@Grumblevolcano I hear it has a lot of minigames and extra modes, but not a lot of boards.

Though considering how much time I spent with friends and family on the original games which only had about 6 or 7 boards each and very few extra modes, I'm not sure how meaningful this "lack of content" will be.

Apparently this game only has 10 mini-games playable online. What a disappointment.

Given the fact that Mario Tennis Aces, Arms and other games have been getting DLC I would imagine Nintendo will be updating this title as well. Considering I don't own a Wii U anymore and our family has been missing us some Mario Party I am happy it's even here.

@Yellowtails Well, guess I'll just stick with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2 for online a little longer!

If this is true, then I don't know why they even bothered adding online in the first place. Unless they're the 10 best minigames in the world or something.

Despite the disappointing online mode, I'm still excited to try it out later tonight. After Mario Tennis ended up being surprisingly fun, I have more faith that they finally figured out how to make a decent Mario Party again

I was under the impression that people were considering the online mode 'lame' simply because it was "best of 5 rounds of mini-games" instead of an online play-through of the main game?

Speaking of which, can we get confirmation from someone who actually has the game now how many of the mini-games are available for online play?

I believe Nintendo is going to use the Splatoon 2 approach for this game. Every few months for a year, they'll release a new board and maybe some new or returning minigames and characters. I don't believe 4 boards is the final amount.

@Matthew010 It is looking like Nintendo's struggling to get games released at a faster than Wii U pace so the combination of Wii U ports and most of their multiplayer games getting the Splatoon treatment are to prevent Wii U esque droughts.

Just played a 15 turn game and crushed everyone. 8 stars to 1. I really, really like how similar the format is to old Mario Party's. A bit bummed Bowser Spaces are just Bad Luck spaces but they function just the same so its whatever. My big gripe with this game though how characters are tethered to difficulty. Why is that? What if I don't want to play on very hard? It's kind of dumb. Is there anyway to bypass this?

@AlternateButtons You should be able to switch up the characters by talking to Blue Toad in the lobby? I've heard this complaint a bit but I saw some footage changing up the characters. I think they shove those starting characters so you can just hop right in if you want.

Was looking around for information about the game and I came across this:

The picture is the ONLY information I can find about it. Do you think it's legit?

@MasterWario The old games could take several hours if you played on a high turn setting, so it doesn't seem too far fetched.

There's plenty of videos that show actual gameplay and talk about the game. Many of them released by Nintendo.

Looks like it completely destroys all of the Wii/Wii U era Party games. Which are usually regarded as Nintendo's worst games. Regardless of the disappointing lack of Online features, it has great game modes, no car, less luck based mechanics and more cool unique mechanics. If they decide to add online playability to the boards, It could be as big as Mario Kart.

This is the first Mario party in a while that reminds me of the older, more popular titles. I'm enjoying it a lot

I thought Super Mario Party would be a must have game when I saw the game at E3, but I'm hung up on the fact the game currently only has 4 boards. I don't like how that detail was left out of some coverage for the game either as if Nintendo knew that that amount of content was a bad look for the game. I'm still interested in the title, I just need more. I would buy the game at 6 boards as long as those boards aren't behind any paywall. Ideally, given the much smaller board sizes, I would've liked 8. This game was so close to being a day one for me.

Wow. Ok...

So, I like the game, but holy cow is it brutal!!!

I played the classic Mario Party mode with the board, and picked the easy difficulty one. And I was rockin it in the mini games! 78 coins versus 13 of the next highest. But Daisy, oh my gosh. She's a merciless monster unfit for fair competition.

Star, then another star, oh here's an ally, here's ANOTHER ally, here's another star, oh you don't seem to have enough stars, you get to steal one from Peach! Let's make it 4. Warp pipes, mushrooms, shortcuts, get a star and plop the next one 8 spaces in front of her, like here have another! Which of course was no problem with 3 dice being rolled.

But I thought I might be able to score a clutch comeback with my 1 star simply because I had so many coins. Then I hit this minigame where are you had to wager coins, so I put down 20, and the minigame was to press the button when you felt the rumble.

I waited like 10 seconds and felt nothing, and I saw the message on the screen saying to press A. So finally I concluded that the minigame had not yet begun because the game was waiting for me to confirm by pressing A. So I press A.... And immediately I realize my mistake because it plunked me into 4th place. And guess who won? Daisy, of course. So she got my 20 coins and everyone else's and was soon right behind me with coins only she actually had 4 stars versus my 1.

Then I get to the next mini game and I crush it... but I quickly realize the person on my team, reaping the benefits of my beautifully skilled performance, is of course, DAISY. Smiling and giggling as she collected the coins I earned to try to gain a lead on her.

Then we get to the final round and I'm actually in a position to get to the star in my final roll. I had 2 allies that I had just gained in the last few turns (a late game stroke of luck finally in my favor). All I needed was 9 spaces to hit the star, and of course, I roll an 8.

I got completely shut down by Daisy. It was an embarrassment for the ages. And then when we get to the bonus round I thought well, at least I'll have my dignity because I have the most coins, which should put me to 2 stars... Nope. Apparently it doesn't matter who has the most coins, what matters is who collected the most coins. And do you want to know who collected the most coins? Freaking DAISY. Then the next award came up and I don't remember what it was for, because I was in a rage of fury by this point. The only thing I do remember, is that the star went to Daisy. Again.

God help me if that was the easy board for beginners
