Gimme a Sign is a Duel minigame played in Mario Party 7. Its name comes from the plaintive saying "give me a sign," which is a way to request guidance from a higher being.


The players are on four floating rafts, each of which has as image on it. A Shy Guy holds up one or two signs with any of the images that appear on the rafts. The rafts with the images that are on the signs the Shy Guy holds up sink. The signs change more rapidly as the minigame progresses. If one of the players falls into the water, they lose and the other player standing wins. If both players can stay in the minigame for 30 seconds or if both players fall into the water at the same time, the minigame ends in a tie.


Both players stand on the bridge as the winner and loser do their winning and losing animations, respectively. The Shy Guy and Goombas also cheer. If a tie occurs, both players will do their losing animations, and the Shy Guy and Goombas will not cheer.
