Shy Guy Shuffle is a Free-for-All minigame appearing in Mario Party 10.


The Shy Guys reveal the donuts they are carrying, and then they conceal them with dish lids. They then shuffle around, and when they stop, the players have to choose the one they think has the most donuts. The number of donuts the player chooses is how many points the player earns. In the third round, the Shy Guys line up in front of the screen and jump from side to side to shuffle themselves, making it harder to keep track of them. After the third round, the player with the highest score wins the minigame.


After the third round is over, a scene of the characters happily eating the donuts together is shown before it cuts to the results screen. Each character has their own animation:

  • Mario takes a bite out of one donut and then takes a bite out of another.
  • Luigi takes a bite out of a donut and lifts it into the air.
  • Peach takes a bite out of her donut and then thinks.
  • Daisy takes a bite out of her donut, smiles, and rocks from side to side.
  • Wario keeps taking bites out of his two donuts from left to right.
  • Waluigi keeps taking bites out of his two donuts from left to right and then sits contentedly.
  • Yoshi takes a bite out of the donut and then realizes how good it tastes.
  • Rosalina takes a bite out of her donut and then laughs.
  • Toad takes a bite out of the donut, starts jumping around, and then continues eating it.
  • Spike drops a donut into his mouth and eats it.
  • Toadette bounces excitedly, then takes a bite out of the donut and goes back to bouncing.
  • Donkey Kong drops a donut into his mouth, eats it, and repeats for another donut.
