Pair 'Em is a gambling minigame in Mario Party Advance.

In Shroom City, this minigame is played at the Pyramid, where Kamek has the player play the minigame. If they win, they obtain the minigame.


The player needs to match cards to win coins, but they need at least one trio of each picture. The Lakitu's Cloud gives the player two coins, the Yoshi Egg gives three, the Mushroom gives four, the Fire Flower gives five, and the Star gives ten. Occasionally, ? cards appear, and what they represent is not revealed until the cards are placed down. If all the cards are put down and matched, then the numbers of coins they are worth are doubled for all suits. The minigame ends when all cards have been placed or when every space has been filled. In Shroom City, the player is given 30 coins to start with. The minigame is won by obtaining at least one coin more than started with.
