Ion the Prize is a Duel minigame that appears in Mario Party 8. This minigame's name is a pun of the phrase, "eyes on the prize."


In this minigame, the two players are in machines and must put the green and pink balls into their correct containers. The pacing of the balls pick up as time goes on and the players must be careful on how they sort the balls. The player with the most points at the end wins.

When the game ends, the winner's capsules retract as a fireball hologram appears above his/her head. The winner waves or poses at the screen depending on which character is playing the mini game.
