Don't merge 5-10

Not only those two have very similar names, they are also the same game generally. One is just endless, I suppose.

  1. LeftyGreenMario (talk) Other similar minigames are being proposed to get merged; why not this one?
  2. Zero777 (talk) I am Zero! Same game, same article. Zero signing out.
  3. BabyLuigiOnFire (talk) It should also be noted that they have similarly identical names! :0 Per all
  4. Super-Yoshi (talk) They are both the same concept, just one goes on infinitively.
  5. Mario4Ever (talk) Per all.


  1. Marioguy1 (talk) - Same? They are not the same. Similar, yes, they are similar, same, no, never. They have several slight differences in the gameplay and the game itself has them listed as different. If we, the wiki that covers the game, don't follow the example of the game in question, I don't know what we've come to.
  2. Fawfulfury65 (talk) Similar, but not the same. Per MG1.
  3. RAP (talk) Per MG1.
  4. Fuzzipede27 (talk) They have atleast 2 differnces. one of these are harder to beat.
  5. Twentytwofiftyseven (talk) Per all.
  6. Bloc Partier (talk) - Per all.
  7. Soler (talk) Per all.
  8. Baby Mario Bloops (talk) - Even if they have similar names, and similiar ablities, they aren't. Take the this ttp as in example. We didn't merge those two articles together. Sorry for another comparison, but it really helps show my point.
  9. Edofenrir (talk) - Since we agreed to not merge some of the other game mini-game articles, this one should also be left alone to enure we are staying consistent.
  10. Superboo922 (talk) Per all.


Pair-a-Gone and On is a game Luigi offers in his casino in Super Mario 64 DS that is identical to Pair-a-Gone except that it goes on forever. -- That is the first sentence of the Pair-a-Gone and On article. Unless this statement is incorrect, I have just proven that Pair-a-Gone and Pair-a-Gone and On are one and the same. Mario4Ever (talk)

Yeah, but SM64DS marks them both as separate games. Fawfulfury65 (talk)

Pair-a-Gone and On is one of Luigi's minigames found in Super Mario 64 DS. It has similar gameplay to one of Luigi's other minigames, Pair-a-Gone. -- That is the first sentence of the New Pair-a-Gone and On article, it is more accurately displayed now. Thank you for alerting me to that and I believe that I have just proven them different. Marioguy1 (talk)
What differentiates Pair-a-Gone from Pair-a-Gone and On? Anything other than the fact that the latter is endless? Mario4Ever (talk)
The game itself has a list of its minigames, in the list, there is Pair-a-Gone...and then there's Pair-a-Gone and On. If you tap Pair-a-Gone. So, I'd say that other than the fact that one is endless, the game itself differenciates them. Marioguy1 (talk)
Logically speaking, then, their only difference is that one is endless, which makes the game give it a separate name because minigames are not organized by difficulty. It's a harder version of the same game, and that is reason enough to cease their separation. Mario4Ever (talk)
Exacty! However the last sentence is a matter of debate. Harder or not, the game has given them a different name. Which is enough to give them their own articles. Marioguy1 (talk)
