Same Is Lame is a 4-Player minigame in Mario Party 6.


The first player runs across the area, then jumps down a small set of stairs and then onto the podium. The view then changes to the one shown in-game.


In this minigame, every player has a podium to stand on. During each round, players have five seconds to press the  ,  ,  , or   button. As long as there is time left during the round, the players can change their choices by pressing another button. If the results show that a player's choice is different from the others', that player's podium rises. Nothing happens to any players that have pressed the same button as another player or did not press a button within the time limit. The first player to choose a different button three times wins, though multiple players can win. If ten rounds pass without anyone reaching three points, the minigame ends in a tie.


The losers'/loser's platform(s) head(s) back down to the bottom as the camera zooms in on the winner(s). A spotlight then shines on the winner(s), and confetti rains down on them as they perform their victory animation(s). In some cases, losers can be seen doing their losing animations.
