    I. Introduction
    ____________
    
    Mario Party 4 contains a series of unlockable "presents" that fit the game's
    overall birthday theme. Most of them are obtained through Story Mode, but a 
    few are received by clearing certain "goals" in the mini-games. Still others
    are only available by meeting certain conditions. This guide is designed to
    help you complete the game with all of the secret presents. If you have any
    questions concerning this guide or aspects of the game, you can e-mail me
    at Nnfan125@aim.com. I'm also an active user of the GameFAQS message board 
    and my username for that is Nfan13. Please enjoy this guide and get to work
    on these presents! 
    
    
    II. Frequently Asked Questions
    ______________________________
    
    Q: What exactly ARE the presents?
    A: In Mario Party 4, there is a feature called the Present Room. Here, you
    can unlock various items that go with a character in the game. There is a 
    room for every playable character and six items you can unlock for them.
    
    Q: How long does it take to unlock all these presents?
    A: From my experience it takes 40+ hours of total gameplay for the average,
    not-so-lucky gamer. Keep in mind a lot of Mario Party 4 is luck, so it can
    widely range in time. It took me a much longer time, but mostly due to the
    fact I had to get information and re-look things up.
    
    Q: Is there any real benefit to unlocking all the presents?
    A: Actually, there is (I'll explain that later), but also keep in mind that
    unlocking all the presents is the only real way to fully complete the game.
    
    Q: Who's your favorite Mario Party 4 character?
    A: Yoshi all the way! ^_^
