Mario Party

released on Dec 18, 1998

Every game in the main series has a standard Party Mode in which up to four players play through a board, trying to collect as many stars as possible. In every turn, each player rolls a die and progresses on the board, which usually has branching paths. Coins are primarily earned by performing well in a minigame played at the end of each turn. On most boards, players earn stars by reaching a star space and purchasing a star for a certain amount of coins. The star space appears randomly on one of several pre-determined locations and moves every time a star is purchased, usually occupying a blue space.
Every Mario Party contains at least 50 to almost 110 minigames with a few different types. Four-player games are a free-for-all in which players compete individually. In 2-on-2 and 1-on-3 minigames, players compete as two groups, cooperating to win, even though they are still competing individually in the main game. Some minigames in Mario Party are 4-player co-op, even though it doesn't say it. In most situations, winners earn ten coins each.

The worst Mario Party but also a great Mario Party.


very memorable minigames and boards, not the best ones of the series but on the top 5


minigames are stinky and like half the boards are stinky.


This game plays like a bunch of people who don't know exactly how to play Mario Party so they make up the rules as they go along.

Half the minigames are pure shit. Why are there team based 4 player games? Why are there 1v3 games where the 3 literally can't do anything, like the pipe choosing one?

Mario Party did not start out with its formula properly refined.

At least the boards are good.


Many friends and alliances were broken with this game even still to this day.
