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

Duel minigame version

In the minigame, the players are pushing lead out of mechanical pencils as fast as they can in 10 seconds. Once the time is up, the screen moves over to show grid paper. It is at this time that the distances are measured. The player with the most lead pushed out wins the minigame.

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

However, if the current record is broken while everyone gets the same score in both variants, it counts as a new record even though no one won, as the screen says "Tie" after the "New Record" fanfare. This also applies to the other 4-Player/Duel minigames with a record system.


The winner does their victory dance on the grid paper. If a tie is declared, all the players do their losing animations on the grid paper.
