Sort of Fun is a Co-op minigame appearing in Super Mario Party. Its name is a pun on the verb "sort" and the noun "sort" (a type or kind) or the phrase "sort of" (meaning "to some extent").


Toad throws a baseball to the player above the soccer ball basket. They then pass it to the player above the volleyball basket, who passes it to the player above the baseball basket. They place the baseball in the basket, and the minigame starts.


In this minigame, each player must work together to sort baseballs, volleyballs, soccer balls, and basketballs into their respective baskets. Each ball that is correctly sorted grants one point, while each ball that is incorrectly sorted deducts one point and causes characters to get angry at the offender. The minigame ends once time runs out.

On Challenge Road, this is the sixth challenge of Shell Street and the sixth challenge overall. The goal is eight points for the normal challenge and 10 points for the Master Challenge.
