Seer Terror is a Rare minigame in Mario Party 6. Its title is a portmanteau of "seer," which is 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.

In the infobox for this minigame, 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..."

Gameplay[edit]

Bowser welcomes the player into his chamber and states that he can predict their future. As the announcer says "Go!" four ropes fall from above. Bowser instructs the player to select one of the four ropes and pull on it within ten seconds. Each fortune is accompanied by a random event, usually something that harms the player.
