Sort Stack is a single-player minigame found in Mario Party Advance.


The character leaps onto a cart in front of the bookshelf. A sweatdrop appears inside a text bubble above them before the minigame starts.


The player has to sort all the books by placing them on the proper shelf, as many of the books are mixed-up.

The books must be sorted by color, with red being the top shelf, blue the third, yellow the second, and green the bottom. The player is only able to hold two books at a time. In Shroom City, the player must organize one shelf in sixty seconds to win. In Play Land, the player must organize as many shelves as possible within the time limit. Additionally, organizing a shelf adds a number of seconds to the time limit, depending on the length of the shelf; it is three seconds for a three-section shelf, six for two, and nine for a full-length shelf.

The player also earns points every time a shelf is cleared.
