    Introduction
    ------------
      Well I, Jdude84, am back (not that any of you missed me) from my 
      "vacation" of sorts from writing. Unfortunantly I don't own the game yet, I 
      just rented it a few days ago, so some sections will remain incomplete for 
      a while. If you have anything to contribute to the incomplete sections, 
      that would be appreciated. Also, read section 3 if you are a webmaster or 
      plan on e-mailing me, thanks.
    
      Since I had no will of finishing this FAQ, I got a fellow FAQ Writer by the 
      name of Hang Me 2002 to finish it up for me.

      This section is a helpful reference guide to the status and progression of 
      this FAQ. It explains what I have done to improve this hopefully, great 
      FAQ. I decided to put this section at the top of my FAQ to make it easier 
      on you, the reader, to see what I have fixed a bit quicker and more  
      convenient.
    
      Version 1.0 - April 23rd, 2000  - First version of this FAQ. Many sections 
                                        are incomplete.
    
      Version 2.0 - April 24th, 2000  - Well, only 2 were incomplete. I returned 
                                        the game today, but I am working on one 
                                        of the two remaining sections. It should 
                                        be  done in the next update or two.
    
      Version 3.0 - August 10th, 2003 - I never did finish this FAQ, so I handed 
                                        it over to Hang Me 2002. He will finish 
                                        it for me. Enjoy.
    
      Version 4.0 - August 14th, 2003 - A new format has been added to the guide 
                                        and so has alot of new information. The 
                                        guide is not quite 100% complete, but 
                                        should be very soon.

    5. Characters
    =============================================================================
    
    Mario
    -----
      Our merry hero's favorite Item is the Mushroom, of course. He runs like the 
      dickens and can skillfully master any Mini-Game.
    
      Rating: 8\10 - One of the best!
    
    Luigi
    -----
      Mario's younger, yet taller, brother is a determined man of many talents. 
      His Item of choice is the Skeleton Key.
    
      Rating: 8.5\10 - For me, he seems to be better than Mario!
    
    Peach
    -----
      The lovely Princess Toadstool likes to use the Plunder Chest, revealing her 
      surprising habit of tricking her opponents.
    
      Rating: 5\10 - As a player, she's simply average. As a computer, she can be 
                     a *****.
    
    Yoshi
    -----
      The wide-eyed Yoshi is always full of energy. His favorite Item is the Warp 
      Block, and he apparently likes all-or-nothing competitions.
    
      Rating: 7\10 - Pretty good player, pretty bad AI.
    
    Wario
    -----
      When it comes to Items, Mario's rival prefers the Dueling Glove. His 
      cunning is unmatched, and he seems to be a master of the Duel Mini-Games.
    
      Rating: 4\10 - Never really used him, he seemed too horrid as a AI player.
    
    D.K.
    ----
      When it comes to strength, this mighty ape is number one! He clears all 
      Mini-Games with dominating performances. His favorite Item is the Bowser 
      Bomb, and he loves Happenings!
    
      Rating: 6\10 - Merely average.
    
    Bowser
    ------
      The king of the koopas, he will take coins, stars, and anything else from 
      you. He's not in the game as much, this time around though.
    
    Toad
    ----
      Find toad and give him 20 coins to get a shiny star. Finding him is the 
      whole point of the game.
    
    Baby Bowser
    -----------
      Land on his space and he'll take 5 coins. He appears a few other times as 
      well, bringing plenty of mayhem along with him.
    
    Boo
    ---
      Find boo and you can steal coins\stars from your opponents. For a small fee 
      of course ;)
    
    Koopa
    -----
      He will occasionally appear and give 10-coin prizes. He also serves as the 
      guide once in a while.

    6. Story
    =============================================================================
    
    *****************************************************************************
    Note: The story is copied directly from Nemesis' Mario Party 2 FAQ. Nemesis 
          copied the story from the official Mario Party 2 instruction manual. So 
          this part is Copyright Nintendo, 2000.
    *****************************************************************************
    
      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!

    7. Items
    =============================================================================
    
    Mushrooms
    ---------
      Use this item to get a red block which you get to hit twice instead of 
      once. Now you can get up to a "20" roll in a turn.
    
    Golden Mushrooms
    ----------------
      Use this item to get a gold block which you get to hit three times instead 
      of once. Now you can get up to a "30" roll in a turn.
    
    Skeleton Keys
    -------------
      Use this to open a locked gate. You can only use it when you are at the 
      gate. The gate will only stay open for you, so no one can follow you in.
    
    Plunder Chests
    --------------
      Use this to steal another opponents item. The one item you steal is random, 
      as you can't choose, so it's wise to use it when they have "good" items.
    
    Warp Blocks
    -----------
      Use this to switch positions with a random enemy. Useful when you are about 
      to reach baby bowser, or another unpleasant area.
    
    Dueling Gloves
    --------------
      Use this to challenge an opponent to a two-player duel battle mini-game. 
      You _DO_ get to choose the opponent and number of coins to play for, 
      thankfully.
    
    Magic Lamps
    -----------
      Use this awesome item to be warped straight to Toad! Obviously, this item 
      allows you to buy a star even if you are miles away from toad.
    
    Bowser Bombs
    ------------
      I don't really like this item. Use it and bowser will apperar from the baby 
      bowser location, use a gold block and take coins from anyone he passes! Be 
      careful...
    
    Bowser Suits
    ------------
      Use this and for one turn, any player you pass, you will steal 20 coins 
      from them! If everyone is in the same spot, you can make a bundle!
    
    Boo Bells
    ---------
      Use this item and call boo from anywhere on the game board! If you have 50 
      coins, it's best to use it then! Good for last minute victories!

    10. Mini-Game Land 
    =============================================================================
    
    Wooody
    ------
      You can buy mini-games here to play in the park. Once you buy them all you 
      get new options like mini-game coaster as well! At the start the games you 
      can buy are:
    
    -----> 4 Player
    -----> 1 VS. 3
    -----> 2 VS. 2
    
      After certain tasks are met, i believe you can also buy:
    
    -----> Dueling
    -----> Item
    
      There are 65 in all to buy, so it may take a while ;). My advice is to play 
      in mini-game stadim after it is unlocked. Unfortunantly, I think only about 
      20 games will be left to buy by the time it is availible.
    
    Mini-Game Park
    --------------
      You can play mini-games you've bought\recieved here. At the start you can 
      only play 1 vs. 3, 2 vs. 2, and 4 player mini games. Although I haven't 
      gotten them yet, i think you can play item, dueling, and other mini games 
      you buy from woody (after accomplishing certain tasks). This is a good 
      place to practice.
    
    Mini-Game Stadium
    -----------------
      Play pure mini-games here! This is a cool place to practice your skill as 
      well as rack up the coins. The course is a simple figure 8 and plays out 
      just like the previous one. You can choose 10, 20, or 30 turns. Neither 
      takes that long though, about 1/2 that of a normal game.
    
      There is another option where you can play to 3,5, or 7 wins. You simply 
      let a roulette pick, play the game, and repeat this until someone is the 
      victor. No prizes or coins are awarded though.
    
    Mini-Game Coaster
    -----------------
      This is availible after you buy all the mini-games first availible to buy.
