Shy Guy Says is a minigame from Mario Party and Mario Party 2. The players must raise the same colored flag as the Shy Guy raises. Sometimes, however, the Shy Guy puts 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, eliminating him or her from the game.
This mini-game was later remade for Mario Party 8, where players used the Wii remote and nunchuck to control the character's flags.
