    -Abandon Ship-
    Your boat is sinking, and you need to get climb to the top.  Watch out for the 
    fish that jump up at you, and the pieces of wood sticking out of the poles.  Be 
    the first one to climb to the top before anyone else does, and you win the game!
    
    -Shy Guy Says-
    This game is just like Simon Says, hold up the same color flag that Shy Guy

    In this game you hit a little block with your head and try to get Toad's face  
    to show, you will be raised one level after each time you have Toad's face show  
    This will get pretty difficult after the first three hits, you will probably 
    have to start guessing.  Be the first one to be raised to level 5 and you win!
    
    -Shell Shocked-
    This game is one of my favorite mini-games in Mario Party 2.  You are a little 
    tank, and you have 2 lives, what you do is shoot your opponents, and each time 
    you hit them, they lose a life, and if you get hit, you lose a life.  Be the 
    last one standind, and you win!

    the game!
    
    -Hot Rope Jump-
    In this game, you jump over a rope of fire, it is just like jump rope, watch 
    out, because it can get really fast, and you've got to time your jumps right.  
    Be the person to last the longest without getting hit by the rope and you win 
    the game!
    
    -Hexagon Heat-
    In Hexagon Heat, Toad will raise a colored flag, whichever color flag he holds 
    up, get on that same color hexagon, try not to jump too much, because you might 
    bounce off of someone and go into the lava.  Be the person to last the longest 
    and you win the game!
    
    -Bumper Balls-
    This game is also one of my favorites in Mario Party 2.  You are standing on a 
    ball, and what you have to do is knock your opponents off the edge of the ice, 
    island, or bricks, depending on which scene you are at.  Be the last one 
    standing and you win the game!

    Again, be the last one standing and you win the game!
    
    -Mecha Marathon-
    This is one of my least favorite mini-games in Mario Party 2.  You have 10

    little flying toys.  Be the person to have your flying toy fly the farthest and 
    you win the game!

    and mushrooms that are just planted in the ground.  Be the person to have the 
    number closest to the right amount and you win the game!
    
    -Honeycomb Havoc-
    In this game you hit a blick with your head, and take either 1 or 2 
    fruits/coins, make sure you don't get the honeycomb though, or you're out.  Be 
    the last one standing and you win!
    
    -Slot Car Derby-
    In Slot Car Derby, your car is in a slot, and you try to win the race, don't go
