Boo-ting Gallery is a 2-Vs.-2 minigame found in Mario Party 8. It is based on the game Luigi's Mansion and takes place in a mansion similar to Luigi's Mansion. Its name is a pun on "shooting gallery". The minigame is also present in the arcade game, Mario Party Fushigi no Korokoro Catcher. This minigame is similar to Spider Stomp from Mario Party 7.


One team of two characters runs up a path leading to the gate of a haunted mansion with some Red Boos outside. The Red Boos vanish, the screen splits in two to accommodate both teams, and the game begins.


Two teams will enter the mansion. In both teams there are two characters. The teams both shoot all the Red Boos in their way so they can keep on walking to the mansion. The team that destroys all Red Boos first wins.

First the teams will be outside the mansion. After defeating the Boos, they will go inside the mansion and reach the foyer. After the team defeats all Boos in the foyer, they will walk to the stairs but the floor beneath them gives way and the team falls into the underground. When a team reaches the underground, they will look around and then a giant Red Boo appears. The team that defeats the giant Red Boo first wins.


The winning team will then appear outside the mansion and both characters will do their winning pose. The losing team's silhouettes can be seen inside the mansion through the mansion's windows running around the mansion while being chased by a Red Boo.
