Attention Grabber is a Duel minigame in Mario Party 8. Its name refers to something or someone that effectively draws attention to itself.


The camera will be zoomed out on an island, and then will zoom in through the forest, onto the beach, where Player 1 is standing. Then the screen will divide up, and the game will begin.


There is a ship in the distance, and the players are marooned on an island. The objective is to get the attention of the ship, and make it come to shore faster than the other. The player can wave their hands simply by waving the Wii Remote. The first player to get the ship to shore wins.


The winner will swim towards the ship to get on board. If no one gets their boat closer to them, they both will do their losing animations.

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules"Get the rescue ship to the shore first by waving as wildly as you can!"
  • Hint"Fast, small hand movements work better than larger, broader ones."
