Mario Party is a game that was released on the Nintendo 64, and is the first game in the "party" genre. In the game, players go across a board filled with themes and events. Once all the players have moved, a mini game will start, and whomever wins will get a certain amount of coins. The goal of the game is to get the most stars, which can be bought with coins.

The minigames are the highlight of the game. The game has 50 minigames. Each minigame can be found here.

Characters

Boards

There are plenty of boards on the game. Six of the eight boards are based on the playable characters in the games.

  • Mario's Rainbow Castle - This is set way up in the clouds. There are ? mark spaces that, when pressed, will switch the Star granting Toad with Bowser, and vice-versa.
  • Yoshi's Tropical Island - An island owned by Yoshi. The object of the game board is to reunite the blue Yoshi with the pink Yoshi.
  • DK's Jungle Adventure - This course is owned by Donkey Kong. Obstacles include large rolling boulders that make the character about half way around the board to the other side, and Whomps.
  • Peach's Birthday Cake - A large cake with a lottery that has two faces on it - Bowser's and Toad's. If you get Bowser's, you have to go to Bowser, which isn't good. If you get Toad's, you go in the direction of the star.
  • Wario's Battle Canyon - A canyon owned by Wario with multiple cannons.
  • Luigi's Engine Room - A complicated maze type of level owned by Luigi.

Lawsuit

Certain actions in Mario Party caused injuries to the hand, such as blisters, to some players. Nintendo got sued because of this, and was later found guilty. Nintendo paid fines to the families, and also had to supply them with gloves, as not to cause more injuries.

Trivia

  • In the Japanese version of the game Luigi and Wario say "Oh my God" but in other versions they say different sayings like Warios infamous quote "D'oh i missed". [1]
