Chance Time Space (also known as ! Space[1]) are among the rarest type of spaces in the Mario Party series. There are generally only one to three of them on each game board. They are called ! Spaces in the first Mario Party game, and players who land on it must play Chance Time. Also, in boards where the Star moves after a player purchases one, the ! Space often takes the spot where the Star has been. In Mario Party 4, they are called Fortune Spaces, and players landing on it played Reversal of Fortune, nearly identical to Chance Time. In Mario Party 5, these spaces are Chance Spaces, and they appear only if players place Chance Capsules on a Blue or Red Space. Anyone lands there must play Chance Roulette, an event again nearly identical to Chance Time.

In Mario Party 6, they are referred to as Miracle Spaces. All names and renames of both the space and the event are essentially the same, differing in name only.

The Spin Space in Mario Party 9, the Steal Space from Mario Party 10, and the Event Spaces from Super Mario Party resemble earlier iterations of the Miracle Space, but have different functions.

After a long absence, Miracle Spaces return in Mario Party Superstars, with their name and function being reverted back to that of the first three games. They were also redesigned to look like two arrows looking to the opposite direction of each other, likely to avoid any confusion with the Event Spaces.[2]
