Messy Memory is a 4-player minigame in Mario Party 3.


Before the minigame starts, players have to try to memorize the items' location with the few seconds they have. After that, many Toads come onto the screen and tamper with the toys behind a cloud of white smoke. Once done, it is revealed that they knocked down some of the items, leaving some in their proper place.

When the minigame starts, the players have to lift the item and place it back on the shelf then their proper spot in a matter of 30 seconds. The better the player memorized the item's location, the more accurate the placement. Once done, the player can close their curtains - and open the curtains if they feel uncertain about the placement so they can change at anytime - and wait for the timer to run out. When the timer runs down to 0, the game ends, all the curtains closes no matter if the player is done or not. Then all the curtains reopen, and the game shows the correct placement of each item from left to right.

The player who puts the most items in their proper spot wins.
