Grab Bag first appears in Mario Party as a 4-player mini-game, and Mario Party 2 as a battle mini-game. The name of the mini-game is a play on words of "grab bag" which is a term used when someone wins a bag filled with stuff.


In both games, it involves players pressing the B Button to grab other players' bags and steal their coins (in Mario Party) or mushrooms (in Mario Party 2). The player with the most at the end of the time limit is the winner.
