I am trying to make a game with an Arduino that sends a small electrical shock to the user if something is done incorrectly. How would I do this with an Arduino?

In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, however in practice there are many...

very carefully ....!

You need to describe more about when and how the shock plays a role in the game.
The Arduino itself cannot generate a shock (AFAIK) and thus you should search for an external shock generator that can be switched on/off by the arduino (which is rather trivial)

It is difficult to make the shock consistent if you want it to be significant, due to varying resistance of skin and human sensitivity.  Perhaps you need to calibrate the voltage for different individuals.  Usually about 40-50V is good for a warning.  Don't ask how I know all this...
