Shy Guy's Shuffle City is one of seven boards in Mario Party: Island Tour. This board is unique in that it requires 3 or 4 human players. Like in Kamek's Carpet Ride, players use cards to move around the board instead of rolling a Dice Block. From the second round onward, players must take a card from an opponent before moving. There's also a Bowser Card that must be avoided, as every three rounds, a Bowser Penalty will affect whoever has the Bowser Card. At the end of the board, the player will have to draw either two Champion Cards or four "Sorry!" Cards. If the player succeeds in drawing the Champion Card, then they will automatically win the board. If a "Sorry!" Card is drawn, then that player misses their chance to win, and has to go back three spaces. Each time a "Sorry!" card is drawn, that card gets discarded for the next attempt, giving the next player a greater chance of winning. If there are no "Sorry!" cards, then the next player to get to the end of the board wins, as long as that player doesn't have the Bowser Card. If the player makes it to the end of the board and is holding the Bowser Card, then they are not be able to play the final challenge and is forced to move back three spaces upon reaching the Dead-End Space. A player holding the Bowser Card automatically gets last place at the end of play.

When playing with three players, two cards each of 1, 2, 3, and 4, plus the Bowser Card, are dealt to the players every three rounds. With four players, there are two 1 Cards and three cards each for 2, 3, and 4, plus the Bowser Card. 0, 5, and 6 Cards can only be obtained from minigames.


  • American English: Outwit your opponents and avoid the dreaded Bowser Card to win this race!
  • British English: Swap cards with your opponents for a card game with a twist. Don't be left with the Bowser Card!

Yellow Toad Quotes[edit]

After picking a card, the Yellow Toad says one of the following:

  • If card is a 5 or 6: "What's so funny, <player>? Mind sharing the joke with the rest of us? You're not supposed to grin when you get good cards, <player>."
  • If card is a 3 or 4: "Either something good happened to <player>, or it's an act. Either way, I'm suspicious."
  • If card is a 2 or 1: "Hey everyone! Look at <player> trying to pretend like nothing happened."
  • If card is a 0 or Bowser: "<player>, is everything OK? Is something bothering you?"
