Maplestory Mini Games

Maplestory contains a lot of mini games, some of which need to be purchased from the cash shop, while others require specific in-game items. These mini games can either be single player, or between multiple players, although usually they don't have any rewards and are intended to be just for fun and as an alternative to the rest of the main content.

Omok

Match Cards

To participate in this mini game, two players are needed, one of which needs to make a deck out of 100 monster cards in order to start this feature. After collecting the cards, the game begins. Players get to take a look at the cards and memorise them before they are placed facedown and players have to guess which cards are where, until they fail, which is then up to the next player to guess which card is which.

Gachapon & Pigmy

In exchange for the ticket, players have a chance of obtaining some of the rarest items in the game. And the items vary depending on which town you exchange the ticket in. This feature varies between different versions of Maplestory, for example in Global Maplestory, all the rewards are the same regardless of the town players use the Gachapon ticket in.

Fishing King

Monster Game Arcade

This feature is also a lottery type of mini game, where players need to locate a Monster Game Arcade in any town and then purchase a monster game ball from the cash shop, in order to start. Afterwards the ball is launched inside the machine and bounces around until it lands in a hole that determines the prize. Some of the rewards are exclusive to this mini game and are highly sought after. This mini game is influenced by the real life 'Pachinko' machines which are popular in Japan.
