Flippin' Cards! is a minigame that appears in Paper Mario: Color Splash. It can be played by entering the Spinning-Door after matching the blue panels.

The minigame is a memory game similar to Memory Match from Mario Party, as the floor is laid out with three rows of four ? Panels. The objective is to flip the panels over using Mario's hammer to find matching pairs of Battle Cards within the time limit, which varies depending on the Spinning-Door's location. For each pair Mario finds, the card will be added to his inventory, and two seconds will be added to the clock. If Mario flips two non-matching panels, he will be stunned for a brief moment before the panels flip back over. Ten of the twelve ? Panels are Battle Cards, while the remaining two affect the timer: one adds five seconds when flipped over; the other subtracts ten seconds.
