So, last weekend me and my boyfriend felt like playing something together and started up Mario Party for the N64 for some cozy time in the sofa. Of course I won our round.
It is a really nice game to play, with all the fun little quirks and mini games. You can choose between some of the characters from the Mario franchise. From Peach, Luigi and Yoshi to Wario, Donkey Kong and Mario himself.
It’s like a board game, where your character is a pawn that moves around. You roll the die and your character moves. Along the way, you can end up on different spaces, some good and others are bad. Each round you’ll get to play a mini game. Mini games can be both good and bad depending on how you do. You lose or earn money from each one and there are quite a few.
The boards that you play on are very different from each other. Most are colorful and filled with fun stuff. Each board have a different take on how you’ll play it.
For example on one map, you can plant flowers that steal stars from the other players and on another you can pay roadblocks to force other players to pay way more just to get by them.
The goal of the game is to collect as many stars as you can, the one with the most stars in the end wins. You can buy stars, steal stars and also win stars in the end depending on which awards you get. For example, who had made the most coins in mini games and such.
In the end, it is a well worth game to play with friends. If you haven’t tried it already, you really should.
