Who cares if Mario is brought beyond his persona?
10 June 2007 | by The_Light_TritonSee all my reviews

If you're a true gamer, you like playing games that are perfect to the essence. however, if you're a casual gamer, games that are tons of fun are the way to go.

Mario and some of his friends are at a party, on a gaming board, playing a game to see who's the best. they collect stars and coins and cross over spaces like a board game. at the end of each turn, they play a mini-game to earn more coins and to move the game along. in the end, the person with the most stars wins.

personally, i found this game extremely fun, even after you get everything. it's a game where you can have fun with people that regularly don't like video games (my dad and that game where the characters roll on giant balls, trying to knock each other off a platform is a great example) there's many types of mini games. also, Personally, this should have been innovated during the 16 bit era.

it's a sweet way to throw a party, or just to kill a rainy Saturday afternoon.
