Paper Mario The Origami King Shy Guys Game Show

This Shy Guys quiz game consists of four categories with three difficulty levels. The first level is worth 10 points, the second level 30 points and the last level grants 50 points.

However, you cannot choose which category or level you want to play. These are chosen at random from the game.

The four categories with detailed information are:

Ring Scramble

Ring Scramble requires you to solve a ring-based picture puzzle in a limited time.

This puzzle tests ring control and visual memory. The image is initially shown but is then scrambled by rotating the rings.

You will need to rotate the rings to their original position to form the image.

The time limit and the number of rings you can move depend on the puzzle level.

  • Level 1– 40 seconds, 4 ring movements
  • Level 2– 60 seconds, 7 ring movements
  • Level 3– 60 seconds, 6 ring movements

Race ‘n’ Place

In this puzzle, eyesight and memory are tested by remembering the positions of the runners at the end of the race.

At the end of the race, the runners are placed in the ring with other random characters.

You need to place the runners in the corresponding positions by moving the rings.

The difficulty of each level decides the number of runners to be placed, the number of runners with random characters and the time limit.

  • Level 1– 1 runner to place, 4 characters (No Randoms), 40 seconds
  • Level 2– 1 runner to place, 6 characters (2 Random), 40 seconds
  • Level 3– 4 runners to place, 9 characters (5 Randoms), 55 seconds

Ninji skills

This puzzle focuses on your dynamic vision tracking by mixing random boxed characters and ninja in rings. You must then place the canned ninjas on the same lane.

You can use your finger to track ninjas or you can track non-Ninji characters in the higher levels.

Each level has its own number of ninjas mixed with random characters and a limited time.

  • Level 1– 1 Ninji (4 Randoms), 40 seconds
  • Level 2– 2 Ninja (4 Random), 40 seconds
  • Level 3– 4 Ninja (2 Random), 60 seconds

Bath Math

Bath Math focuses on two main things, Memory and Math Skills.

The memory part takes you to a hot spring where the Goombas enter and leave the pool. The hot spring starts with zero Goombas inside.

Eventually you have to keep track of how many Goombas are inside the hot spring.

Difficulty level 3 makes it more difficult by blocking the view with steamy clouds.

The mathematical part takes place inside the ring made up of numbers and two symbols, Addition and Subtraction.

Within a limited time, you are required to create an equation that is equal to the number of Goombas that remain within the hot spring at the end of the sequence.

The amount of numbers available in the ring varies according to the difficulty level of the puzzle.

  • Level 1– 13 numbers, 40 seconds
  • Level 2– 11 numbers, 40 seconds
  • Level 3– 10 numbers, 60 seconds

Unexpected death

After earning 100 points, you are prompted to take part in a sudden death challenge. You can skip this challenge if you want or risk for a trophy.

You will be inserted into a cannon and asked to complete the lyrics of a song you have listened to earlier in the game. There are three different songs that may be required of you to complete the lyrics of.

The answers to all three questions are:

  1. Aflame (Burning Song of the Sandpaper Desert )
  2. Burly (Whispering Woods Song )
  3. Sculler (Eddy River Song )

Clearing this level will reward you with a Spring of Rainbows invitation and a collectible trophy.
