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

Islander games (quiz in Miitopia) are featured in Tomodachi Collection, Tomodachi Life, and Miitopia. Islander games are marked by green problem icons on their window. When the player selects a Mii's window, they will be very excited. Upon entering their apartment, the Mii will ask the player to play a game with them, and the player either agrees or disagrees.

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 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.

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. If the player picks the wrong image, the player will lose the game. If the player picks the right image, the player will proceed to the next 2 quizzes.

The Daruma Doll Fell Down! When the Mii says "The daruma doll...", the player will walk to them and touch them, resulting in winning the game. When they say "Fell down!", if the player does not stop walking to them, The Mii will say "[Mii's] splitting image is moving!", resulting in losing the game. The game noticeably plays similar to "Red Light Green Light", a popular children's 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 EU) cards. There is also a joker card (two of hearts in EU) 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 the red card, the game is over.

Catch The Mii drops a treasure and the player has to try and catch it. If the player manages to catch it, the prize is whatever the player caught. Sometimes, the Mii will tell the player something to distract them and then drop the item so the player will hardly notice. Other times, the Mii will drop the item, but then pull it back up with a string saying, "Oh, it was attached to the string. Weird." The player has only two chances to catch the item.

Sneeze Swipe the feather across their nose until they sneeze. When the Mii opens his/her eyes and says "Ah...!", move the feather away from the nose. This one is similar to a playful mini-game because it will have a game card and the mini-game music will play. However, the player does not get the choice to pick a prize after completion. If the Mii does not sneeze within the time allowed (about 20 seconds), then they will say either "Darn, I lost it" (US) or "No... It's gone," (EU) and the Mii will not gain happiness.
