Dress for Success is a 4-player minigame in Mario Party DS. Its name comes from the term "dress for success", meaning one should dress one's best for work.


The player sees four cards, each with a character's body. The four cards flip over and shuffle. The player then uses the Stylus to select a card. The player gets a point for correctly guessing the matching card. The first player to get three points wins. The game also ends after four rounds, in which case the player(s) with the most points will win. The character cards include all of the playable characters in the game, but only the four characters currently playing are featured.

  • Mario's body has the buttons vertically.
  • Luigi's body has an extra button in the middle.
  • Wario's body has two extra buttons underneath the normal ones.
