on it. Then do this to the second and third quickly. By the time you smack
the third and get to the first again he will pop up, so hit them in the order
again. It may take a few tries but it will work out in the end.


Where is the Game?
This game is also in Freezezy Peak, you will have to help Boggy out first, he
ate a Jiggy. So climb up the scarf of the HUGE snowman and ride the sled to
land on him and get the Jiggy. Now find Mumbo's Skull and transform into the
seal and find him at the starting line of the race.

What are the Controls?
Control Stick - Move
     A Button - Jump

How is it Played?
Round 1: When the race starts hold forward on the Control Stack and go! The aim
         of the race is to go through the blue flag posts in the correct order.
         When you see a red set of posts, this mean these are the ones you have
         completed and the green means that these are the next ones to go
         through. You will have to use all your skill to win the race.
         Especially when it comes to the area with the houses, this bit is the
         hardest in my opinion. When you win, you get a Jiggy, and a chance for
         Round 2.

Round 2: You will need to be normal banjo and Kazooie for this race, so get
         Mumbo to change you back. Then meet him up on the starting ramp again.
         Then it's the same rules as before, only this time he is harder to

Tips and Strategies
When it comes to having to race him as the bear and bird, you cannot win
without the Turbo Trainers. So you should learn them before you take up this


Where is the Game?
This is the last level you do before you go and fight the witch for real. This
is a huge game boards, but the rules are a little bit strange.

What are the Controls?
Control Stick - Move on the board
     A Button - Play on the square you are standing on
     B Button - Skip square you are standing on (Joker Card required)

How is it Played?
This is kinda like any basic board game. What you have to do is make your way
to the other side of the boar without getting killed. Seems easy. Well, not
really. When you start you will stand on the first square, press A on it to be
asked a question. Read the question carefully and answer it from the 3 possible
answers displayed on the screen. You will have to remember al the knowledge you
gained when you played the game to be able to answer the question. But you
don't have to answer a question on all of the squares. Continue to read on for
the explanation of all the types of squares on the board.

Banjo-Kazooie Square - You will have to answer a general knowledge question
about the game. These aren't all that hard.

Grunty Square - If you listen to all the things Brentilda had to say in the
game. You will have to remember them as best as you can because you will be
asked a question about Gruntilda.

Visual Squares - These have a picture of an eye on them. You will be shown a
picture from the game and you will be asked where this is from.

Music Squares - You will get to listen to some music from the game and you will
have to answer on where or when you heard that piece of music.

Challenge Squares - You will have to complete a timed challenge in the game
that you have done. But there is a difference about them.

Death Squares - A square with a skull on it. You will have to do the challenge
correct because if you get it wrong, you will get sent to your fiery doom.

Joker Squares - Answer the question correctly to receive 2 Joker Cards. Use
these by pressing B on a square and you will be aloud to skip it.

Tips and Strategies
Because there are so many different things to go in this game you will have to
remember all the little things that you picked up as you were playing through.
When it comes to the visual tiles, you will have to look t all of the different
things in the picture and try to recognise them with a world you have been to.
way I do it is by the colours of things. If everything is a dull yellow, it
be Clanker's Cavern. Then if you were to see something white, it could be
Peak, just try your best into remembering. Some of these are quiet easy to
out anyway.

When it comes to the music tiles you have to remember that music well. If you
the sound on during the game, these questions will be pretty easy. When it
to the voices of characters, try your best into remembering who they are.

The challenge tiles are quite fun. You must have to complete a harder version
of a
puzzle you completed in the game before hand.

Then there are the Gruntilda Squares. If you found all of the locations of
Brentilda throughout Gruntilda's Lair and you listen to all the 3 things she
to tell you, these shouldn't be that hard. I can't give you the answers to
because the answers change from game to game.

Then there are the Joker Squares. Get the question right and you get 2 Joker
Cards, use these to get past the squares you don't want to do. If you get the
square wrong however, you can't have another chance at the square again.


Where is the Game?
If you go all the way back to Spiral Mountain and go into Banjo's house, you
can play a fun mini-game tat can drastically change the way you play. Wanna
know how? Well, go into Banjo's house and stand on the edge of the rug and face
the fireplace. Then press C-Up and look at the picture above the fireplace. Now
you get to play the puzzle game.

What are the Controls?
Control Stick - Move Banjo's hand
     A Button - Pick up/put down puzzle piece
     B Button - Send back puzzle piece to edge
 C-Left/Right - Rotate puzzle piece left of right 1 space

How is it played?
The people, who have played Banjo-Tooie, will know what to do when it comes to
this game. For those who haven't played it: You have 100 seconds to complete a
jigsaw puzzle. All the pieces are on the outside of the board, you have to pick
up the pieces and put them on the correct place on the board. The picture is
moving so you have to be quick and pay as much attention as possible to the
background as possible.

What is it for?
Every time you complete a puzzle you get a cheat. Then you go down to the
sandcastle of Treasure Trove Cove and you type it in. Then you can activate the
cheat. The cheat give you things like: Big head banjo, big hands and feet, big
everything ect. If you complete all of the puzzles, you get to turn into a
washing machine. Yes you read correctly, a washing machine.
