Mario Party

Mario Party is a video game series for the Nintendo 64 and Gamecube. All versions this far have in common that the main game is a board game where four characters compete, on board and in mini games which regularly tend to come up.

The first two editions of Mario Party were both released on the Nintendo 64 system and contained six characters: Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Yoshi, Wario and Donkey Kong.

Mario Party 3 was the last Mario Party released on the Nintendo 64 system and they added two completely new Nintendo characters. So there were now a total of eight characters to choose from: Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Yoshi, Wario, Donkey Kong and the new Waluigi and Princess Daisy.

Mario Party 4 was the first Mario Party that was released on the Nintendo Gamecube. This game features the same eight playable characters as Mario Party 3, which are Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Yoshi, Princess Daisy, Donkey Kong, Wario and Waluigi, and it featured Toad, Goomba, Bowser, and a slew of others.

Mario Party 5 came out in November 2003, and had three new playable characters; Boo, Koopa Kid, and Toad. Also, in this version for the Gamecube, Capsules replace items, and you can throw them up to ten spaces ahead. When a player lands on the space you threw it on, a certain event will happen, depending on what kind of Capsule it was. In the one player game, you must duel three Koopa Kids, who take their turns simultaneously and try to deplete your coins, and you are trying to do the same to them.
