Type Free-for-All minigame

Don't Look is a Free-for-All minigame found in Mario Party 9 and Mario Party: The Top 100. This is the only minigame in Mario Party 9 with no music.


The players are seen standing on the floor. They move while three groups of arrows appear.


There are 10 rounds. During each round, blue arrows pointing in different directions appear. The objective is to make the character look in the direction that the arrows are not pointing at the moment. There is only one arrow in the first two rounds, two arrows in the next four rounds, and three arrows in the last four rounds. With each passing round, there is less and less time for the player to think of where to make the character look. The player will lose the round if they look in the wrong direction or run out of time. The player who beats the most rounds wins.
