Freeze Frame is a 4-Player minigame in Mario Party 6. Its name is a play on the name of the cinematic technique freeze frame.

There is a page in the Miracle Book that features this minigame, titled "Say Goomba." Mario is taking a picture of Peach. Activating the page reveals a pack of Goombas and a Shy Guy around the area. Luigi is also hiding in the corner.

The camera first shows the first player viewing the area, with all the Goombas exposed. The Goombas then hide as the camera zooms into the player.


The players have 10 seconds to take a picture with as many Goombas in it as possible. Players must take a picture of some sort of town with Goombas hiding around it. Between day and night, the only difference is what gives extra points; during the day, it is a Shy Guy, and at night, it is a UFO. Players get only one exposure. Goombas are worth one point each, while Shy Guys and UFOs are worth three points each. The player with the most points at the end of the minigame wins. If all of the players have the same number of points, they will all win. However, if none of the players take a picture within 10 seconds, the minigame will end in a tie.
