Mario Party 5 is a video game for the Nintendo GameCube that was released in late 2003. As the name implies, this is the fifth Mario Party video game in the popular series, and the second to be released on the GameCube (the first being Mario Party 4). The game includes three new characters, which are Toad, Boo, and Koopa Kid, as well as most of the characters from previous installations, other than Donkey (whom does appear in Super Duel Mode) and seven boards are in the game.
There are seven boards in this game, which ties Mario Party 9 for the second-highest number of boards in a game. (The original Mario Party has eight.) The boards are: Toy Dream, Future Dream, Pirate Dream, Sweet Dream (which is about candy), Undersea Dream, Rainbow Dream, and Bowser Nightmare.
Donkey Kong does not appear as a playable character, but he does get his own space on the board and then his own board in Mario Party 9.
