"C'mon. Let's play a game!"
— Mii, Tomodachi Life

An islander game is an activity in Tomodachi Collection and Tomodachi Life. Islander games are marked by green problem icons on their window. When the player selects their window, they will be jumping up and down repeatedly; upon entering their apartment, the Mii will ask the player to play a game with them, and the player replies with whatever option. Sometimes, when currently interacting with a Mii after a Mii is given something, they might say to the player, "Since you're already here, let's play a game!", and the player will be prompted to play a game similar to the green problem icon.

Success will grant the player one of three random treasures, while failure will result in receiving either a box of tissues or toilet paper.

Butt-writing quiz The Mii will use their bottom to write letters of a word, and the player will pick one of the four objects that has that wrote word.

The Daruma Doll fell down! When the Mii says "The daruma doll...", the player will walk to him/her and touch him/her, resulting in winning the game.

Cards A simple mini-game where the goal is to get both two red cards, two of diamonds and two of hearts (kings in Europe) cards. There is also a joker card (a two of hearts in Europe) that can be exchanged if the player does not pick the other two of diamonds/hearts/king card. If the player has picked the joker, it can be swiped up to try and trick the Mii into picking it again. The Mii that the player is up against will sometimes give hints or will try to trick the player by closing his or her's eye, that will sometimes tell the player that the card that it's hand is hovering over is the red card. If the Mii picks your red card, the game is over.

If the Mii does not sneeze within the time allowed (about 20 seconds), then they will say "No... It's gone." (EU) "Darn, I lost it" (US) and the Mii will not gain happiness.
