10 to Win is a Free-For-All minigame in Mario Party 9. The name of this minigame is a pun on "tend to win."


The players' platforms rising

The minigame is set in a game show. First, the camera shows the players, then pans to the board with all 12 cards with different outcomes. The cards flip face up, then flip back down and shuffle themselves. Before the game starts, a "spinning" arrow selects who goes first, and the chosen character will wave.


The object of the game is to be the first player to earn ten points by flipping up cards. Each card can increase the score of the player who drew it, all of their opponents, the player in first, the player in last, or everyone. The highest value of any of the 12 cards is a +3.


These are all the possible cards in the game.

  • You +1
  • You +2
  • You +3
  • 1st +1
  • 1st +2
  • Last +2
  • Last +3
  • Rival(s) +1
  • Rival(s) +2
  • Rival(s) +3
  • All +1
  • All +2


  • You – Exclusively the player who chooses it.
  • 1st – The player(s) currently in first.
  • Last – The player(s) currently in last. If everyone is tied, no one moves.
  • Rival(s) – Everyone except the player who chooses it.
  • All – Everyone, including the player who chooses it.


The winner strikes a victory pose as the lights around their platform flash in a pattern.
