Coin Cache is a 4-Player coin-collecting minigame found in Mario Party 5.


The four players exit Peach's Castle in the background and run to the stage itself.


The goal of this minigame is to collect as many coins as possible by smashing the Brick Blocks that contain them. Three rows of Brick Blocks move from left to right. They can also be used as platforms to reach higher blocks. Brick Blocks that contain nothing are destroyed when hit. Brick Blocks that contain a single coin transform into Empty Blocks when hit. Brick Blocks that contain multiple coins can be hit until they are empty, turning into Empty Blocks. The three rows of blocks stop moving occasionally and start moving in the opposite direction a few seconds later. If players step off one side of the screen, they will appear on the other side in a similar way to the gameplay of Mario Bros. Players can also jump on their opponents to decrease their jump height temporarily. Despite what the rules state, all the players win the minigame as long as they collect at least one coin.


The players perform their victory animations. If a player did not collect a coin, they do their losing animation.
