Match Faker (Hide and Sketch in the British English version) is a General minigame played in Mario Party: Island Tour. The American name derives from "matchmaker", while the British name is derived from the game hide and seek and the word "sketch."


On the top screen it is shown a board with twelve tiles, each one showing a different enemy from the Super Mario franchise. On the bottom screen, there is a paper sheet with the player character's emblem on it.

During fifteen seconds, the players must observe the enemies on the top screen and take notes on the bottom screen to remember the order they appear. After that, the tiles flip over and then there will be three rounds. In each one, a random enemy will be chosen, and players must try to select the tile where it appeared on. If they select the correct tile, they get one point. The player who has the most points after the three rounds are completed wins the game.


  • Stylus – Draw sketch
  • Circle Pad – Move cursor
