Control Shtick is a Battle minigame found in Mario Party 6. Its name is based on "control stick," the official term for the analog stick found on Nintendo's controllers. Two control sticks are used to play this minigame.


The players are facing the camera before their podiums turn them around. The screen then displays a random pose, which all the players strike correctly.


Players have to use Control Stick and C Stick to move their arms in varying directions to copy the directions from the screen. As time passes, the players have to react faster. A player who poses incorrectly falls through a hole in their platform and is eliminated. The last player remaining wins. If at any time none of the players strike the correct pose, they are all eliminated and the game is a tie.


The camera zooms in on the winner as they face the screen, as well as the screen in the minigame showing them. The winner then performs their victory animation. If everyone is eliminated, nothing else will happen afterwards.


  • Control Stick – Control left hand
  • C Stick – Control right hand
