Lost in the Shuffle is a 4-Player minigame appearing in Super Mario Party.


All players are shown to be seated in front of a table. On the opposite side of the table is Toad. The camera then zooms into the table until only Toad is seen.


This minigame is based on gambling games such as the cups and balls and the shell game. Toad places some matryoshka dolls resembling the five colored Toads on a table, then shuffles them around faster and faster. Afterwards, the players must select the doll they think has the largest set of dolls, and the first player to select the right doll wins.

On Challenge Road, this is the fourth challenge of Ghostly Hollow and the 38th challenge overall. For both the normal challenge and Master Challenge, the player must get first place.


Toad claps for the winning player, who performs their victory animation, while the losers groan in disappointment.
