The players must raise the same colored flag as the Shy Guy raises. Sometimes, however, the Shy Guy confuses the players with putting up both flags, lowers one, puts down the other, and keeps up the first flag. If a player picks the wrong flag or is too slow, the Shy Guy shoots that player's balloon with an arrow or if it's in Mario Party, he will cut the rope holding the barrel the player is in, eliminating him or her from the game.
