The Mario Troll-off was a competition within the staff to see how who was the best troll in New Super Mario Bros U. In this game, one player would try to progress through a level of the game while the other player used the tablet, trying to trap, kill and slow down their opponent. Nick and Chad hosted, with Craig shouting behind the camera. Craig and Nick came up with the idea at E3 while playing the game.

There were three ways of winning:

  1. Have less deaths than your opponent.
  2. If the number of deaths is tied, whoever was fastest wins.
  3. If a player runs out of time in game, they are disqualified.
