Book It! is a 2-vs.-2 minigame in Mario Party DS. Its name is a pun on an expression that means "to run quickly."


In this game, the player and their partner must reach the top of a large stack of books. To do this, the player must press A Button, B Button, Y Button, and X Button in the aforementioned order as quickly as possible to lift up their partner; after two cycles, their teammate must then do the same. The first team to reach the top wins.


  • A Button B Button Y Button X Button – Move your partner
