Stampede is a minigame in Mario Party 8. It is a Challenge minigame (one player) and the Wii Remote is held straight with the buttons facing the player.


A Shy Guy is seen placing a small stack of blank paper on a podium, on the right of which is a stamper and on the left of which is a container to collect the stamped sheets of paper and a counter. The player steps up to the podium, picks up the stamper, and the game begins.


The player must push the Wii Remote downward to stamp a blank sheet of paper with his or her emblem.

If the player is able to successfully stamp twenty sheets of paper with their emblem, they win. Occasionally, the player will come across a sheet of paper with a picture of Bowser's face on it randomly positioned among the other blank sheets of paper. The player must press the A Button or B Button button to move these sheets aside and keep stamping. If the player does stamp a Bowser sheet, they lose two points.

Since there is only twenty seconds, the player must be extremely quick in order to stamp all twenty sheets of paper.


If the player wins, they will do their victory pose while the crowd cheers along with Shy Guy. If they lose, the player will sulk.
