You can find changes as you go along reading my FAQ.) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*** 1. Characters ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*** 2. Boards ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*** 3. Secret Boards ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*** 4. Story Mode ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*** 5. Party Mode ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*** 6. Options ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*** 7. Other Stuff ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*** 8. Ending of my FAQ. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~** * 1. Characters ~~Mario~~ Mario is back beginning his third party! While lounging in Princess Peach's castle, the Millenium Star crashes in the court yard. Him and his friends argue who should keep it. %%Luigi%% Luigi is tall, and younger than his brother Mario. Luigi like always is hidden in Mario's shadow, but maybe this time will come out on top and finally be the star. **Peach** Peach is a good choice to become a super star, but along with the others, she has alot of competition. With Daisy along now, she has a tough challenge. ^^Yoshi^^ Yoshi is the kindest of all, and is a dinosaur. He is very brave and someone who could definetly make it out to become the ultimate super star. ||Wario|| Wario is fat, and has wilt. He doesn't run very fast and is kind of a klutz. But he is tough and could break his way out and become the ultimate super star. ((DK)) Donkey Kong is the strongest of all and is a furry monkey. He would love the chance to become the super star and come out on top. He has many challenges ahead but could definetly complete them all. //Waluigi\ Waluigi is a new character joining the party and is very mischievous. He is sly and could be tricky and find a way to cheat his way to becoming the super star. ##Daisy## Daisy is said to be the most beautiful, but Peach doesn't seem to think so. Daisy could earn her way and earn the stamp of Beauty and could beat Peach. OOToadOO Although not playable, he helps his friends out on their journey. Now that the Millenium Star is here, Toad no longer holds the position to selling stars, he works at the shops. XXBoswerXX The king of trouble, it's Bowser. He causes danger and will do anything to stop Mario and his friends on their quest. xxBaby Bowserxx Bowser's little helper, Baby Bowser. He does anything he can to help out Bowser and cause extra trouble for the others. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~** 2. Boards Deep Bloober Sea: Take a quest underwater! Watch out for the big fish that can blow you across the board! This level is very easy. Spiney Desert: This board is tricky. The Millenium Star is there to sell you stars, while a mirage is somewhere around the level that looks exactly the same, watch out! Woody Woods: This level is hard. Many different turns, and you can lose your way very easily. The map helps. Creepy Caverns: Another hard board. A big level, and many different turns to make your character lost. Once again, the map helps. Chilly Waters: A snow board, pretty easy. Watch out for the breaking ice! If you are on it, and another player steps on, it will break! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~** 3. Secret Boards Waluigi's Island: A tricky level, many different steps set. Once you go through Story Mode, you will come across this when you are trying to collect the Mishief Star stamp. That's the only secret boards I know of at the moment! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~** 4. Story Mode You must collect Star Stamps: Wit Star Stamp: Competitor: Wario Kindness Star Stamp: Competitor: Yoshi Strength Star Stamp: Competitor: DK Love Star Stamp: Competitor: Luigi Courage Star Stamp: Competitor: Mario Beauty Star Stamp: Competitor: Daisy Mischief Star Stamp: Competitor: Waluigi I did this with Peach, so if you are a different character, this will change. Beating this will earn you the board, Waluigi's Island! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~** 5. Party Mode You can be any of the eight players. Battle Royal Map, Mini-Game room, etc. This is a good place to play with your friends. Story Mode is only 1-player. Here are your selecting characters! Mario Luigi Peach Yoshi DK Wario Waluigi Daisy Maybe they will make a Mario Party 4 with more characters? You should be able to be Toad, Boo, Koopa, Bowser, Baby Mario, Baby Bowser, Birdo, and others! This is just not enough! I want to be Toad, he's my favorite. Oh well, maybe they will make something like this in the future, and better gameplay, the classic game board is starting to get really boring, the mini-game are improved, 70 new ones, but after playing it the first night I got it, I pretty much played all of them. But still, I have alot left to earn. This one is really the best one of all three! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~** 6. Options By going to Princess Peach's Castle, you can change the options (Stereo to Mono) or listen to character's voices. Not much of a place where you would want to go all the time, but someplace good to visit at least once. You can also look at your stats from boards, and other stuff. Have fun! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~** 7. Other Stuff Here are some of the list of NEW items only! Secret items not listed. (To many secret items to list) Cellular Shopper - Call Toad or Baby Bowser (shops) Bowser Phone - Call Bowser to cause trouble for a player! Item Bag - Gives you three mystery items! Reverse Mushroom - Change the direction of a different player Poison Mushroom - One of your players can only move up to 3 spaces. Lucky Lamp - Calls the Mushroom Genie to change the place of the star. Boo Repelent - No stars taken away from another player or coins! Here are a few other things that I could mention about the Battle Royal Map: Battle Royal Map: Once you are playing a board game, you might actually get BORED of watching the computer play their item mini-games, or when they go to Shy Guy's game room. Well, you can turn off an action so you don't have to watch it! Press Start, and go to Settings. You can turn off the action where you don't have to watch the computer play their mini-games! Also, you can turn off the instructions for mini-games. Now you can just play a mini-game without going to the directions screen! Duel Map: I realized I didn't mention this since I am updating this FAQ. This is a new feature to the Mario Party series. You go head-to-head with another player or computer player and fight on a board like Battle Royal. Except, you get to have a partner with you. Mario Partner: Koopa Troopa Luigi Partner: Goomba Princess Peach Partner: Toad Yoshi Partner: Boo Donkey Kong Partner: Whomp Wario Partner: Bob-Omb Daisy Partner: Snifit Waluigi Partner: Piranha Plant You fight with energy (heart pieces) and you go around the board like usual. If you get behind a character, your parnter can attack! Same goes with behind, if you have a second partner, your partner from behind can attack. First one to loose all their hearts loses! If no one attacks each other or destroys someone, the turns will still go on! You go 20 turns, but you don't play a mini-game after every turn. Want more info?
