Story

Mario and his friends have gotten together and are having fun when they start to argue over which of them is the biggest "Super star". Toad suggests that they go to Mushroom Village to find out who is the Super Star. They all take a Warp Pipe there to go on adventures and find out who really is the best.

Gameplay

Mario Party is a board game in which players take turns rolling dice to move toward the star, trying to collect as many as possible before the end of the game. On the game board are various types of spaces, each with their own effects, both positive and negative. After each player takes their turn, a minigame is played, after which the winner earns ten coins. There are over fifty minigames total, with different types of minigames to play. While the player must head to Toad's space to get a star, Bowser also appears on every board, and will cause a negative effect, either to the one player or to all players.

Trivia

  • When playing certain minigames that require excessive spinning of the control stick, many players would use the palms of their hands to spin the stick faster than they could with their thumbs or fingers (Nintendo's recommended course of play). This and the build of the Nintendo 64 controller's Control Stick led to many players developing blisters and other injuries on their hands. In 2000, after several legal complaints were filed, Nintendo of America agreed to commit $80 million to provide protective gloves (up to four per household) to injured players[1]as well as players who had proof of purchase of this game, to prevent future injury.
  • Nintendo of America sent a sarcastic certificate of appreciation (signed by at the time chairman Howard Lincoln and founder and president Minoru Arakawa) to video game publication Game Informer in response to their negative reviews of both this game and Mario Party 2.[2]
