Peek-n-Sneak is a Bowser minigame found in Mario Party Advance. Its name is a pun on "peek and shriek."

In the Shroom City mode, the player plays this minigame at Bowser Pad after giving Bowser what he truly wants. Winning earns the player the minigame and the Gaddget Shroom Bloom.


The character runs into the area the minigame is played in before the minigame starts. Once it does, they immediately run to the first pillar.


The player must sneak past all the Koopa Kids in the area by walking past them while they are not looking. The player can hide from the Koopa Kids by staying behind the pillars. The player has 99 seconds to sneak past all the Koopa Kids. When sneaking, the player can either walk past or hold down B Button to dash past. Each Koopa Kid color represents their special property: green Koopa Kids does not have one; red Koopa Kids will turn around more quickly and have a shorter period before they turn again; and blue Koopa Kids will stay on the lookout for longer than the other two types. Additionally, there are wider spaces containing a Bowser Statue between pillars, which occasionally have two Koopa Kids on lookout. Sneaking past 10 Koopa Kids rewards the player with a 20-second time bonus. If one of the Koopa Kids sees the player running by, the minigame ends and the player loses.
