Mario Party 6

The game's plot line goes as follows. One day the sun, and the moon got into a large arguement, both debating on which of them was more popular. Eventually, Mario and the gang join in on the fray and try to end the tif, by throwing a party!

In Mario Party 6 up to four players take turns moving on board game-style stages, often playing multiplayer minigames to earn coins and stars. While the object of the game is to amass the most coins and stars before completing a set number of turns, the focus is on the competition itself more than the outcome.


Orbs are special items players can either collect on the board or buy with coins. They can be used in many ways to give a player an advantage, such as stealing coins from rivals, hampering a rival's progress, or quickly obtaining stars. In Mario Party 5 , these were called capsules.

Day & Night

On multiplayer boards the sun will periodically set or rise (every three turns), producing different effects. Changes include spaces moving, different characters appearing, and changes to minigames. This is reflected in two new characters, Brighton and Twila. This day and night system is reminiscent of Horror Land from Mario Party 2 .

Solo Mode

Solo mode is where a single player embarks on a special single-row board with a set number of spaces to collect minigames. The dice block for Solo Mode only has the numbers 1-6 on it. At the end of the board, there is an exclusive rare Mini-Game space, where the player, as the name states, gets a rare Mini-Game without needing to play it. If the player goes past the rare Mini-Game space, they fall off the board and lose all of the mini games they have acquired. So to win, the player must land on the rare Mini-Game space. Solo Mode is one of the most efficient ways to get both Mini-Games and Stars.
