Get the Lead Out is a 4-player and Duel minigame in Mario Party DS. The name of the game comes from the idiom meaning to move faster. This minigame appears in Score Scuffle, as the fifth minigame in the set.


In the game, the players are pushing lead outside of a mechanical pencil as fast as they can in ten seconds. Once the time is up, the screen will move over to show grid paper. It is at this time that the distance is measured. The player with the most lead pushed out will win the game and be shown doing his or her victory dance on the grid paper. If a tie is declared, all the players will do their losing animations on the grid paper as "Tie" will appear on the screen.

In Score Scuffle, one cannot achieve 1,000 points, as a player will need to achieve a score of 90.0 to earn 1,000 points, and 89.7 is the maximum score achievable.

If both players get the same score in the Duel variant that breaks the current record, it counts as a new record even though no one won, as it will say "Tie" after the "New Record" fanfare. This also applies to the other Duel minigames with a record system.
