Piece Out is a Duel minigame found in Mario Party 5 and a Puzzle minigame in Mario Party DS. The title is based of the saying "peace out". This game features 1-minute, 3-minute, and 5-minute modes; in all modes other than Free Play, the duel is contested under the standard 1-minute mode.


The object of the game is for players to fill their respective space with blocks carried out by a conveyor belt.

There are several types of pieces, all of which come in four colors: Red, Yellow, Green, and Blue. The types of pieces are: single blocks (1 block), double blocks (2 blocks), triple blocks (3 blocks), quadruple blocks (4 blocks) in line form or rectangle form, and double triple blocks (6 blocks that consists of two rows of triple blocks).

If the player picks the wrong block(s) and wants to get rid of them, they must hover the blocks over the Trash Bin area at the bottom of the player's field. This way, the player will get rid of this block and will be able to grab a new one. Once the field is completely filled, the pieces will disappear, giving the player more chances to fill the space and get more points. Points are based on the size of the area of the same-colored blocks, and are not awarded until the space is filled. Filling all the blocks in one color awards 13,500 points in the Mario Party 5 version, and 35,000 points in the Mario Party DS version.

At the end of the time limit, whoever has the most points is declared the winner.

In the Mario Party DS Single Player version, the player has one minute in a level to fill their grid. The player must fill the grid completely to complete a level, and the minigame ends if time runs out in any level. The multiplayer version follows the same rules as Mario Party 5, and allows time settings of 1:00, 3:00, and 5:00.
