Intro
------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Mario Party games were the series that introduced me to the board 
game/party genre.  I've played the first one a lot (my friend owns it), 
the third one looks great, and 
Mario Party 2 is no exception.  I've spent and still do spend hours of 
fun playing through all of the different boards, mini-games, and other 
cool things the game has to offer, and I like it all so much, I wrote a 
FAQ for it!  So, if you haven't been convinced enough to go out and get 
this great game once and for all, I recommend you do now!  
Enjoy the FAQ!

                   ----- I. Version History -----
========================================================================

Final Version (September 20, 2002)
---------------------------------
Slightly new format and new email.  Don't expect any more updates, 
because I no longer have this game.  However, I'm still taking reader 
contributions!


Version 1.0 (August 12, 2002)
-----------------------------
The guide is 100% complete!


========================================================================
                     ----- II. Characters -----
========================================================================

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Playable Characters
------------------------------------------------------------------------

There's nothing really to say about the playable characters in the game 
besides their names (I'm not going to bother doing a description of 
them, because they're extremely common).  But I might as well list them 
anyway, so here we go:
~ Mario
~ Luigi
~ Peach
~ Yoshi
~ Wario
~ Donkey Kong

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Non - Playable Characters
------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are characters out there that you cannot use, but have a role in 
the game.  I'm not going to list every single character that you come 
across that is non-playable, but just the major ones.  Here they are:

~ Toad
If you think of Mario Party 2 a game show, you could say 
Toad is the host.  
He's basically there to ask you for game settings, give you stars if you 
have 
20 coins on boards, and so on.

~ Boo
Boo appears on every board.  He'll steal coins or a star from a player 
and give them/it to you, but, of course, for a price.

~ Baby Bowser
Baby Bowser appears on the board in the spot where Toad last was.  He'll 
take some coins (usually up to five) from you if you pass by him, but if 
you have the Bowser Suit equipped, he'll give you all the coins he's 
collected, thinking you're Bowser!  Pretty handy!

~ Bowser
If you land on the Bowser space, you'll be transported to 
Bowser, where a special roulette will occur.  There's a lot of bad 
things on there (like "20 Coins for Bowser"), but if you get a good 
thing, he'll just run away!  


========================================================================
             ----- III. Mini Game Land Overview -----
========================================================================

On the main menu, you can choose to visit a place called 
Mini-Game Land.  
Basically, you can go here to play games without having to go through a 
big board game in the process.  Here I've typed up a little guide to the 
places you can go to here.

Woody
-----
You buy mini-games here with the coins you've earned in board games.  To 
be able to play mini-games in the park, you have to pay for them here 
first!


Mini-Game Park
--------------
Here you can play any of the mini-games you've bought from Woody.  These 
include the 4 player, 2 vs. 2, and 1 vs. 3 games.


Mini-Game Stadium
-----------------
You can play three styles of games here, although when the stadium is 
first available, you can only use one of them.  
Just buy more mini-games to unlock the two other styles.

~ Battle (Available from start): You play randomly selected mini-games 
that are either all 4 player, 2v2, or 1v3 games (you set this option at 
the beginning).  You just keep playing until a team/player comes to 3, 
5, or 7 wins, depending on what you set it on before the game.

~ Trial: It's basically a short version of a traditional board game.  
You only play with coins, and you can only get them by winning a mini-
game at the end of everybody's turn and by doing one lap around the 
board.

~ Duel: Simple.  There are two players, and you play duel mini-games 
until one player reaches a certain amount of wins.


Mini-Game Coaster
-----------------

This is for only one player, and I believe can only be accessed if 
you've bought all of Woody's mini-games.  It's like a classic Mario-
style game, where you move to different levels, except each level is a 
mini-game.  Pretty fun.


Records Bottle
--------------
You'll see a little red bottle floating near the coaster, and it just 
holds your best records for mini-games.


Coin Box
--------
It shows how many coins you currently have.  Coins are earned from 
playing board games, and can be used to buy mini-games from Woody.


========================================================================
                  ----- IV. Boards Overview -----
========================================================================

Here is the basic information you need to know about boards so you will 
be able to understand playing.  That includes settings, space 
descriptions, special places, and more.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Game Settings
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Before every game, you need to tell Toad some things.  They're all 
listed here, in order, with a description of what each one means (like 
you need them :P). 


Player Settings
---------------
Here you simply decide if one human player, two human players, three, or 
four (you'll need a controller for each person, though).  In each 
bubble, you may see both little blue figures and little red figures; 
blue = humans; red = computers.


Character Settings
------------------
Yep, believe it or not, you get to decide which characters you'll be 
playing with (human and computer characters).


Computer Skill Settings
-----------------------
This just asks you how tough the computer players are on you.  First you 
get to choose if you'll set the levels all the same or individually.  
Then, you'll be able to set the skill levels from a few choices.


Turns Settings
--------------
You next need to decide how many turns your game is going to last (one 
turn = each player going once), and can choose from 20, 35, and 50 
turns.  I usually stick with 20, as 35 is pretty darn long, and 50 seems 
to go on for eternity, really.


Bonus Stars Settings
--------------------
Lastly, you need to choose if you to play with the bonus awards or not.  
Bonus awards are basically when they give out a few stars out to players 
for accomplishing certain things.  One example is the "coin star," and 
you can probably guess that it is given to the player with the most 
coins at the end.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Space Descriptions
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Blue Space
----------
Description: A plain blue space.
Effect: +3 coins, but +6 coins if you land on it in the last 10 turns


Red Space 
---------
Description: A plain red space.
Effect: -3 coins, but -6 coins if you land on it in the last 10 turns


Bowser Space
------------
Description: A red space that is in a shape that somewhat resembles 
Bowser's face.
Effect: If you land on it, you'll be transported to Bowser, where a 
special roulette will appear. There are mainly bad things for the player 
on the roulette, but if you get one of the good things, he'll usually 
just run.


"!" Space
---------
Description: A green space with a "!" on it.
Effect: If you land on it, you will play the Chance Time game.  There 
are three blocks that are spinning.  The ones on the ends have the 
players' faces on them, and the middle one has arrows and a certain 
amount of coins or stars on them, which shows what the character on one 
end will be giving to the other.


Happening Space
---------------
Description: A green space with a "?" on it.
Effect: A certain thing will happen to the player who lands on this 
depending on what board you're playing on.


Battle Space
------------
Description: A green space with a yellow lightning bolt on it.
Effect: Goomba will come if a player lands on this and will take an 
indefinite amount of coins from each player.  You will play a special 4 
player mini-game, and the winner takes most of the coins Goomba 
collected, and second place will get some.


Treasure Chest Space
--------------------
Description: A green space with a white treasure chest on it.
Effect: If you land on it, you will get to play an item mini-game.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Special Places
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bank
----
If you pass by here in the five normal levels, you have to give 5 coins 
to Koopa Troopa, but if you land here, you get all of the coins that 
were collected!  In Bowser Land, if you pass by it Bowser will give you 
a 5 coin loan, but if you land on it, you will have to pay back the 
debt!


Item Shop
---------
Run by Koopa Troopa, you can get items here besides from item mini-
games.


Boo
---
If you pass by Boo, you'll have the opportunity to steal coins or a star 
from other players.
Steal Coins: 5 coins
Steal Stars: 50 coins


Toad
----
If you pass Toad and have 20 coins, he'll give you a star if you give 
your 20 coins in exchange, and then will move to another location.


Baby Bowser
-----------
Baby Bowser is in the spot where Toad last was giving out stars.  He'll 
normally take some coins from you if you pass by him, but if you wear 
the Bowser Suit and come, he'll give you all the coins he collected!
