Picture This is a 4-Player minigame found in Mario Party 7. The minigame's name comes from a phrase that means "imagine this."


The first player is in a room, standing in front of a desk with a book on it. The camera then changes angles as the book opens to the first page.


The characters all have their own picture books; in the middle of the screen is the same picture book. Once the game begins, the book in the middle turns to a random page that is in the books the characters have. They then have to be the first to turn to that specific page and mark it with a bookmark. Marking an incorrect page simply wastes time. The player that marks three correct pages is the winner.

The pages in the book differ each time the game is played. The pages in the book go in sequence that describe a story. There are three different animations: One is a driving car, another is a blooming flower, and the final is two snails caught in a thunderstorm.


The ending to Picture This

The winner performs their victory animation inside the room.
