    1. INTRODUCTION
    
    
    
    Hi! Even though I have written several FAQS for PlayStation games, I have yet to 
    do one for a N64 game. So, this will be my first one for the system, and I think 
    one for Mario Party 2 would be a good choice. The best party game of last year 
    just got better with this sequel. Mario Party 2 is an awesome game, with even 
    more impressive mini-games. Although it's not as fun in the one-player category, 
    it's insanely fun with three other friends. So, grab a six-pack (beer or soda, 
    depending on your age :), order a few pizzas, grab three friends, and get ready 
    for a party! A Mario Party!

    ************** 1.1) MY REVIEW OF MARIO PARTY 2 ***********
                  *********************************
    
    Here's my review of Mario Party 2:
    -----------------------------------
    
    When I first played the original Mario Party, I thought it was a good game, but 
    it wasn't what I had fully expected. But now, after playing the super-sequel of 
    Mario Party, Mario Party 2, I can now say that this is the BEST party game ever!
    
    Now let's break Mario Party 2 into it's most important aspects.
    
    ---------------
    GRAPHICS - 8/10
    ---------------
    The graphics in Mario Party 2, while not the best I have seen, do the job very 
    well, and are much better than the graphics in the original Mario Party. The 
    visuals in Mario Party 2 have been improved over the first Mario Party 2, and it 
    shows. The textures have been cleaned up a bit, and the characters are more 
    reconizable than before. Even though there was a slight bit of slowdown during 
    some of the Mini-Games in the original, there's absolutley NONE in Mario Party 
    2. There are more 3-D graphics within the Mini-Games than the original too. In 
    the first Mario Party, some of the Mini-Games had just sprites, with little 3-D 
    graphics in them. Now, ALL of the Mini-Games in Mario Party 2 contain 3-D 
    graphics. This makes the game that much more enjoyable, and makes the game 
    easier on the eyes.
    
    ----------------
    STORY - 8/10
    ----------------
    Even though there's barely a story for Mario Party 2, it's probably the best one 
    you'll get for a multiplayer game. The basic premise of Mario Party 2 is that 
    all of the characters in the game (all from the Nintendo universe), are fighting 
    over who to name the world they all built after. At first it was going to be 
    called "Mario Land," but everyone started to fight. Now, they must compete on 
    the game boards to earn the right to become the Super Star. Okay, so it's not 
    the greatest story ever told, but it's good enough for me. :)
    
    -----------------
    SOUND - 7/10
    -----------------
    The sound quality in Mario Party 2 is really good for a Nintendo 64 game, since 
    it's cartridge based, and the sound quality is usually bad for cartridge games. 
    The music is pretty well done, although it sometimes gets on your nerves after 
    playing for a while. The sound effects are also well done, and they add some 
    variety to the game. All of the sound effects, though, are somewhat muffled, 
    since it's a cartridge game. Oh well, nothing's perfect. And BTW, Toad's more 
    annoying than ever. He'll get on your nerves. Fast.
    
    -----------------
    CONTROL - 9/10
    -----------------
    Although there's not much use for controls within the menus and game boards, the 
    control's are awesome for the Mini-Games. Controlling your Bobsled or plane is 
    easy, thanks to the intuitive control scheme. The control's are basic, and basic 
    is good. Since Mario Party 2's controls are easy to use, winning Mini-Games are 
    far easier than before, and allows players of all ages to play. Thank goodness 
    that Nintendo removed those spinning-joystick Mini-Games, cause those sucked. :p
    
    -------------------
    GAMEPLAY - 10/10
    -------------------
    This is the most important aspect of a game, in my opinion, and is the best 
    aspect of Mario Party 2. The gameplay of Mario Party 2 is the core of the game, 
    and it's wonderful. This is the best party game ever, and it's all because of 
    the solid gameplay. I thought that the original Mario Party was a pretty good 
    playing game, despite having a few flaws, but Mario Party 2 is a lot better 
    playing than the original. At the heart of the gameplay, are the Mini-Games. 
    Another word that could describe the Mini-Games is variety. With over 60 Mini-
    Games, Mario Party 2's Mini-Games have plenty of variety to keep the player's 
    attention, and attract you to the game more than ever. Some of the Mini-Games 
    are kinda fun, but most of them are EXTREMEMLY fun to play, and you'll want to 
    play them over and over again. Another aspect of the gameplay are all of the 
    extra modes that are included. Other than the regular Mini-Game boards, there is 
    a place where you can purchase any Mini-Game you want to, and then play them at 
    any time. There's also a place where you can visit a game board that only plays 
    Mini-Games. These are great additions to an already geat game.
    
    ----------------------
    REPLAYABILITY - 10/10
    ----------------------
    Okay, if you have two or three friends, the replayablility of Mario Party 2 is a 
    10. But if you are a lone gamer, the replayablility of Mario Party 2 is a 6 or a 
    7. Why? Because this is a <b>MULTIPLAYER</b> game, which means it's great for a 
    few people to play, but not very fun with only one person. Sure you can play 
    with three other computer opponents, but it's just not the same as if you were 
    playing along side three of your buddies. So, if you have plenty of friends, 
    this is has almost unlimited replay-value. Just think about that if you are 
    thinking of making a purchase of Mario Party 2.
    
    ------------------
    BUY/RENT - BUY!!!!
    ------------------
    You should definatley buy Mario Party 2 right this moment if you have some 
    friends looking for some fun. If you don't have any friends, or don't have 
    friends who like Nintendo, then give Mario Party 2 a rent. If you are still 
    unsure about making a purchase, then head over to your nearest Blockbuster 
    retailer, and rent Mario Party 2 tonight!

    4. THE STORY
    
    
    
    Here's the story straight from the game manual itself:
    
    
    Mario and Luigi, Wario and Peach, 
    DK and Yoshi all gathered in speech, 
    sharing their wishes for all they had seen,
    saying "Let's make a world built on all of our dreams!" 
    Combining their talents, they sweated and strained, 
    completing that world, Mario Land by name...
    
    Alas, but Wario stepped forth and said, 
    "This world should be named for a Super Star, instead. 
    "Wario Land is a far better name!"
    And so they all argued the depth of their fame.
    "Peach Land is better!" and "My name is best!"
    Toad could not believe the words of the rest!
    
    But as they debated who was more grand
    Bowser invaded that Mario Land!!!
    "There's no time to argue and no time to fight!
    "The task is before us," Toad said with a fright.
    "This land shall be named for  the Super Star who 
    "Defeats Evil Bowser and saves us all, too!"
    
    So Mario and friends, took on this new quest,
    To defeat the King Koopa and prove who's the best!
    They went deep into space, met ghosts and pirates, 
    But always on Bowser their keen sights were set.
    No adventure more trying, no reward more grand...
    So speaks the Legend of Mario Land!

    6. THE INFORMATION BOARD
    
    
    
    The Information Board is just like a Main Menu. It lets you choose where you 
    want to go, like Options, See the Rules, what game board you wish to play on, 
    and Mini-Game Land.
    
    
    OPTION LABORATORY
    ------------------
    The Option Laboratory is used to change various options. You can choose to erase 
    your game data, or change the sound settings in this Laboratory.
    
    
    MINI-GAME LAND
    ---------------
    You can go to Mini-Game Land to purchase Mini-Games that you have already played 
    within the board games. You can also play those Mini-Games you have bought any 
    time you wish.
    
    - Woody: He's the guy you are supposed to go to in order to purchase 
             any Mini-Games that you've played in the Board Games, 
             provided that you have enough Coins. :)
    
    - Mini-Game Park: You can come here to play the Mini-Games that you've 
                      bought from good 'ol Woody.
    
    - Coin Box: All of the coins that you've collected throughout the 
                course of the Board Games are kept in here. Go here to 
                see how many Coins you have.
    
    - Records Bottle: All of the Mini-Game course records are held here. 
                      Duh!
    
    - Mini-Game Coaster: You can only go here once you've collected a 
                         certain number of Mini-Games from Woody. This is
                         special single-player mode, for all you loners 
                         there. :p  Also, some say that whoever clears the 
                         Rollercoaster first receives a very special
                         prize... 
    
    - Mini-Game Stadium: You can only go here once you've bought a certain 
                         number of Mini-Games from Woody. At first, only 
                         one game mode is available, but there are two 
                         more that are hidden.
                              * One mode is the BATTLE MODE. This is where
                                you can compete with three other players
                                (computer or human), in a 3, 5, or 7 Win 
                                match. Once you've chosen what type of 
                                match it will be, you can choose either to 
                                play 4-player Mini-Games, 2-on-2 Mini-
                                Games, or 3-on-1 Mini-Games. This mode
                                (Mini-Game Staduim) is a very fun way to 
                                sharpen your Mini-Game skills, or to 
                                completely bypass the whole board games 
                                option, and just play the Mini-Games. 
                                A wonderful addition to an alreaady 
                                outstanding game. 
    
                              * Another Mode is TRIAL MODE. This mode 
                                allows you to choose whether or not there
                                are handicaps, and lets you choose from 
                                10, 20, or 30 Turn games. Trial Mode is
                                like playing on a regular board, except 
                                that there are no Stars, and you win by 
                                collecting the most amount of Coins 
                                acquired from Mini-Games. You also do 
                                not receive or lose Coins by landing on 
                                Red and Blue spaces, but you DO get 10 
                                Coins after completing one lap around the 
                                board. The board is in the shape of a 
                                figure-8, and is very easy to play on. 
                                Look in The Boards Section of this FAQ for
                                a map of it. 
     
                             *  The last Mode within the Mini-Game Stadium
                                is the Duel Mode. This mode allows you to 
                                play 2-player Duel Mini-Games, just as the 
                                name implies. And, since you can only play
                                Duel Mini-Games, only 2 players can 
                                participate. You can choose from a 3-Win
                                Match, a 5-Win Match, or a 7-Win Match. 
                                Basically, the Duel Mode is just like 
                                Battle Mode, only with Duel Mini-Games.
    
    
    
    RULES LAND
    -----------
    Just as the name implies, you can view the rules of the game here. You might 
    want to visit this Land if this is your first time playing Mario Party 2, of if 
    you haven't played the first one.
    
    
    PIRATE LAND
    ------------
    A game board with the theme of Pirates and tropical islands. Watch out for the 
    cannons on the Pirate Ships near the bridges...
    
    
    WESTERN LAND
    -------------
    A game board with the theme of the Wild Wild West, cowboys, and an old town. 
    Watch out for that mean ol' Bowser though...
    
    SPACE LAND
    -----------
    A different type of board, with the theme being outer space. Make sure that when 
    Bowser's Giant Coin beam goes off, you're not in it's path...
    
    
    MYSTERY LAND
    -------------
    A game board that is divided into four mini-boards, with four different themes. 
    Plenty of Warp points just laying around. Mysterious...
    
    
    HORROR LAND
    -------------
    A unique game board where whenever 2 turns pass by, day turns into night, and 
    vice-versa. It will also change if you happen to land on a "?" Space. Scary...
    
    
    BOWSER LAND
    -------------
    Home of the evil Bowser, Bowser Land is where Toad had been taken to.  After 
    every 5 turns, a Bowser Parade starts where Bowser and pals march down a path, 
    and whoever is within that path loses all of their coins and goes back to Start. 
    Bowser Bank goes in reverse; Every time you go past the bank, you get 5 Coins, 
    but every time you land on it, you lose coins!  A difficult board, especially 
    since everything is run by Bowser himself. Watch out for the big man himself...
    
    
    
    
    
    
    7. THE GAME BOARDS
    
    
    
    When you first begin your adventure, there will be 5 different game boards to 
    choose from. There may be some hidden ones too, so when I find out how to open 
    them up, I will add them.
    
    
    Bits 'o' info:
    ---------------
    Blue Spaces: You receive 3 coins when you land on this space. Hidden
                 blocks may appear on these spaces
    
    Red Spcaes: You lose 3 coins when you land on a red space.
    
    "!" Spaces: You will get to appear in a Single Player Chance Mini
                Game.
    
    "?" Spaces: Different things can happen when you land on this space.
    
    Item Space: You have a chance to compete in a single-player Mini-Game.
    
    Bowser Space: Bowser will cause you a lot of trouble. You will always
                  lose coins to him.
    
    Battle Space: A four-player Mini-Game starts when you land on this 
                  space.
    
    Koopa Bank: Every time you land on this space, you'll have to deposit 
                5 coins into the bank. If you happen to land there, you 
                get all of the coins that are in the bank.
    
    Toad Stars: Land on one of these, and you can pay Toad 20 Coins for a 
                Star!
    
    Hidden Blocks: These can only be found while playing with "Bonuses" 
                   on. You may find Coins, or even a Star if you're 
                   lucky...
    
    Mysterious Relics: Alien Warp points that will warp you to a different 
                       location on the board if you pay 10 Coins. It's 
                       worth it...
    
    Mushroom Spaces: If you land on one of these, you will enter a chance 
                     Mini-Game where you can win an Item.
    
    Baby Bowser Space: These will be located where a star was previously
                       located. If you land on one of these spaces, you'll
                       have to pay Baby Bowser 5 Coins. But sometimes
                       he'll give YOU 5 Coins...
    
    Fake Toad Spaces: If you land on a Fake Toad Space, Bowser will sell
                      you a Black Star, and trick you! Beware...

    HORROR LAND
    -----------
    Difficulty: ***/*****
    
    A unique game board where whenever 2 turns pass by, day turns into night, and 
    vice-versa. It will also change if you happen to land on a "?" Space. Scary...

    BOWSER LAND
    -------------
    Difficulty: ***/*****
    
    Home of the evil Bowser, Bowser Land is where Toad had been taken to.  After 
    every 5 turns, a Bowser Parade starts where Bowser and pals march down a path, 
    and whoever is within that path loses all of their coins and goes back to Start. 
    Bowser Bank goes in reverse; Every time you go past the bank, you get 5 Coins, 
    but every time you land on it, you lose coins!  A difficult board, especially 
    since everything is run by Bowser himself. Watch out for the big man himself...

    MINI-GAME STADIUM
    ------------------
    Difficulty: */*****
    
    The Mini-Game Staduim Board can be opened up once you've purchased a certain 
    number of Mini-Games from good ol' Woody in Mini-Game Staduim. I'm not sure how 
    many Mini-Games are needed to be purchased, but I think you need to purchase 
    around 10 Mini-Games from Woody in Mini-
    Game Staduim to unlock the Mini-Game Stadium Board. To find the Mini-Game 
    Stadium Board, just go to the Mini-Game Staduim option that;s right below Woody 
    the tree. Enter TRAIL Mode to get to Mini-Game Staduim. Anyways, Mini-Game 
    Statuim Board is the EASIEST game board to play on, since all you need is Coins 
    to win. Yep, there are no Stars. To win, you'll need to collect the most Coins 
    after the set amount of turns. After 1 Lap around the board, you'll get a 10 
    Coin bonus. There are no hazards within this board, and all you do is play Mini-
    Games. Also, you DO NOT gain or lose Coins for landing on the Red and Blue 
    spaces. Like I said earlier, this is a great addition to an already wonderful 
    game. Props to Nintendo for adding so many extras to this awesome game!

    --------------------------------------------------------
    Now here's a list of the ones that I've unlocked so far:
    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    
    ==================
    Battle Minigames 
    ==================
    
    BUMPER BALLOON CARS - N/A
    -----------------------------
    In this Battle Mini-Game, you be in a car equipped with a set of steel spikes in 
    the front of it. You also have a balloon on the back of your car.The first one 
    to pop the other's balloons, wins.
    
    
    DAY AT THE RACES - N/A
    -----------------------
    In this Mini-Game, you have to bet on which horse you think will win the race. 
    All too easy...
    
    
    RAKIN EM' IN! - N/A
    --------------------
    This Mini-Game is really fun, since it reflects the old game, "Hungry, Hungry 
    Hippos." All you have to do is "rake" in as many mushrooms as you can, but avoid 
    the purple mushrooms, cause they will count against you at the end.
    
    BOWSER'S BIG BLAST - N/A
    -------------------------
    This Battle Mini-Game is kinda boring, since all you do is choose which lever to 
    push. When you play, there are different colored levers to push down. Some 
    levers will cause Bowser to explode, while others won't. It's just a game of 
    luck, that's all.
    
    
    GRAB BAG - N/A
    ---------------
    Grab Bag was a Mini-Game from the orginal Mario Party, and it's still as fun as 
    ever. Grab ahold of your opponents bags onb their backs, and see what comes out. 
    The player with the most mushrooms at the end, wins.
    
    
    FACE LIFT - N/A
    ----------------
    Face Lift is also a Mini-Game that is returning from Mario Party. After viewing 
    the face and what it should look like, you'll need to arrange the face to match 
    it. The player who's face looks closest to the original, wins.
    
    
    CRAZY CUTTERS - N/A
    --------------------
    This one was also in the original Mario Party. You'll need to use a moving jack-
    hammer to cut out the figure that's sealed in the stone. The player who cut's 
    theirs out as close to the line as possible, wins.
    
    
    
    HOT BOB-OMB - N/A
    ------------------
    Hot Bob-omb is kinda like a version of Hot Potato. You pass the hot bomb back 
    and forth until it blows up, and you start again. The last player standing, 
    wins.
    
    
    ===================
    Dueling Minigames
    ===================
    
    SABER SWIPERS - N/A
    --------------------
    A pretty straightforward game, where you have to complete a series patterns 
    before your opponent. 
    
    
    QUICK DRAW - N/A
    -----------------
    Just like a traditional draw from the Wild Wild West. You take 10 paces, then 
    BANG! First one to hit the other persion, wins.
    
    
    TIME BOMB - N/A
    ----------------
    This Mini-Game is a simple game. All you have to do is defuse a bomb before time 
    runs out.
    
    
    MUSHROOM BREW - N/A
    --------------------
    Mushroom Brew is sorta like Shy Guy Says, because you have to hit the button he 
    shows to you, and make a mushroom brew. The player with the most correct button 
    combos, wins.
    
    
    PSYCHIC SAFARI - N/A
    ---------------------
    You'll need to give power to the mystic mushrooms. Hit A & B alternatly to give 
    them psychic powers. The mushroom with the most power to crush the other, wins. 
    
    
    ROCK, PAPER, MARIO - N/A
    -------------------------
    Just like the game "Rock, Paper, Scissors". Peah beats Mario, Mario beats 
    Bowser, and Bowser beats Peach. 
    
    
    
    
    
    ====================
    Item Mini-Games
    ====================
    
    ROLL OUT THE BARRELS - ??? Coins
    ---------------------------------
    This Item Mini-Game is sorta like Coffin Congestions, since all of the Items get 
    mixed up. Just find an Item you want, and watch it until it stops, then go and 
    grab it.
    
    
    GIVE ME A BREAK! - ??? Coins
    -----------------------------
    This Item Mini-Game is fun. There are Items scattered on a small train. When you 
    pull the lever, the train stops. Whatever it lands on, is whatever you get.
    
    
    HAMMER SLAMMER - ??? Coins
    ---------------------------
    This Item Mini-Game is like a carnival game. Hammer Slammer is where you tap A 
    to lift a hammer, then hit B to release it and deliver a blow to the thingy, 
    which then rises the bar to an Item. The harder you hit it with the hammer, the 
    higher the bar will go. Found within the Space Land board.
    
    
    MALLET-GO-ROUND - ??? Coins
    ----------------------------
    All of the Items in this Item Mini-Game are on top of two slabs of stone. As the 
    "Merry-go-round" spins, you need to hit the stones to lower an item. You need to 
    break two of the stones beneath an Item in order to get it. But watch out for 
    Baby Bowser, who is only on ONE stone instead of two. Found in Mystery Land.
    
    
    COFFIN CONGESTION - ??? Coins
    ------------------------------
    This Item Mini-Game is a mix up game where all of the Items are placed inside of 
    some coffins, and they all change places a few times. Once they are done 
    changing places, you need to pick a coffin with a Item in it, not the one with 
    Baby Bowser. Found in Horror Land.
    
    
    BOWSER SLOTS - ??? Coins
    -------------------------
    Bowser Slots is just like a slot game. You need to match up three of a kind of 
    an Item to win that Item. Use A to jump, and to stop the slot machine from 
    spinning. NOTE: There are always 2 of one kind in a row. Found in Bowser Land.
    
    
    
    ====================
    4-Player Mini-Games
    ====================
    
    LAVA HOT ISLE - 150 Coins
    ---------------------------
    Try to stay on the Hot Rocks before they collapse. You can also knock you 
    opponents off if you like.
    
    
    HOT ROPE JUMP - 50 Coins
    --------------------------

    12. FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
    
    
    
    1) Q: How many Mini-Games are in Mario Party 2?
    
       A: There are about 64 Mini-Games within Mario Party 2.
    
    2) Q: Is Mario Party 2 worth buying if you already have the first 
          Mario Party?
    
       A: Yes. Yes it is. :)
    
    3) Q: Are there any hidden players?
    
       A: No.
    
    4) Q: Are there any hidden Boards?
    
       A: Yes, it's called "Bowser Land", and I'll add the Map & Key 
          Locations when I open it.
    
    5) Q: What if I don't HAVE three other friends? 
    
       A: Well, either get some, or play the one-player game. It's not as 
          fun as the multiplayer game, but it's better than nothing...or 
          just don't buy it--buy Harvest Moon 64 instead. :P
    
    6) Q: How often will you update this FAQ?
    
       A: When I feel like it. Just kidding. :) I'll update it once I get 
          more Mini-Games and Boards or Players.
    
    7) Q: Is this REALLY the best multiplayer/party game EVER?
    
       A: In my opinion, yes. Goldeneye is WONDERFUL, but I think Mario 
          Party 2 is just a little bit better in terms of being a party 
          game, because anyone can play it.
    
    8) Q: Is there any way to stop Bowser from running away during the 
          "Bowser Roulete"?
       
       A: Nope.
    
    9) Q: How do I unlock the Battle Mode, Trial Mode, and Duel Battle Mode
          in Mini-Game Stadium?
    
       A: I think you need to buy 5 Mini-Games from Woody to open up Battle 
          Mode, and I think you need to buy 10 Mini-Games from Woody to 
          unlock Trial Mode. I don't really know how many you need to buy
          to unlock Duel Mode, though.
