Same Is Lame is a 4-Player minigame in Mario Party 6.


The player runs across the area, then jumps down a small set of stairs and then onto the podium. The view then changes to the one shown in-game.


In this minigame, every player has a podium to stand on. During each round, players have five seconds to press the B Button, A Button, R Button, or L Button button. If the results show that a player's choice is different from the others', that player's podium rises. Nothing happens to any players that have pressed the same button. As long as there is time left during the round, the players may change their choice by pressing another button. The first player to choose a different button three times wins, though multiple players may win.


The losers' (or loser's) platform(s) head(s) back down to the bottom as the camera zooms in on the winner(s). A spotlight then shines on the winner(s), and confetti rains down on them as they perform their victory animation(s). In some cases, losers can be seen doing their losing animations.
