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

An islander game, known as a Quiz in Miitopia, is a minigame featured in Tomodachi Collection, Tomodachi Life, and Miitopia. 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. In Miitopia, the player must search out the Quizmaster before playing one of the minigames.

Success or a draw will grant the player one of three random treasures, while failure will result in receiving either a box of tissues or toilet paper. In Miitopia, this is changed to HP Bananas, MP Candies, or random foods.
