Seer Terror is a Rare minigame in Mario Party 6. Its title is a portmanteau of "seer", another name for a fortune teller, and the phrase "sheer terror", meaning "great fear". It is an extra minigame that can be purchased at the Star Bank for 50 Stars.

Introduction[edit]

Bowser welcomes the player into his chamber, and states that he can predict their future. The camera zooms out to show most of the room, and, as the announcer says, "Go!", four ropes fall from above.

Gameplay[edit]

Bowser instructs the player to select one of the ropes and pull on it, so that he can predict their future. He or she has ten seconds to do so. A random event then occurs, most often being something that harms the player.

If it is a good fortune, he looks away in disgust. If it is the meteorite or Bowser bomb fortune, Bowser pumps his fist. If it is the black hole fortune, Bowser yells as he is sucked in.

Controls[edit]

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules"Bowser will peer into his crystal ball and predict your future! All you have to do is choose a rope and pull on it."
  • Advice"There are good fortunes and bad fortunes...which will yours be?"

Trivia[edit]

  • Falling basins are a popular motif in Japanese slapstick comedy which likely led to their inclusion in this minigame.
  • In the info box for this mini-game, Bowser says the phrase "Ahh...I can see your future...and THIS is what I see." just before a giant Bowser statue falls on Luigi. Bowser never says this phrase when playing the minigame itself, instead saying the phrase "Ahhh...I can see your pathetic future! It's all coming into focus..."
  • When the player falls down the pit, Bowser might say "I predict you will fall head over heals." However, the idiom is actually "head over heels".
