Scratch 'Em is a gambling minigame found in Mario Party Advance.

Scratch 'Em is played at the Town Game Room A in Shroom City. Monty Mole, who is an unlucky gamer, wishes for the player to win this minigame for him. Victory allows the player to keep the minigame.


The player must bet coins on the possible chance of getting a match in a scratch-off game. After placing a bet, the player must scratch off five spaces on the card; they win coins equal to the number given for each set. In Shroom City, the player wins by obtaining one more coin than started with, which is 30. The game also ends whenever the player runs out of coins to wager.
