==========================================================================
Introduction
==========================================================================

   As is you've already know this is another Mario game. But it isn't like
The others, it's way different. Instead of going on wild adventure you have
to play a board games. But that's not all you also get to play fun little
mini-games also. After this game was release they make a sequel to it. But
this on is the best one of all (in my opinion).
   There are 40 mini-games you could play. Each one has it's own strategy
and challenges. It can be hard to beat some mini-games sometime but that's
why I made the FAQ. I'll tell you everything you need to know about the
mini-games. From all the mini-game Island to all min game rules. Thanks
for checking out another FAQ by me and good luck on the game. :)


==========================================================================
Controls
==========================================================================
  There are lot kinds of controls. Some are for the board some are for
The menu and even mini-games. Each mini-game got its own controls but don't
worry I'll tell you all of them.

*Basic Controls*
------------------

Start: Use start to Pause the game and display the Pause Screen

Control Stick: Use the Control Stick to move the Cursor, scroll through
maps and move between menu selections.

A Button: Press a button to confirm something or hit the Dice Block.

B Button: Use the B Button to cancel or return to the previous screen. On
the board you can also use it to view the Maps.

R Button: Show Map View Mode.

C Buttons: Once when a mini-game is about to start press the C Buttons to 
view tips and hints and as well as the controls for the mini-game.


==========================================================================
Story
==========================================================================

This is the story straight out of the manual.

Mario looked around and smiled. Throwing a party had been an excellent idea. It
had been a long time since they had all gotten together. All his friends were
there: Luigi, Peach, Toad, Yoshi - even Wario and Donkey Kong. They laughed
and talked about all the adventures they had shared together in the past.
But what was there to do now?

The conversation turned to their dreams for the future. Amazingly, they all
envisioned the same thing...

To become a Super star upon whom everyone in the world could rely.

Then Wario asked, "Which one of us is the biggest Super star?"

"I am!" "It's me!" they all shouted. The gang couldn't come to an agreement 
because they each wanted to be the best. They needed to prove once and for all
who truly was number one?

Suddenly, Toad had an idea. "Isn't a Super star someone who helps others when
they're in trouble?"

Everyone realized he was right. Then Toad told them about a Warp Pipe in
Mushroom Village that could take you anywhere you wanted to go. Surely there 
were people on the other side of that Pipe who needed their help.

They all ran as fast as they could to Mushroom Village and jumped into the
Warp Pipe. But none of them knew what exciting adventures awaited them on
the other side...


==========================================================================
In Game Options
==========================================================================

There are a couple of places you can go to in Mushroom Village. Here are all
of them and their description.

Option House
--------------
What to change your current audio or start a new game? Well you can go here
to do so. You can also listen to your favorite game songs as well as listen
to your  parrot (if you bought one) too.

Mushroom Bank
--------------
If you bought any items and you want to use it here's the place to do so.
You can also check how many coins and stars you have too.

Mushroom Shop
--------------
Here is where you can buy items to help you on the boards and to have some
fun with. Check out the items section to see which items you can buy as well
as there use and cost too.

Mini-Game House
----------------
There are a lot of things you can do in here. You can test to see how fast
you rotate, buy and play your favorite Mini-Game and even check out a new
Board that is not found anywhere but here.

Warp Pipe
----------
This is where all the exciting adventures begin. You can select and play
your favorite board here to see who the Super Star is.

Raft
------
This is the raft that will take you and a partner to mini-game island.
While on the island you are to cure as much mini-game as you can. Once you
reach the end you will get a reward. (check the mini-game island section
for more information).


==========================================================================
Rules
==========================================================================
Before you start to see who is the Super Star of the board is, you must know
the basics.

Dice Block
-------------
At the beginning of every characters turn you must hit the dice block.
Character hit the dice block on the first round to see who gets to go first.
The character with the highest number goes first. Numbers are from 1-10,
let say if a character hit a 7 he then has to move 7 spaces. You can buy
different kinds of block at the Mushroom Shop to change the Dice Block
numbers.

Blue Space
-----------
Whenever you land on one of these you will be rewarded with 3 coins. But
during the final 5 turns you will be awarded with 6 coins instead of 3. Most
of any board is cover with these space.

Star Space
-----------
These spaces have a star on top of them so you'll know it's a mini-game
space. Whenever someone land on this spot they will be randomly selected to
play a 1 player mini-game.

Red Space
----------
This space will harm you a little bit. Unlike the Blue Space you lose 3
coins instead of gaining 3. During the final 5 turns it will also be
double, so that means you'll lose 6 instead of 3 coins.

! Space
--------
Landing on these spaces will start the 1 player Chance Game. You can win
coins, and even star if you do it right.

? Space
---------
There is a lot of option for this space. It depends on what board you're
on for this space to work. Check the Board FAQs Section.

Mushroom Space
---------------
Once a character hit this space a block will suddenly appear. The block
has 2 choices, a good mushroom and a poisonous one. The good one will allow
you to roll the Dice Block again and the poisonous one will cost you a turn.

Browser Space
--------------
This is one of the most dangerous spaces in a board. You land on one of
this you're going to play the Browser game. It's just like any other mini-games
with Browser in it but if you lose you will lose a major amount of coins.

Roulette Option
----------------
Once a turn is done or you land on the ! or the ? space roulette will
appear. It will randomly select a mini-game you're going to play.

Boo
-----
This ghost can either be your friend or your foe. Once you come to this
ghost too got 2 options. Let him steal coins for free or let him steal a
star for 50 coins. Other players can do the same with him to. So be careful.

Koopa Troopa
-------------
This is your guide. He will explain each board rules and also help you out
a little. Every time you get to him you'll receive 10 coins, but in the final
5 turns you'll get 20 instead.

Browser
--------
Yep, this is Mario's old enemy. Watch out be cause if you get to him you'll
lose a huge amount of coins, just for some useless items.

Toad
------
He will give you 1 star in exchange for 20 coins. Keep in mind that others
are trying to get to him also and he moves around sometimes.

Stars
--------
A star in more important than coins. In the game they judge you by how many
stars you have to win. In order to get stars you can steal them by paying Boo
50 coins or you and buy them from Toad for 10 coins. That's not all the ways
you can get stars. At the end of every turn Koopa Troopa will come out and
he'll give stars for the person who has the most coins, move the most space
and beat a lot of mini-games. Once you have collected 100 stars a secret will
be unlock. (check the secret section).

Coins
------
The only thing coins are good for is buying you items at the Mushroom Village
and buying star. Sometime they will lodge you by the coins if you have the
same amount of stars as someone else. And at the end of every turn you will
get a star if you have the most coins. There are 3 different kinds of coins:

Regular Yellow Coin: 1 coin
Bag of Coin: 5 coins
Treasure Chest: 10 coins (some worth more)

Boards
--------
There are a lot of boards you can choose to play. Each on has its own special
features. When you first play try to pick an easy board then go to the tough
ones.


==========================================================================
Board Guide
==========================================================================
Here you'll find all the boards (including the secret ones). I'll also list
how hard it is, strategy for it and much more.

Ledged:

Board Name:
Difficulty: 1-5
Spaces: (How many spaces there is in the board)
? Space =: What happen when you land on the space
Mini-Map: (only for some boards)
Strategy:
Ending: !!!SPOILER!!!

*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
Difficulty: 1

! Spaces : 0 
Red Spaces: 7
Red Bowser Spaces: 3
Blue Mushroom Spaces: 3
Blue Mini-Game Spaces: 5
Blue Spaces: 57
? Spaces: 9

? Space = When you land on a question mark space a rock will fall down and
chase anybody in its path. That's right if the rock goes down where you
are at you have to go back to the where you start!

Strategy: This is a fairly simple and easy board. But there are a couple of
things you should watch out for. Like Browser, he'll sell you a worthless
banana for 10 coins. Watch out for twomp also (blue blocks), once in a while
pay them money to get pass. Whatever you do try to stay away from the
"? Space" or else a huge boulder will come out and chase anything in its
path.

Ending: !!!SPOILER!!! Once you beat the board a banana will come out and it
will be a secret treasure for DK's Jungle Adventure. The 3 top players will
stand by the first place player, while the player that is 4th will get chase
by the boulder.

Difficulty: 1

Blue Mini-Game Spaces: 4
Blue Spaces: 34
Red Spaces: 5
Red Bowser Spaces: 2
Blue Mushroom Spaces: 2
! Spaces: 2
? Spaces: 5

? Space = The question mark space will switch Toad with Browser once you
land on it. Land on it again to switch it back.

Strategy: Yet another easy board. Enjoy the easiness while you still can.
There isn't a lot of things to worry about this board. There are 2 things
to worry about. One the "? Space". Why? because whenever you land on it
will switch from Toad to Browser. But it also can be good to trick other
players to get to Browser first. The second thing is Browser. He will
sell you a star for 20 coins...sound good well it's fake. Other than that
this board is fairly simple to get lots of coins and stars.

Ending: !!!SPOILER!!! After you complete the board a star will create a
rainbow so all that can climb. The three top characters will go up the
rainbow while the last place one will fall.

                        Wario's Battle Canyon
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
Difficulty: 2

Mini-Map: ___    ___
         | 0 |  | 0 |
         |__B|  |_F_|
             ____
            | B  |

          ___    ___
         | 0 |  | 0 |
         |_k_|  |___|

0 = Bombs: These little bombs will blast you from cannon to another region.

B = Browser: This time he'll steal 30 coins and shoot you to another spot.

K = Koopa Troopa: Once you get to him you'll get 10 coins. (except for the
last 5 turns, you'll get 20 coins instead.

F = Shy Guy: Pay him a fee of 20 coins and he'll take you to Browser Place
or other Fly Guy spot.

B = Boo

Blue Mushroom Spaces: 5
Red Bowser Spaces: 2
Blue Mini-Game Spaces: 10
Blue Spaces: 41
! Spaces: None
Red Spaces: 7
? Spaces: 2

? Space = This will change the cannon coordinates.

Strategy: What's so bad about landing on the "? Space"? Well all it does
is change the cannon coordinates. That means that you'll be shoot to a
different region than the one it use to shoot at. That's all you should be
worry about. Don't worry you won't go to Browser's region often. Also Toad
is extremely hard to find because he'll move around so good luck finding him.

Ending: !!!SPOILER!!! Once you're done with the board you get to go to a
region where the 3  winners will go to watch amazing fireworks. As for the
loser Browser will blast them  from a cannon.

                        Yoshi's Tropical Island
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
Difficulty: 2

Blue Mushroom Spaces: 3
Red Bowser Spaces: 2
Blue Spaces: 34
Blue Mini-Game Spaces: 4
Red Spaces: 3
! Spaces: 2
? Spaces: 7

? Space = A fish will switch Toad and Browser place.

Strategy: Ah, welcome to the tropical island. Just sit down and relax...not.
This board isn't that hard but it's still hard. There are 2 islands, one has
Toad the other have Browser. If you think you can just stay on one island,
then you're wrong. Once someone land on the "? Space" Toad and Browser will
get switch. There is only 1 way to go from one island to another. And that
is to pay Twomp (blue block) a fee. But as you change from one island to
another the fee will increase, so it'll be harder to go to the other island.
Other than that you've got nothing to worry about. This board is quite easy. 
ant to know how can you get to the little Yoshi in the middle? Once you
beat the board you'll find out, or you can just read ahead.

Ending: !!!SPOILER!!! Once you complete this board you will see a good FMV.
A star will come and make a bridge to the Yoshi. Then the top 3 players will
come to that island to watch the star. The loser how ever will be eaten by
the fish (the one that switch Toad and Browser).

Blue Mini-Game Spaces: 2
Blue Mushroom Spaces: 6
Blue Spaces: 28
Red Spaces: 4
? Spaces: 14

? Space = A Goomba will sell you a seed for 30 coins to plant on that space.
The seed will grow a plant and whoever will land on that see with the plant
will lose a star!

Strategy: Happy birthday Peach!!! Welcome to Peach's Birthday Cake. As you
may have already  see there is a lot of "? Space" (check above). On this
board the only thing you got to be careful about is picking the right Seed.
That's right you have to pick the right Seed. Once you get to the Goomba
you'll have to pay him 10 coins to pick a seed. There are 4 color seeds to
choose from, 3 of them is the correct one that will lead you to Toad and 1
of them will lead you to Browser! On this board Browser will sell you a
worthless birthday cake for 30 coins! So try to pick the right seed.

Ending: !!!SPOILER!!! After you complete the board the candles will be light
up.  The top 3 players will get to see the star while the loser will be
eaten by the Piranha Plant.

                            Luigi's Engine Room

Difficulty: 3


Red Bowser Spaces: 3
Blue Mushroom Spaces: 3

Blue Mini-Game Spaces: 4
! Spaces: None
Red Spaces: 4
? Spaces: 5

? Space = Once land on this space the doors will close and another one will
open making a way to another place in the board.

Strategy: This is one of the hardest boards in the entire game and it's also
one of the largest. Try to stay away from the left side of the board or else
you'll meet Browser. He will only steal 20 coins from you ad he'll give
back 1 coin. Isn't that nice. Also sometimes pay the machine sometimes. Why?
To stop some players to get to the stars. Once you beat this difficult board
you'll get to see a great FMV.

Ending: !!!SPOILER!!! After you beat this board a star will come up. It will
power up the engine, and with the engine power up the ship can move again.
The 3 winners will get to go aboard the great wonder while the loser will
fall and has to stay in the engine room.

*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
Congrats you beat all the board...not. There 3 secret boards left in the game.
Check the secret section to find out how to find them. But since this is a
board guide, I'll tell you strategy about them.


*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
                     Browser's Magma Mountain
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
Difficulty: 3

Blue Spaces: 45
Blue Mushroom Spaces: 3
Red Spaces: 4
Blue Mini-Game Spaces: 3
! Spaces : None
Red Bowser Spaces: 2
? Spaces: 4

? Space = This time the space will turn all of the blue space into red space!

Strategy: Welcome to Browser's place, located on the volcano. On this board
you'll be expected to lose a huge amount of coins, so be careful. Here are a
couple of things you should watch out for. 1 Browser of course. He'll steal
your star! But if you don't have any stars then he'll steal all your coins
instead! But don't worry you won't be ending up seeing him all the time.
There will be a shortcut to get to the star faster. Where is the shortcut?
You have to pay Blobby Mountain Guy 10 coins. But don't think it's that
simple. You have to play a chance game when you pay him. If you lose at the
chance game you will be force to go see Browser!!!

Ending: !!!SPOILER!!! Once you complete this board the volcano will blow up!
Which will hurt? Browser and then the 1 place player will get to jump on him.

*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
                                 Eternal Star
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
Difficulty: 3

Blue Spaces: 36
Red Bowser Spaces: 3
Red Spaces: 4
Blue Mushroom Spaces: 3
Blue Mini-Game Spaces: 3
! Spaces: None
? Space: 4

? Space = Landing on this space will cause all characters to go back to the
beginning of the board.

Strategy: If you think Browser's Magma Mountain was hard you're in for a
surprise. This is the hardest, longest, biggest board in the entire game!
The Eternal Star is a huge star destroy by Browser and his game. Only the
Super Star will have the power to restore it to normal. Since the star is
Broken there are 7 regions that you can go on. To change to another region 
ou must take Browser's teleport machine. What Toad is not in here? That's
right Toad isn't in this board this time. He has been kidnap by one of the
mini Browser. To get stars you have to pay the mini Browser 20 coins and
you have to beat them in a game of dice before you could get the star. The
game is quite simple, all you to do is try to get a higher number than the
mini Browser. There are a Baby Browsers on each regions, so good luck. Oh
yeah this time Browser won't steal anything from you but he'll switch the
teleport machine direction, so watch out.

Ending: SORRY THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST ENDING EVER AND I"M NOT ABOUT TO RUN IT.
